Daniel M. Skinner (1825-1898)

 

Daniel Moulton Skinner, son of Elijah and Abigail (Moulton) Skinner was born in Sandwich, April 14, 1825.   He married, on September 7, 1845, Sarah P.Stratton, daughter of Samuel and Lois Stratton.  Their children are Clara,  Flora, Cyrus, Daniel W., Walter, Lucien and Olive.

 

Daniel opened a tin shop shortly after he was married and continued with that business until he went into the shoe trade. But, never did he stop trying to improve upon his inventions.

 

He was blessed with the same ability as his father when it came to inventing things. He had nearly perfected a mowing machine but had to abandon it due to lack of funds. He did invent a steam clothes-washer, which was very popular. On October 23, 1883 he obtained a patent for a parcel transmitter, which later he sold for enough to make him comfortable for life
