Introduction

 

This collection was given by John D. Skilton in 1991.  Further information regarding Alvah Stone Skilton and Amanda Jane Davis Skilton may be found in Gilded Age Collection 45, the Skilton/Davis/Heyman Collection.

 

Biographical Sketch

 

The Skilton family line can be traced back to John Skilton of Coventry, England, who was born in 1688.  He married Mary Bennitt on 23 June 1717, and the couple had four children.  The oldest, Henry Skilton, was born on 19 November 1718.  Henry emigrated to the United States of America in 1735 and married Tabitha Avery on 9 July 1841 in Connecticut.  The couple had eight children but only one surviving son, Avery.  He was born on 30 April 1748 at Preston, Connecticut, and married Parthenia Judd on 26 March 1771.  Avery and Parthenia had seven children, including James Skilton (born 10 April 1777).  James married Chloe Steele on 30 June 1799 in Watertown, Connecticut.  Chloe bore ten children, with Elijah Steele Skilton as the oldest.  He was born on 17 May 1800 and wed Elizabeth Wilson in Hunter, New York, on 1 April 1827.  The couple had five children, including Alvah Stone Skilton.  Alvah married Amanda Jane Davis on 20 December 1865.

 

The Davis family line traces back to John S. Davis, who was born in Maryland on 28 March 1806.  His mother died when he was very young, and John was raised by his maternal grandparents, John and Mary Ann Sowers.  They settled in Ohio in 1811.  John resided in Galion, Ohio, for almost thirty years, where he married Catharine Nave (or Neff) on 17 May 1843.  Their oldest daughter, Amanda Jane Davis, was born on 17 February 1844.

 

Alvah Stone Skilton was born in 1836 in Ravenna, Ohio.  At age eighteen, Skilton began working as an engineer for the Bellefontaine & Indianapolis Railroad in Galion, Ohio, a position he held until the beginning of the Civil War.  He enlisted in the army of the Union in 1861 and received the rank of Captain in Company I of the 57th Ohio Volunteer Infantry.  He participated in such engagements as the Battle of Shiloh (Tennessee), the Vicksburg Campaign, Missionary Ridge (Tennessee), Kennesaw Mountain (Georgia), and the Atlanta Campaign.  In 1864, Alvah and 83 other men of the 57th were captured by the Confederates at the Battle of Atlanta.  He was held as a prisoner of war for eight and a half months, moving between eight prisons in four different states.  At one point, Skilton managed to escape captivity and spent two months behind enemy lines attempting to reach Union forces; he was recaptured close to Union lines in western North Carolina, near Ducktown, Tennessee.  Skilton was honorably discharged on 13 April 1865.  Following the Civil War he returned to Galion and his work on the Bellefontaine & Indianapolis Railroad.  He married Amanda Jane Davis, the daughter of a prominent Monroeville, Ohio, businessman and banker.  The couple would have four children: John Davis, Elizabeth Robey, Mary Grace, and Catharine Amanda.  Alvah began working for the Merchant’s Union Express Company, as well as assistant assessor for Monroeville distilleries, before prospering as a grain and seed dealer in Monroeville.  He also served as Huron County, Ohio, justice of the peace.  He and Amanda resided at their Monroeville estate of Ingleside Farm, a well-known structure in the town.  Their daughter, Catharine, would remain at her parents’ homestead following their deaths.  Captain Alvah Stone Skilton died on 27 July 1887.

 

Elizabeth Robey Skilton, born in 1866, attended Oberlin College, Oberlin, Ohio.  She remained unmarried and died in 1909.  Mary Grace Skilton was educated in the schools of Gambier, Ohio, and wed Clarence L. Powley; and the couple resided in Monroeville, Ohio.  They had a daughter, Jane, who would marry LaVerne Heyman.  Catharine Amanda Skilton, youngest daughter of Alvah and Amanda, also received her education at Gambier, Ohio, and remained single throughout her life.

 

Rev. John Davis Skilton was born on 18 March 1867 and married Ida Beistle on 24 June 1904.  The couple had three children—Henry, Jane, and John, Jr.  Rev. John Skilton received his education from Kenyon College, Gambier, Ohio, and Divinity School, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  He initially worked as assistant rector at St. Paul’s Rectory in Cleveland, Ohio, and then spent several years working in Nice, France.  Upon his return to the states, Rev. Skilton served as headmaster for several academies: Cheltenham Academy (Ogontz, Pennsylvania); Melrose Academy (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania); Chestnut Hill (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania); Cheshire School (Cheshire, Connecticut); Lackawana School (Scranton, Pennsylvania); and Tower Hill School (Wilmington, Delaware).

 

Scope and Content

 

This collection, dating from the 1849 to 1978, consists of documents, correspondence, and photographs relating to three generations of the Skilton family.  Included are: bills and financial records; materials related to the schooling of various Skilton family members (such as books, work, and records); information relevant to Monroeville, Ohio—the residence of Alvah and Amanda Skilton; records of the Daughters of the American Republic (D.A.R.), of which Catharine Skilton became State Chairman of Patriotic Education and Americanization; diaries, letters, photographs, and other documents relating to travel, including Rev. John D. Skilton’s European trip; information regarding the assorted schools and churches with which Rev. Skilton was associated; scrapbooks; genealogical materials of the Skilton family and ancestors; along with other  documents relating to Skilton family members.

 

Also included in this collection are several boxes of photographs relating to the Skiltons.  These consist of and are not limited to: family members (such as Elijah Skilton, Amanda Skilton, and Rev. John Davis Skilton, among others); associates of the family; outdoor scenes and gatherings; photographs from European travels; Kenyon College; and Skilton family homesteads.

 

Extensive correspondence is contained within this collection as well.  Amanda Skilton received letters from several individuals during the American Civil War—the main portion being from her brother, Union soldier Jim Davis of the 101st Ohio Volunteer Infantry (OVI).  Also included is correspondence from other Union soldiers: Frank Beverstock, Co. A, 3rd Virginia Cavalry; Harry Logan, 1st Independent Ohio Battery; James Stover, 101st OVI; Lyman Parcher, Co. E, 101st OVI (as a lieutenant) and Co. B., 179th OVI (as a captain); and William H. Pelton, 57th OVI.  Correspondence in the years following the war includes personal and business communication.  In Box 2, the correspondence is, for the most part, arranged alphabetically into folders by the surname of the letter writers.  Various letters from Amanda’s daughters, Elizabeth (Bess or Bessie) and Catharine, are in the collection, as well as letters from her daughter-in-law, Ida, and cousin, Harriet.  The largest amount of correspondence, however, is from her son, Rev. John D. Skilton.

 

Incoming and outgoing correspondence relating to Catharine Amanda Skilton is included in this collection as well.  Contained here are a number of letters written to Catharine’s father, John D. Skilton, and sister, Elizabeth.  The other two daughters of Alvah and Amanda Davis Skilton, Mary Grace and Elizabeth Robey, have correspondence contained in these records as well.

 

The correspondence of Reverend John D. Skilton is also included in this collection.  Aside from the letters to his mother, John wrote to various individuals on personal and business matters.  Letters written during his time at Kenyon College and his tenure at various institutions and academies (including the American Church in Nice, France) are also present. A fair amount of incoming and outgoing correspondence between John and his wife, Ida, is also contained within this collection.  Furthermore, correspondence relating to John and Ida Skilton’s son, John D. Skilton, Jr., is contained here.  The son of John D. Skilton, Jr. (named Henry) also wrote several letters to his parents, which can be found here.
