      Comments: Hello!
      I've recently been looking into my family tree. I am the great great grandson of Ladora Snider and John Sylvester Skelton. Their daughter, Lilas, married Donald Riggs Parker, and their daughter, Margaret Parker, is my (maternal) grandmother.
      Your research is great! Thanks for helping me in learning about my roots!
