      Information came from Richard E. Skeels. It originally appeared in Skeels Family History 1720-1980 (which includes the text of a hard back bound book, compiled and printed by George W. Roof in 1903 in Albion, IN). Important contributors to Section II of the above text were: Hazel Brown McCollough & Mrs. J. Harry Kidwell & Mrs. Edmund Schafer & Col. Mortimer Bennet. Kenton M. Kidd organized and compiled the combined three book edition of Skeels Family History 1720-1980. Part of the earlier books were set in type at South Side Press by Wayne Favinger, aged 15 yrs:

      John D. Skeels is buried in Sparta Cemetery off Hwy 30 right outside Kimmell, Noble Co., Indiana. He and his brother were in a truck accident. His brother Lawrence was killed immediately, and John succumbed to his injuries later. John worked for the Kimmell grocery warehouse and supervised the onion harvests - crating and getting them to the warehouse to be distributed. (The Skeels/Herrons arrived in Noble County in 1832.)
