Trying to find all the children of Asa D. Skinner & Elizabeth Curtis.

Date of marriage for Elizabeth Curtis & Asa D. Skinner Marriage: 17 JAN 1829 , Marengo, Alabama .

Elizabeth Curtis was born abt 1813 in Tn, she is the daughter of Samuel Curtis born 1751 Md & Elizabeth W Kennon born abt 1758 Nc.

Asa D. Skinner was born in 1805 in Marengo Co. AL, he is the son of Josiah Skinner born abt 1764 in NC & Nancy Lister born abt 1777 in NC.

Asa Dunlap Skinner died in 1837 & his widow married Joseph Agee of Marengo Ala.

Two of the Skinner children are listed on the 1850 census in the household of Joseph Agee.

William C. Skinner, age given as 20, and Eramus D. Skinner, age given as 19.

William is also listed with his wife Jane S. Price born in SC & their 2 month old daughter, Florence.

Elizabeth Curtis Skinner Agee's mother is also listed, Elizabeth W. Kennon, age given as 72. Also in the household of Joseph Agee & Elizabeth Curtis Skinner Agee , is Elizabeth's sister Dolly's, three children. Dolly Curtis married Brackett Owen Watkins on 11 Dec 1834 in Marengo Ala. Their three children are:

Christopher C. Watkins age listed as 15 yrs old,

Mary Elizabeth Watkins age listed as 13 yrs. old,

Brackett Owen Watkins age listed as 10 yrs old,


After the death of Dolly Curtis [ 1815-1841] & her husband Brackett Owen Watkins [1811-1842], the Watkins children went to stay with their Aunt Elizabeth Curtis Skinner Agee.

This Mary Elizabeth Watkins, grew up & married another son of Joseph Agee & his 1st wife  Sarah Elizabeth Dumas~Zachariah Dumas AGEE, he was born 1832.


Christopher C. Watkins grew up & married Mary Elizabeth Powell of Tn.


Their daughter, Mary Elizabeth Watkins born 1858,  married a son of Isham Avery Agee & Mary Elizabeth Skinner~William Lawrence Agee, he was born 1856.

Also, in the same year census.[ 1850 ]...

.in the household of Joseph Agee's first born son, by his 1st  wife Sara Elizabeth Dumas~

Isham Avery Agee born 1828 , is listed with his wife Mary Elizabeth Skinner, her age is given as 17 & their first born son Lucius A. age 1 M.

This Mary Elizabeth Skinner is my GG Grandmother.

I have not been able to find anything of her parents, unless it is Asa D. Skinner & Elizabeth Curtis.


Does anyone know if she is their daughter?


I do appreciate any help.
