I think it was Erban SKELCHER. That's how his name is spelled on his
gravemarker at Oakland cemetery in Carbondale. In the 1910 census record, he
is listed as Irvin. Born 31 May 1904 Carbondale Twp., Jackson, IL. Died 24
Feb 1929 Carbondale Twp., Jackson, IL. He is listed in the online Illinois
death records as Ervin SKELCHER.
The SKELCHER family was from Oxfordshire, England and came to the US circa
