Source: Mary Anne Myers (firstname.lastname@example.org) questions the assumption that this Jonathan Skeen is the son of Jonathan and Susannah Rees Skeen. She states that this is not proven. She believes that there were 2 or 3 Jonathan Skeen who could have been Jane "Jennie" Skeen's father.

NOTE: It is a SPECULATION that this Jonathan Skeen is the son of Jonathan and Susannah Rees. I have also recorded another son Jonathan Skeen RIN 32913 as their son. These may be one and the same person, or one of these Jonathan Skeens may be misplaced in this family.
CAUTION: There is much speculation here, all needs to be proven, use this information for research leads only.
NOTE: It is a SPECULATION that this Jonathan Rees Skeen is the son of Jonathan and Susannah Rees, based on the name Rees. However, I have previously recorded another son Jonathan Skeen RIN 5679 as their son. These may be one and the same person, or one of these Jonathan Skeens may be misplaced in this family.

NOTE: I believe this J. Rees Skeen may be the same as RIN 13741 or RIN 5679 but do not have enough information to make this linkage.

I noticed that you have my great-grandparents David Alexander Skeen b1824 d1922 and Nancy Rasnick b1823 d1889. You only have one child listed Zilla Eddy Rasnake (real name Zelliah Addie)I'm not sure if David was her father or not but he is listed on her death cert that he is. David and Nancy had 8 more children if you would like to add the rest to your page I can send you what I have, their youngest child Charles Creed Skeen b1865 d1940 is my grandfather.
I am certain that Jonathan "Rees" Skeen is the son of Jonathan and Susannah Rees who married in 1754. But there is not any proof of Jonathan middle name being Rees. Kevin Click (he from Joseph and Juliana Rasnick Skeen line) added the name Rees to keep the Jonathan's apart and since then Rees being his middle name has spread like a wild fire. I have been trying to get others to leave out the middle name for years but that been falling on deaf ears.
Right now this Skeen line is so messed up that I dont ever think that it will be correct, there are many Skeens that we cant place that were in RCVA in the early 1800s. I can prove my line back to Jonathan aka Jonathan Rees and his second wife Sarah Monk with David's medical and death records.

I see that you have listed a Jessee Skeen in you family newsletter. He was my G-G Grandfather and was the son of Jonathan Skeen and Sarah "Sallie" Monk (Jonathan's first marriage was to Elizabeth Sargent). He was born approx. 1829 and married Elizabeth Mary Isaacs. Hope this helps someone.
