Surnames: Skipper, Cannon, Roberts
We are seeking more information on the family of George B. Skipper (1861-1918), son of Gabriel Skipper of Horry County. Through a family Bible, we know that George was married twice - his first wife was Anne Cannon, by whom he had only one child - Anna Maybelle Skipper (1888-1933) who married Paul Augustus Fann of Clarendon County. We have no record of the first marriage - just a mention in the Bible. His second wife was Annie Elizabeth Roberts (1871-1918)by whom he had at least nine children that we can identify: Charles Skipper (1893-1937), Harry Skipper (1896), George Herbert Skipper (1898, md. Juanita Davis), Jessie SKipper (1901), Blanche Skipper (1904), Rowena Skipper (1909-1922), Carrie Skipper (1910), Rosa Skipper (1913), and Ernestine Skipper (1915). There may have been other children. We also know George and his second wife are buried at Shiloh Church near Marion SC.
We would appreciate any information anyone has on any of the children of George B. Skipper, as well as any clues to the identity of that mysterious first wife Anne Cannon.
Thanks in advance!

I haven't seen the name of Henry Clay Skipper - but sometimes Harry is a nickname for Henry. Could the Harry Skipper (born about 1896), son of George Skipper, be your grandfather?

This family has been very hard to trace because so many of the children were orphaned.

I think I got a likely candidate for your Anne Cannon. I have an Anna M. Cannon b. ca 1858 she was from Horry County, SC the daughter of George and Rebecca Smart Cannon. This Anna M. Cannon had at least two other sisters that died young after being married and having children.... maybe something they had in common. Also this Anna M. Cannon had a brother Benjamin Walker Cannon who named a daughter Maybelle in 1891. I'm thinking that Anna M. Cannon maybe actually be Anna Maybelle Cannon and her daughter Anna Maybelle Skipper was named for her and maybe she died in childbirth?
