My Gaskins connection began with John Gaskins.who married Sarah Fee
in Greene Co.Pa.in Feb. 1786 or 87. She was born in Frederick County,Md. 1765. Her parents and grandparents were from Maryland on both sides of her family. Before that they were from England and Scotland and Ireland.
I have read that two Gaskins brothers came to Maryland in the 1700s and they were from England.It is possible that Sara Fee married one of that family.But there were Gaskins from Va. Living in Pa. in Northumberland around the time the two were married in 1786.Sarah's family moved to Pa. in 1775, I would estimate..There was something about The Red fort in Pennsylvania that seemed to be in their reason for moving from Md. to Pennsylvania..
