I do not believe your L. T. Skaggs is the son of Christian Skaggs of Lawrence Co., KY. If you look at the 1880 census for Lawrence you will see that Lewis is still living at home:
1880 Census, Lawrence Co., KY.
Scaggs, Christian--72---VA
Scaggs, Elizabeth--38---VA
Scaggs, Rutha------36---KY
Scaggs, Nancy E.---21---KY
Scaggs, Lewis------25---KY
How could he have been in 1880 Census for Lawrence Co., KY and Franklin Co., Arkansas.
I am adding what I have on Christian Skaggs. It is taken from Juanita Luttrell book Ky Skaggs Records.
Big Blain United Baptist Church:
1st Sat. 1826
Brother William Holbrook and Brother Mathias Kelly appointed to sight Brother Solomon and Brother Christian Skaggs.
Will of Peter Skaggs, Will book 1 Page 19
23 day of 1833, Lawrence Co., KY
Names wife Patty Skaggs, Youngest son Christian Skaggs gets $50 and no more. Solomon Skaggs as executor and everything else divided amount my loving children (not Named).
Christian Skaggs and Elizabeth Perry married 24 Dec 1829, Lawrence Co., KY
I hope this helps. Wanda Sparkman
