I was researching my great great-grandmother, Flora Scott
(mother of Fulton Scott). I had no other information on them, except that Fulton was born about 1855 in Alabama. In 1880, he is on the Federal Census in Bell, Texas...age 25, living with his mother Flora Scott. His father's birthplace is shown as North Carolina but his name was not listed there.
Could this be the first wife of Charles Hardy Ellis, two children of that marriage, who you refer to in your quest?
The dates don't appear to conflict.
Do you know if Charles Hardy Ellis was born in North Carolina, later lived in Alabama, or had a son named Fulton?
Then, would Scott be Flora's maiden name?
My research has also led me to believe that they referred to themselves as, "Black Dutch". This is a cover term for persons with some American Indian blood, especially with the Cherokee. These cultural groups also called themselves, "Black Irish"; as a way of avoiding loosing their land etc....not being deported along the, "Trail of Tears".
If you could get me to the original source where you found Flora Ellen Scott's name, I might be able to piece some information together.
Thank you for any information or leads.
