From The Skillmans of America and Their Kin:

First public account of him is found in deed given at sale of his farm (Dutch Kills) of 24 acres to Samuel Alburtis, Nov. 25. 1729, for £140. Thomas, his father, was witness to this deed, and Isaac is described as Cordwainer. He is mentioned third in his father's will, Feb. 23, 1739, and the following therefrom specially concerns him and his elder brother: "Whereas I have a conveyance of John Van Horne and Catharine his wife for a certain tract of land lying at Raritan, New Jersey, and my sons, John Skillman and Isaac Skillman, have paid part of the consideration money, my will and order is that if they shall pay the remaining part thereof, so as I and mine are fully discharged therefrom and acquitted thereof, that then my other sons, by name Abraham, Jacob, Benjamin, and Joseph Skillman, shall release the same unto the s'd John Skillman and Isaac Skillman." This "tract" (see Ante) on the Millstone below Rocky Hill, N. J., stretched upward toward Sourland Mountain, and contained 500 and odd acres. Isaac Skillman built his home, very much in the wilderness then, on the upper or western portion, near the present village of Harlingen. Just who Isaac's wife was we do not know. By one tradition she was "a Hull from Black River (small stream, near Peapack, N. J.) and was an Englishwoman." "The children were laughed at in Harlingen because they did not speak Dutch." There were hulls in the Black River or Peapack locality, members of the family at Piscataway. By others it is thought that Isaac's wife was a Beekman. Neither tradition is yet established. He was certainly married before leaving Long Island, circa 1726, and with Jan, his brother (John), removed to New Jersey in 1730.
