Man G.B., and died May 17, 1928 in Napa, California. She married SILAS SKINNER February 24, 1870 in Kirk Andreas, Isle Of Man, son of WlLLIAM SKINNER and CATHERINE FARAGHER.
Anne Jane Callow was born and raised to young adulthood in Balla Callum, on the Isle of Man. Under the protective wing of an uncle who was a sea captain, Anne Jane immigrated to America and joined her grandparents in Ashtabula, Ohio. Under tutelage of an aunt, Anne Jane became a very proficient and widely
known seamstress and opened a very successful millinary business. She became reacquainted with Silas Skinner, whose family had been close neighbors in Andreas, IOM when he took time from his seafaring duties
to visit family and friends in Ashtabula. Family lore has it that Annie and Silas became close friends and that soon a romance developed. Silas,
however returned to his seafaring ways and the relationship was put on hold. During this time Silas had left his ship in San Francisco having heard of the discovery of gold in Idaho. He with a friend and a couple of burros to
carry their supplies walked from the Nevada gold mines to Idaho City Idaho over the winter and arrived there in the spring.
In time Annie sent word to Silas that she had other "opportunities" and that he had best decide on his priorities. Soon after that plans were made for a return trip to the Isle of Man where Silas and Annie were married in Andreas.

DEATH NOTICE OF MRS. ANNIE CALLOW SKINNER (Copied by Esther Emmel from Skinner Family Bible, July 2009)

News has just been cabled tht Mrs. Annie Skinner, of 2332 Haste Street, Berkeley, California, U.S.A., died on Thursday last, Mary 17th. The deceased lady had attained the ripe age of 81, and for some time past had been in failing health. Mrs. Skinner was a daughter of the late Capt. T. Callow of Ballacallum, Andreas, and left the Island with her grandfather in 1865, being then 18 years old; she remained in Cleveland, Ohio some six years, making many friends, of which some are still living there, and there she also met her future husband, Silas Skinner, also born in Andreas, but who had adventurously left the Island when nine(?)*Note: years old, and made his way by sailing ship to America, there to join in one of the early gold rushes to the Nevada fields.
They arranged to return to Kirk Andreas, to be married in the Parish Church in 1871, and after a short holiday they went back to the States, to Silver City, Idaho, where Mr. Skinner had mining interests.
Later they removed to Napa, Clifornia, and after Mr. Skinner’s death, his widow and her family removed to Berkeley, the University town across the bay from San Francisco
. The late mrs. Skinner was one of the best known Manx residents on the Pacific Coast, and her home was the meeting place for Manx people in the neighbourhood.

DEATH NOTICE OF CAPT THOMAS CALLOW- (Copied by Esther Emmel from Skinner Family Bible, July 2009)

(Brother of Annie CALLOW SKINNER)
We regret to record the death of Capt.Thos. Callow, one of the most esteemed
and best known residents in Ramsey and the North, which took place at Handley
Terrace, Bowring Road, on Wednesday, at the age of 70 years. Capt. Callow has not enjoyed good health for some time, but was now and then able to get out. However, some five weeks ago he was taken seriously ill, and in spite of the best medical attention, constant care, and careful nursing, he gradually became worse, and "crossed the bar," as stated, on Wednesday.
Capt. Callow was born at Ballacallum. and was a son of the late Capt. Thomas
Callow, whose death occurred some years ago. At an early age he developed a
a liking for the sea, one of his first experiences in that direction being with his
father on the well-known schooner Gem, of which he eventually became master.
Capt. Callow was not slow in proving his ability as a seaman and navigator, and,
blessed with any amount of energy and pluck, he determined to make the most
of his opportunities. Seeing this, a, syndicate of Ramsey gentlemen had built
for him at Barnstaple in 1876 the clipper schooner Snaefell, which was in her time
reckoned as the last word in coasting vessels for speed and handiness. In those
days steamers were a deal less plentiful than they are now, whilst sailing vessels
were sailing vessels in every sense of the word. Capt. Callow had as his contemporaries such capable seafarers as the late Capt. Edw. Garrett (Empress), Capt. John Clarke, Harbour Master (Wizard), Capt. D. Cleator, and others, and records for speed and quick dispatch were put up on nearly every voyage. It was no uncommon thing for these vessels then to be away from home for months at a time, whilst trips to the Baltic and other foreign parts were frequent. After a successful career and one remarkably free from accident, in the year 1886, Capt. Callow retired from the sea, and started business as a coal merchant. He purchased the three masted schooner Eclipse, and also became owner of the schooners Kitty and Trial, these vessels being fully engaged in the coal traffic. As a result of honesty and straightforward dealing, Capt. Callow built up an extensive and prosperous business, which he relinquished about two years ago, in order to spend
the remainder of his days in quietude. In his business affairs, he was greatly assisted by his wife, who survives him, and who managed his extensive coal trade with great ability.
The late Capt. Callow was a prominent Oddfellow being one of the first on the
books of the Good Anchorage Lodge. He was also a regular attender, up to the
time of his illness, at Church and Chapel, and was ever ready to assist in any good
or charitable cause. Capt Callow was of a kindly and genial disposition, was most interesting to converse with, and his demise is mourned by a large circle of friends, who join in extending their sympathy to the bereaved family.
Capt. Callow was twice married, and had issue by his first wife: Mrs Cameron,
wife of Mr John Cameron of Pooldhooie House, Bispham; and Capt. J. T. Callow,
Assistant Harbour Master at Ramsey. By his second wife, who survives him, there
is issue: William, in Manchester; Capt. James Henry, chief officer the White Star Liner Corinthic: Alfred, carpenter on board the White Star Liner Adriatic; Fred. in the Harrison Line ; Mrs Quilleash, Ramsey; and Mrs J. T. Kerruish, in Western Australia.
The interment took place to-day (Friday) at Andreas Churchyard, and was attended by a large number of persons of town and country, including rnany associated with maritime affairs.
