Thomas Banks Skidmore was born 04 May 1835 in Staffordshire, England.Parents were Benjamin b.02 Aug 1806 in Wednesbury, Staffordshire,England and Esther Weymouth. I have done a lot of research on the Skidmores of Staffordshire though would like to exchange notes and confirm my information and possibly go back even further when the name was believed to be Scudamore and of Spanish origin. Thomas migrated to Melbourne Australia with his brother John and then to NSW, he died in 1901 in Waterloo District,NSW,Australia.

Parents of Miranda and Sarah Fletcher

Miranda Fletcher was b. Abt 1831 in Mississippi and married Collier Barksdale Gates. Sarah was b. 1829 and married Morgan Gates.Their Parents were John Fletcher and his first wife Sarah(Sally)Merchant. Different sources mention John being the son of Capt. James Fletcher who was elected Choctaw Chief 1838-1842, although John is not listed among the children James had with his wife Nancy? Sarah Merchant I have no information at all except the 1880 census where Miranda states her mother was born in Mississippi possibly also of Indian herritage? John stayed behind in Mississippi after the removal of Indians to Indian Nation Territory 1830- known as the "Trail of Tears" after the signing of the "Dancing Rabbitt Creek" treaty. I don't know a lot about the circumstances but I think those who had chose to stay behind had to give up their American Native herritage.
Would love to learn more about these families if anyone has any information I would be happy to hear from you.
Thank you
