Skinner’s obituary in the Logansport Weekly Journal (10 April 1880) states that he moved as a youth with his parents to Ohio, then in 1836 with his family to Adams Township, Cass Co., Indiana. His funeral was one of the largest in the township. Thomas B. Helm’s History of Cass County, Indiana, states that Thomas and his wife were among the founding members of the Twelve Mile Christian Church and donated land for the first church building.
