Given under my hand the 9th day of march 1837. John Barret. Carol to the Skaggs Message Board at RootsWeb, Jan. 27, 2006: John Skaggs b. ca. 1728 was son of James & Rachel Skaggs, brother to Charles, Henry, Moses, etc., the Longhunters. This John Skaggs was married to Elizabeth (her last name is unknown). Proof: Deeds in Russell Co., VA, dated 5/22/1789 between John Scaggs and Elizabeth and Moses Skaggs .. 220 acres Signed: John Scaggs and Elisabeth Scaggs; and another dated 9/26/1791 between John Scaggs and Elizabeth and John Saddler .. 100 acres Signed: John Scaggs and Elizabeth Scaggs. This was the land patented to John Scaggs 6/24/1785. This John Skaggs was injured at the Battle of King's Mountain and received a pension. He was exempted from paying taxes in 1786 because of these injuries; his pension applications were in Russell Co., VA, Green Co., KY, and Barren Co., KY, 1789-1792. His pension can be found in the Library of Virginia and is quite lengthy. Proof that he was a brother to Henry, etc., & Moses Skaggs can be found in the Moses Skaggs lawsuit filed in 1836 in Green Co., KY. This John Skaggs had the following children: Susannah married William Queary in Green County, KY 11/2/1799 (consent of her father, John) unknown first name Skaggs married Thomas York unknown first name Skaggs married Laban Ellis Rebecca Skaggs unmarried as of 1836 The above are named in the Moses Skaggs papers. He also had the following children as well: Charles married Polly Wilcox in Barren County, KY 12/15/1821 (Charles married prior to Polly Wilcox a Sarah Grevat 2/3/1798 in Green County, KY) Zachariah married Nancy Wilcox in Barren County, KY 1/28/1822 ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ I think the John Skaggs who is son of James and Rachel is much younger, probably born 1745-1755. He could still have fought in the battle of King's Mountain in 1780. I think he died in Green Co., Kentucky sometime between 1799 and 1810. There is an "Eliza Skaggs" on the 1810 Federal Census of Green Co., Kentucky that I believe to be Elizabeth, widow of John Skaggs son of James & Rachel. I think John and Elizabeth's children were born from say 1775 to about 1800. --Jeremy Johnson <[email protected]>, Oct. 19, 2008, to [email protected] is NOT responsible for the content of the GEDCOMs uploaded through the WorldConnect Program.
