C. Hill Printing Co., 1925), 268, 269, __; page images available at Ancestry.com Date: Thu, 11 Oct 2007 Subject: Lydia Skaggs, wife of Mathias Harman To: [email protected]@rootsweb.com Hello All, In the Skaggs genealogies that I have saw, Lydia Skaggs, d/o James & Rachel, wife of Mathias Harman is always shown as being born around 1736, yet she was still having children as late as 1798. That doesn't work! According to what I have the eldest of her children was born in 1778 and the youngest in 1798. Those are probably approximate dates. However, If those dates are even near to correct she's going to have to have been born as late as 1750. Does anyone know where the dates for the children of James Skaggs and Rachel come from? I can't help but wonder if all of them weren't a bit younger than what many of us think? Jeremy Johnson, Taylor Co., Kentucky
