In a research of the Skidmores of Randolph county, there was a mention that several of the Skidmores who were there went south through NC due to Indian problems.

I am descended from Samuel Skidmore, whose brother Joseph was located in Randolph Co (it was VA then. Wish I had gotten into this when I attended Marshall, or when I lived in Lawrence Co. KY).

If you run into anything on James Nelson Skidmore, father of W.D. and Mary Jane, please let me know. Mary Jane is my greatgrandmother. It seems both Joseph and Samuel named their sons James N. Skidmore. Joseph's will mentions a daughter-in-law named Emily. My greatgreatgrandmother's name was Delilah. She and James disappear from the records after Mary Jane's birth (1846) and the 1850 Census. The children were raised by guardians.

The information I have obtained came from the online genealogies of the Brunson Family and the Faris/Phares Family. Warren Skidmore's book on the Skidmore family was helpful. I have not found a copy of Jerry Alsup's book on the Skidmore family yet.

Please keep in touch so we cna share info as we find it.
