You might go to the Soundex Cards for the 1900 US Census on Missouri. Look under Scott and Lear, to see if the ggrandmother is listed under Scott or Lear. It would be time comsuming because the information would be listed under the head of household. Your relatives would be about 16 or so. They would probably be living with their stepfather if the mother had remarried. Usually, children left the house at around 18. I had relatives ages 21 and 22 living with relatives in Bates County in 1870 after their father died in the civil war and their stepmother remarried. Their natural mother died just before the civil war. This is just an idea. You still might look for the history of Bates County that was pubished around 1876. I found a copy of it reprinted by a St. Joseph, MO firn in 1920's. It was in the Clayton Library in Houston, Texas. Clayton is considered to be the best genealogy library in the Southwest. If you are in Missouri, there may be a local library or a library near by with Bates County book. Your local library may be able to help you find a library that has a copy. I hope this helps.
