States: Illinois: Edgar
Yes, I am related to Samuel Scott who had Josephus who had William Henry Scott who had Orion Patrick Scott who had me, David Chapman Scott. One of my cousins, lives in Paris, IL, Judge Richard Scott. The Carter's are also all my cousins in Paris, IL. Yes, my Scott line did come in through IN where Josephus was born in 1829. When they first came to America they were in VA and then KY and on into IN and IL. I have gone back to the Scotts coming from Scotland in or around 1733. Yes, I have heard of William Scott and his wife Catherine Legate. Brenda Berg has sent to me many, many pages of the genealogy she has and my wife and I have also done work at the Edgar County Genealogy Library in Paris. We have found that this GenForum site has been MOST helpful. Just this past week I found another cousin whose people ended up in IL. The Duck Family who married into my mother's side. Mother was a Chapman, and married Orion Patrick Scott. So good to met you. Here's to lots of good messages and hunting for ALL our ancestors. Let me know how I might be of help.
