      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:
      Name, dates, & places
      "William Skeels II was born in Maryland. He was married to Rachel Herron, near Baltimor. His wife was of Scottish descent. From Maryland they removed to Jefferson county,[sic] Ohio, and settled near Steubenville. He died in that county in 1824 and his widow remained as such for thirty years."
