Death of a Pioneer

In the passing of H. D. Scott, who died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. W. H. KINSEY, in Grand Rapids, Crockery township loses it's oldest pioneer and Ottawa county, one of it's first settlers. Mr. Scott was born in Kotland [?], Vt., ninty-one years ago. He removed to Nunica in the early '40's clearing up the farm where he had lived alone. The country there was a vast forest traversed only by Indian trails.
In 1852, he married Artamisea [Artami???] M. HEDGES, of Lamont, who died only a few months ago, after a wedded life of more that fifty-seven years. Mr. Scott leaves three daughters and one son. They are: Mrs. John HOLMES, Miss Kate SCOTT, and Sidney SCOTT, all of Nunica, and Mrs. W. H. KINSEY, of Grand Rapids. The body was brought to Nunica Tuesday and funeral services were held at the Methodist Episcopal church.
The funeral of Horace Scott was held at the M. E. Church last week Wednesday afternoon. Mr. Scott has been a resident of this township for 60 years and was well and favorably known. He was the oldest resident of the town, being 93 years old. A son and three daughters survive him.
