From a collection of Newspaper articles residing in the LDS library in Salt Lake City.(16 Dec 1904)
"Sunday (Dec 12)- Obit- "Uncle Jap" Skinner, Elder W.J.Skinner of Jonesburg, died at his home Sunday. One of the oldest residents of the county,native born, and lived in this county all his life. He was about 80y old,and had been ill for about 2 weeks. Member of the Christian church, and had preached the gospel for many years.
He was twice married,the first wife dying some years ago. About 2y ago he married the widow of John Heebner, and she survives. Also 2 sisters and 5 children: Mrs.Laura Crumb of Pilot Grove,MO;Jas.Skinner,New Franklin,MO;Jap.Jr. of Indiana;Tim Skinner and Mrs.Jane Fleener of Jonesburg.
