Absalom Skadden

Absalom Skadden

Male 1813 - 1886  (72 years)


  • Name Absalom Skadden 
    • it appears that Absalom shortened the name from Carskadden to just Skadden. As far as Absalom's line is concerned, the name has remained shortened to this day. The name was spelled many different ways over the years - Skadden, Skaden, Scadden, etc. I have chosen Skadden, as that is how his descendants have always spelled the name.
