Son of Robert and Winifred (Green) Scott

MOSES SCOTT (1 March 1789 - 3 May 1850)
AND WIFE, ELIZABETH SHINDLER (10 December 1790 - 19 September 1864
)
OF SCOTTSVILLE,
LAFAYETTE TOWNSHIP, FLOYD COUNTY, INDIANA

  -- INTRODUCTION --

            Wesley G. Scott (1831 - 1907) with the help of his daughters -- Hannah (Mrs. Levi H.) Scott, Libbie (Mrs. Alexander) Dean, Eunice  (Mrs. Julian T.) Miller -- were key individuals who passed along and handed down significant information regarding the generations of Scott families who had settled around Scottsville,   Floyd County, Indiana.  Wesley Scott, village blacksmith and postmaster of Scottsville, was a second generation “Hoosier” who among his relatives was the first to organize ancestral recollections.  Some believe that his daughters helped him in this effort, and during an illness late in Wesley’s life, one of his daughters wrote important memories before his death.  After his death in 1907, arrangements were made by his daughters to type, edit, and eventually distribute the memoirs to all who may be interested.  The memoirs have been included in Floyd County records at the City-County Building, New Albany, Indiana.  On December 9, 1933, they were placed in Book 12, Miscellaneous Records, #2280, pages 4 & 5.

            Through the generations, the memoirs were passed down from relative to relative, and found their way into Southern Indiana libraries.  Lennie R. Berkey, deceased, from Salem, Indiana once discovered “old” papers at the home of nephew, Billy Martin, Martinsburg, Indiana.  The old papers turned out to be “Wesley’s memoirs!”  Lennie re-copied them and sent them to the Salem, Indiana Public Library.  They were re-copied again by Helen Burgess in 1969.  Mrs. R. H. Konig, Carmel, California sent me her copy and it contained two extra sentences.  By now, one can find some variations on Wesley’s memoirs including annotations and notes attached.  The New Albany-Floyd County Public Library, Indiana Room has long made its copies available to the public.  The DAR, Piankeshaw Chapter, Genealogical Records Committee, included Wesley’s memoirs in their book, “Bible Records and Family Records, pages 163-174.”   So, whether Wesley's memoirs are in libraries or in personal records of interested Scotts and their many allied families, the memoirs can be found with one common name, Wesley G. Scott, and entitled, “The Scott Family: A Pioneer Family of Kentucky and Indiana.”

            Cuthbert L. "Bert" Scott, II, and his son, C. L. "Bert" Scott, III, had in their possession the earliest manuscript of Wesley G. Scott's memoirs.  It came directly from Wesley Scott's daughter, Hannah (Mrs. Levi H.) Scott.  Hannah and Levi Scott gave the document to their daughter, Berla Esther (Scott) Stamper, who gave it to Cuthbert Scott II.  This document obtained by Cuthbert L. Scott, II, was dated New Albany, Indiana, 12 January 1906.  In that year Hannah and Levi H. Scott resided in New Albany.

            I have not seen any other oral history documents earlier than 1906, so I have re-copied in Appendix E this earliest manuscript loaned to me by Cuthbert L. "Bert" Scott, II.  In Appendix E, I chose not to append all the other manuscripts named above but simply point out in footnote style where variations occurred among them.  Hannah and Levi H. Scott's manuscript of Wesley G. Scott's memoirs can now be compared with the other manuscripts named above.  The variations between all the manuscripts named above are in Appendix E with footnotes to point out differences among them.  None of the manuscript differences were due to modern genealogical research.  Since the documents named above were oral history folklore, observable differences have come from within oral history viewpoints.  Obviously some differences were due to re-typing, editing, rearrangements, and typewriter smudges.  But, other differences were based on oral history which came through different branches of the Scott family.  The purpose of Appendix E is to show noticeable differences among the documents named above.       

            Wesley Scott was not perfect in his recollections.  Some family members were embarrassed by his flawed and frail remembrances or they were embarrassed by his infatuation with famous, historic Scotts or embarrassed with his glorifications or ramblings about literary Scotts or religious Scotts.  Also, Wesley Scott did not pretend to be exact about dates and frustrated family researchers who have used his descriptions for historical information.  In reality, Wesley Scott's memoirs were developed a few years before his death when he was elderly and frail at the age of 75.  His memories brought him comfort in old age and he added some schmaltz to the tradition of being a Scott.  He died 25 June 1907, New Albany, Indiana, home of his daughter, Mrs. Julian T. (Eunice Scott) Miller, 312 Lafayette Street, New Albany with funeral service at Chapel Hill Christian Church, Greenville Township, Floyd County, Indiana.  The funeral was conducted by Rev. Frank T. Porter, pastor of Park Christian Church, New Albany.  So, if anyone is aware of other family lore within the Scott lineage, they may compare and evaluate their stories with those compared in Appendix E of this document.

            My research of the Scott families has been motivated by the work of Wesley G. Scott and contemporary persons who were researching their migrating ancestors on the frontier. I have tried to fill in the gaps based on research into the events and mood of the place and time.  I have tried to look into the places where they lived and tempered it with respect.  My work contains narration to accommodate the flow of ancestral history.  My resolve is that family not be lost from memory.  

            This document features Moses Scott, son of Robert Scott and Winifred Green, with information about Elizabeth Shindler, his wife, and their descendants.  The earliest references about the family lore of Moses Scott can be found in Appendix E.

          You should be aware that I have used different color codes (text color and background color) for highlighting the children and some of the grandchildren of Moses and Elizabeth (Shindler) Scott.  When giving a list of their children’s names, the color code helps organize and present that child’s lineage. 

            This document was first distributed on CD/DVDs to interested folks at the Scott Family Reunion, held at Chapel Hill Community Building, Chapel Hill Christian Church, Floyd County, Indiana, on 22 July 2006.  Microsoft Office Word 2003 was the chosen software due its large popularity.  It is hoped that interested persons can use the CD/DVD media to make additions to their family and keep their own family tree moving forward.  When errors are found in this work, they can be corrected and new information can always be inserted.

THE HISTORY OF MOSES AND ELIZABETH (SHINDLER) SCOTT’S MIGRATION

TO FLOYD COUNTY, INDIANA 

            Moses Scott and his brother, John Scott, migrated to Indiana around the summer of 1814 or earlier with their father, Robert Scott and their uncle Archelaus Scott (whose nickname was “Elaus”, misconstrued by family history as “Elijah Scott”).  Archelaus Scott’s sons, Harmon and David, came with them, too.  On their exploratory trip to the Northwest Territory, these Scotts and other friends in Shelby County, Kentucky were looking at land as they traveled over the knobs north of New Albany, Indiana, or as they traveled up the Silver Creek Valley, a stream that flowed between Clarksville and New Albany going as far north as present day Bennettsville, Clark County, Indiana and from there traveling west over the knobs along the present day St. John Road. 

            The following description gives another basic trail over the knobs from Green Valley Road, New Albany, Indiana:  “An Indian trail once led from the Falls of the Ohio across the extensive bottom east of the knobs, and up along the foot of the knobs to Bald Knob, over which it passed, thus entering the present limits of this township (Lafayette Township) at that point.  Passing down the westward slope of the knobs, the trail took a line through the woods in a south-easterly (surely the author meant westerly) direction, until it joined the main trail (Vincennes Trace - Buffalo Trail) from the Falls of the Ohio to Vincennes, somewhere probably, within the present limits of Greenville Township.  One of the first roads through the county subsequently followed this trail over Bald knob, but has since been changed.” [10]

            If they traveled up the Silver Creek Valley to Bennettsville, they then went west along the border lands between Clark and Floyd Counties as far west as Martinsburg, Indiana, where the old Bear Creek Trail and stream began near the intersection of Washington and Floyd County.  They especially explored land in southeast Washington County.  Back then, this path was in the domain of Clark and Harrison Counties and also in the newly established (January, 1814) Washington County.  Floyd County was not established until 1819.  Due to the Scotts’ federal land purchases along the Floyd and Clark boundary and the Bear Creek Trail vicinity in southeast Washington County, the Scott explorers likely traveled over The Bald Knobs Indian Trail or they traveled up the Silver Creek Valley to Bennettsville, Clark County, and went west through the upper knobs on a trail along the present-day St. John Road of Clark County.  The Upper St. John Road Trail from Bennettsville going west would have allowed them to pass through the tiny tributary streams that form Big Indian Creek and Little Indian Creek of Clark County and Bannaman Creek of Floyd County.  The lower Bald Knob Trail of Floyd County and Upper Trail from Bennettsville were as important as the Old Vincennes Trace or Buffalo Trail towards Galena and Greenville and Palmyra, Indiana.   All of these trails (Bald Knob, Upper Trail from Bennettsville, Vincennes Trace/Buffalo Trail) merged together between Martinsburg and Palmyra Indiana with the Bear Creek Trail whose tributaries orginated in Section 19, Township 1 South, Range 6 East.   Wesley G. Scott’s memoirs mentioned that the Scotts took the north track from New Albany rather than the Old Vincennes Trace track.   During this exploration trip they discovered lands which they would soon erect cabins and purchase land before their families would arrive.  They probably visited the Jeffersonville Land Office for additional information on land they had explored and then returned to Shelby County, Kentucky.     

            On October 10, 1816, Robert Scott made his only Indiana land purchase, 183.25 acres, Northwest Section 19, Township 1 South, Range 5 East. He claimed residence in Clark County, Indiana.[11]  He was in Registry Receipts Books, Receipt #10893, which indicated that he completed payments.  At the time of Robert Scott’s entry Section 19, Township 1 South, Range 5 East, and Section 24, Township 1 South, Range 4 East (adjoining sections) were officially in the domain of Harrison County, Indiana.  On 5 January 1828, the Indiana Legislature removed these sections to Floyd County, Indiana.[12]  His land was on the Bear Creek Trail where its stream flowed northwest towards Martinsburg, Indiana.  At the time Robert Scott explored and purchased this land, he may have believed that it was in Clark County because the Clark County boundary was less than ½ mile northeast of his first log cabin.    

            Archelaus Scott was the first teacher who taught in the first school house erected in 1816, Pierce Township, Washington County, Indiana.  It was built in Section 14, Township 1 North, Range 4 East, near where the Motsinger schoolhouse stood about ¼ mile northwest of Pekin, Indiana, near Shorts corner.[13]  On December 24, 1822, Archelaus Scott of Jackson Township, Washington County, Indiana, sold 80 acres, West ½ of Southwest ¼ , Section 24, Township 1 South, Range 4 East, land adjoining John Duvaco, south side, and adjoining Frederick Watty’s, (Waddy) land.  The deed said that Frederick Watty was from Fayette County, Kentucky.[14]   From 1816 (Indiana’s statehood) through 1828, Section 24 and the adjacent east Section 19, Township 1 South, Range 5 East, (Robert Scott’s land) have deeds recorded in three counties: Clark, Floyd, and Washington Counties.  But, according to the Laws of Indiana enacted for these two sections, they were supposed to be in Harrison County, Indiana.  The early deed records in Harrison County, Indiana are missing.  Clark, Floyd, and Washington County show very few deeds in these two sections from 1816-1829.[15]   These two sections contained the early known Bear Creek Trail, which later was called the Vincennes Trace route which pioneers used to move north and westward from the Ohio River Falls.  In Sections 24 and 19, the Bear Creek Trail runs atop the Wilcoxen Cave and goes west along Bear Creek, a major passage way for pioneers moving into Washington, Orange, Dubois, Davis, Pike and Knox (Vincennes, Indiana) counties.  Inhabitants in Sections 24 & 19 were recorded in the 1820 Washington County, Indiana Census.  Clark, Washington, and Floyd County settlement entries for Sections 24 and 19 are very incomplete and some entries are definitely missing between the years of 1816 - 1829. 

          Nevertheless, Archelaus Scott’s Section 24 ownership of 80 acres was a purchase he made prior to 1820 because his son, Harmon Scott was listed on this Jackson Township property in the 1820 Indiana Census of Washington County.  Archelaus Scott’s brother, Robert Scott was likewise listed in the same census living near Harmon Scott.  Robert Scott’s ownership of 183.25 acres in Section 19 makes certain a common migration of Archelaus Scott moving with his brother Robert and Archelaus’ son, Harmon, and all were living less than 1 mile apart on Bear Creek Trail.[16]  On 5 January 1828, the Indiana Legislature removed both sections from Harrison County to Floyd County, Indiana.[17]   

            Archelaus Scott also had another Washington County, Indiana property site, 320 acres, East ½, Section 27, Township 2 North, Range 4 East, located on present day Highway 60, 2 miles southeast of Salem, Indiana.  His down payment on these 320 acres began 28 December 1816 with final payment on 29 December 1817, receipt #11482.  When applying for this purchase, he said that his residence was Shelby County, Kentucky.[18]  

            When Archelaus sold his property in Jackson Township, Washington County, on December 24, 1822, it marked the time when his son, Harmon, moved from his father’s land into Lafayette Township, Floyd County, Indiana.  Harmon Scott took temporary residence on land that his cousins John and Moses Scott had obtained in northwest Lafayette Township, bordering Clark County.   Harmon Scott eventually purchased 76 acres from William McCutchan and wife, 7 September 1831, West ½ of Northwest ¼, Section 30, Township 1 South, Range 6 East,[19] which was only ½ mile east of John and Moses Scott’s land, Northeast and Northwest Quarters, Section 25, Township 1 South, Range 5 East.   John and Moses along with Harmon Scott established a village which was eventually named “Scottsville” on land owned by John and Moses Scott.[20]  It was laid out on East ½ of Northwest ¼, Section 25, Township 1 South, Range 5 East.  Scottsville was established 23 March 1853.  It was located 1/8 mile south of the boundary line for Clark and Floyd counties.  There were two streets West and Main Street.  Main Street is now called the Scottsville Road which connected northwest Lafayette Township with the town of Mooresville or present day Floyds Knobs, Indiana, on U.S. Highway 150.  

            The brothers Moses and John Scott were mutual partners in purchasing federal land in Indiana.  Their partnership was somewhat unusual but it was likely desired by their father, Robert.  While their father was alive, they made their first Indiana purchases; but, after their father’s death in 1824, they made additional purchases.  Nelson Scott received three documents of their purchases from the Bureau of Land Management (Jeffersonville, Indiana District Office documents) and they are listed chronologically. 

(1) John and Moses Scott of Floyd County, Indiana, purchased land from William Brown, Shelby County, Kentucky, who held indebtedness on an Indiana Land Certificate originally dated 16 October 1818.  John and Moses Scott removed the indebtedness by paying Mr. Brown and also paid the federal government the unpaid land costs plus interest.  The land certificate # 1325 was issued to John and Moses Scott of Floyd County, Indiana, on January 5, 1825, when William Brown was then resident of Harrison County, Indiana.  The purchase was 80 acres, West ½, Northeast ¼, Section 25, Township 1 South, Range 5 East. This land would later become the Town of Scottsville.  

(2) On the same date of January 5, 1825, John Wilson of Clark County, Indiana, sold them (acreage not given but location described 80 acres) his Floyd County land, East ½, Southeast ¼, Section 20, Township 1 South, Range 6 East, with the Bureau of Land Management holding a record of that purchase submitted by Justice of the Peace, Mr. O. Raymond of Clark County, Indiana.  Somebody goofed in writing this deed!  Section 20 was adjacent to Floyd County but actually located in present day Carr Township, Clark County, 1 ½ miles northeast of the Scotts holdings in Section 25.    

(3) Section 20 in Clark County, Indiana, was the site of a third purchase.  John and Moses Scott purchased from John M. Smith of Clark County, Indiana, his land certificate # 7412.  John M. Smith had made full credit payments from September, 1819 thru September, 1823, on 80 acres, West ½, Southwest ¼, Section 20, Township 1 South, R6E.  This was the location of John and Moses Scott’s purchased land from John M. Smith.

            These above purchases were obtained by Nelson S. Scott from the Bureau of Land Management, Jeffersonville Land Office.    

(4) Then John and Moses Scott added to their 80 acres (Section 25) Floyd County land by buying an additional 40 acres, Northeast ¼ of Northeast ¼ , Section 25, Township 1 South, Range 5 East, certificate # 11975, issued on 15 August 1838.  John Scott without his brother’s involvement also purchased 40 acres, Southeast ¼ of Northeast ¼, Section 25, Township 1 South, Range 5 East, certificate # 9544, on 2 August 1838; and another 80 acres, West ½, Northwest ¼, Section 31, T1S, R6E, on 10 October 1840.[21]  In tracing federal land purchases, Nelson Scott has noted that government land deeds held by county recorders have indicated that the owners of government land actually had possession of their land and duly noted in county records as much as 2 to 4 years before the Bureau of Land Management dated the certificates for issuing the patents.  The pioneers did not receive a patented certificate until the federal government duly processed their final payment.  So, John and Moses Scott’s partnership purchases on 14 August 1838 and John Scott’s independent purchase on 2 August 1838 and 10 October 1840 were entries actually possessed by them around 1834 - 1837!

            Eventually John and Moses Scott divided among themselves the mutually held lands in Section 25.[22]

            Moses Scott made separate land purchases in Wood Township, Clark County, Indiana, less than ¼ mile north of his land in Lafayette Township.[23]

            Moses Scott household, 1820 U.S. census, Floyd County, Indiana, page 155; National Archives micro publication M33, roll 13:  Moses Scott, 1 male of 26 under 45; 5 females under 10; 1 female of 26 under 45; neighbors were Samuel McCutchan, Jr., and Samuel McCutchan, Sr.; John Galloway; Jesse Pearson; Alexander Dunbar; George Walker, Samuel and John Jackson.

            The historic settlement of Moses and John Scott was featured in History of the Ohio Falls Cities and their Counties, Volume II, L.A. Williams & Company, Cleveland, Ohio, 1882, “Scottsville, Indiana” and has been reproduced in Appendix D of this document.

 THE RELIGIOUS AFFILIATION OF MOSES AND ELIZABETH (SHINDLER) SCOTT   

                        Moses and Elizabeth Scott were active members of the Mount Eden Church, Greenville Township, Floyd County, Indiana.  They helped name the church after their Mt. Eden community in southeast Shelby County, Kentucky.[24]  The Floyd county “Mt. Eden Church” was first named, “Mt. Eden, the Baptist Church of Jesus Christ.”  It was established January 9, 1828 by Jonathan Emmons, George Brock, and William Jackson.  From the very beginning of its establishment, Mt. Eden was affiliated with the Silver Creek Baptist Association.  Henry K. Shaw wrote that this association of Baptists was largely “Separate Baptists from North Carolina and Virginia who had lived a few years in Kentucky and had views modified by the Kentucky Revival.”[25]  The Silver Creek Association’s leading ministers from 1813 to 1837 were brothers, John Thompson Littell (1790-1848) and Absolem Littell (1788-1862), sons of Absolem Littell, a Presbyterian Elder who settled on Silver Creek, Clark County, Indiana in 1799.  The father and sons became members of the Silver Creek Baptist Church which was a key congregation in establishing the Silver Creek Baptist Association.  John and Absolem Littell were moderator and clerk, respectively, of the Silver Creek Baptist Association from 1827 to 1837 when it disbanded.  John and Absolem had read Alexander Campbell’s Christian Baptist (a periodical) and along with other pastors and laity moved the Association away from Baptist viewpoints into the direction of the Christian Church.[26]  At an Association meeting held in 1837 at the Friendship Baptist Church, Washington County, Indiana, the Silver Creek Association disbanded itself as being a Baptist entity.  In the case of Mt. Eden, no division was reported within the congregation over reforming itself into a Christian Church.  So, by 1837, Mt. Eden was a Christian Church. 

            Though the Scott settlers were not necessarily Baptists, they felt comfortable attending this church in their neighborhood with their friends.  At the time of their migration to Floyd County from Shelby County, Kentucky, their faith was going through a transition from the influence of Barton W. Stone, a Scottish Presbyterian Pastor of the Crane Ridge Kentucky Presbyterian meetinghouse, located in Bourbon County, Kentucky.  Barton Stone was expelled by the Presbyterians due to his doctrines.  Yet other Kentucky pastors held similar views of Barton W. Stone and they formed a new movement called the Christian Church or sometimes called the New Light Church.  Its members went by the name of “New Lights.” 

            The confusion among early American Presbyterians regarding theology and ministerial leadership was probably very interesting to Robert and Archelaus Scott because the Presbyterian Church was the Church of Scotland, their mother church in the old homeland and back then it was the historic church of Scott relatives and friends in Scotland and portions of Wales!   The Scotts were ethnic immigrants beholding to Scotch-Welch and/or Scotch-Irish religious leaders who were involved with the “New Light” or Christian Church movement. 

            The children of Robert and Archelaus Scott were reared in the pioneer days of Kentucky religious life.  One of the chief features of Kentucky religious life was the absence of ordained Presbyterian pastors to keep in contact with Scotland immigrants and to help take their church from region to region observing the preaching, teaching, and sacraments.  The few Scotch pastors who came to do this work were men like Thomas and Alexander Campbell, Barton W. Stone, and Walter Scott.  They came with their points of differences with the established Church of Scotland and with confusion about leadership and theology among Presbyterians in early America.  In Kentucky, they began a new movement among Scott families to reorganize the church and take it from place to place.  The Scott families bonded with these fellow Scotch reformers and accepted their reforming principles which eventually led to the formation of the Christian Church in Indiana and Kentucky and later would create the Christian Church Conference in Indiana.  Thus during the life of Moses and Elizabeth (Shindler) Scott and Moses’ brother, John and his wife, Anna Reasor, and their cousin, Harmon Scott and his wife, Margaret Reasor, the church became known as the Mt. Eden Christian Church. 

An interesting sidebar:  According to the Gospel Luminary (“old” Christian periodical dated April, 1826, page 91), Rev. John Mavity, who performed the second marriage of Robert Scott (Moses’ father) on 30 September 1812, to Abagail (Harmon) Hedden, had also migrated to Indiana by 1826.  Pastor John Mavity was named as one of the ordained ministers of the Indiana Christian Church Conference.[27]  Indiana’s first congregation of the Christian Church was organized by Rev. Clement Nance in Floyd County, Indiana, March, 1805.  Nance was a Christian Church minister with a Republican Methodist background and was generally considered to be the pioneer Christian Church pastor in Indiana.  The Kentucky Christian “New Lights” were a strong influence in establishing Mt. Eden Church.[28]           

            Upon the deaths of Moses and Elizabeth Scott and other original founders, the Mt. Eden Christian Church went through another faith transition when the core leadership of Mt. Eden decided to build a new church facility toward the end of the civil war. 

            During the Civil War years (1861-1865), a shift had been taking place throughout southern Indiana to replace hewed log edifices with clay brick buildings or framed wooden buildings.  That probably was an issue at Mt. Eden Church because other churches were being rebuilt throughout southern Indiana.  When the decision was made to build a new church, a few members of Mt. Eden did not want to leave the log church for one reason or another, so the name Mt. Eden was kept by those who stayed at the old site and the new site was called Chapel Hill Christian Church, formed and built in 1866.  The Chapel Hill Church was located one mile west of Mt. Eden on the Chapel Hill Road. Chapel Hill went up as a frame wood building due to the timber industry in the community.  Chapel Hill’s membership in 1866 was almost 100% from the Mt. Eden Church.  No records were available about the membership that remained at Mt. Eden; but, it was probably the original 14 charter members of the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and their family members.  After Chapel Hill was established in 1866, William Wallace Blair, a missionary of the Reorganized Latter Day Saints, came preaching to the Mt. Eden Church.  Blair went from region to region.  He was not a local resident.  His family resided in Amboy, Illinois.  W. W. Blair went on to become the Counselor to President Joseph Smith III of the Reorganized Latter Day Saints (RLDS).  Blair served as a member of the First Presidency of the Church for 23 years.  On 5 June 1870, W. W. Blair officially organized Mount Eden into a branch of the RLDS.  At this point in time, Mt. Eden was no longer a Christian Church.  The 14 charter members were as follows:  James G. Scott; John A. Scott; Moses R. Scott; David Scott; Gabriel Bell; Green Brown; Barbara A. Scott; Emily McCutchan; Mary Ann Scott; Indiana Bell; Elizabeth Brown; Sarah A. Goss; Indiana Scott; Louisiana Scott.[29]

            Chapel Hill Christian Church continued the very best legacies and traditions of the log cabin Mt. Eden Christian Church!  Soon a school was built at the corner of Chapel Hill Road and Navilleton Road, across from Chapel Hill Church.  The church and school helped develop a prominent community as Mt. Eden had been from 1828 to 1866.  Historically, Chapel Hill has claimed Mt. Eden as its “mother” church (obviously before Mt. Eden joined the RLDS).  The Mt. Eden branch of the RLDS was disorganized in 1907.

            In reviewing the membership records of Mt. Eden RLDS, Nelson Scott noted that John and Anna (Reasor) Scott’s descendants were most loyal to the Latter Day Saints faith.  Some of their descendants moved to Laomi, Decatur County, Iowa, a community of many RLDS members and the first location of the RLDS Herald Publishing House established by W. W. Blair.  Others moved to nearby communities in Missouri.  The descendants of Moses and Elizabeth (Shindler) Scott and Harmon and Margaret (Reasor) Scott were the ones who wanted to build a new church facility and helped establish Chapel Hill Christian Church.

            During the Mt. Eden RLDS years, the congregation became very controversial.  It had many detractors because of the claims of Joseph Smith, Jr., the Latter Day Saints founder.  He was murdered on June 27, 1844, Nauvoo, Illinois.  After his death, there was a splintering among the Latter Day Saints and W.W. Blair who organized Mt. Eden was a minister of the largest splintered group which by 1860 was known as the Reorganized Latter Day Saints.  Yet, both Latter Day Saints and the splintered Reorganized Latter Day Saints held utmost respect for their founder, Joseph Smith’s divination, his visits with angels, his claim to have found ancient writings, and revelations that led to novel doctrinal, social, and economic ideas.  Some refused to use medicine and doctors as a source of healing and some practiced polygamy.  Since some of the Scott family belonged to the RLDS branch at Mt. Eden, all other Scotts who did not belong could not escape the public scrutiny and out-cry against the Mormon (Latter Day Saints) faith.

            The Scotts were portrayed harshly and rudely in the book, History of the Ohio Falls Cities and their Counties.[30]   The copyright date of this book suggested that the author conducted interviews around 1880-81 before its publication and all interviewed had clear, sharp remembrances of what happened at Mt. Eden. There was a lot of pain and disgust among the Scotts at Chapel Hill over what their relatives had done in becoming Mormons.

            This author of the History of the Ohio Falls Cities and their Counties sketched Mt. Eden as a peculiar, untypical, weird congregation which was always in trouble due to the way some of its members practiced their faith.  But, that sketch failed to represent Mt. Eden Church before 1866 when the congregation had able leaders who served with a trusted faith and were good role models.  The faith practiced at Mt. Eden before 1866 was not unhealthy and abnormal.  Any assessment of churches in northern Floyd County and the southern high lands of Wood Township Clark County by historians would surely note that Mt. Eden was the largest Protestant congregation from 1830 to 1866.  In the years before the conversion of the few Scotts who became RLDS members, Mt. Eden was an effective congregation serving a large area of conscientious, intelligent Christian people.  

            West of the shallow banks of Thompson Creek, a soft flowing creek, stood the hewed log building of Mt. Eden situated on a plateau of prominence for a church and cemetery.   Between the creek and the church plateau was the Mt. Eden Road, named for the church.  Not many roads in pioneer days got named for a church!   But, this was no incidental road beside an unimportant church.  Mt. Eden Road was a route for commerce and travel.  There were a variety of saw-mills and grain mills in the vicinity.   The hewed log building was larger than most people have envisioned.  It was packed with people.  There was likely a large fireplace for winter heat, a large wooden pulpit, wooden pews with no backs, a wooden cross on a table, and a large wooden offering tray which may not have been passed among worshippers but placed on a stand at the church entrance for gifts to be given.  There were no hymnals but if people had a Bible, they brought it with them in case they would sing one of the Psalms.  Otherwise, a song leader sang words and the people echoed the song leader’s voice.  Favorite songs were sung when memorized and sometimes played on string instruments as fiddles, guitars, banjos and ukulele.  The men sat on one side of the sanctuary and the women and children on the other side.  Lots of people could not read yet.  But, reading was not a requirement for being a Christian.  Mt. Eden baptized many believers at nearby creeks where the best requirements for being a confessing Christian was to “see” with your heart and imitate others whom you “saw” living the faith well.  When this church celebrated Holy Communion, the blood of the Lord Jesus was passed in a common wine cup and the bread was broken individually from a common loaf!  Children, orphans, and adult widows along with prosperous and poor families practiced a unifying faith from 1828 through 1866!            

ELIZABETH SHINDLER, MOSES SCOTT’S WIFE 

The father and grandfather of Elizabeth Shindler have been researched by Mrs. Clay W. York (Ethel Fay).  Her research has been placed in Appendix F of this document.  Ethel Fay York and Nelson Scott discovered several sources in Shelby County, Kentucky regarding the marriage of Moses and Elizabeth Shindler.  Following their marriage, they resided with George Shindler, Elizabeth’s father, per the 1810 Census as entered below.  Their first two children -- America and Malinda -- were born in Kentucky.   

Federal Census RecordsGeorge Chindler household, 1810 U.S. census, Shelby County, Kentucky, page 204; National Archives micro publication M252; Roll 8:  George Chindler, 2 males of 10 under 16; 1 male of 16 under 26; 1 male 45 +; 1 female under 10; 1 female of 10 under 16; 3 females of 16 under 26; and 2 other free persons were in this family, ages not given, probably slaves who were free.  No slaves were reported other than possibly the two free persons.  George’s wife was deceased because the oldest females were 16-26 years of age.  This census has indicated that his newly wed daughter, Elizabeth, and son-in-law, Moses Scott, were living in George’s home.  Since this census occurred following their 23 May 1810 marriage, the categories for Moses’ age of 21, and Elizabeth’s age of 19 correlated well with her father’s home dwellers.     

 Federal Census RecordsMoses Scott household, 1820 U.S. census, Floyd County, Indiana, Greenville Township, page 155 but also stamped page 147; National Archives micro publication M33; Roll 13:  Moses Scott, 1 male of 26 under 45; 1 female of 26 under 45; 5 females, under 10. (Census correlated perfectly with his five daughters born before 1820.) The Shelby County, Kentucky Tax Records listed Moses Scott next to his father, Robert Scott from 1812 to 1814.  Moses Scott was not found in the 1820 Shelby County, Kentucky Census. 1830 U.S. census, Floyd County, Indiana, No Township Listed, page 357; National Archives micropublication M19; Roll 28:  Moses Scott, 1 male under 5; 1 male of 5 under 10, 1 male of 40 under 50; 3 females of 5 under 10; 2 females of 10 under 15; 1 female of 40 under 50. 1840 U.S. census, Floyd County, Indiana, Lafayette Township, page 150, handwritten page 291; National Archives micropublication M704; Roll 79:  Moses Scott, 1 male of 5 under 10; 2 males of 15 under 20; 1 male of 50 under 60; 1 female under 5; 1 female of 10 under 15; 3 females of 20 under 30; 1 female of 40 under 50. 1850 U.S. census, Floyd County, Indiana, population schedule, Lafayette township, 7 September 1860, no post office listed, stamped pages 369 and 370, dwelling 146, family 144; National Archives micropublication M432, roll 145:  Elizabeth Scott, age 60, born Virginia; Elizabeth Scott, age 21, born Indiana; Moses Scott, age 18, farmer, born Indiana, attends school; Mary Scott, age 14, born Indiana, attends school. 1860 U.S. census, Floyd County, Indiana, population schedule, Lafayette township, 3 July 1860, Floyds Knobs Post Office, pages 263 and 264, dwelling 645, family 631; National Archives micropublication M653, roll 257:  Moses Scott, age 28, born Indiana; America Scott, age 24, born Indiana; Robert Scott, age 11 months, born Indiana; Elizabeth Scott, age 69, born Virginia; Mary Scott, age 24, born Indiana. (This was Moses Scott, Jr., youngest son of deceased Moses Scott.  Elizabeth Scott was the mother of Moses Scott, Jr., and Mary Scott was his sister.)       

           After the death of Moses Scott, 3 May 1850, his children and wife inherited all of his property.  Moses Scott died without a Will, so everyone in the family cooperated to comply with an equitable settlement.  Records in the Floyd County Courthouse were not specific about Moses Scott’s estate or arrangements made by his family.  All surviving children and the spouses of deceased children sold 40 acres, 15 January 1851, North ½, South ½, Northeast ¼, Section 25, Township 1 South, Range 5 East, to Moses Scott, Jr., the youngest son[31].  This property was the home place for Moses and Elizabeth Scott.  Elizabeth resided with her son, Moses Scott, Jr., until her death, 19 September 1864, Scottsville, Floyd County, Indiana.  Moses & Elizabeth’s home was built near the home of Moses’ brother, John Scott, in the Scottsville community according to the census records.  In the 1860s, the home was next to Alexander McCutchan’s family, the John Scott family, and the Vardeman Scott family. 

           Other property that Moses and Elizabeth Scott sold to their children prior to their deaths is noted below.

           Ten children were born to Moses and Elizabeth (Shindler) Scott:

            William and America (Scott) McCutchan resided on 80 acres, East ½, Section 30, Township 1 South, Range 6 East, Lafayette Township, Floyd County, Indiana.[34]  According to family oral history from Clark Scott, William and America McCutchan’s home burned.  They were in great need at one time.

            William McCutchan’s brother, Samuel McCutchan, Jr., married Malinda Scott, the sister of William’s wife, America Scott.  The McCutchan brothers, William and Samuel, Jr., married Scott sisters, America and Malinda.

            The father of William and Samuel McCutchan, Jr., was Samuel S. McCutchan, Sr.[35]  He may have been, but nothing is definite, the youngest brother of James McCutchan, Sr., and William McCutchan, the earliest known McCutchans who settled in Floyd County, Indiana.  Samuel S. McCutchan, Sr., probably had a sister who resided with him and his wife, Frances.  That sister was also named, Frances McCutchan, and she never married.

Scott, age 16, born Kentucky, and Fanny McCutchan‚ age 69, born Virginia).  In the 1850 census, Samuel and Malinda were living with Samuel McCutchan, Sr., and his wife, Frances.  Samuel McCutchan‚ Sr. was age 78 and wife Frances was age 78, too!   Both were born in Virginia.  Their marriage date of October 9, 1804, Augusta County, Virginia, was documented in “First Marriage Records of Augusta County Virginia, 1785-1803.”  It is assumed that they were buried in Mt. Eden Cemetery though no grave markers have been found.  Fanny McCutchan‚ age 69, born Virginia, was the sister of Samuel McCutchan, Sr.  She was also listed in the 1840 Census with them.

Historical Background on the McCutchans [36]

            “The McCutchans first settled on the Wabash River very early in the present or possibly at the close of the last century, but subsequently moved to this county (Floyd) and purchased land on Big Indian Creek a little in advance of other settlers of that time.  The family was originally from Ireland, but settled in Virginia and subsequently in Tennessee before removing to Indiana.  A deed now in possession of Samuel McCutchan shows that the family were residents of Augusta county, Virginia, it being given by Governor Brooke, of that State, and dated October 1, 1782.  Part of the family moved to Tennessee, where they remained but a short time.  James moved from Virginia with his family directly to the Wabash country, where he lived a short time and was engaged in the Indian war of that period, being in the battle of Tippecanoe.  Having had six horses stolen from him by the Indians, and being otherwise harassed by the savages, his family and himself being in continual danger of massacre, he left that country and determined to return to Virginia; but reaching his brother William, who had settled meanwhile in this county (Floyd), he remained with him and subsequently purchased land and became a permanent resident.  He taught school for years and was probably the first teacher on Indian creek within the limits of this township (Lafayette Township, Floyd County, Indiana).”

            In the 1820 Floyd County, Indiana Census, Samuel S. McCutchan, Sr., was residing near his brother, James McCutchan whose census name was followed with the initials “S” or “J”. 1820 U.S. census, Floyd County, Indiana, Greenville Township, page 155 but also stamped page 147; National Archives micropublication M33; Roll 13:  James McCutchan, “S” or “J”, 1 male of 26 under 45 and 1 female of 26 under 45, no children; however, he had a son named “Samuel McCutchan” who resided next to James’ brother, Samuel S. McCutchan, Sr., and adjacent to Moses Scott.  Also, William McCutchan, brother of James and Samuel S. McCutchan, Sr., resided nearby.  1820 U.S. census, Floyd County, Indiana, Greenville Township, page 153 but also stamped page 145; National Archives micropublication M33; Roll 13:  William McLuhtain (miss-spelling for McCutchan), 4 males of 10 under 15; 1 male of 16 under 25; 1 male of 45 or above; 1 female of 16 under 25; 1 female of 26 under 45.

Elizabeth (Collins) McCutchan was the sister of John F. Collins.  He married Nellie L. Watkins.  John and Nellie (Watkins) Collins had no children in their marriage.  After John Collins died, his wife, upon instructions from her husband, John, included John’s nieces and nephews in her Will. That Will named the children of Samuel and Elizabeth McCutchan as heirs and as the nieces and nephews of Nellie Collin’s deceased husband, they were named as follows:  William F. McCutchan; Mary L. (McCutchan) Michels; Anna (McCutchan) Owen; George L. McCutchan; Tena (McCutchan) Rufing; Etta (McCutchan) Michels; Charles J. McCutchan; J. Clarence McCutchan.  Their parents were Elizabeth Collins and Samuel J. McCutchan.   (Were Elizabeth McCutchan, born about 1870, as claimed above; and Francis McCutchan (male son) born about 1874 as claimed above; and Edward McCutchan born about 1877 as claimed above in Census; why were these not named in the Will of Nellie L. Watkins?).  Tena, Etta, Charles J., and J. Clarence McCutchan were born between the years of the 1880 and 1900 censuses.  Those in blue format were confirmed by the census records above.   

            One son of Samuel J. and Elizabeth (Collins) McCutchan was James Clarence McCutchan, born 15 December 1883, Floyd County, married 25 September 1904, Floyd County, Lealah Maude Wade, born 12 March 1887, Floyd County, Indiana. James Clarence went by the name of Clarence McCutchan.  He and Lealah were the parents of twelve children born on their farm east of the Chapel Hill Christian Church.  James Clarence McCutchan told his daughter, Beulah Mildred “Midge” (McCutchan) Hoke, that his parents early in their marriage lived on a farm near Atkins Chapel before they bought the farm east and adjacent to Chapel Hill Christian Church.  This recollection of family folk lore correlated well with the location of the farm owned by Samuel J.’s father, William S. McCutchan.  Samuel J. McCutchan’s farm next to Chapel Hill Christian Church had been previously owned by Henry Todd.    

The following were children of James Clarence and Lealah Maude (Wade) McCutchan:[39] 

1 Haven Clarence McCutchan, born 6 April 1905, married (1) Georgia Nicholson‚ and following her death, married (2) Velma Kirkham.

9 Beulah Mildred “Midge” McCutchan, born 18 May 1919, married John P. Hoke. Midge McCutchan and Virginia Scott were close childhood friends in the Chapel Hill Community.  Their parents were neighbors.   They remained lifelong friends even though Midge and John Hoke moved from the Borden community, resided in Florida and in a suburbs south of Birmingham, Alabama.  After Midge’s husband, John Hoke, died early in 2002, Midge visited with Virginia Scott at Galena, Indiana in April, 2002, and they were like two young kids reminiscing the wonderful years of their marriages, friends, and families.  In 2002, Midge and Virginia were the same age of 83. 

10 Irvin Howard McCutchan, born 6 December 1920, married Fern Confer.  Irvin resided before his death in Monticello, Indiana.  He once owned a very nice home on historic Shaefer Lake. He had three sons, one of whom was named Alan McCutchan who was a genius type person that traveled Europe on a bicycle and worked as a teacher in Greece where he was stranded during the winter months.  He also was in New York City in September, 2001, heard the first plane that was controlled by terrorists crash into the World Trade Center, went to the top of the building of his employment where there was a lounge for employees and saw the second plane of the terrorists fly overhead and also crash into the World Trade Center.  Alan reported to his father that it made his hair stand up on his head.  Alan’s genius allowed him to work with computers or whatever he could do to save enough money so he could bicycle leisurely on long trips.  One bicycle trip began in Seattle Washington where he bicycled through California and around the southern states and into Florida.   He always sent money to his father to deposit in the bank and never withdrew it.  Alan was also in Moscow bicycling and was picked up by the police and forced to leave Russia.  Alan especially loved Scotland and Wales.  He believed that the McCutchan Family had roots in Wales and according to his aunt Midge Hoke, desired to return to Wales and write a book on the McCutchan Welsh ancestry.

11 Noel Clifton McCutchan, born 6 August 1924, married Ida Mae Grant.

12 Alvin Lee McCutchan, born 30 November 1930, married Kathleen Bowling.

Cecil died before John, and they both died from strokes.  Paul Coffman, their son, told this story.  When they were young and dated they would double date and trade partners without the knowledge of the girls.  Uncle Cecil told this story about John. John, when he was courting Grace, would ask to drive Grace home from church, but her mother, Lillie, would always insist on coming along.  One Sunday, on the way home, in the buggy, and at the top of a steep hill called the McCutchan Hill, John let the horse run as fast as it wanted to do down the hill.  It turned out to be a fast and scary ride as Lillie informed him that she would never ride with him again.  Just what he wanted!  Grace and John bought the home place from Lillie after Elias Jefferson Bell died and John and Grace lived there the rest of their life.  During the depression, John worked at other jobs besides farming.  He often talked about helping to build Highway 60 and how he and his team of horses made $2.00 a day.  Sometimes he worked on township roads, with his team of horses, hauling creek gravel and made $1.50 each day.  Later he worked for the Indiana Arsenal at Charlestown, Indiana.  He could remember when the first airplanes came to be; he took a good look and went back to work.  He had a keen knowledge and was able to adjust to the period in which he lived.  He was very good in mathematics and could add faster in his head than most people could with a calculator.

John retired from the Indiana Highway Sign Department and from farming. 

John and Grace Coffman were always very kind and open people.  While growing up at Chapel Hill Church, they were highly admired by Nelson Scott.  One quality especially noticed was their interest in kids and they would answer questions which growing kids had about everything at church or elsewhere in life. 

Grace Edna Bell’s parents once owned the Borden Hotel during Grace’s childhood years.  When she was 15 or 16 years old, her parents returned back to the farm and Grace helped her family with farm work.  She loved tending to her flowers, plants, and garden.  During the depression, and later, she worked side-by-side with her husband, John, growing vegetable crops and strawberries which they marketed for cash money.  They had dairy cattle, hogs and chickens, all this to be taken care of every day.  During World War I, Grace and her mother and other neighbor women sewed shirts and caps for the army.  She would collect them and deliver them by horse and buggy to New Albany, Indiana.

Grace had a lovely alto voice and sang in the church choir.  During the young and mid years of her life, you could find a lavish meal at their home most every Sunday.  She was a very fine cook.  Crowds of relatives and friends would be round the table and stayed the afternoon to play cards and visit.  Those were great memories of John and Grace Coffman’s family times.  They loved their children and grandchildren and Chapel Hill Church where John was a Deacon.  Grace was very active in the women’s fellowship group and sang devotedly in the choir.  They were outstanding church members in supporting everything at Chapel Hill.

Big Indian Creek also flowed through their property on the southwest corner.[44] Their son, Samuel S. McCutchan who married Clarinda Scott, also resided on this farm.  Nothing is definite because there were several Samuel McCutchans who were contemporaries of each other; but, they may have also owned 40 acres, Northeast ¼, Northwest ¼, Section 30, Township 1 South, R6E[45] and additionally purchased on 2 August 1838, 40 acres, Southwest ¼, Southwest ¼, Section 31, Township 1 South, Range 6 East.[46]

McCutchan was born about 1843 and according to folklore went to California with a wagon train.  George may have died before reaching California, Oregon, or Washington because he was not found in the 1870 or 1900 federal census records for those states and other western states.

CHILDREN OF MOSES AND ELIZABETH (SHINDLER) SCOTT

CATHERINE SCOTT and husband Uriah Bell

            Catherine Scott was born 15 October 1816, Lafayette Township, Scottsville, Floyd County, Indiana, (at birth her parent’s home in 1816 was actually the domain of Clark County, Indiana), baptized Mt. Eden Christian Church, Greenville Township, Floyd County, Indiana, died 29 April 1850, burial Pleasant Ridge Cemetery, Wood Township, Clark County, Indiana, married by Rev. David Baggerly, 28 October 1841,[69] Lafayette Township, Floyd County, Indiana, Uriah Bell, born 31 December 1817 or 1 January 1818, probably born Wood Township, Clark County, Indiana, died 31 March 1893, at 75 years, 3 months, Elmwood Place, Hamilton County, Ohio, near Cincinnati, burial Spring Grove Cemetery, near Cincinnati. 

            Uriah Bell’s parents were Gabriel Bell and Mary Akers whose nickname was “Polly.”  Uriah and Catherine (Scott) Bell named their first born son, Gabriel, after Uriah’s father, and their second born son was named, Moses, after Catherine’s father.

            The information about Catherine Scott and Uriah Bell’s family was compiled by Paul E. and Patricia A. Coffman in their book, The Bells of Pleasant Ridge, CC Productions, 2000, 10710 Coffman Road, Borden, Indiana.  Some of the information in their book was shared with Nelson S. Scott before the book was published.  Also, information about Catherine and Uriah Bell’s family was researched by Ethel Faye York and shared in correspondences with Nelson Scott.  One misprint on page 463 (The Bells of Pleasant Ridge) needs to be clarified.  Catherine Scott was erroneously named as the daughter of Moses and America (Kelly) Scott.  Moses was Catherine’s young brother (not her father).  Their parents were Moses and Elizabeth (Shindler) Scott. 

            Catherine (Scott) Bell’s tombstone at Pleasant Ridge Cemetery indicated that she died in 1851.  The Indiana 1850 Mortality Schedule, Volume 1,[70] indicated that she died April, 1850, age 33, widow, born in Indiana, death due to cholera, ill 6 - 12 days.  The mortality schedule’s age of 33 correlated well with the birth date of Catherine (Scott) Bell from the tombstone; but, the mortality schedule errors in calling her “widowed.”  At the time of Catherine’s death, Uriah was living.  Paul & Pat Coffman researched Uriah Bell’s pension application, National Archives, and in that document Uriah recalled that Catherine died around 1848.  In the 1850 Federal Census, Floyd County, Lafayette Township, Catharine does not appear with her husband and children, so the census would agree with the death date in the Indiana 1850 Mortality Schedule.

            The Mortality Schedule reported that she was born in Indiana not Kentucky!  This was a strong clue that Catherine’s mother, Elizabeth (Shindler) Scott, had arrived before October, 1816 from Shelby County Kentucky.  Obviously Moses Scott had been here earlier building the cabin and clearing the land.  Catherine was their first child born in Indiana!

            On 13 October 1851, Uriah Bell of Floyd County, Indiana, purchased from Samuel and Malinda (Scott) McCutcheon of Floyd County, Indiana, ($200), 40 acres, Northeast ¼, Southeast ¼ Section 25, Township 1 South, Range 5 East.[71] This land once belonged to the deceased Moses Scott, Malinda’s father, at Scottsville, Indiana.  One month following the land purchase, Uriah remarried having been a widower (single parent with 4 small children) for about 1 ½ years.  Uriah Bell then sold this same property 22 March 1852 to John Wilson of Floyd County, Indiana.[72]  Uriah remarried 13 November 1851, Floyd County, Indiana, Sarah Ann Smith.[73]    

            Federal Census Records: Uriah Bell household, 1850 U.S. census, Floyd County, Indiana, population schedule, Lafayette Township, Floyds Knobs Post Office, page 367, dwelling 114, family 114, census taken on 4 September, National Archives micropublication M432, roll 145:  Uriah Bell, age 32, farmer, born Indiana; Gabriel Bell, age 8, born Indiana; Moses Bell, age 6, born Indiana; Elias Bell, age 3, born Indiana; George Bell, age 4 months, born Indiana.  We also find Uriah in the 1850 census[74] as a resident of the family of Catherine’s brother, George S. Scott and wife, Mary, where Uriah worked temporarily on their farm.  Also, the 1850 census[75] recorded two of Uriah’s children, Gabriel and Moses, residing with the family of Uriah’s brother, John Bell and wife, Louisa.  When Catharine Scott died as a young mother of 4 small children, the Bells and Scotts rallied to help rear them.

            Indiana Scott was born as a twin to her sister, Louisiana, on 11 August 1819, Lafayette Township, Scottsville, Floyd County, Indiana, baptized Mt. Eden Church, Greenville Township, Floyd County, Indiana, death date not available, died Wood Township, Clark County, Indiana, burial place not available, married[77] by A. S. Kellogg, 5 December 1844, Lafayette Township, Floyd County, Indiana, Milo B. Stacy, born about 1820, Wood Township, Clark County, Indiana, died about 1861, Wood Township, burial place not available.

            Milo B. Stacy was the son of William Stacy (1783-1849) and Elizabeth (surname not known).  There were several Stacy families in Washington & Clark County, Indiana according to the census records of 1820, 1830, 1840, and 1850.  In the 1850 Census, a William W. Stacy‚ born 1823, age 27, was residing in the home of Indiana’s sister, America (Scott) McCutchan and her husband, William.  William W. Stacy was likely a close relative to Milo B. Stacy. 

            Indiana and Milo were living in Des Moines County, Iowa per the 1850 census.  They resided in the same township where Indiana’s twin sister, Louisiana lived with her husband, Jeremiah Packwood.  They moved to Iowa about 1848 and returned about 1852 to reside at New Albany, Indiana per the 1860 census.  Milo’s trade in New Albany was a wagoner and they resided on 5th Street between Market and Spring Streets.[78]

Scott and Mary Hey was obtained from Ethel Fay (Clark) York when she resided in Sellersburg, Indiana in several correspondences with Nelson Scott.  Likewise, Elsie Mae McKown, Greenville, Indiana researched this family and shared information with Nelson in her correspondences.  Elsie May McKown’s husband, Vernon, was a descendant of Anne Eliza Scott.  Elsie May McKown was Nelson Scott’s third and fourth grade teacher at the old Galena, Indiana Elementary School on Featheringill Road. 

            Mary Hey was placed under the guardianship of Thomas H. Collins upon the death of her parents.  Thomas H. Collins was her guardian when she married, so it took legal action to dismiss or transfer Thomas H. Collins’ guardianship to George Scott because Mary Hey was not 21 years of age when married.  On 11 November 1844, the court ordered George to sell 80 acres of her inheritance and appointed persons to appraise the East Half of Northeast Quarter of Section 18, Township 2 South, Range 6 East.[81] Part of that property that Mary (Hey) Scott was advised to sell is where the present day Floyd Knobs Community Club is located.

            George & Mary Scott sold 100 acres from Illinois Grant Survey #243 to Thomas Davis on 31 October 1849.  The land was near John Thurston’s Survey #244, John Holkers Survey #158, and Samuel Watkins 100 acres Survey.[82]  Also, George Scott owned 20 acres, East ½, Southwest ¼, Section 30, Township 1 South, Range 6 East, property previously owned by his father, Moses Scott.[83]  But, his major farm was located Northwest Quarter, Section 6, Township 2 South, Range 6 East, 160 acres with Scottsville Road, Bethel Road, and Starlight Road running through his property.  A saw mill was located on this land near the intersection of the Starlight and Scottsville Roads.[84]  Parts of this land were inherited by George’s son, George Aaron Scott.

            Clark Craven Scott has remembered the day that his grandmother, Mary (Hey) Scott died.  Her death occurred when Clark was 9 years old and it made a deep impression on him.  She died at the home of his parents, George and Anna Scott’s farm house on a Sunday afternoon at 3 o’clock.  Clark said that the house was full of people, namely his aunts and uncles on the side of his father, George.

            When Mary had become a widow in 1888, Clark said that she lived in the home of her son, Robert Kay Scott who lived about 1/3 mile east of his parent’s home.  When Robert Kay Scott was born, Mary was 47 years old.  Clark and his sister, Florence, recalled that Robert Kay’s childhood was more like a grandson to his aging mother than a son.  They felt that he was unduly loved, mothered, and pampered even as a teenager.  When Robert Kay married, his mother still directed his home!  His mother could never break the apron strings from Robert.  As Mary weakened in health and death approached, Clark remembered that she moved to the home of his parents, George Aaron and Anna Sarah Scott’s family.  This was the place that Mary died.

            William L. Scott, nicknamed Will, was born 2 July 1868, Lafayette Township, Floyd County, Indiana, baptized Chapel Hill Christian Church, Greenville Township, Floyd County, Indiana, died 1946 at his residence, 2305 Lincoln Drive, Jeffersonville, Indiana, burial Hillcrest Cemetery, Floyds Knobs, Indiana, married 10 November 1889, Mooresville, Indiana, (presently known as Floyds Knobs), Harriet R. Moore, nicknamed “Nettie”, born January, 1870, Mooresville, Indiana, died 1 December 1947, Jeffersonville, Indiana, burial Hillcrest Cemetery, Floyds Knobs, Indiana. [110] 

            Harriet R. Moore’s parents were Isaac and Martha J. (Belveal) Moore whose burials were in Hillcrest Cemetery, Floyds Knobs, Indiana.  This cemetery was sometimes called the “Floyds Knobs Cemetery” located adjacent to and on acreage behind the Floyds Knobs Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Paoli Pike Road, which is actually State Highway 150.  Their burial plots were adjacent to Harriet and Wm. L. Scott’s family plots which included burials and monuments for some of William and Harriet Scott’s children.   It has occurred to Nelson S. Scott that Harriet upon the early deaths of children in her marriage requested burial sites located near cemetery lots already owned by her parents before her parents had died.   Her parents owned a large burial lot or (grave sites) and gave Harriet some plots for her use.

            William and Harriet named one of their sons, Isaac, after Harriet’s father.

            Isaac Moore was the son of Gabe Moore, an early settler in the Floyds Knobs community which was first named after Gabe Moore’s family, “Mooresville” and then later became Floyds Knobs, Indiana.  Isaac and Martha J. Moore’s monument was read by Nelson Scott, January, 2004.  Their monuments were read as follows: Isaac Moore, born April 10, 1828, died September 29, 1902; Martha J. Moore, wife, born February 10, 1834, died March 14, 1905.

            Isaac and Martha (Belveal) Moore had a son, David B. Moore, born 1872, Mooresville, Floyds Knobs, Indiana, died 1963, Denver, Colorado.  David B. Moore married Charlotte Scott, nicknamed “Lottie”, the daughter of Jeremiah and Dorcas (Wilson) Scott, who resided about 1 mile south of Scottsville on the Scottsville Road, Floyd County, Indiana.   David and Charlotte (Scott) Moore moved to Denver, Colorado and reared their family.  One of their sons, O. Otto Moore, was a member of the Supreme Court of Colorado for more than seventeen years. [111]

            William and Harriett bought some land with a grocery store constructed on it in the early 1890s.  The land and store was once owned by Gideon Atkins on Indian Creek.  By February of 1894, William and Harriett had torn down the old store and built a new store for their General Merchandise business.[112]

            Around 1980, Nelson Scott visited with Mary E. (Scott) Atkins who resided at the Westminster Village Retirement Center, Clarksville, Indiana.  Nelson also visited with her sister, Velva L. (Scott) Devine, who resided in Trinity Towers, Apartment 15‚ 537 South 3rd, Louisville, Kentucky.  They gave him the following account: Will Scott sold inherited farm land to his brother George Aaron Scott.  Before Will Scott had married, he established a grocery store, 318 State Street, New Albany, Indiana.  After his marriage, he operated the grocery store from about 1886 - 1915 with the help of his family.  Around 1915, he changed his business into a retail and wholesale feed and seed store -- a business which served agricultural seeds for farmers to grow corn, soybeans, wheat, alfalfa and also garden vegetables.  The business also sold flour and dairy cattle feed.   His sons, Isaac “Ike” G. Scott and Joseph Hey Scott, worked in the business.  In 1919 the business relocated to 329-331 State Street, New Albany.

            Around 1921 a new partner, Raymond C. Emery, was brought into the business for a few years.  The business was called, “Emery-Scott Seed Company” from 1921-1924.  Raymond C. Emery was Vice-President; William L. Scott, President; and Charles M. Scott was the Secretary-Treasurer.  Charles M. Scott in 1920 left the L. Thorn & Sons business in New Albany and went to work for his uncle, Will, and was quickly appointed the secretary-treasurer of the company.  By 1925, Raymond C. Emery left the business.

            In 1929, William L. Scott left the Scott Seed Company and temporarily formed a similar business, “W. L. Scott & Sons,” 320 West Main, New Albany, Indiana, selling flour and feed.  His sons, Isaac and Joseph Hey Scott, continued to work for their father.  Also, his daughter, Mary E. Scott, was the bookkeeper.[113]

            The Scott Seed Company which William L. Scott formed passed into the ownership of Charles M. Scott and Edmund K. Scott.  In 1929, Charles M. Scott was President of the Scott Seed Company and Edmund was secretary.   In 1930, the Scott Seed Company relocated to 108-110 West Main Street, New Albany where it remained until 1942 when the business relocated to 709-733 East 4th Street, New Albany.  

            In 1932, W. L. Scott & Sons moved their business away from New Albany to 1518-1520 Spring Street, Jeffersonville, Indiana.  William L. Scott was President of the New Albany Scott Seed Company until he left the business in 1929.   The reasons for the separation of Will Scott from his nephews -- Edmund and Charles M. Scott -- is not known but it is presumed by Nelson Scott’s folklore from various family members that the separation was a financial advantage to all concerned especially with Will Scott’s interest to give his own children an opportunity to be more involved in a business.

            Will and Harriet R. (Moore) Scott resided in Midway, Indiana from about 1910 to at least 1945 at 2305 Lincoln Drive, (east side) north of Jefferson Avenue and south of Adams Avenue which at that time was located in the City of Jeffersonville.[114]  Their son, Isaac G. Scott and wife, Ada, resided nearby at 2209 Lincoln Drive, between Lincoln Avenue and Jefferson Avenue.  The “Midway” community took its name because it was midway between New Albany and Jeffersonville, Indiana. “Midway” was actually north of State Road 62 which today is in the city of Clarksville, Indiana, west of Green Tree Mall Shopping Center and east of Providence High School, Clarksville, Indiana.  In 2003, a new redevelopment project for businesses was established and took the name, “Midway.”   All residences in this area have practically disappeared and the neighborhood is now largely the Midway Commercial Development, apartment complexes, a medical center, and the Green Tree Mall Shopping Center.

            Will and Harriet Scott’s married children also resided at one time at Midway which was close to their business in Jeffersonville. 

            Velva L. (Scott) Devine had a tin-type picture of George S. & Mary (Hey) Scott, and the picture included her father, William L. Scott and her uncle, Robert Kay Scott and her aunt, Penelope (Scott) Loweth.   Velva loaned the picture to Nelson Scott so he could photocopy it for family history.

            Nine children were born to William and Harriet R. (Moore) Scott:

            1.  Velva L. Scott was born 24 February 1891, New Albany, Floyd County, Indiana, died 13 October 1987 when as a widow she resided in Trinity Towers, Apartment 15‚ 537 South 3rd, Louisville, Kentucky, buried Hillcrest Cemetery, Floyds Knobs, Indiana, married (date and place of marriage not available), Jack J.

            Robert K. Scott was born 12 June 1873, Lafayette Township, Floyd County, Indiana, baptized Chapel Hill Christian Church, Greenville Township, Floyd County, Indiana, died 20 June 1952, New Albany, Indiana at the home of his son, Fred B.

            Jennetta Wade’s parents were Henry and Mary (Burkhart) Wade.  

            Mary Ellen (Scott) Atkins said that Robert K. Scott was born when his mother, Mary, was 47 years old and she lived long enough to see him married.   Mary Ellen (Scott) Atkins recalled the following children: Fred B. Scott, married a girl whose given name was possibly “Jessie” and who possibly was from Eckerty, Indiana.   Mary Ellen Atkins also said that Robert and Jennie Scott had a daughter, Lillian, who married Earl Drescher and resided in Floyds Knobs, Indiana.  Lillian and Earl Drescher resided on Vincennes Street and Shelby Street in New Albany.  Lillian died in an automobile accident.  Lillian (Scott) Drescher was a friend of Bertha E. (Scott) Johnson as well as a second cousin.

Robert K. Scott’s home was on Bethel Road located on the south side of Big Indian Creek.  He never built a bridge over the creek to his home from Bethel Road. He always crossed the creek with his horse drawn buggies or motor vehicles.  In the year of 2004, the address of this home was 4492 Bethel Road, Floyds Knobs, Indiana.  This home or the home of his brother, George Aaron Scott, was the original home site of their parents.  We are not sure where George S. and Mary (Hey) Scott resided.  They probably built homes on both sites and probably reared their children at both sites.

William J. Miller owned land and resided in Crawford County, Indiana, Section 22, Township 2 South, Range 1 East, about 3 miles east of English, Indiana.  After their marriage, Crawford County, Indiana Deed Books noted that he and Caroline sold some of this property to W. P. or possibly W. A. Miller and James S. Miller, sons of William from his first marriage.  Together, they purchased land in Section 22, and also Caroline purchased property independently of William.  They resided in Section 22 probably between 1880 and 1893 before eventually moving to Texas with some of their married children and step-children.  Crawford County Marriage Books have revealed that some of Caroline’s children from her previous marriage and some of William’s children from his previous marriage were married in Crawford County during this time between 1880 and 1893.  See the children’s marriage’s listed below.  Jeannine (Ballew) Childers, Box 533, Rising Star, Texas 76471, corresponded with Nelson Scott and shared her research on the Texas lineages of the Millers, Scotts, and Shults families. 

In Wood Township, Clark County, Indiana, Robert G. Scott and Caroline held considerable farm and woodland property which they purchased from her father, Joseph M. Nicholson after their marriage in Section 17, Township 1 South, Range 5 East.[122] Also, they owned 160 acres in Section 8, Township 1 South, Range 5 East, which they sold to Caroline’s brother, Zachariah Nicholson.[123]  Also, Robert Scott was recognized as one of the earliest inhabitants in Section 18, Township 1 South, Range 5 East along with W.

ELIZABETH SCOTT and husband James McCutchan and husband George T. Ramey      

            Elizabeth Scott was born about 1828, Lafayette Township, Floyd County, Indiana, baptized Mt. Eden Christian Church, Greenville Township, Floyd County, Indiana, died 9 September 1861, Lafayette Township, buried Mt. Eden Cemetery, Greenville Township, Floyd County, Indiana, (1) married, Lafayette Township, 25 September 1851, James McCutchan‚ and (2) married, Lafayette Township, 11 May 1859, George T. Ramey.

            James McCutchan was born 27 March 1829‚ Lafayette Township, Floyd County, Indiana, baptized Mt. Eden Christian Church, died 16 June 1854‚[136] burial Mt. Eden Cemetery, married 25 September 1851, Lafayette Township, Floyd County, Indiana, Elizabeth Scott.

            James McCutchan’s parents were Samuel and Sarah (Reasor) McCutchan.[137]  His parents belonged to the McCutchan family that migrated from Virginia via Kentucky to Floyd County; whereas the other McCutchan’s listed above migrated from Virginia via East Tennessee to Floyd County.   

            George T. Ramey was born 1 September 1836, Lafayette Township, Floyd County, Indiana, died 14 September 1862, Munfordville‚ Kentucky or Indiana, Civil War death, burial Mt. Eden Cemetery, married Elizabeth (Scott) McCutchan‚ 11 May 1859, Lafayette Township, Floyd County, Indiana.

            Elizabeth (Scott) McCutchan Ramey was buried at the Mt. Eden Cemetery between the graves of her two husbands. 

            George Ramey’s burial stone said he was 26 years and 14 days old when he died.  Elizabeth’s tombstone indicated that she was 33 years old at death, 9 September 1861.  George’s obituary was in New Albany Daily Ledger, October 9, 1862.  “A New Albanian Killed--Among the killed of the Union soldiers at Munfordville was George T. Ramey of this city, who was a member of Company K., 67th Indiana Regiment.  Mr. Ramey, while bravely fighting in the battle of Tuesday was struck through the heart by a Minie ball.  He was a brave soldier and a good citizen.  Peace to his ashes. [138] 

            Elizabeth Scott had no children born in her first marriage to James McCutchan.  Census records have indicated that one daughter, Genette E. (Elizabeth) Ramey, was born to Elizabeth and George T. Ramey before Elizabeth’s death.  Genette Ramey was reared by her oldest aunt, America (Scott) McCutchan and her husband William S. McCutchan according to the 1870 & 1880 census records.  She was probably listed erroneously in the 1880 Census as a granddaughter when she was a niece to America and William McCutchan.  Elizabeth (Scott) McCutchan Ramey died 9 September 1861 which correlated well with the birth year for Genette.  Also, Elizabeth died before George T. Ramey enlisted for the Civil War.  During his military service, their only child was placed in the care of William and America (Scott) McCutchan.  No other information was available on Genette’s life.  William and America (Scott) McCutchan were very fond of the Ramey and Stacy families.

MARY JANE SCOTT, and husband, John W. Loweth

                Mary Jane Scott was born 1840, Scottsville, Lafayette Township, Floyd County, Indiana,[147] baptized Mt. Eden Christian Church, Greenville Township, Floyd County, died 18 March 1915, Corydon, Harrison County, Indiana, burial Chapel Hill Cemetery, Greenville Township, Floyd County, Indiana, married[148] 15 July 1860, Lafayette Township, Floyd County, Indiana, John W. Loweth.

            John W. Loweth was born 31 May 1839, Huntingtonshire, England, died 10 March 1918, Corydon, Indiana, burial Chapel Hill Cemetery.  John was the son of Robert Loweth and Elizabeth Roycroft, Huntingtonshire, England.[149] 

            John immigrated to America when he was a boy.  In 1867, when married to Mary Jane Scott, they moved to Corydon.  John helped run the Red Mills which were owned by Hisey & Denbo.  Subsequently, he bought part of the Eclipse Mills and later became the full owner of both the Red Mills and Eclipse Mills, the whole establishment.[150]  

            Mrs. George (Bernice) Loweth reported that John and Mary Jane were former owners of the land where the Gehlback Funeral Home now stands in Corydon, Indiana.  She has a copy of the funeral home pictures as it was remodeled through the years.  John W. Loweth was an uncle of George R. Loweth, husband to Penelope Scott, according to Mary (Loweth) Keach.

            Mary Jane Scott and John W. Loweth had no children in their marriage.

            John W. and Mary Jane (Scott) Loweth obituaries were as follows: [151]

            From the Corydon Democrat: John W. Loweth Passes Away at his home in Corydon--Lived Here More Than Fifty Years Born in England--Burial In Floyd County--John W. Loweth died quite suddenly at his home at this place about half past nine o’clock last Sunday afternoon, March 10 of heart trouble.  He had been complaining for a few days but his death was not expected.  Brief funeral services were held at the residence of the deceased at ten o’clock Tuesday morning, conducted by John H. Heath, which consisted of scripture reading and two songs, “Go Bury Thy Sorrows” and “Rock of Ages,” by a quartet composed of John H. Heath, Will J. Bulleit, Mrs. Lee Lockhart‚ and Miss Stella B. Caughlin.

            The service was attended by many friends and by quite a number of Masons of Pisgah Lodge of Corydon, who accompanied the remains to the depot on the way to New Albany, from whence the body was taken to Chapel Hill, in Floyd county, the place of interment, where it was laid beside the deceased’s wife, who died about three years ago.  A number of the Masons also attended the funeral services at Chapel Hill Tuesday afternoon, and John H. Heath accompanied the funeral party and conducted the services at Chapel Hill, assisted by Rev. Marion Brock, a Christian minister of that locality.  Mr. Loweth was born in England.  He came to this country at the age of eighteen years.  He located in Corydon fifty two years ago where he owned and operated the ‘White Mill’ for many years.  He retired from business several years ago.  He was eighty years old and leaves no immediate family.  No children were ever born to him.  He leaves surviving a nephew and a niece at New Albany, George R. Loweth and Mrs. B.W. Sands, both of whom were here to pay their last respects to their dead uncle.  He also leaves a sister somewhere in this country, location not known, and five brothers and two sisters, in England.  He was for many years a member of the Corydon Christian Church, but since the death of his wife he had removed his membership to Chapel Hill, near where they both now lie in the cemetery.  Mr. Loweth was a member of the Masonic order and the I.O.O.F. of Corydon.  The pallbearers at the service at Corydon were:  T.J. Wilson, Edgar Jordan, John Wallace, Dr. W.E. Amy, Evan Rosenbarger‚ and John H. Heath, all Masons.

            From the New Albany Weekly Ledger 24 March 1915, page 5, column 4: Mrs. Mary Loweth, wife of John Loweth, aged 84 years, died Thursday night at her home in Corydon.  The deceased was well known in this city and was an aunt of Mrs. George Loweth, Green Valley and of Messrs.  George Kay and Will Scott of this vicinity.  She was a member of the Christian Church and a good Christian woman.

Documentation:  No records have been found for Robert Scott and Winifred Green’s marriage.  The following documents are for the marriage of Robert Scott and Abagail Eliza (Harmon) Hedden:  (1) The Kentucky Historical Society Register, Marriages Shelby County, Kentucky, Volumes 23 (1925), 24 (1926), and 42 (1944), a typed list at Frankfort, Kentucky, derived from ministers who returned information about their officiated marriages.  Their entry said, “Robert Scott, father Hestra, to Eliza Harmon, father, Wm. Harmon, dated 29 September 1812; (2) Shelby County, Kentucky Marriage Records (1792-1830), Shelby County, Kentucky Courthouse.  The marriage record at the courthouse said Robert Scott and Abagail Harmon, dated 30 September 1812; Also a consent document with bond was posted, 29 September 1812, signed by Robert Scott and William Harmon giving his mark as her father; on consent bond, Abagail was first listed as “Abagail Heddy,” and then

 “Heddy” was scratched over and “Harmon” was listed above it.  Rev. John Mavity of Shelby County, Kentucky, ordained Christian Church pastor, officiated the wedding.  Rev. John Mavity served in the Indiana Christian Church Conference.[152]   He moved to Washington County, and later to Dubois County, Indiana. (3) Undated typescript “Kentucky, Shelby County, Early Marriage Records”, copied from original records at Shelby County by Mrs. J. N. Cunningham and Mrs. Graham Lawrence, Kentucky State Historical Society Library, Frankfort.

Documentation:   Robert Scott’s Will recorded in Shelby County, Kentucky Will Book 6 (1824), page 233:  Shelby County Kentucky:  August Court 1824.  In the name of God, Amen. I Robert Scott Junior of Shelby County and State of Kentucky being of sound mind and memory but weak in body and in the 64th year of my age, calling to mind that it is appointed unto all men to die do make and ordain this my last Will & Testament in manner & form as follows: First, I give & bequeath to my loving wife Abagail Scott my bay mare Simon and two cows and two feather beds, furniture, and as much more of the household and kitchen furniture as she may think is necessary for her to keep house with.  Also, it is my will that my wife have my negro girl Easter for the term of ten years from the time of my death to hire her out or keep her in her own employ as she may think proper.  And after the expiration of ten years, it is my will that the said Easter be sold in my family by some one of my children purchasing her by agreement or by sale, and the money equally divided among all my children but she is not to be sold out of the family.  Also it is my desire that the farm that I now live on together with the balance of my property not given to my wife be sold on a credit of two years and the money arising there from divided as follows:  My son James Scott to have $20.00; my daughter Margaret Ferrell $40.00; my daughter Elizabeth Carter $40.00; my son Darras Scott $40.00; my daughter Polly Mahurin $40.00; and the balance if any to be divided among all my children.  Also I desire that the Certificate for my land in the State of Indiana be taken out of the office by my son John Scott and sold and the money equally divided among all my children.  I further make and ordain James C. Burnett, Executor of this my last Will and Testament.  In testimony hereof, I have here unto set my hand this 13th day of April 1824. 

      Signed Robert Scott.   Witnesses:  James C. Burnett and Othniel Mahurin.

      Probate Entry, page 234.  Shelby County August Court 1824.  His Will was offered for probate with James C. Burnett appointed Executor.  Probate document was as follows:  A writing purporting to be the Last Will and Testament of Robert Scott Jen deceased was produced in court whereupon James C. Burnett and Othneal Mahurin, two of the subscribing witnesses to said writing, being duly sworn, state that said writing was signed, sealed, acknowledged and delivered by the said Robert Scott’s signature as “x” for his last Will and Testament and that they believe that the said Robert was of sound disposing mind and memory at the time of doing the same.  Which writing is ordered to be recorded and on motion of James C. Burnett who having taken upon himself the business of the Execution thereof and having taken the oath required by law and entered into bond with Othneal Mahurin his security in the penalty of $600.  Conditioned as the law directs probate of said Will is granted him in due form of Law. 

      ATT:  Ja. L. Whitaker, Ck. S.C.C.

      NOTES ABOUT THE WILL:  Robert Scott’s Will transcribed by the court listed him as “Robert Scott Junior” and the Probate record listed him as “Jen” which may be a court “short-hand” procedure to distinguish this Robert Scott from another Robert Scott who resided in Shelby county at this particular time.  If this was the point of “Junior” and “Jen” in the above documents as other researchers have believed in Court records, then it was not to suggest that his father was named Robert, too.

      Robert Scott’s Will identified all children except his son, Moses Scott, who nevertheless signed a receipt following the Sale and Settlement of Robert’s estate (see “Estate Settlement” below) which indicated that Moses, too, received his inheritance.  Ethel Faye York, descendant of this family, saw the receipt among the settlement papers in the Shelby County Courthouse in the 1970’s and Moses’ name was recorded in the Executor’s Settlement document submitted to the court.  Robert Scott’s second wife, Abagail, by virtue of this Will had no title to any of Robert Scott’s land.  Robert Scott effectively removed her from “Dowers Rights” when issuing the Will. Otherwise if he had died intestate she would have been automatically due 1/3rd of husband’s property if he failed to “Will” it otherwise.  Othniel Mahurin witnessed Robert Scott’s Will. Robert’s daughter, Mary (Polly) Scott, married Othniel’s eldest son, Samuel Mahurin.   

Documentation:  Robert Scott’s Estate Settlement, Bill of Sale, Shelby County, Kentucky Settlement Book 6, page 248, October Court 1824; Executors Settlement Book 7, page 140, June Court 1826, Shelby County, Kentucky

      The Bill of Sale named the following persons who purchased items from Robert Scott’s estate sale:  Abagail Scott; Samuel Mahurin (husband of his daughter, Mary Polly Scott); Joshua Richardson; James Gray; John Grafton; Zachariah Terrell; John McAllister; John Mitchell; Edward Harris; Othniel Mahurin; Elisha Hedden; Henry Tilley; John Fink; and Lewis Harmon.  Lewis Harmon purchased Robert Scott’s land and buildings for $205.00.

      The Executor’s final payments from the estate’s assets were given as follows:  paid $7.72 to John Blevins for balance due on a note; paid $7.25 to Dr. Nowaid or Noward, physician, for medical services; paid tax ($2.22) for the year, 1823; paid $4.00 for some unknown fee; paid $12.00 to John Mitchell for making the coffin for Robert Scott’s burial; paid $2.00 for whiskey for the estate sale; paid $2.00 to the appraisers; paid $25.00 to Executor for personal services; paid $4.00 to the court for fees; paid $42.50 to Thomas Ferrell for wife’s legacy; paid $50.00 to Samuel Mahurin for wife’s legacy; paid $54.00 to Dorris Green Scott for his legacy; paid $54.00 to Joseph Carter for his wife’s legacy; paid $14.00 to John Scott for his legacy; paid $22.50 to James Scott for his legacy; paid $14.00 to Moses Scott for his legacy.  After making these payments, the Executor informed the court that he had a balance of $33.95 ½ cents in the Estate Account for distribution.  The balance was probably distributed among the legatees but no other court documents were available for that distribution.

History of the Ohio Falls Cities and their Counties, Vol. II, L.A. Williams & Co., Cleveland, Ohio, 1882, “Scottsville, Indiana”, pages 313 - 314.

      The fifth and last settlement to be mentioned is that in the vicinity of the village of Scottsville in the northwestern part of (Lafayette) township.  A settlement was made here by two brothers named Moses and John Scott, in 1812.  They were from Kentucky, and brought with them large families.  Moses Scott’s children numbered ten, as follows:  America, Melinda, Catharine, Indiana and Louisiana (twins), George, Robert, Elizabeth, Moses, and Mary Jane. These children married and scattered, and only America and George are now living in the township.

      John Scott’s family consisted of wife and twelve children -- Reasor, Emily, James, Vardeman, Robert, David, Herbert, Wesley, Moses and three others who died young.  He settled upon the present site of Scottsville, where he remained until he died.  The Scotts were especially supporters of the Mormon church, which still maintains a quasi-existence in that neighborhood, and some of them removed to Salt Lake City, where they now reside.  One, at least, is a Mormon elder.  The old log church, which stands in Greenville township, receives attention in the history of that township elsewhere in this division of our work. 

      David Fannin was also an early settler in this part of the township, and owned a horse-mill in a very early day--probably the first mill in the township.

      The village of Scottsville was laid out on the east half of the northwest quarter of section twenty-five, town one, range six east, March 23, 1853.  It was in the form of a parallelogram, with only two streets--West and Main. It never had any great expectations, and it is not at all in danger of becoming a great city.  A blacksmith and repair-shop, a store, and a few dwellings have always, so far, constituted the town.  The post-office was established here about 1860; John Williams was the first postmaster, and Wesley Scott the next and present incumbent.  Mr. Scott is also the village blacksmith.  The store is at present kept by Nicholas Keiffer.  There are seven or eight dwellings, and forty or more people in the village.

      It was probably as late as 1840 before all the land in this township was entered for settlement.  It was not entered as early as other lands further south, lying near the highways of travel, and, though the most desirable land in this township that lying along the streams, was entered and occupied quite early, there is much land not desirable for general farming purposes in the township that remained unoccupied many years after the first and later settlements were made.  Until the turnpike was made in 1836-37, the township was considerably on one side of any line of travel, and consequently remained in a wild and unsettled condition long after those further south and east of the knobs were well settled.

      The farms are now generally well cultivated, the farm-houses largely frame and in good condition.  Quite a number of log houses, however, are yet used as dwellings.  The people are generally sober, honest, industrious, religious.  They are prosperous, and their children go to school.  There are eight good school-houses in the township, conveniently situated, so that every child of school age can attend.

      The first school in the Scott settlement was probably taught by James McCutchan, in a log house near the site of Mt. Eden Church, now in Greenville Township.  The first school on Big Indian creek was also taught by James McCutchan.  The first school-house in the township, in this direction, was built in 1820, on the place now occupied by Mr. Crawford Searles; William Graham was the first teacher here.

The Scott Family:  A Pioneer Family of Kentucky and Indiana

by Wesley G. Scott

      John Scott, my father, was born in Woodford County, Kentucky, married to Anna Reasor, 1-11-1813, in which state his children Emily and Reasor Scott were born.  Coming to Indiana while it was still a territory, coming as far as the Ohio River, no navigation or boats, having to cross the river in his own canoe.  Bringing his wife and children the first load then returning to obtain the household goods or belongings.  In marching up the bank he found nothing but laurel growing where the city of New Albany is now situated.  The first residents he saw was a cabin owned by a man named Whittaker what is now called the Laden Farm. There he left his family for a few days.  Taking his gun he traveled through the forest 10 or 12 miles north.  There he built himself a cabin.  The nearest neighbors he had was a man by the name of Lewis, who lived in what is now called Borden, Clark County, Indiana.  His little cabin was surrounded by deer, wolf, bears, and panthers. 

      A while after he established himself in his home.  There was a company formed in Shelbyville, Kentucky by Captain Allen.  A skirmish by the Indians began at what we now call Petersburg, which lasted two days in which they buried 160 Indians.  The burial ground remains to be seen a few miles from Petersburg.  They drove the Indians to Pigeon Roost where they had considerable battle.( A )

      Sometime after this there was an election held to vote whether this should be a free or slave state.  The election was also held at Lewis’ in Jefferson District.  John Scott, clerk of the board, presided.  The entire vote cast in the district was 360.  Out of that 60 for slavery and the remainder for free state.  Not being familiar with the exact date, I am taking this from my father’s records. 

      The first President he ( 1 ) voted for was Thomas Jefferson being 20 years old.  He placed 21 leaves in the bottom of his shoes saying he was over 21.  He was a life long democrat voting from Jefferson to Buchannan.  He was also one of the men that helped raise the state house at Corydon, Ind. After the boundary line was settled and the counties laid off, he took a claim of 160 acres of government land which was patented at Jeffersonville, Indiana.  His claim being in Floyd County.  Afterwards this was thrown into townships.  He was elected magistrate in 1825, served 10 years.

      After coming to this country ( 2 & B ) there were born to them eight boys and two girls, making 10 in all, named as follows:

      Reasor married to Elizabeth Dunbar from North Carolina, Emily married to David Beggarly from Virginia, Robert to Rhoda Thompson from Kentucky, ( C ) James H. married to Barbra Miller from Indiana. Vardemon married to Elizabeth Smith from Kentucky.  John A. ( 3 & D ) married to Marion ( 4 & E ) Beggarly from Virginia, Herbert married to Nancy McKinley a second cousin of President McKinley, ( B1 ) Wesley G. married to Rebecca McClintock from Kentucky.  David married to Mary Furgeson from Indiana. ( F ) Elizabeth married to Thomas Akers from Virginia. ( 5 & B2 )

      John Scott was married by his father Robert Scott a Baptist Minister who was born in Scotland 1721, leaving Scotland and going to Wales from there to England, back to Wales marrying Winifred Green in 1740, (6 & G & B3)    moving then to where the city of Richmond Virginia now is located.  After this moving to Woodford County, Kentucky then died in 1818.  His father named Herbert Scott ( B4 ) was born in Edinburg, Scotland in 1667, married a woman of Saxon race by the name of Mary Vardemon.(7 & 8 & H)   He was a brother of Walter Scott, father of Sir Walter Scott.  Robert Scott of history was a grandfather of Sir Walter Scott.  David Scott, the artist of history, was the father ( I ) of Eliha (Elijah), the brother of the Baptist Minister spoken of.  Winfield Scott’s forefathers ( J ) residing in Scotland, scattering, some moving to Maryland, others to Virginia where he was born, and became an officer in the United States Army.

      ( 9 ) The sons of Eliha (Elijah) were Harmon, Moses, Robert and John. Harmon Scott settled in Indiana, Moses and John settled in Kentucky, Robert remained in Virginia. ( 10 ) John Scott was president of a college in Kentucky where Benjamin Harrison, ex-president received his education.  Afterwards Benjamin Harrison marrying John Scott’s daughter Caroline Scott, settling in Ohio, was governor.  Then became President of the United States.  Afterwards his wife died.  In a few years he married another Scott, relative of his first wife.

       ( 11 )   Walter Scott, as spoken of, is the first man in history who clearly taught the place and design of baptism for the remission of sins.  Walter Scott went to Edinburgh and entered the university where he remained until the completion of his college course.

      In 1818, we find him in America acting as assistant teacher in the city of Pittsburgh in association with Geo. Forrester, a devout and loving Scotchman.  The subsequent career of Mr. Scott and the particulars of his place, and power in the current reformation, must be studied in the larger treaterises of his life and work of Baxter, Richardson and others.  The following brief estimates will answer the purpose of this pictorial glimpses, “next to my father he was the most cordial and indefatigable fellow laborer in the origin and progress of the present reformation.  He was a powerful and successful advocate of the Lord Messiah.”

      “I knew him well:  I knew him long:  I have loved him much” -- Alexander Campbell on the death of Walter Scott

      In view of its sublime and far reaching revelation, its cogent logic and still more striking analytical division and just discriminations, the literature of the reformation seems to me to grow very pale and dim. “I have never come in contact with a man more largely and deeply versed in the holy scripture.”  Some of the most valuable thoughts that have given form, clearness and force to our plea and have become current among us had the origin with Walter Scott, the very Cheralier Bayard of the reformation, a star of wondrous brightness in our galaxy of great men was this kingly pioneer herald of the restoration.  It is true that to him more than to any other man should be ascribed the rescue of the Scripture foundation of the church, from the rubbish which had covered it during the ages of the Apostasy.

      After a brief illness of seven days “Walter Scott truthfully and peacefully fell asleep in Jesus.”  At Mayslick Kentucky April 23, 1861.  His last words were concerning the Gospel of Christ and the honor of fellowship with the herald of the cross.  In the village graveyard his remains were laid to rest but for thirty six years his resting place was unmarked.  In November 1897 a monument was erected which cost $262.  This amount was raised by popular subscriptions through the columns of the “Christian Guide” and chiefly by the efforts of Walter Scott Smith, grandson of Water Scott then the editor of the Indiana department of the paper.

      As we look upon the ripening grain in the field adjoining the great man’s resting place and recall his abundant laborers and rich harvest of soles, one could fittingly appropriate the words, “Thou shalt come to thy grave in a full age like as a stalk of corn ascendeth in its season.”

      Sir Walter, the son of Walter Scott the great novelist who was born in 1771, so early as 1805 before his great poems were produced, Scott had entered on the composition of Naverly.  The first of his illustrious progeny of tales, next came Marmion, the Black Dward, Old Mortality, Rob Boy, and the Bride of Lammermoor.  In 1820 he wrote the historical Romance of Ivanhoe.  The gaiety of Scott was the natural concomitant of kindly and uninterrupted industry.  The minds of poets, it is said never grow old.  And Scott was hopeful to the last.  Disease, however, was a pest, undermining his strength.  His last work of fiction, published in 1831 was a fourth series of tales of My Landlord, containing Counte Robert of Paris and Castle Dangerous.  They were written after repeated shocks of paralysis and apoplexy, and are mere shadows of his former greatness.  And with this effort closed the noble mind that had so long swayed the scepter of romance.  The public received the imperfect volumes with tenderness and indulgence as the farewell offering, the greatest of their contemporaries.  The last feeble glean of a light soon to be extinguished: --

      A wandering witch-note of the distant spell; and now tis silent all; Enchanter, Fare-thee well! 

      We may note the wonderful success of novels as a mercantile speculation.  At the time of his death his life insurance were realized there was still a balance due of 30,000.  This debt, the publishers of Scott’s works, Mr. Cadell, ultimately took on himself receiving in return the copyright of the works:  And before his death in 1849, Mr. Cadell had set the estate of Abbots-ford free from encumbrance.  The poetry of Scott, too, seems equally popular, and there has been a keen rivalry among London publishers to re-produce editions in various forms.

      Sir Walter Scott known as one of the greatest novelist the world ever produced, died at his home in “Abbotsford Notanda” in 1832. 

      John Scott, my father, having three brothers, James, Moses, Darris Scott. 

      James marrying Elizabeth Shultz of German descent. ( 12 & B5 ) Born to them eight children, five boys and three girls namely:  Matilda marrying a Brock of German descent; Malinda marrying a Schryms from Virginia; Sarah married a Mann from Virginia; Robert marrying a woman by the name of Johnson;   ( 13 & B6 ) James marrying a lady from Brunerstown, ( 14 & B7 ) Kentucky, not familiar with the name.  He and his brother, Louis, formerly owned the Farmers’ Hotel at Louisville, Kentucky; Peter leaving home in 1821 going to Arkansas ( 15 & B8 ) when a young man, marrying in that state; Samuel having died when about twenty one years old.(16 & B9 )  

      James Scott, Sr., as stated above was one of the delegates at the Convention that framed the first Constitution of Ind. that met at Corydon, Indiana, then the capitol of the Indiana Territory and the first capitol of the state on June 10, 1816 and June 29, 1816 having completed its work.  It took but nineteen days to complete Indiana’s laws.  A great deal of this work was done under the branches of a great Elm tree that stood upon the “Public Square” or State House grounds of Corydon.  And that great Elm has been historic, known as the Constitutional Elm. It stands to this day.  The grandest landmark in the pioneer history of Indiana.

APPENDIX F

Elizabeth (Shindler) Scott’s Antecedents

by Mrs. Clay W. York

      Mrs. Clay W. York, (Ethel Fay), sent the following information to Nelson S. Scott, dated 21 May 1981, when she was residing at 8600 U. S. 41 North - Box 91, Palmetto, Florida.   Nelson Scott has included her complete work of research which contained references that are listed following the Shindler family’s information.

      Elizabeth (Shindler) Scott’s father was Johann George Shindler, born 2 August 1762, probably Philadelphia or in nearby Chester County, Pennsylvania.  He was called George.  No information was available as to the name of George’s wife or when and where they were married.  We do know that after he was married he lived somewhere in Virginia because his oldest children were born there.  We also know that his wife was born in Pennsylvania according to the 1880 census record of their daughter, Hannah, who indicated that her parents were born in Pennsylvania.   They were married sometime around 1786 or 1787, Pennsylvania.  The 1810 Shelby County, Kentucky Census record of George does not contain a female who would have been the age of his wife, so she probably died before 1810.

      According to George’s obituary, the family came to Shelby County in 1790 from Virginia.  We first find George on the tax list of Shelby County in 1796.  In his later years, he resided with his daughter, Hannah.  He died in Shelby County, 5 December 1854, at the age of 92 years, 4 months, and 3 days.

      Along with his father, George served in the Revolutionary War.  According to his obituary in the New Albany Daily Tribune of 14 December 1854, he entered the service of his country at the age of 16.  He first appeared on the rolls of the York County Pennsylvania Militia in 1780, then as a Private in the 3rd Class, 6th Company, 3rd Battalion under Captain George Long (sometimes written as Lang).

     By May of 1786, he was an Ensign in the 2nd Company, 1st Battalion, serving under Captain George Lutman, Lieutenant Colonel Henry Miller, and Major Peter Ford of the York County Militia.

      Johann George Shindler and his wife were the parents of 8 known children.

(1)  George Shindler, Jr., was born about 1788, died 1844, married 5 May 1812, Shelby County, Kentucky, Susannah Morehead.  They resided in Shelby County during their lifetime.

(2)  Elizabeth Shindler was born 10 December 1790, Virginia, died 19 September 1864, Scottsville, Floyd County, Indiana, buried Mt. Eden Cemetery, Greenville Township, Floyd County, Indiana, married 23 May 1810, Beech Creek Baptist Church, Shelby County, Kentucky, Moses Scott.  Elizabeth and Moses went to Floyd County, Indiana and helped establish the Scottsville settlement.

(3)  Mary Ann (Polly) Shindler was born about 1792, Virginia, died 5 November 1871, New Albany, Indiana, married (1) 3 November 1818, Shelby County, Kentucky, George Stacy who died in 1821; married (2) 20 May 1826, Clark County, Indiana, Samuel T. McClintick who died in 1849.  Mary Ann and George Stacy resided in Clark County, Indiana.  After the death of her second husband, Samuel, Mary was in New Albany, Indiana by 1860.

(4)  Nancy Shindler was born about 1795, died between 1835/1841, married 28 September 1819, Shelby County, Kentucky, John Muster.  They resided during their lifetime in Kentucky.

(5)  John Shindler was born about 1799, Shelby County, Kentucky, died 1860, Shelby County, Kentucky, married Mary F. whose surname was possibly Campbell.  But nothing is definite about Mary’s surname.  They resided during their lifetime in Shelby County.

(6)  William Shindler was born about 1800, moved to New Albany, Indiana where he married (1) 17 February 1825, Elisabeth Bradshaw, who died about 1853, married (2) Millicent Hand, married (3) Sarah E. Cohoe.

Federal Census Records.  William Shindler household, 1830 U.S. census, Floyd County, Indiana, page 341; National Archives micropublication M19; Roll 28:  William Shindler, 2 males under 5, 1 male of 30 under 40, 1 female under 5, 1 female of 20 under 30

(7)  Catharine Shindler was born about 1802, Shelby County, Kentucky, died by 1841, married 24 March 1826, Shelby County, Kentucky, Finley McClintick.  During their lifetime, they resided in Shelby County.

(8)  Hannah Shindler was born about 1803, Shelby County, Kentucky, died after 1884, Shelby County, married 28 November 1827, Shelby County, James S. McClintick (1798 - 1884)

      Elizabeth (Shindler) Scott’s grandfather was George Conrad Shindler, born about 1732, Wurtemburg, Germany.  He was called Conrad.  Wurtemburg was a province of Germany located in the area of the Black Forest.  The name Shindler was derived from a German word that means, one who made roofing shingles.  George Conrad Shindler came to America from Wurtemburg on the sailing ship, Snow Louisa, sailing from Rotterdam, and from Cowes, arriving in Philadelphia the 8th of November 1752. 

      It is possible that Conrad may be the son of John George Shindler, age 44, who arrived at Philadelphia, 12 December 1754 on board the Ship Neptune.

      Conrad first settled in Chester County, Pennsylvania where he was listed on the tax rolls from 1769 through 1772 with 100 acres of land, 3 horses, 4 cows, and 3 sheep. 

      We next find record of him in York County, Pennsylvania where he is on the tax rolls for the years 1777 through 1783 with 169 acres.

      Conrad served in the York County, Pennsylvania Militia during the Revolutionary War.  At first he served as Private in the 5th Class, 6th Company, 3rd Battalion, under Captain George Long.  In 1780, this same unit became known as the 2nd Company, 1st Battalion, serving under Lieutenant Colonel Henry Miller and Major William Bailey.

      Shortly after the Revolutionary War was over, Conrad and his family left Pennsylvania for Virginia.  In Berkeley County, we find him on the tax rolls from 1789 through 1801.  At that time, Berkeley County’s domain was distributed into the domain of new counties.  The Shindlers lived in that part of old Berkeley County that became Jefferson County and after the Civil War, Jefferson County was a part of West Virginia. 

      Conrad Shindler died sometime by 1812 in Jefferson County, Virginia which is now West Virginia.

      Conrad Shindler and his wife, whose name is not available, were the parents of 6 known children.

(1)  Mary or Maria Shindler was born 4 December 1760, Pennsylvania, died 4 November 1847, Berkeley County, Virginia, married about 1773, Peter Crim.

(2)  Johann George Shindler was born 2 August 1762, Pennsylvania, died 5 December 1854, Shelby County, Kentucky.

(3)  Richard Shindler married a woman named Deborah.  They lived in Jefferson County, Virginia, now West Virginia.

(4)  Nancy Shindler married John Kohe and they lived in Hardin County, Kentucky.

(5)  Elizabeth Shindler married (1) a Mr. Jackman; married (2) 2 June 1797, Michael Rickard.  They lived in Jefferson County, Virginia.

(6)  Conrad Shindler, Jr., was born 8 May 1778, Pennsylvania, died 1852, married Elizabeth Richardson.  They lived in Jefferson County, Virginia.

[158] Ibid., Wesley G. Scott’s Memoirs reported the birth year.

[159] Mt. Eden Church Cemetery tombstone read by Nelson Scott and other Scott genealogists.  The Mt. Eden tombstone incorrectly stated his age at death as 71 years, 14 days.  His age at death was 81 years14 days which complies with his birth year as stated in the Memoirs by his son Wesley G. Scott.  John Scott’s grandchildren also put monuments in memory of their grandparents, John and Anna Reasor Scott, at Chapel Hill Cemetery, Chapel Hill Christian Church, Greenville Township, Floyd County, Indiana.  On the Chapel Hill monuments, John Scott’s birth year was correctly stated as 1781. 

[160] Kentucky Historical Society, Frankfort, Kentucky, typed sheet listing Shelby County, Kentucky marriages.  Their marriage bond also included Anna Reasor’s birth date.  Wesley Scott’s Memoirs claim that John and Anna were married by Robert Scott, a Baptist Minister, but nothing was found to indicate who married them.

[162] Margaret Scott’s birth year was presumed from an analysis of census records, her marriage bond date and, the birth years of brothers and sisters.  Her father, Robert Scott, actually named his daughters in his Will from the eldest to the youngest.  See Appendix A.

[163] Ibid., Wesley G. Scott’s Memoirs reported her year of death

[164] Clark County Kentucky Marriage Record, Volume I - W, (1793-1831), Clerk’s office, Winchester, Kentucky, page 47.  Her brother, James Scott posted marriage bond and served as affiant due to her father’s absence as being the daughter of Robert Scott.

[165] Thomas Ferrell does not appear in 1840 Indiana Census, Floyd County, Greenville Township, only Margaret was named as head of household.  However, upon the marriage of his daughter, Sarah Ann “Sallie” Ferrell to William Scott, 2 June 1844, the marriage record showed that Sarah’s father gave his consent.  Probably the marriage record referred to Sarah Ann Ferrell’s brother, Thomas Ferrell, Jr. Thomas Ferrell, Sr., probably died before the 1840 Census.

[167] Both Moses Scott and Elizabeth Shindler’s birth and death dates were found on their tombstone, Mt. Eden Cemetery, Greenville Township, Floyd County, Indiana.  His birth year coincides with the formation date of Woodford County, Virginia which was created from Fayette County, Virginia.  Woodford County became the property of Kentucky upon Statehood in 1792. 

[168] Shelby County, Kentucky Marriages, Kentucky Historical Society: they were married by Rev. Moses Scott, minister of the Beech Creek Baptist Church, Shelby County, Kentucky.

[169] The Shelbyville News, (Shelbyville, Kentucky) had the following obituary on George Shindler: Departed this life on the 5th day of December, 1854, Mr. George Shindler (for the last 64 years a citizen of this county,) age 92 years, four months and three days.  The deceased was a soldier in the revolutionary war, when only 16 years of age.  He emigrated from Virginia to this county (Shelby County, Kentucky) in 1790.

[170] John Amos Dimmit, compiler, Morgan County Kentucky Centennial Book and Folder, West Liberty Public Library, Morgan County, Kentucky.  Mr. Dimmit (deceased) was Carter family genealogist-historian.  Elizabeth Anne Scott’s birth place was family folklore but all other information can be verified in Bath County, Montgomery County, and Morgan County, marriage records, cemeteries, deeds, Wills, census records gleaned and shared in family reunions through the years.  The Carter family research included 8 generations and it was done independently from Scott family researchers.  The Carters confirmed in their folklore that Elizabeth Anne Scott was daughter of Robert Scott.

[171] Polly Scott’s birth was based on the way that her father named his daughters from the eldest to the youngest in his Will. See Appendix A. Also, her birth was presumed from her marriage bond date and the birth years of brothers and sisters. 

[172] Annie Walker Burns, Kentucky Vital Statistics Record of Marriages in Shelby County, Kentucky 1792-1851, Frankfort, Kentucky, 1932, page 55; also, Kentucky Historical Society Library, Frankfort, Kentucky, Shelby County Marriage Bonds.  Marriage bond identified Othniel (Othenile) Mahurin as father to Samuel Mahurin and Polly as daughter of Robert Scott; mother, Abagail Scott (actually Polly’s step-mother), bondsman was James Alsup.  Wesley G. Scott’s Memoirs said “Mary Scott married Frederick Razor from Woodford County, Kentucky in 1819, settled in Spencer County, Kentucky and lived there until his death in 1842.”   We must revise his memoirs for Mary (Polly) Scott’s marriage was with Samuel Mahurin of Shelby County, Kentucky.  Robert Scott’s estate settlement papers after his death showed that his daughter’s legacy was issued to Samuel Mahurin.

[173] Francis Harding Huron, Mahurin Family:  The Later Generations (privately published, Winchester, Massachusetts, 1994), page 7:  available at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Family History Center, Salt Lake, Utah. Ron Mahurin, 1302 25th Street, Terre Haute, Indiana 47803, was a researcher for this book and collaborated with Nelson S. Scott on the relationships between the Mahurin and Scott families.  All information on Cynthia Ann (Scott) Mahurin’s descendants was extracted from this book.

[174] Wesley G. Scott and Ron Mahurin agreed that Mary (Polly) Scott’s husband died probably around 1842.  It is interesting that they both reach that conclusion with reference to different husbands for Mary (Polly) Scott.  The date of her husband’s death was probably correct.  No other information is available at this juncture of research.

[175] Dorris Green Scott’s birth year was presumed from family folklore as the youngest child of Robert and Winifred (Green) Scott and birth year was estimated from his marriage date and census records. 

[176] Jackson County Marriage Book C, page 43, County Clerk’s Office, Brownstown, Indiana.  Upon obtaining the marriage license on 22 October 1849 for Loamma L. Scott and Elizabeth Collier, Lindsey L. Lucas, gave his oath that Loamma L. Scott’s father, Dorris Scott, was deceased.  Lindsey L. Lucas’ oath was appended to the marriage record.  Nancy Scott was a widow in the 1850 Census:  Nancy Scott household, 1850 U.S. census, Jackson County, Indiana, population schedule, Salt Creek township, page 112, dwelling 227, family 230; National Archives micro publication M432, roll 152; also, from an analysis of Robert M. G. Scott’s deeds transactions in Appendix D, (Robert, son of Dorris and Nancy), it can be presumed that Dorris died about 1846.

[178] Nancy Lucas’ middle initial “E” was in Jackie “Jack” Arlen Scott’s family records.  Jack was a descendant of Nancy Lucas and Dorris Green Scott.  Jack resided in Seymour, Indiana.

[179] Nancy (Lucas) Scott’s birth year was from census records.
