Not my family line, just sharing.

The following Biographical sketch was copied from the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI, INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F.A. Battey & Co., Publishers. 1883.
page 746, Van Buren Township, Pulaski County, Indiana.

"PETER SKILLEN was born in Shelby County, Ohio, April 10, 1832, and is the son of BENJAMIN and CATHERINE (HARTMAN) SKILLEN, who were born in Pennsylvania, but moved to Shelby County, Ohio, when quite young, and were there married. About the year 1842, they came to this county (Pulaski County, Indiana), and here the father died, the mother still surviving him. Their children were the following: MARY, JAMES, PETER, EVA J., SARAH, ELIZABETH, LETTIE J., JONATHAN, and two not named. PETER SKILLEN was married November 20, 1853, to MARIA BADGER, who was born in Marion County, Ohio, September 15, 1833. He then moved on a farm in this township, which had been given to him by his father. In March, 1874, he purchased and moved upon his present farm. There have been born to him ten children, as follows: MARY J. (deceased), BENJAMIN R., HELEN C. (deceased), SARAH M., MARY C., DANIEL A., WILLIAM (deceased), LETTIE E., AVILLA M., and WILLIAM W."
