Jonathan and Sarah "Monk" Skeen?
This file submitted by Audrey Skeen Preece
The above photo was found among the photos of the grandson of Jasper Newton Skeen s/o David Alexander Skeen (s/o Jonathan Skeen & Sarah Monk) and Nancy Rasnick. The photo is believed to be that of Jonathan Skeen & Sarah Monk. Photos of David Alexander Skeen and all his children show that the photo is not of any of them. Jonathan Skeen was known to be much older than Sarah Monk. A person who deals in old clothing looked at the photo and stated that they were sure that the clothes were from the pre Civil War time period. The 1850 Russell County census has Jonathan Skeen listed asa age 85 and Sarah "Monk" Skeen listed as age 52. There is no known death dates for Jonathan or Sarah.
