A Genealogical History of the Scott Family, Descendants of Alexander Scott


This 1939-40 work is refreshingly simple in its presentation. Each page contains a brief biography followed by a list of children (with birth dates and spouses, if known). Then each child receives his or her own page (if information exists), and so on. Some lines reach into the early twentieth century. Two to three pages are required for those individuals who left a larger record of their lives. Information was carefully gleaned from land grants, patents, wills, deeds, censuses, court records, pension applications and family Bibles. Some of those documents are reprinted in this book. Although there is no index, the table of contents clearly lays out the order in which these Scott descendants are presented. Those who served in the American Revolution and the War of 1812 are listed at the end of the book. Among the families studied in this work are Pindall, Chipps, Bouslog, Morgan, Martin, Daugherty, Hamilton, Fickel, Skinner, Spencer, Dusenberry, McCord, Dent and Comegys.
