Delphine:  Sorry I do not have any information on the Sconier Family.  I only visited the Historic Church and Cemetery in Clayhatchee.  The only thing I know that was published at the church :

Earliest marked gravestone in 1906 (Sconyers, Johie,b. July 27, 1898, d. Oct 10, 1906, Son of E.O & Vinessa? Sconyers). Out of the 28 names listed 26 are of the Scoyners family.
