      *****
      In August 2000 I received this absolutely fascinating e-mail which persuasively argues that Anne Mackall did not marry Andrew Taneyhill much less bear his children.

      Dear Robert;
      I recently came across your web page on the Mackall family of Calvert County, Maryland. Sad to say that the error re: the wife of Andrew Tanyhill will likely continue forever due to the same being recorded in several prominent genealogical works of many years ago.

      Ann/Anne Mackall was not the wife of the immigrant Andrew Tanyhill, my gggggg grandfather; her given name was indeed Anne but after many years of research, Ann's surname remains unknown. The confusion over Anne probably arose due to the fact that there were three Anne Skinners extant during the early 1700s in Calvert County.
      There was
      1) ANNE ( ) HOLLYDAY SKINNER, wife of Robert Skinner Sr. & mother of Clarke, Robert, Jr., Adderton, William Skinner, who died in 1714;
      2) there was Anne ( ) TANYHILL SHORT SKINNER, the widow of Andrew Tanyhill & John Short & the wife of Clarke Skinner, who died around February 1715/16; and finally there was
      3) ANNE MACKALL TANEY SKINNER [later BRUCE], the wife of Robert Skinner, Jr., (the brother of Clarke Skinner) who died 1712. The latter was the mother of Mary Taney whose will gave the names of her Skinner half siblings.

      The administration bond of Benjamin Short, administrator of Anne Tanyhill Short Skinner was dated 8 Feb. 1716; his surety was Richard Hall. An inventory of Ann's estate was taken 18 Feb. of the same year & signed by Eliz. Bowen [her daughter] as nearest of kin. It is apparent from the inventory that Anne was living with daughter Elizabeth Bowen as it listed items at the 'Whome House' as well as items 'At Nathaniel Bowens.' No account of Ann's estate has been located in the MD Prerogative Court records but in 1718, Benjamin Short was cited by the Court re: an account. Clarke Skinner, Ann's third husband died in 1714 & she was admx. of his estate; following her death in 1715/16, Benjamin Short completed the administration of Clarke Skinner's estate as well as administering Ann's estate.

      Anne Tanyhill Short Skinner many have been nee Hall & she may have been a relation of the immigrant Richard Hall of Calvert County, Maryland whose will she witnessed. In the few recorded documents re: Anne &/or her children, one of the Hall family either witnesses or is a surety.

      This error re: the wife of Andrew Tanyhill could have been avoided if early researchers had dug a bit deeper & examined all the documents relating to Anne Skinner. As it stands now, the error will probably perpetuate itself forever.

      Regards,
      Rebekah Boyd

      I have not presumed to immediately discard the overwhelming opinion of earlier researchers and change this presentation of the Mackall lineage. The input of all those interested is valuable and sought.
