Memories about Algernon SkinnerEdit
- Sally Swanson writes on March 13, 2008: As you probably know, Algernon and Abner J. Skinner are brothers. Abner J. and his second wife Harriet Romer Mauderville are buried in Laurel Grove Cemetery, Port Jervis, New York. Also, one son, James A. Skinner is buried there. First wife of Abner J. was Sarah M. Pond who died in 1895 in Middletown, Orange County, New York on Stage Farm. I have been unable to trace Sarah, but I am working on it. My grandmother is a daughter of Abner J. and Sarah M. Pond Skinner and married George Roy Fear in Montclair, New Jersey and moved to California in the early 1920's.
