William Scott was born in Selkirk, Scotland to Walter and Janet (Inglis) Scott. He married Lucy James in Halifax County in 1739. They had 12 children and he died in Bedford Co., VA Nov. 24, 1794. He left a will but I have not seen it. His son Joseph, who married Mary Talbot,was born in Goose Creek, Bedford Co in 1757. I have heard there is a will for William but haven't found it or any will for his son Joseph.
I am hoping to find Joseph had a son, Alexander born about 1783. This Alexander was my 3rd great grandfather and I found him in 1850 in Rappahannock Co., VA. Several of Williams children came through Washington County and up to the Culpeper and Rappahannock Co. area so it is likely this Alexander is one of his grandchildren.
Is anyone looking at this Scott family of Bedford County and could you help me sort them out or find any kind of records on them?
