Ann Maria Pugh was born in West Bromwich, Staffordshire, England, Jan. 30, 1842. In 1865 she was united in marriage to Benjamin Skidmore, also of West Bromwich.

In 1871 they came to Bay View, Wis. with their two sons, Benjamin and Edward and two daughters, Zillah and Lucy. Here they lived until 1879, when Mr. Skidmore, joining the pioneers, took a homestead in Holway, Taylor Co., Wis., where she has lived ever since.

Her husband, a son, Josiah, and several infants preceded her in death.

She passed away peacefully after a long illness, May 21, 1929, in certain hope of meeting many loved ones who have gone before.
