I am new at this but I am a direct descendent of Richard Alexander Skinner. According to an incomplete 1953 Pedigree chart in poseesion of my grandmother, Richard Alexander Skinner, son of Cornelius was born in 1730 in New Jersey. He married Adeline (Adah) Van Deventer in about 1762. There was a note on the chart indicating that both are burried at Aldie, VA (Loudoun County). The chart indicated that Cornelius Skinner (b. 1706) lived near Woodbridge (Middelsex County), NJ and was married in 1728. Cornelius moved to VA in about 1772. If this is the same Richard Alexander Skinner you might try Middelsex County, NJ for birth records. I will contact my great Aunt in VA ((she is a Skinner and she does geneologies) to see if she has more info.) I hope this helps.
