Pension applications for Archibald Skaggs, s/o Lucy and Charles, and his cousins, Henry Skaggs and Archibald Whitt, s/o Susannah Skaggs and the Rev. Richard Whitt, place these families in SC before their move to the Montgomery Co., Fincastle Co., Va. area. We are seeking to learn where they were before they show up in SC. Thanks, Jemima Gee Morse
