I am Mary Helen HANLEY, my maiden name was SKINNER. My father was Lloyd Jackson SKINNER born on Mar 2, 1922 in Winberry Creek, Oregon and died on Feb 17 1982 in Lodi, California. My mother was Helen Margaret SHAW however they were never married. My grandfather was Cloyd Walter SKINNER born on Oct 18 1897 in Mohawk, Oregon and died on Jun 25 1929 as a result of a dynamite explosion. He was married to Ester E. RENFRO.
Ester was born on Dec 4 1901 in Winberry, Oregon. Ester is the daughter of Alexander Jack RENFRO. She died on Jun 12, 1939 in Eugene, Oregon. Her father Alexander was born on Dec 23 1862, place unknown. He died on Nov 13 1942 in Lowell, Oregon and was married to Harriet VEACH. Next in line is Stephen Collier RENFRO, born on Mar 23 1868 in Missouri and married to Malinda ANTHONY. He died on Feb 17, 1885 in Fall Creek, Oregon by falling in the creek and drowning. Stephen's father was Joseph Cephus RENFRO, born in 1804 in Kentucky and died in Feb 1886 in Madison Co., Arizona. He was married to Cinnthy Rolin. The name at this point seems to change to RENTFRO. Joseph was the son of Absalom Taylor RENTFRO who was married to Chloe B. RENFRO. At this point it gets a little confusing. Next is Reverend James William RENTFRO, then William R. then William RENTFRO all of Virginia.
