John Skipworth is my great grandfather, and his daughter Mattie is my grandmother. She married Charlie Cates; they lived in Whitewright, Fannin, TX. There they raised a family of five children, James Afton, Robert, Charlie, Jackson ray and a daughter, perhaps named Mary. I have exchanged information with many Skipworth researchers but a few years ago I lost the information and need to start again. I hope to hear from you. I am David L. Cates, born in Illinois now living in Mansfield, TX.
