Am looking for any information, documents, photos, letters, by, about or from Dr. Edwin H. Skipwith, who came to LV,NM in 1880 and left in 1889 for Roswell, where he continued his medical practice until his death abuot 1905. Any info on the whereabouts of his descendents appreciated as well as his medical kit and photos, letters, etc.
He was a very important physician in LV for the 10 years he was there. He divorced his first wife who apparently preferred to remain in close contact with relatives in Little ROck, Arkansas, and remarried late in the 1880s and moved to Roswell with wife Willi, where in his 50s he fathered at least three children.
Any info, especially contacts with or about descendents, will be deeply appreciated.
