catherine Beekman Skillman
sorry - error on last email -------------

there are no dates for Catherine Beekman Skillman in the DAR. The DAR applications say that Catherine Beekman Skillman is the wife of Jesse Edwards.

Do you have any information to clarify birth and death of Catherine Beekman Skillman? I believe the two wives connected to Jesse Edwards are really ONE wife and no one knows her birth and death date.

Jesse Edwards wife Catherine Beekman Skillman
I am helping someone who is from Jesse Edwards and wife Catherine Beekman Skillman, daughter Elizabeth Edwards married David Oppy. There are no dates in the DAR for the birth or death of Elizabeth Edwards who married David Oppy, yet there are 2 different Catherine Beekman connected to Jesse Edwards as his wife.

Since you are related, was wondering if you had any information as to which date of birth is accurate. Obviously this is one wife and people have them connected as Catherine Beekman and Catherine Beekman Skillman.

Catherine Beekman was married first to John SKillman and then 2nd to Jesse Edwards, from what i have gathered from DAR applications. Any help with this would be appreciated.
please email me

Are you related to the Holloways or just to Oppy family?

The tombstone looks like she was 2 mos. but hard to read. Where did you get the birthdate of 1870.

David Freeman Family
I have made some additions to David's memorial. This was information I was keeping private to test people who said they belonged to the family. Sorry for not posting it sooner. Thomas Fletcher Freeman is not my post. I am attempting to get the manager of the memorial to correct information. We will see what happens.
I apologize for not being more up-to-date; I have had health issues. My son, Logan has helped me so much. I do not know what I would do without him.
Hope you and yours are all well and happy. Thanks again for you assistance in keeping our ancestors straight.
Sunshine from Nebraska,

Elisha Kendall Oppy
I'm pretty sure Elisha was a son rather than a daughter. Even the Chicago Death Index indicates he is a male.
