My 2nd great grandfather was William James Madison Skipper, born 8-12-1849 Henry Co Alabama. His father :James M. Skipper, 1824-1849 born in Cumberland Co. NC: His mother,Anna Jane Craddock born in GA. Grandparents: James Skipper & Patsy Carter married 1-1823 Cumberland Co NC And William and Charlotte Simpler Craddock married 1-25-1825 Georgia. James Madison Skipper & Anna Jane Craddock married 3-11-1847 in Henry Co.AL. Their first child, Mary Jane Skipper 2-1848: 2nd William James Madison ( Wm J.M / WJM) Skipper 8-12-1849. I know what happens after they are born.
I want to know EXACTLY who James Madison's brothers/sisters were. James M Skipper, 'Alabama, Estate Files, 1830-1976' In these papers Thomas Craddock is administrator and Wm the guardian. Is Thomas Anna's brother or Uncle? https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/FQN8-HNG
Another estate the children are heirs to is that of James Carter, which would be their great grandfather? Patsy's father? Patsy Carter, 'North Carolina, Marriages, 1759-1979' 2nd child, my 2nd great grandfather: W. J. M. (William James Madison) Skipper and Martha A. Lucas,were married 02 Feb 1871 in Henry County Alabama. They began their family in Alabama but moved to Overton Rusk Co Texas between 1873-1877.
Six Children were born 1878-1888 before the Skippers moved to Ringgold, Bienville Parish La. Last two children were born 1889 and 1892 in Louisiana. I know very little about Martha Ann Lucas except the name William Lucas born 1813 South Carolina and Handy ?? born about 1815 in Georgia. I would love to know about Martha Ann Lucas's family, my 3rd great grandparents.
