IN HONOR OF VETERAN'S DAY
FRED WILSON SKILLMAN




Fred Wilson Skillman is my great grandfather. He was born 27 October 1892 in Dresden, Pettis County, Missouri to Joseph Payne Skillman and Sallie D. Wilson. In 1913, Fred married Pauline Mary Sheern. They had two sons - Paul Frederick Skillman and Darrell Kenneth Skillman (my grandfather). Fred died on 27 February 1956 in Tucson, Pima County, Arizona at the age of 64.

Which national cemetery is your great grandfather bury in? It looks like it at least has some grass in it. Not like ours here in the San Joaquin Valley!

Hi Linda,

Fred Wilson Skillman is buried next to his parents in Altoona, Wilson County, Kansas. I was told he wanted to be buried with them rather than a national cemetery.
