      Robert M. Crowl:
      23. WILMER4 SKEELS (JOSHUA W.3, NICHOLAS2, WILLIAM1)155 was born Abt. 1849 in Ohio, and died Bef. 1900 in Detroit, Michigan156. He married AMANDA H. SLOAN157,158, daughter of SAMUEL SLOAN and MARY HENDERSON. She was born Abt. 1856 in Ohio.
      Notes for AMANDA H. SLOAN:
      (from Patricia Sloan of Chattaroy, WA)
      "My great great Grandfather was William Sloan of Belmont co., Ohio (son of Samuel Sloan and Mary Jane Henderson). He had a sister Amanda who I am trying to trace. Ages ago I found an IGI entry for a marriage of an Amanda Sloan and Wilmer Skeeles but have never been able to confirm if this was indeed my Amanda.
      I find Wilmer and Amanda [SKULL] in the 1880 census living next door to Samuel Moore Sloan, brother to William and Amanda so I am guessing this is my Amanda. I also find in earlier census records Wilmer, son of Joshua Skeeles/Skeels/Scheles."
      Child of WILMER SKEELS and AMANDA SLOAN is:
      i. MELICENT L.5 SKEELS158, b. Abt. 1879.
