Skellengers-Sussex County NJ - - HELP?

I am going to list the information that I have regarding the Skellenger Family. If there is anyone that can add information please do!

James Skellenger
born: abt. 1788
Elizabeth Ayers (dau of Levi Ayers)

Charlotte or Charlotta b. abt 1817
Ester b. abt 1819
Seeley b. abt 1821
Halsey b. abt 1823
Allen (or Allan) b. abt 1829

Anyone with any information please post!

Allen (or Alan) born abt. 1829 d. 3/15/1861
Susan E. Paugh
born 3/2/1834 d. 4/4/1908

Hettie b. 2/14/1853 d. 1929
George b. 6/15/1854
David b. 12/28/1858
Jason T. (name?) b. 1859 or 1860 d. 3/1862
Isaac b. 4/24/1861 d. (?)

Notes: Allen Skellenger was murdered in Stokes State Forest by John Cruver. Susan remarried Harrison Ayers and had five more children (surname Ayers). Susan and Harrison are buried in Layton Cemetery. The burial place of Allen is unknown. The story of Allen's death is in the Snells History of Sussex County. "Hettie" died unmarried and is also buried in Layton Cemetery, Layton, New Jersey. I have a death certificate for a child who was 3 years old and was the son of "Allan Skellinger". this child died of diptheria. Census records for 1860 show a son "Jason T. Skellenger" who was 4 months old at the time. I also have a son Isaac, but I am not sure where I got that information. I have been told that "Isaac Skellenger", if that is his name, moved to Port Jervis, NY. Will have to check the 1870 census records for sandyston.

Now about the other Skellenger children:

George Skellenger
Emma Kays

Harrison married Lula Kent
Anna Laura married George Kent
Susan E. married Judson DeGroat
James married Hertha Risse
Emma married Levi Clark
David married Bertha Norman
William married Alice Medaugh


If anyone has any information to share about the above, please post!
