Aaron B Skinner 1850 from DJ Skinner Book 99 404 Van Buren Lot 40

Aaron (no initial) 1850 from SM Parrish Book 99 408 Van Buren Lot 28

Aaron B Skinner 1851 from EL Talmage Book 104 340 Van Buren Lot 40

Editors Note: Aaron appears in several other transactions centered mainly in the town of Van Buren, Onondaga County.

 

It would appear since the Skinner transaction listed as buyers start after 1804, it can be deduced the None of the individuals found either possessed a military grant of land for Revolutionary War service. It may have been that those sales by an Attorney, may have been on behalf of a Grant holder who never settles in Onondaga County. Since Aaron settled in Camillus/Van Buren and accumulated many parcels, that he was the land speculator/investor among those found. It is worth noting that other Skinners both in Onondaga County and Chenango Counties moved west from Massachusetts.
