I don't have access to 1850 census online, maybe you can find someone who does. But, I see on the 1860 census for KY there are 7 Skiles families in Warren Co, KY. Check the Warren Co, KY GenWeb site, click and look at what is available. One item caught my interest, a volunteer who will do specific lookups and they include marriages 1797-1851. Maybe you can find Jacob and Sarah/Sally, then that would put your Skiles line in the county.

Also, I notice a couple of the older ones are born in VA, this might lead you to where the family was prior to KY.

Did a real quick search on Skiles forum, typed in Jacob in the Search This Forum box, I don't have time to pursue, just had a call from a paying client, heading for the courthouse. Just go to Skiles forum, in the box thats say Jump to # -- type in 300. It is a response, so you'll have to click and look at earliest post, then follow down on other responses. Looks like others are working on Dallas Co, TX Skiles that came from Warren Co, KY. I'll keep my fingers crossed, betcha they're your line, too.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
