    \draw[dashed] (0,0) circle [radius=32mm] circle [radius=48mm];

Is it possible to use the tikz child notation to skip a generation as shown in my example for nodes 2ndGenA (D) and 2ndGenB (E)?

Note the tree should be a radial tree which is supported by the tikzlibrary trees. Afaik, the packages forest and tikz-qtree do not support radial trees. But forest would have the tier option.
