Strictly speaking, the people on this family chart do not belong to the Skimming, McSkimming or Chisholm families that I am researching. However, I have included this chart because of the overlaps with my ancestors and because it may help other researchers to untangle the two Skimming families living in Minnigaff in the 19th century.

James Skimming, Samuel Chisholm and two Margaret Paterson's (or Patterson)

I have not been able to connect the James Skimming on this page with any of the Skimming's or McSkimming's elsewhere in my family tree.
