Skidmore, Jeremiah

Skidmore, Jeremiah, an eminent elder in the, Presbyterian Church, was born at Rockaway, L.I., March 23, 1797. He came to New York at the age of sixteen, where for fifty-seven years he was engaged in business. He was senior member of the firm of Jeremiah Skidmore & Sons. He early became a member of the Rutgers Street Presbyterian Church, and removed with it to its present location on Madison Avenue, filling successively the office of deacon and elder. He often represented the Church in her higher judicatories, and in Church matters his judgment was highly prized. He maintained an unspotted and honorable business reputation. In social life he was regarded with the highest esteem, and in the domestic circle his Christian Virtues were still more prized because better known. His example and influence were an untold blessing to society, and his death was a great loss to the Church. He died in New York, November, 1877. (W.P.S.)
