NOTE: NSDAR No. 73264 says m 1841 (Thomas P. Skillings is #12178.)

Thomas was born 5 Feb 1815 in Gray, Cumberland, ME.(6064) est based on age at death; listed as under 10y in 1820 USC; age 32y in 1845 church census; age 37y in 1850 USC Gray, Cumberland, ME; age 45y in 1860 USC Gray, Cumberland, ME; age 53y in 1870 USC; age 65y in 1880 USC Thomas was the son of Edward (Edmund) Skillings and Eunice Libby.

Thomas died 17 Aug 1895 in Gray, Cumberland, ME, at 80 years of age.(6065) age 80y 6m 12d

His body was interred aft 17 Aug 1895 in Gray, Cumberland, ME, Gray Corner Cemetery.(6066) Occupation: farmer 1850-1870 in Gray, Cumberland, ME.(6067) Thomas was listed as the head of a family on the 1850 Census in Gray, Cumberland, ME.(6068) Thomas was listed as the head of a family on the 1860 Census in Gray, Cumberland, ME.(6069) Thomas was listed as the head of a family on the 1870 Census in Gray, Cumberland, ME.(6070) Thomas was listed as the head of a family on the 1880 Census in Gray, Cumberland, ME.(6071) Libby No. 10-5-3-4-3-2

Three additional children can be derived from various USC: Wm Manchester 8y b 1837; Eunice b 1831; and Wesley b 1835. All are unlikely children of this family because of age of Eliza and she and Thomas were m 1841. William Manchester was prob a foster child living with them; the other two were listed w/family in 1850 USC, but they were too old for Eliza to be their mother. Also, Thomas Jefferson Skillin said that he was one of seven children.

1845 Church Census by Rev. Allen Lincoln, Gray, ME shows Thomas age 32y, Eliza Ann 24y; Lucy Ellen age 4y; Thomas Jefferson age 3y; and Wm. Manchester age 8y.
