George Skipper               I finished the line,.Deborah
James A. Skipper became a well respected member of his community in Gibson County, Tennessee.  He was recognised as a successful farmer and a member of the local school board.  He was supposed to be buried in the Oldfield Cemetery (now Floyd's Chapel) in Crockett County, Tennessee, but I have looked around the cemetery and have not found him nor is he listed on the cemetery list.  He died from tuberculosis and was buried the very same day according to the death certificate.  It makes me wonder if he was buried quickly to prevent anyone contracting tuberculosis which was feared in those days.  He was probably not embalmed.  The whereabouts of his last remains are a mystery.  To see some information on James you can go to the following website and just do a search for Skipper.

As you know, Silas married Sofrana Hoge in 1865 after his first wife, Anne, died.  Silas is listed as having taking part in the Civil War as a confederate soldier.  Sometime after 1865 Silas and his new wife and family, as well as some of his previous family, moved to Cotton Plant, Dunklin County, Missouri.  I don't know what happened to him after that.  His son James A. stayed behind of course.


This little village, in the Eight District, is the seat of a splendid school, known as the Neboville High School. This school has more than a local reputation as an educational institution. In addition to the prescribed State curriculum, the full course of study embraces the higher branches of learning, so that pupilsare given the benefit of a thorough academic course. The very best instructors are provided, and the school is fully equipped and systematized for imparting an education. Boarding pupils are provided for, so that an education may be obtained at the institution at very moderate cost. The school is under the management of a board of education.This board is composed of the following gentlemen: Dr. A. E. Turner, secretary; A. H. Sanford, J. T. Carlton, H. Banks, N. C. Corley, R. Q. Scott, J. A. Skipper, and J. C. Carlton. The first three of these are the school directors of the district, who act in conjunction with the others in the control of the Neboville High School.

Jim Herring

Jean Herring is Believed to be the sister of George Skipper Jr. 

 I descend from DAVID and JEAN (SKIPPER) HERRING b 1670s. They lived circa 1700-1735 on Potecasy Percosson apparently near Nottoway Indian Tribe with whom Jean's father GEORGE SKIPPER was closely associated. They had sons ROBERT, JOHN, THOMAS, and WILLIAM JAMES HERRING, believed to be named for a WILLIAM JAMES of the area. Am very interested in Potecasy locale and its first residents. Jim Herring, Jackson MS.

My 4th great grandpa WM. JAS. HERRING would have grown up with his first cousin BARNABY SKIPPER at Potecasi, and settled ca. 1753 near the east bank of the Big Pee Dee River south of the Pee Dee Indians, west of Marion SC.   Jim
