Correction: It was not Wm. Scott, b. 1782 NC who m. a dau. of Thomas Ayers of Patrick Co., VA, but rather his father, Wm. Scott, b. ca. 1755 who m. the Ayers woman. This marriage probably took place in Surry Co., NC, as Thomas Ayers was living there at that time, though I have not found a record of the marriage there. By 1785 Wm. Scott, Sr. was in Henry Co., VA, then Patrick Co., VA ca. 1794, possibly in Wythe Co., VA for a short time before going to Wayne Co., KY with his family ca. 1804 where he remained until his death post 1830 census. His son, Wm. Scott, Jr. m. Celia Conn in Wayne co., Ky 1809; they later were in Bedford Co., TN in 1830 and finally Yell Co., AR where they probably died after the 1850 census. I believe that Wm. Scott, Sr. was part of a Scott family in Orange Co., VA, basing this on the 1786/89 will of yet another Wm. Scott.
