Do you know of any other children, in addition to Nathaniel G., of John Wiley Skipper?

I have a James/Jacob Skipper (below), but he may have been descended from a John W. Skipper or a Jacob Skipper (just my guess). A couple of Jacob Skippers (probably father and son) were in Wayne Co., NC in the 1790s through at least 1812 (second paragraph below).--

SK1 James “Jack/Jacob” Leonard Skipper Sr., b. 11/13/1835 in AL, mar. Virginia A. ?-Durr ( 1841 in GA) ca. 1856 in AL, d. 9/15/1904 in AL, bur. in Dothan City Cemetery,
Houston County AL

"Jacob" had a son, SK12 John W., b. ca. 1867 in AL

James/Jack/Jacob Skipper was recorded as living in Tucker’s store in Montgomery Co., AL in the 1880 census. His father was recorded as being born in NC, and his mother was recorded as being born in GA. A Jacob Skipper, possibly J.L.’s father or grandfather, was recorded as witnessing a deed in Wayne Co., NC on 8/7/1794. Jacob Skipper left a will in that county on 11/6/1804, leaving property to his wife Barbary, daughters Barbary and Hannah, and other children.Jacob Skipper (possibly a son?) was born ca. 1804 in Brunswick Co, NC and died ca. 1858 in Houston Co, GA.
