JOSEPH SKAGGS was a good, humble man, of moderate ability, but of
devoted piety. He was licensed to preach, by Union church in Warren
county, about 1841, and was ordained a year or two afterwards. Soon
after his ordination, with the aid of George Butler and O. H. Morrow, he
gathered Harmony church in Allen county. To this congregation, and
perhaps to some others, he ministered a few years. He died of lung
disease, about 1855.
