    • RESEARCH_NOTES:
      1. The book "The National Cyclopaedia of American Biography," v. 27, p. 325, entry for David Edward Skinner (b. 1867): "His first paternal American ancestor was John Skinner, born at Braintree, England, who was one of the founders of Hartford, Conn., in 1636, the line of descent from John and his wife Mary Loomis being through their son John and his wife Mary Easton, (etc.)."

      2. Per 9 Feb 2002 email of Ellen Baker : Mary (b. around 1620, m. #1 John Skinner, one of the original proprietors of Hartford, Connecticut, and his name is on the Founder's Monument there and in 1640 owned 22 acres in a division of upland in Hartford, Connecticut, east of the river, had 5 children, Mary (m. Robert Reeve), Ann (m. John Colt Jr.), John Jr. (Corporal of Train Band, a form of militia organized around towns in New England, m. Mary Easton), Joseph (m. Mary Filley) and Richard (m. Mary Grant?); Mary m. #2 Owen Tudor, had 5 children, Sarah (twin) (m. James Porter), Samuel (twin) (m. #1 Abigail Filley; m. #2 Joanna Taylor), Owen Jr. (never married), Jane (m. Samuel Smith), and Mary (m.#1 John Orton; m. #2 John Judson)).

      3. The book "Families of Early Hartford, Connecticut," Lucius Barnes Barbour, 1982 ed.:
      "John Skinner died 1650, mar. Mary Loomis who m. Owen Tudor Nov. 13, 1651. She died Aug. 19, 1680, dau. of Joseph Loomis of Windsor. Early member 1 Ch. Name on Founders Monument. Children:
      Mary, b. 1633, m. Robert Reeve.
      Ann, b. 1635, m. John Colt.
      John, b. 1637, m. Mary Easton.
      Joseph, b. 1639, m. Mary Filley Apl. 5, 1666.
      Richard, b. 1643.
      [Kerry's note: The birthdates of the children look suspicious especially considering the same author in his separate full entry for John, the Child, shows a 1641 birthdate which varies from the 1637.]
      An original proprietor; his home lot in 1639 was on the west side of Main St. a little below the present corner of Pearl St. but this was given to Richard Olmsted, he receiving in exhange a lot on the highway now Trumbull St.; juror 1639. John Talcott, in his will Aug. 12, 1659, mentions his kinsman John Skinner as 'living in his service' and as John Talcott's mother was Anne, daughter of William Skinner, it is probable that John Skinner Sr. came from Braintree, Co. Essex, Eng."

Loomis, Berea, Ohio, third (1908) edition, chapter: "The Descendants of Joseph Loomis (1590-1658) in America," subchapter "First Generation, children of Joseph Loomis of Windsor, CT.," pp. 126-128:
      "Genealogical investigations have been unable to establish definitely the order of the children of Joseph Loomis, and it is considered advisable to give here the conflicting evidence:
      Possible order of children:
      1. Mrs Olmsted, b. 1615, md. 1640. [Sarah]
      2. Mrs. Hull, b. 1617, md. 1641. [Elizabeth]
      3. Joseph, b. 1618, md. 1646.
      4. Mrs. Skinner, b. 1620, md. 1638. [Mary]
      5. John, b. 1622, md. 1648.
      6. Thomas, b. 1624, md. 1653.
      7. Nathaniel, b. 1626, md. 1653.
      8. Samuel, b. 1628, md. 1653.
      Probably, however, the order was as follows:
      Joseph, b. 1615.
      Sarah, b. 1617.
      Elizabeth, b. abt 1619.
      Mary, b. abt 1620.
      John, b. 1622.
