Not my family line, just sharing.

From the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F. A. Battey & CO., Publishers. 1883."
page 438, Round Grove Township, White County, Indiana

"ELEAZER H. SCOTT was born in Hamilton County, Indiana, January 2, 1835, and is one of the eleven children born to ANDERSON W. and MARY (BURNSIDE) SCOTT, natives respectively of Virginia and North Carolina. ANDERSON SCOTT came to Wayne County, this State (Indiana), when a young man; bought a farm near Richmond; was there married and there resided about seventeen years, when he sold out and moved to Hamilton County, where he bought a farm of 200 acres, on which he lived until 1850, when he moved to Tippecanoe County (Indiana), and thence to Kankakee County, Illinois, in 1857. In November, 1861, he enlisted in Company A, Fifty-eighth Illinois Volunteer Infantry, and took part in the storming of Forts Donelson and Henry; at the battle of Shiloh he was severely wounded and was taken prisoner, but was soon exchanged, and in July, 1862, was discharged on account of his wounds at the hospital at Camp Denison, Ohio. In November, 1863, he enlisted in Company A, One Hundred and Twenty-eighth Illinois Voulunteer Infantry, and served through the Georgia campaign, and was again wounded at the battle of Resaca. He was mustered out in June, 1865, and bought a farm in Newton County, Indiana, which he sold in 1877, since when he has been living with his children. He is seventy-five years old, has been for many years a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and is a member of the G.A.R.; his wife died August 23, 1879, and she also, was a devoted member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. ELEAZER H. SCOTT, at the age of nineteen, began life for himself, and in August, 1862, enlisted in Company C, Seventy-second Illinois Mounted Infantry, which formed a part of GENERAL WILDER'S brigade. He took part in the battle of Chickamauga, was through the Atlanta campaign, fought at Franklin and Nashville, and was at the storming of Selma. He was mustered out at Indianapolis in July, 1865, farmed a year in Tippecanoe County, Indiana, and in the spring of 1867 came to this township, of which he has been twice elected Trustee. July 30, 1856, he married HANNAH T. DARBY, who was born in Marion County April 7, 1839, and is now the mother of seven children. MR. SCOTT is the owner of a good farm of 240 acres; he is a Republican, and both he and wife are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church."
