Scott and Prior Family

I am looking for any information on John Scott married Mary Prior Greenbrier Area sometime in 1700's. Their children were : Joseph, William, Celia, James C, and John,Jr. They left this area when the wilderness road was opened and went to Lexington,KY area. Mary was the daughter of a John Prior or Pryor supposedly killed during an Indian attack along with most of his family. His wife and 6mo. old baby and 14 yr old daughter were captured. The baby and then the wife were killed as the trip to the river started. Mary, the 14 yr old was taken across the Ohio River and marched for several days to their village. She later escaped and made it back across the Ohio to a fort and then returned to the Greenbrier area where she married John Scott. Phyllis Bush
