The Skelton Family


_________________________________________________________________________________________


Info:

This side of the family starts with a Sara Etta Skelton married to Andrew J Williams

Olive May Williams, known as Ollie, died at North Kansas City Hospital, and was buried in Lawson, MO at the Old Union Church, just east of town. We have a picture of her tombstone.

Sarah Etta Skelton died in North Kansas City, MO as well, but she was buried in a cemetery in Kansas City. We found the cemetery and the plot but there is no tombstone yet. We will try to put one there for her and Andrew Jackson Williams.

William John Skelton died in Asherville, MO, afterwards, Anna moved to Chicago, IL to be with family where she died 24 years later. We are working on finding the tombstone for both.

Solomon Skelton and Wife Mitty Gentry moved to Illinois before 1930 and together lived there for over 40 years. We just got pictures of there tombstones in Wesley Cemetery in Saline County. The pictures are on this site.

Because of logistics, I will only put direct relatives in this chart, maybe later I will add more and more census info. You will need to be able to read PDF formats so if you can't do that, download the program for free using the button provided at the bottom of the chart.
