INTRODUCTION

 

Research on the family of the above couple has been complicated by the presence of other Francis Scotts in Washington Co., Pa. in the same decades and by the fact that all used many of the same given names for their children.  Mary Scott, in a two-page address written for the 1908 reunion of the Hammond[1] & Scott families (figures 1 & 1a), herself confuses the relationship of her major protagonists – Alexander Scott, Charles Scott, and Francis Scott.  The common attribute of these men is that all moved with their families to Guernsey Co., Ohio from Washington Co., Pa.

 

Mary was a resident of Cambridge, Ohio, the county seat for Guernsey.  She reported nothing on Scotts outside of Guernsey Co. and seems to have confused the relationships of those within Guernsey.  For instance, the Alexander Scott mentioned in the second paragraph is not the American progenitor of the Scott family, but rather the youngest son of Charles Scott I, the itinerant Methodist minister.

 

Charles Scott I was not a brother of the Francis Scott who married Elizabeth Hunter.  The possibility of their being cousins has not been ruled out, but no proof of this relationship has been found.  Orion C. Scott, in his 1917 book entitled The Scotch-Irish and Charles Scott’s Descendants and Related Families writes of brothers Robert Scott (b. 1750) and Charles Scott (b. 1751) who emigrated from County Donegal, Ireland in 1790 with their wives and sons Francis (b. 1781) and Charles (b. 1786), respectively. These brothers settled in Cross Creek (now Jefferson) Township, Washington Co., Pa. Charles II (b. 1786) eventually moved to Guernsey Co., Ohio and fathered the large family that Mary Scott writes of in her reunion essay.

 

Raymond Bell, in his book List of Inhabitants in Washington County, Pennsylvania 1800 or Before registers three Scotts in Cross Creek Twp.:  Robert, Charles and Francis.  These are the immigrants of Orion Scott’s book, Francis (son of Robert) being sufficiently matured at age 19 to possess his own property. Charles II was a mere 14.

 

Writing in 1893 for a book entitled Recollections of Fifty Years in the Ministry ultimately published in 1898, John Scott, D.D. tells of a sister Susan and brother Francis of the Robert & Charles Scott recorded by Orion Scott.  Susan (Scott) Scott, and her husband, James Scott, were the grandparents of author Rev. John Scott.  They emigrated in 1819 from County Donegal with their son John, his wife Frances and four grandchildren, heading for Cross Creek Twp., Washington Co., Pa. to be near her brothers already established there. Also accompanying Susan & James was Susan’s brother, Francis Scott & family.  This Francis Scott died en route to the new world. Susan & James Scott, in addition to son John, had a son named Francis who probably had preceded them to this country.  This Francis was a stone mason in Washington Co., Pa.

 

There was a Francis Scott who apparently arrived safely in Fayette Co., Pa., but died during the early 1790s.  His widow, Ann Scott,  purchased 50 acres & 42 perches of land adjoining property owned by the above Robert & Charles Scott in Cross Creek Twp., Washington Co., Pa. in 1794.[2]  She and her children (daughters Jean Scott Patterson, Elizabeth Scott Hanlin, Susanah Scott Scott, Eleanor Scott, Ann Scott, and son John Scott) and their spouses sold this land on 5 Apr. 1814 to Ann’s second husband Charles Lesley.

 

There are still other Francis Scotts who have been thought to be the one who married Elizabeth Hunter, but they settled mostly in Cross Creek Twp., Jefferson Co., Ohio (figure 3).

 

1.      FRANCIS SCOTT

 

FRANCIS SCOTT, born 1760-1765, probably in Northern Ireland, married ELIZABETH HUNTER before emigrating.  Elizabeth was born ca. 1774, probably in Scotland.

 

We know of no siblings of Francis Scott, nor do we know the parentage of either this Francis Scott or his wife Elizabeth.  From census, we can deduce that Francis Scott was born between 1760 and 1765 and his wife Elizabeth, about 1774.

 

Fortunately, Mary Scott in 1908 recorded the children of this couple and many of their grandchildren.  That reunion essay appears to be the only extant article devoted to the larger Francis Scott family.  Without it, we researchers would be without direction.  With it, we can peruse censuses, tax rolls, marriage records, deeds and wills to ferret out something of the lives of our Scott ancestors.  We invite comments from our readers.

 

Mary Scott tells of Francis and Elizabeth (Hunter) Scott settling in Holliday’s Cove, Va. (now W. Va.)  on Yellow Creek near the Pennsylvania border about 1788.  Holliday’s Cove is neither on Yellow Creek, which is located in Jefferson Co., Ohio, nor on the Pennsylvania border (figures 2 & 3). Holliday’s Cove is near the Ohio River on the western border of Brooke Co., Va. in what is now Hancock Co., W.Va. The 1790 census for Virginia has been lost, making documentation of the Scott’s residence in that state at that time impossible.

 

Tax rolls show a Francis Scott in Hopewell Twp., Washington Co., from 1799 to 1802 (with 250 acres of land); in Hanover Twp. from 1803 to 1812 (with 140 – 192 acres of land); and then back in Hopewell Twp. from 1815 to 1820 (with one house & lot). Which Francis Scott(s) remains unverifiable.

 

A Francis Scott appeared in the 1800 & 1810 censuses for Hanover Twp., Washington Co, Pa.  Note that most of Francis’ children stated in later censuses that they were born in Pennsylvania.

 

1800 census for Hanover Twp. Washington Co., Pa. (p. 756) - Francis Scott, head:

                                                                                                                                         

2 males <10

[sons John & Robert]

b. 1790-1800

1 male 26-45

[Francis]

b. 1755-1774

2 females <10

[daughters Margaret & Madge]

b. 1790-1800

1 female 26-45

[wife Elizabeth]

b. 1755-1774

 

The rationale for the above placement of children is this:  Mary Scott said John was the eldest child and implied that Robert was second.  That accounts for the two males under 10. It is likely that both John & Robert were born in Virginia. As for the two daughters, we place Margaret & Madge in this census as neither of them was married in Ohio; therefore probably married in Pa. and thus the older two daughters.  It should be noted that Margaret’s husband, William, was born in 1795 in Pa.

 

Note should be made of the fact that Raymond Bell, in his List of Inhabitants in Washington County, Pennsylvania 1800 or Before did not mention a Francis Scott in Hanover Twp. The list was theoretically compiled from census data, so this looks like an omission on Bell’s part.

 

1810 census for Hanover Twp., Washington Co., Pa. (p. 45) -  Francis Scott, head:

 

1 male <10

[son William]   

b. 1800-1810

2 males 10-16 

[sons John & Robert]

b. 1794-1800

1 male >45

[Francis]          

b. <1765

3 females <10  

Elizabeth & Jane (?) + son Francis]

b. 1800-1810

2 females 10-16

[daughters Margaret & Madge]

b. 1794-1800

1 female 26-45

[wife Elizabeth]

b. 1755-1774

 

                                                                             

This census narrows the birth range of the first four Scott children to 1794-1800.  It looks like John was born about 1794. One may wonder why John was so long in coming – Francis & Elizabeth were already married when they emigrated in 1788.  Mary Scott says that two children of this couple died in infancy.  At least one may have been born before John.  See 1820 census comments.

 

William was born about 1801, per the 1850 census. According to the Hammond family history, Elizabeth (Scott) Hammond was born Aug. 11, 1804. Jane’s son, James Scott Davis, was born in 1828.  If we assume that Jane was 18-20 when her son was born, then she was born 1808-1810.  The census actually should have listed two males and two females under ten rather than 1 male and 3 females.  Son Francis, born 1802-1805, had a name that could be mistaken for female.

 

By 1820, Francis Scott was in Brooke Co., Va.  (p. 95) as head of household:

 

3 males <10

[sons Charles, James & ?]

b. 1810-1820

1 male 10-16   

[son Francis]   

b. 1800-1810

1 male >45      

[Francis]

b. <1775

1 female <10

[daughter Mary]

b. 1810-1820

2 females 10-16

[daughters Elizabeth & Jane]

b. 1800-1810

1 female 16-26

[daughter Madge]

b. 1794-1800

1 female 26-45

[wife Elizabeth]

b. 1775-1794

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

Two persons were engaged in agriculture.

 

Sons Charles & James were born ~ 1815 & 1816. The third son under ten cannot be accounted for except to speculate that he was one of the infants who died, and just happened to be alive when the census was taken.

 

By 1820 John, Robert & William were on their own. Also assume that Margaret had married William Scott by 1820. (First child was born 1822).

 

To carry the Francis Scott family census records to Ohio, we have a Francis Scott in Adams Twp., Guernsey Co., Ohio in 1830.  This family appears to be the same one as in the above censuses. Later censuses show that most, if not all, of Francis & Elizabeth (Hunter) Scott’s adult children settled in Guernsey Co.

 

  1830 census for Adams Twp., Guernsey Co., Ohio (p. 454) – Francis Scott, head:

 

1 male  5-10

[grandson James Scott Davis ? ]

b. 1820-1825

1 male  10-15

[son James]

b. 1815-1820

1 male  15-20  

[son Charles]   

b. 1810-1815

1 male  20-30

[son-in-law James Davis?]       

b. 1800-1810

1 male 60-70

[Francis]          

b. 1760-1770

1 female 10-15

[daughter Susan]          

b. 1815-1820

1 female 15-20

[daughter Mary]          

b. 1810-1815

1 female 20-30

[daughter Jane ?]

b. 1800-1810

1 female 50-60

[Elizabeth]       

b. 1770-1780

 

                 

Because there was no James Davis in the Guernsey Co. census for 1830, and knowing that James & Jane (Scott) Davis’ son James Scott Davis was born in 1828 in Ohio (see 1850 census for Betsy Scott), we can conjecture that this family was living with Jane’s parents in 1830.  The young boy was actually only two years old, however.

 

It is likely that Jane’s brother Francis was on his own at this time, for he would have been 25-28 years old.  We know that Francis Scott, Jr. bought property in 1833, three years before his marriage.

 

 A second scenario for this census would have Nancy Scott, born 1821, mistaken for a male.  She would have been 9 years old and qualified for the 5-10 age category.  One must question why Nancy did not appear in this census as a female 5-10. If this were the case, we would assume that Francis, Jr. was still living at home, but we have no female to slot into the 20-30 age range if we rule out daughter Jane.

 

1840 census for Cambridge Twp., Guernsey Co., Ohio (p. 373) - Francis Scott, head:

 

1 male 70-80

[Francis]

b. 1760-1770

1 female 15-20

[daughter Nancy]

b. 1820-1825

1 female 20-30

[daughter Susan]

b. 1810-1820

1 female 50-60

[Elizabeth]

b. 1780-1790

                                                                                                     

Nancy was born 1821; Susan on Oct. 14, 1820. (She supposedly just missed the 1820 census.)  Susan was married in 1841, so she would still be living at home in1840. Note that Elizabeth’s age is a decade too young – a census taker’s error?

 

According to Mary Scott, Francis died in 1845. No will has been found. As to his occupation, Mary wrote that he was a “dealer in horses, buying them and driving them across the mountains for sale.”  She goes on to say that he was always ready to buy, sell or trade a horse. A friend nick-named him “Jockey” and he went by that name from that day on.

 

Elizabeth (Hunter) Scott was known as Betsy.  She lived another ten years beyond Francis and was found in the 1850 U.S. census for Guernsey Co., Ohio, back in Adams Twp (p. 387):

-   Betsy Scott, 16, born Ireland, attended school during the year

-   James Davis, 22, single, born Ohio

-   Nancy Scott, 30, born Pa.

 

It appears that James or Nancy gave this census information which was incorrectly interpreted. Had Betsy been listed as the probable age of 76, instead of 16, her birth year would have been calculated at 1774, which is consistent with prior censuses.  The census taker, hearing 16, assumed that Betsy was attending school.  But would a 16-year-old be head of a household which contained both a 22-year-old male and a 30-year-old female?  It is so unlikely that we must assume that Betsy was 76 and happened to be away from home at the time the census was taken.

 

This census taker neglected to record the occupations of the various members of the household. And Mary Scott contends that Elizabeth (Betsy) Scott was born in Scotland, not Ireland. Note, however, that son Francis in the 1880 census declared that both his parents were born in Ireland. Perhaps Nancy Scott had the same impression.

 

A look at the census data for son Francis Scott, Jr. for 1850 will reveal several errors on the part of the census taker there.  Since both Betsy & Francis, Jr. were living in Adams Twp., their households were undoubtedly queried by the same census taker.

 

Mary Scott reported that Francis & Elizabeth Scott were buried – he in 1845 and she ten years later - in the old Turner Ave. Cemetery in Cambridge, Ohio but no official records to that effect have been uncovered.  A walk through the cemetery revealed no Francis Scott stone, and the cemetery list of burials did not include Francis & Elizabeth.

 

Mary Scott wrote that Francis & Elizabeth (Hunter) Scott had fifteen children, thirteen of whom lived to adulthood.  She names John as the eldest and Nancy as the youngest, but gives no birth dates.  From Hammond and Boyd family records, we have specific day and month data for daughters Elizabeth and Susan.  Otherwise approximate birth dates derived from census data are the basis for the ordering of the children of Francis & Elizabeth.

 

Thirteen of the children of Francis & Elizabeth (Hunter) Scott were:[3]

 

i.         JOHN SCOTT (See ¶ 2. below.)

 

ii.       ROBERT SCOTT, born ca. 1795/6 in Brooke Co., Va., married [ -?- ].

 

Little is known about Robert Scott, who was listed by reunion essayist Mary Scott as the second child of Francis & Elizabeth (Hunter) Scott.  He was probably born 1795/6 in Brooke Co., Va. A Robert Scott was married there on Mar. 4, 1823 to Elizabeth Edie but no specific tie-in to the son of Francis & Elizabeth Scott has been made.  

 

Mary Scott reported that Robert and his wife had no children.

 

iii.      MARGARET SCOTT, born ca. 1797/8 in Pa., married WILLIAM SCOTT, died before 1840.  William was born ca. 1795 in Pa., died 28 Aug. 1877 in Knox Twp., Guernsey Co., Ohio.

 

In the 1800 census for Hanover Twp., Washington Co., Pa,. Francis Scott was said to have two sons and two daughters.  Margaret is presumed to be one of those daughters for the following reasons: (1) she was not married in Ohio; (2) her husband was born in 1795; (3) her first child was born in 1822.  Although these are weak arguments, they are superior to those for any of Francis’ other daughters.  Unfortunately, Margaret died before the 1850 census which would have given a reading of her age, and consequently her birth date. On the basis of our flimsy evidence, we give Margaret’s birth year as 1797/8 and her birth place as Pa.

 

In the 1820 census for Cross Creek Twp., Washington Co., Pa., (p. 217), a William Scott was head of the following household:

 

1 male 26-45

William

1 female 16-26

Margaret

 

On 5 May 1829 William Scott purchased from the Zanesville, Ohio Land Office, 80 acres of land in the east one-half of the southeast quarter of Section 17, Twp 3, Range 4 located in Knox Twp., Guernsey Co.  He paid $100. [4]  He received a patent for this land on 1 Dec. 1829[5] (figures 4 & 5). William Scott was listed as the owner of 80 acres in Section 17 of Knox Twp. in 1840.[6]

 

In the 1840 census for Knox Twp., Guernsey Co., Ohio (p. 470), William Scott was head of the following household:

 

2 males 5-10

[sons James & William]

1 male 10-15

[son Charles]

1 male 15-20

[son Francis]

1 male 40-50

[William]

1 female 15-20

[daughter Mary]

 

3 were engaged in agriculture.  Note that William’s first wife, Margaret (Scott) Scott, had died.

 

In the 1850 census for Knox Twp., Guernsey Co., Ohio (p. 485) William Scott was head of the following household:

-         William Scott, 55, male, farmer, $600 value of real estate, born Pa.

-         Mary Scott, 24, female, born Ohio

-         Charles Scott, 23, male, farmer, born Ohio

-         William Scott, 21, male, farmer, born Ohio

-         James Scott, 20, male farmer, born Ohio.

 

William married his young neighbor, Mary Elizabeth McConkey, 7 July 1857 in Guernsey Co. In the 1860 census for Knox Twp., Guernsey Co., Ohio (p. 215), William was head of the following household, dwelling #283:

-         William Scott, 65, male, farmer, $1,500 value of real estate, $280 value of personal

property, born Pa.

-         Mary E. Scott, 21, female, born Ohio.

 

By the time of the 1870 census for Knox Twp. (p. 460), two of the three children William and Mary were to have had been born.  William was head of the following household (dwelling #124):

-         William Scott, 75, male, $3,000 value of real estate, $800 value of personal property, born

 Pa., parents foreign born

-         Mary Scott, 30, female, keeps house, born Ohio

-         Johnston Scott, 7, male, born Ohio

-         Sarah A. Scott, 4 female, born Ohio.

 

The five children of William & Margaret (Scott) Scott were all born in Ohio:

 

a.       FRANCIS (FRANK) SCOTT, born ca. 1822, married SARAH [ -?- ], died 1877-

1908.  In the 1850 census for Knox Twp., Guernsey Co., Ohio (p. 484), Frances Scott was head of the following household:

-         Frances Scott, 28, male, farmer, born Ohio

-         Sarah Scott, 36, female, born Ohio.

 

b.      MARY (POLLY) SCOTT, born ca. 1826, married JAMES WILSON, died before

1908.

 

CHARLES SCOTT, born 1827, married  PERMELIA ATWOOD 7 June 1855 in Guernsey Co., OH, died before 1877.  Permelia was born ca. 1843 in Ohio.  In the 1860 census for Knox Twp., Guernsey Co., dwelling  #284 (p. 215), Charles was head of the following household:

 

-         Charles Scott, 34, male

-         Lamelia Scott, 24, female

-         Annie Scott, 4, female

-         Amanda Scott, 2, female.

Note that this dwelling was adjacent to that of Charles’ father.

 

In the 1870 census for Know Twp., Guernsey Co., dwelling #125 (p. 460), Charles was head of the following household:

-         Charles Scott, 46, male, farmer born Ohio

-         Pamela Scott, 27, female, keeps house, born Ohio

-         Mary A. Scott, 13, female, house work, born Ohio

-         Amanda Scott, 10, female, school, born Ohio

-         Elizabeth Scott, 9, female, born Ohio

-         Sarah Scott, 6, female, born Ohio

-         Josie (Jessie) Scott, 3, female, born Ohio.

Note here again their dwelling was adjacent to that of Charles’ father.

 

By the time of the 1880 census the family had removed to Missouri.  Hamon (Sarah) and Jessie were living with their sister Mary Ann and her family in Pettis Co.  Their mother was living close by in Benton Co. with daughters Amanda and Elizabeth.

 

d.      WILLIAM SCOTT, born ca. 1829, died before 1908.

 

e.       JAMES SCOTT, born ca. 1830, died 1877-1908.

 

 

iv.     MADGE SCOTT, born ca. 1800 in Pa., married JAMES SCOTT in Pa.

 

Madge Scott is assumed to be one of the daughters counted in the 1800 census in the household of Francis.  She was not married in Ohio.  Thus, she is presumed to have married in Pa. before her parents moved to Ohio. 

 

Madge Scott married James Scott, per Mary Scott’s reunion address. There is a James Scott in both the 1830 and 1840 censuses for Adams Twp., Guernsey Co., Ohio in which the parents’ ages seem reasonable. By 1850, this family had left Adams Twp.

 

1830, p. 453:

1 male <5

 

1 male 5-10

 

1 male 20-30

[hired farm hand ?]

1 male 30-40   

[James ?]

2 females <5

 

1 female 10-15

[hired domestic ?]

1 female 30-40

[Madge ?]

 

1840, p. 464:

2 males 5-10

[sons John & William ?]

1 male 10-15

[son Frank ?]

 

1 male 15-20

[son Charles ?]

 

1 male 40-50

[James ?]

 

2 females <5

[daughters Mary & Nancy ?]

 

1 female 5-10

[daughter Julia ?]

 

2 females 10-15

[daughter Elizabeth & domestic ?]

 

1 female 30-40

[Madge]

 

 

                                                                                   

Madge was listed as between the ages of 30 & 40 in both censuses.  Thus, we conclude that she was just 30 in the first census and just 40 in the second, making her birth date 1800.

 

Note that the male 20-30 and the female 10-15 in 1830 were not with the family in 1840.  Both may have been employed by the Scotts – the male as a farmhand and the girl as a domestic.  Madge, born ca. 1800, would not have been old enough to have a son 20-30 in 1830.  By 1840, son Charles could well have been helping his dad on the farm, so that an employed hand was no longer necessary.  With four children under ten, however, it could be argued that Madge needed some household help, thus accounting for one of the older girls in the 1840 census.  Mary Scott declared that Madge was the mother of eight children, and nine are listed in the 1840 census.  The extra female in the 1840 census must be an employee, if this census is applicable to the daughter of Francis Scott.

 

The known children of James & Madge (Scott) Scott were all dead by 1908:

 

a.       CHARLES SCOTT.

 

b.      FRANK SCOTT.

 

c.       ELIZA SCOTT married [ -?- ] JOHNSON.

 

d.      JULIA SCOTT married [ -?- ] JACKSON.

 

e.       JOHN SCOTT.

 

f.        WILLIAM SCOTT.

 

g.       MARY SCOTT.

 

h.       NANCY SCOTT.

 

v.       WILLIAM SCOTT, born ca. 1801 in Washington Co., Pa., married NANCY BRITTON in Washington Co. Nancy was born ca. 1800 in Pa., daughter of James Britton. Both William and Nancy probably died before 1880.

 

William & Nancy Scott moved to Guernsey Co., Ohio after their marriage and later lived in Illinois for 17 years. They then returned to Guernsey Co. They were said to have passed their last days with a son-in-law in Knox Twp.[7] 

 

William Scott appeared in the 1850 census for Cambridge Twp., Guernsey Co., Ohio (p. 285) as head of the following household:

-         William Scott, 50, male, farmer, born Pa.

-         Nancy Scott, 50, female, born Pa.

-         Charles Scott, 24, male, farmer, born Ohio

-         John Scott, 22, male, farmer, born Ohio

-         Margaret Scott, 21, female, born Ohio

-         Francis Scott, 20, male, farmer, born Ohio

-         Robert Scott, 18, male, farmer, born Ohio

-         James Scott, 16, male, farmer, born Ohio

-         Maria Scott, 13, female, born Ohio

-         Nancy Scott, 10, female, born Ohio

-         Mary Scott, 7, female, born Ohio.

 

William & Nancy (Britton) Scott had nine children:

 

  1. CHARLES H. SCOTT, born ca. 1826 in Ohio, married CATHARINE BROWN, died 1882-1908. Catharine was born ca. 1833 in Ohio, the daughter of Samuel & Mary Brown.  She also died 1882-1908.

 

Before he married, Charles joined a group of men driving a large number of livestock across the plains to California over a 2-year period.[8]  Charles & Catharine lived first in Cambridge, Ohio and then moved to Knox Twp.

 

In the 1880 census for Knox Twp., Guernsey Co., Ohio (p. 116) Charles was head of the following household:

-         Charles Scott, male, 55, married, born Ohio, parents born Pa.

-         Catharine Scott, female, 47, married, born Ohio, father born Ireland, mother born

      Va.

-         Mary Scott, female, 21, daughter, single, born Ohio, parents born Ohio

-         Robert Scott, male, 17, son, born Ohio, parents born Ohio

-         Hannah Scott, female, 14, daughter, born Ohio, parents born Ohio

-         Ester Scott, female, 12, daughter, born Ohio, parents born Ohio

-         Alice Scott, female, 9, daughter, born Ohio, parents born Ohio

-         Charles J. Scott, male, 5, son, born Ohio, parents born Ohio.

 

Charles & Catharine (Brown) Scott had ten children, nine of whom were living in 1882.[9] All were born in Ohio:

 

o        SAMUEL SCOTT, born ca. 1856, married ELLA PORTER.  A Samuel Scott was head of the following household in the 1880 census for Adams Twp., Guernsey

Co., Ohio (p. 12):

-         Samuel Scott, male, 24, farmer, born Ohio, parents born Ohio.

-         Ellen B. Scott, female, 20, wife, keeps house, born Ohio, parents born Ohio.

o        CHARLES E. SCOTT, born 28 Oct. 1874.[10]

 

b.      JOHN SCOTT, born ca. 1828 in Ohio, probably married MARY E. [-?- ] before 1862,

died before 1908.

      in Guernsey Co., Ohio.[13] Nancy was born ca. 1803, died 1870-1880.

 

In the 1850 census Francis gave his age as 45; in 1860 as 56; in 1880 as 78.  Thus we are uncertain as to whether Francis or his sister Elizabeth, for whom we have a specific day, month, and year of birth, came into the Francis & Elizabeth (Hunter) Scott family first.

 

Francis Scott, Jr., in partnership with his brother-in-law John Hammond, bought on 19 Mar. 1833, 80 acres of land in the north half of the northeast quarter of S12/T2/R4, which lies in Adams Twp., Guernsey Co., Ohio (figure 6).   Scott & Hammond were tenants in common, not joint tenants. On 2 Apr. 1849 Francis & Nancy Scott sold their interest in this 80-acre tract to John Hammond for $315.  Nancy signed the deed with her mark.[14]

 

In the 1840 census for Adams Twp., Guernsey Co., Ohio (p. 465), Francis Scott was head of the following household:

 

1 male <5

[son James]

1 male 30-40

-         Rose Ann Scott, 26, female, helps mother, born Ohio.

-         Francis Scott, 24, male, works on farm, born Ohio.

 

By the 1880 census for Adams Twp., Guernsey Co. (p. 8C), both sons had left the family farm and wife Nancy had apparently died. Francis Scott was head of the following household:

-         Francis Scott, male, 78, farmer, born Pa., both parents born Ireland

-         Elizabeth Scott, female, 39, daughter, keeping house, born Ohio, both parents born Pa.

-         Rosanna Scott, female, 37, daughter, keeping house, born Ohio, both parents born Pa.

 

In brother-in-law John Hammond’s obituary of 1898, the statement was made that John’s deceased wife, Elizabeth (Scott) Hammond, had a brother still living at the age of 94.  That brother must have been Francis, Jr.

 

The four children of Francis & Nancy (Donnelly) Scott were undoubtedly born in Ohio:

 

a.       JAMES SCOTT, born 1835-1837, probably married MARY J. [ -?- ] in Feb. 1870.

 

Next door to his parents, James Scott was head of the following household in the 1870 census for Adams Twp. (p.365):

-         James Scott, 31, male, farm laborer, $500 value of personal property, born Ohio

c.       ROSE ANN (ROSEANNA) SCOTT, born 1839-1841, died before 1908.

 

d.      FRANCIS (FRANK) SCOTT, born May 1841, probably married NANCY [ -?- ]

 before 1875. Nancy was born Dec. 1844 in Ohio.

vii.    ELIZABETH SCOTT, born 11 Aug. 1804 in Washington Co., Pa., married JOHN MILLER HAMMOND 29 Nov. 1827 in Guernsey Co., Ohio,[16] died 26 June 1883 in Adams Twp., Guernsey Co., Ohio. John was born 16 Sep. 1805 near Hickory, Washington Co., Pa, son of William & Mary (Weir) Hammond, died 4 Apr. 1898 at the home of his son Alexander in Adams Twp., Guernsey Co.[17] John & Elizabeth were buried in Lebanon Cemetery, Cambridge, Ohio.[18]

 

John Hammond came to Guernsey Co. with his parents in 1825.  They settled first in what is now Knox Twp., and later moved to Adams Twp.

 

On 19 Mar. 1833, John Hammond and his brother-in-law, Francis Scott, purchased 80 acres in the north half of the northeast quarter of S12/T2/R4. (Figure 6 - Certificate #5695)  Francis Scott sold his interest in the property to John Hammond on 2 Apr. 1849.  John Hammond held this property to his death in 1898.

 

In his early life, John Hammond was a Jackson Democrat and later, a Free Spoiler.  He was one of the first to espouse the cause of the Republican Party in Ohio.  For many years he was a Justice of the Peace and held the offices of Township Trustee, Treasurer and Clerk.[19] In 1839 John joined the United Presbyterian Church (then the Associate Church) of Cambridge, Ohio.  He served as deacon for many years, and in 1851, he was elected ruling elder.[20]

 

In the 1830 census for Knox Twp., Guernsey Co., Ohio (p. 473) John Hammond was head of the following household:

 

2 males <5

[sons James & Francis]

1 male 20-30   

[John]

1 female 20-30

[wife Elizabeth].

 

     

On the same page were William Hammond, age 70-80 (i.e., John’s father) and David Hammond, age 20-30 (John’s brother).

 

By 1840 the John Hammonds had moved to their new property in Adams Twp. 

 

In the 1850 census for Adams Twp., Guernsey Co., Ohio (p. 383) John Hammond was head of the following household:

-         John M. Hammond, 74, farmer, born Pa., parents born Pa.

-         Elizabeth Hammond, 74, wife, keeps house, born Pa., father born Germany (?), mother

 born Ireland (?).

 

On 10 Mar. 1885 John Hammond wrote his will, directing that his estate be divided equally among his children.  He appointed his son Robert executor.

 

The children of John & Elizabeth (Scott) Hammond were:[21]

 

a.       JAMES HAMMOND, born 22 Sep. 1828 in Knox Twp. Guernsey Co., Ohio, married MARGARET JANE MEHAFFEY 20 Dec. 1855,[22] died May 1904. Margaret Jane was born 21 July 1834 in Adams Twp., daughter of John Russell & Nancy (Murphy) Mehaffey.[23]

 

 James graduated from Muskingum College and then taught school for some time.  In 1851 he and his brother Francis went to California by the overland route.  On his return to Guernsey Co., James resumed his teaching career and also became a farmer.  During the Civil War he was Adjutant in Co. A of the 172nd Infantry.  In 1876 he became interested in the real estate and pension business in Olathe, Kans.

 

b.      FRANCIS EDMOND HAMMOND, born 26 Apr. 1830 in Knox Twp., Guernsey Co., Ohio, married MARGARET ELIZABETH (EVALINE ?) TINGLE 6 Nov. 1856,[24] died 4 Oct. 1886 in Washington, D.C., buried in Glenwood Cemetery, Washington.  Margaret was born 1847 in Cambridge, Guernsey Co., Ohio, died after 1886.

 

Francis attended Muskingum College for one term and then taught school in six different districts.  In 1851 he joined his brother James on a trip to California.  On his return to Guernsey Co., in 1854, Francis clerked in the Auditor’s office until 1860 when he was elected Auditor, serving three terms.  In 1873 he went to Washington, D.C. as a member of the Board of Audit and later served in the office of the First Comptroller of the Currency in the nation’s capitol.

 

Gene McLaughlin[25] is a descendant of Francis & Margaret Hammond’s daughter, KATE EDNA HAMMOND.  Kate was born 1872 in Cambridge, Ohio, married JOHN MILTON McLAUGHLIN 4 Dec. 1895 in Washington, D. C.  John Milton was born 22 May 1868 in Greencastle, Franklin Co., PA.  About 1890 he competitively qualified as a proof reader in the U. S. Government Printing Office in Washington, D. C.   The children of John Milton and Kate Edna were:

 

o        JOHN MILTON McLAUGHLIN, Jr., born 1900

 

o        FRANCIS E. McLAUGHLIN, born 1902

 

o        VIRGINIA MAE McLAUGHLIN, born 1912.

 

Francis & Margaret Hammond had eight other children.[26]

 

c.       WILLIAM B. HAMMOND, born 1 Dec. 1831 in Ohio, married (1) MARGARET M.

LITTLE 18 Mar. 1858,[27] married (2) ESTHER McCONNAHA, died 29 Jan. 1897.  William was a wagon and carriage maker in Bloomfield, Muskingum Co.  He enlisted for 100 days in Co. F, 160th Ohio Regiment, serving in Virginia.

 

d.      ELIZABETH HAMMOND, born 9 May 1833 in Adams Twp., married WILLIAM

McCLELLAND, died 19 Oct. 1889. A William McClelland died 1861, buried Old City Cemetery, Cambridge.[28]

 

e.       JOHN MILLER HAMMOND, Jr., born 28 Feb. 1835, married MARTHA

GUTHRIE 29 Mar. 1860,[29] died 1911.  He was a wagon and carriage maker in Otsego, Muskingum Co., Ohio. He served 100 days in Co. F, 160th Ohio Regiment in Virginia during the Civil War.  Charles Arthur Upton of Cambridge, Ohio, is a descendant.

 

f.        DAVID HAMMOND, born 6 Jan. 1837, married CASSANDRA BRITTON 1 Dec.1864 in Guernsey Co. Cassandra died before 1895.  David was a member of Co. B, 97th Ohio Infantry and served in Kentucky during the Civil War.  Owing to sickness he became almost blind but later recovered and joined the Ohio National Guard.  David and Cassandra moved to Guthrie Co., Iowa, where he became a farmer.

 

g.       ROBERT HAMMOND, born 19 Sep. 1838, married ELLA SIMONS, daughter of John W. Simons, 15 Nov. 1870 in Guernsey Co., died 30 Sep. 1907 at his home on South

8th St., Cambridge, Ohio after a year-long illness.  On 9 Aug. 1861 he enlisted in Co. A, 15th Ohio Infantry, being the first soldier to enlist at Mantua.  He lost his right leg at Shiloh

6/7 Apr. 1862 by the bursting of a shell.  After recovering from his disastrous army experience, Robert took a course at Zanesville Business College after which he read law with Col. John Ferguson and was admitted to the Bar in 1870. For six years, he was clerk of the county court, an elected position.  Twice he was elected Justice of the Peace. John was a member of the United Presbyterian Church and Ella joined the Baptist Church, both in Cambridge.[30] Robert & Ella Hammond had seven children.

 

  1. JOHNSTON HAMMOND, born 19 July 1840, married SUSANNAH (Susan) A. RANKIN 7 Mar. 1867 in Guernsey Co., died 18 Feb. 1888 in Cambridge, Ohio.  Susan was born 1841, died 1922.  Both Johnston and Susan are buried in Old City Cemetery, Cambridge.  Johnston served for 4 years & 4 months in Co. A, 15th Ohio Infantry and was wounded at the Battle of Stone River when a ball passed through his thigh.  He participated in the Atlanta campaign and was present at the Battle of Mission Ridge.  He received an honorable discharge 31 Dec. 1865.  Johnston wrote his will 12 Sep. 1887 in which he bequeathed to his wife all of his real and personal property except a piano which he left to his daughter Ella.[31] ELLA HAMMOND, apparently an only child, was born 1868, died 1936, buried in Old City Cemetery, Cambridge.[32]

 

i.         CHARLES HAMMOND, born 12 June 1842 in Adams Twp., married ISABELL W. McCLELLAND 31 Mar. 1870 in Muskingum Co., Ohio, died 16 Jan. 1910 at is home in Adams Twp. of Bright’s disease, buried in Northwood Cemetery, Cambridge.  Charles enlisted in Co. A, 15th Ohio Infantry in 1864 and served through the Atlanta campaign and in the Battle of Nashville.  Charles was a farmer.  He lived in Guernsey Co. all his life.  He was said to be a “staunch” member of the Untied Presbyterian Church of Cambridge. Charles & Isabell had six children, one of whom predeceased her father.

 

j.        MARY JANE HAMMOND, born 29 June 1844, married DAVID LORIMER MACKEY 31 Mar. 1870 in Adams Twp., Guernsey Co.[33]  David was born 15 Jan. 1840 in Adams Twp., died 9 May 1920 in Guernsey Co.  He was a son of Richard & Margaret L. (Duff) Mackey.

 

David & Mary Jane Mackey lived in Adams Twp. They had no children of their own, but took in several.[34]

 

k.      ALEXANDER HAMMOND, born 2 May 1846 in Adams Twp., married ANNA M.

JOHNSTON 6 Apr. 1871 in Guernsey Co. They had eight children, five of whom were living at the time of their grandfather’s death in 1898. Alexander worked at the old family homestead located four miles west of Cambridge.

 

viii.  JANE SCOTT, born ca. 1808-10 in Washington Co., Pa., married JAMES DAVIS, died as a young mother.

 

If we assume that Jane was 18-20 years old when her son, James Scott Davis, was born, then her birth date must be placed at about 1808-1810.  There is no record in the marriage books of Guernsey Co., Ohio of a Jane Scott marrying James Davis.

 

It was Mary Scott who said that Jane Scott married James Davis and that they had one son, who was left motherless at a young age.  After their daughter’s death, according to Mary Scott, Francis & Elizabeth (Hunter) Scott raised their grandson.  James Scott Davis, age 22, is listed in the household of Betsy Scott in Adams Twp., Guernsey Co. in the 1850 census (see ¶1. above). 

 

James Scott Davis was born in 1828.  According to the 1850 census, his birth place was Ohio.  However, there was no James Davis (the father) listed in the census index for Guernsey Co. in 1830.  Perhaps he and his family were living with Francis & Elizabeth in Adams Twp. then and the 20-30 year old male in Francis’ household was his son-in-law James Davis.  That would explain the 20-30 year old female who would then be wife Jane, daughter of Francis.  We know that son Francis, Jr. bought property in Adams Twp. three years prior to his 1836 marriage, so he may well have left the family homestead by 1830 when he would have been 25-28 years old. (See 1830 census data under Francis Scott, Sr.- ¶ 1. above).

 

Mary Scott reported that Jane “died leaving a little son without a mother’s care.” Mary Scott continues, “The little grandson James Scott Davis was taken in and brought up in the old home where he remained until after the death of his grandparents.”

 

By 1840 there was a James Davis family in Cambridge Twp., Guernsey Co. (p. 364) that could have been the family of Jane (Scott) Davis:

 

1 male 15-20

[son James Scott, actually age 12 ? ]

2 males  20-30

[James & ? ]

1 female 20-30

[Jane ? ]

 

It is interesting to note that Francis & Elizabeth Scott were living in Cambridge Twp. township in 1840.

 

James & Jane (Scott) Davis had one child:

 

a.       JAMES SCOTT DAVIS, born 1828, died before 1908.

 

ix.     MARY SCOTT, born ca. 1812-14, married JAMES ROSS in Guernsey Co., Ohio Dec. 10, 1835.[35] 

 

From 1830 census records for her father, Francis Scott, Sr.,  it appears that Mary was born about 1812-1814.  Mary Scott reported that Mary & James Ross had no children.

 

In the 1840 census for Adams Twp. (p. 464), James Ross was head of the following household:

 

1 male 30-40

[James]

1 female 20-30

[Mary]

 

x.       CHARLES SCOTT, born ca. 1815 in Washington Co., Pa., married DIANA PARKINSON in Guernsey Co. 28 Jan. 1836. [36] Diana was born ca. 1815 in Ohio.

 

In the 1850 census for Cambridge Twp., Guernsey Co., Ohio (p. 296) Charles Scott was head of the following household:

-         Charles Scott, 35, male, farmer, born Pa.

-         Diana Scott, 35, female, born Ohio

-         Anne Scott, 15, female, born Ohio

-         George Scott, 10, male born Ohio

-         Barbary Scott, 7 female, born Ohio

-         Frances [Francis ?] Scott, 6 male, born Ohio

-         Margaret L. Scott, 5, female, born Ohio

-         Margery Scott, 3, female, born Ohio.

 

There is a serious question as to whether this is the right Charles Scott family.  Mary Scott declared in 1908 that Charles & Diana had but four children.  And, even though there is a Francis Scott and a Margaret Scott in the group of children, the other names are not ones that regularly recur in the grandchildren of Francis & Elizabeth Scott.

 

If the above census is correct for the son of Francis & Elizabeth Scott, then Charles’ children were:

 

a.       ANNE SCOTT, born ca. 1836.

 

b.      GEORGE SCOTT, born ca. 1840.

 

c.       BARBARY SCOTT, born ca. 1843.

 

d.      FRANCES [FRANCIS ?] SCOTT, (male)  born ca. 1844.

 

e.       MARGARET L. SCOTT, born ca. 1845.

 

f.        MARGERY SCOTT, born ca. 1847.

 

 

xi.     JAMES SCOTT, born ca. 1816 in Washington Co., Pa., married ELIZA CLIPPINGER  7 June 1838 in Guernsey Co.[37]  Eliza was born ca. 1820, the daughter of George Clippinger.  Eliza was a widow when she died in Feb. 1899.

 

In the 1850 census for Centre Twp., Guernsey Co., Ohio (p. 176) James Scott was head of the following household:

-         James Scott, 34, male, farmer, born Pa.

-         Elizabeth, 30, female, born Ohio [Pa. ?]

The couple lived next door to Eliza’s brother Israel Clippinger and his family.

 

In the 1860 census for Centre Twp. (p. 122) James Scott was head of the following household:

-         James Scott, 43, male, farmer, $140 value of real estate, $50 value of personal property,

born Pa.

-         Eliza Scott, 41, female, born Pa.

 

In the 1870 census for Centre Twp. (p. 424), James Scott was head of the following household:

-         James Scott, 57, male, farmer, $1,100 value of real estate, $400 value of personal

property, born Pa., parents foreign born, U.S. citizen.

-         Eliza Scott, 54, female, keeping house, born Pa.

 

James & Eliza (Clippinger) Scott had no children.  James predeceased Eliza, who wrote her will 18 July 1889, leaving her entire estate to Clippinger nieces and nephews.

 

Her will was filed 18 Mar. 1899 (figure 7).  William Eagleton filed Application to Probate on the same day (figure 8).  He filed Application for Letters Testamentary 1 Apr. 1899  (figure 9).

 

xii.    SUSAN SCOTT, born 14 Oct. 1820.  According to the various censuses she was born in Pennsylvania, but Francis & Elizabeth Scott had moved to Brooke Co., Va. (now W. Va.) by the time of the 1820 census.  Susan married JOHN BOYD in Guernsey Co., Ohio 6 Mar. 1841;[38] she died 1895.  John was born 10 Feb. 1818 in Co. Antrim, Ireland, son of James & Jane (Crawford) Boyd.  John died in 1898.[39]

 

John emigrated with his parents in Aug. 1832, settling in Center Twp., Guernsey Co. On 12 Mar. 1845 John and Susan Boyd sold to Robert Scott for $150 the southwest quarter of the southeast quarter of S16/T4/R3 of the U.S. Military District (i.e., in Wheeling Twp., Guernsey Co.). Susan Boyd signed the deed with her mark.  It is interesting to note that this same 40-acre tract of land was sold by a Robert & Catharine Scott on 5 Jan. 1848 to William Fram for $120.  Robert Scott signed the deed with his mark.[40]

 

In the 1850 census for Center Twp., Guernsey Co., Ohio (p. 168) John Boyd was head of the following household:

-         John Boyd, 32, male, farmer, $1,000 value of real estate, born Ireland

-         Susan Boyd, 26, female, born Pa.

-         James Boyd, 8, male, born Ohio

John Boyd was a Justice of the Peace for 21 years, township treasurer, trustee, etc.  He owned 432 acres of well-improved land.[41]

 

John Boyd wrote his will on 17 Aug. 1898.[42]  To his eldest sons, James & Frank, share and share alike, he bequeathed the 99-acre farm known as the Thomas McConn (?) farm which was part of Section 7 in Centre Twp. near “Wolf Den.”  To daughters Nancy Wyrick & Margaret Erskine, he bequeathed lot #26 in Centre Twp. where John Boyd then resided.  These sisters were instructed to make the following payments:  To sister Susie Garber, $150 in each of the two years following John Boyd’s death; to each of the children of sister Sarah M. Law, $100 as they become of age but also reserving to John Boyd’s estate to be disposed of by his executors the coal in and underlying the above real estate.  To his daughter, Susie Garber, John left an undivided one-half of lot #25 (100 acres) in Centre Twp. known as the Zebider Kindle Farm.  To his son John Boyd, he left all of lot #27 in Centre Twp., situated to the south of the farm on which the senior John Boyd lived, about 50 acres. To his nephew William Clark Boyd, $150. 

 

John bequeathed all his household goods to his daughters.  He ordered his executors to sell a 52.64 tract in Centre Twp. which was a part of lots #408 & #204 in Carson’s Addition to Cambridge City and all his coal land.  The proceeds from the sale of coal lands were to go to James, Frank, Samuel, and John Boyd, Margaret Erskine, Susie Garber, Nancy Wyrick, and Sarah Law.  Executors were John Boyd and Margaret Erskine.

 

The children of John & Susan (Scott) Boyd were all born in Ohio:[43]

 

a.       JAMES S. BOYD, born  May 1843, married MARY E. [ -?- ], ca. 1868, died before

1908. Mary was born Sep. 1843.

 

In the 1870 census for Centre Twp., Guernsey Co., Ohio, James Boyd and his family were living next door to his parents:

-         James Boyd, head, 27, male, farmer, born Ohio, U.S. citizen

-         Mary E. Boyd, 24, female, keeping house, born Ohio

-         Laura F. Boyd, 1, female, at home, born Ohio

-         James E. Boyd, 5/12, male, at home, born Ohio.

 

In the 1900 census for Centre Twp., James Boyd was head of the following household:

-         James Boyd, head, male, born May 1843, 57, male, married 32 years, born Ohio, father born Ireland, mother born Pa., farmer, zero months unemployed, owns farm free of mortgage

-         Mary Boyd, wife, female, born Sep. 1843, 56, married 32 years, mother of five children, five living, born Ohio, father born Ireland, mother born Ohio

-         Charles S. Boyd, son, male, born Dec. 1873, 26, single, born Ohio, parents born Ohio, school teacher

-         Minnie Boyd, daughter, female, born Mar. 1876, 24, single, born Ohio, parents born Ohio

-         Andrew Boyd, son, male, born Feb. 1878, 22, single, born Ohio, parents born Ohio, student

-         Mary S. Boyd, daughter, female, born June 1880, 19, single, born Ohio, parents born Ohio, at school

-         Foster J. Boyd, son, male, born June 1883, 16, single, born Ohio, parents born Ohio, at school.

All could read, write and speak English.  Note that Mary Boyd said in the 1900 census that she had given birth to five children, all of whom were living. The 1900 census lists five children, but what about Laura and James E. Boyd, who were listed with James & Mary in 1870?  They were 31 and 30 years old, respectively, and had undoubtedly left the family farm. They should have been included in Mary’s successful pregnancies, however.

 

James Boyd, son of John Boyd, was living in Washington, Ohio in 1898.  Perhaps he was not the James Boyd of the above 1900 census.

 

b.      FRANCIS (FRANK) S. BOYD, born ca. 1844, died before 1908. He was living in

      Springfield, Ill. in 1898.

 

c.       MARGARET BOYD, born ca. 1846, married ROBERT J. ERSKINE

       28 May 1867,[44] died before 1908. Margaret was living in Cambridge, Ohio in 1898.

 

d.      NANCY J. BOYD, born ca. 1848, married [ -?- ] WYRICK, died before 1908.

 

e.       SAMUEL N. (A. ?) BOYD, born ca. 1852, died after 1908. He was living in

      Washington, Ohio in 1898.

 

f.        SUSAN E. BOYD, born ca. 1854, married [ -?- ] GARBER, died before 1908.

      Susan was living in Taylorsville, Ill. in 1898.

 

g.       SARAH ANN BOYD, born ca. 1857, married [ -?- ] LAW.

 

h.       JOHN A. BOYD, Jr., born May 1860, died after 1908.  He lived in Craig, Ohio in

      1898.

 

i.         ELIZA JANE BOYD, born after 1860, died before 1882.

 

j.        JOSEPHINE BOYD, born after 1860, died before 1882.

 

xiii.  NANCY SCOTT, born ca. 1821, married JOSEPH CLIPPINGER 15 June 1853 in Guernsey Co., Ohio.[45]

 

According to the census of 1850, Nancy Scott was born in Pennsylvania. In her reunion address of 1908, Mary Scott named Nancy as the youngest of Francis & Elizabeth (Hunter) Scott’s children.

 

Joseph Clippinger was a widower with six children. He appeared in the 1850 census for Centre Twp., Guernsey Co. (p. 174) with his children aged 2 to 18 and no wife. Joseph was a brother-in-law of Nancy’s brother James, who married Eliza Clippinger.

 

In the 1850 census for Adams Twp., Guernsey Co., Ohio (p. 387), Nancy Scott, age 30, born Pa., appears in the household of her widowed mother, Betsy Scott. (See ¶ 1. above.)

 

In the 1870 census for Centre Twp. (p. 426B), Joseph Clippinger was head of the following household:

-         Joseph Clippinger, 62, male, farm laborer, $2,000 value of real estate, $300 value of personal, born Pa., U.S. citizen

-         Nancy Clippinger, 50, female, keeping house.

 

Joseph & Nancy (Scott) Clippinger had no children.

 

2.   JOHN SCOTT

 

JOHN SCOTT, born ca. 1794 in Va., married MARIA McCLEARY ca. 1816/17.  Maria was born 2 July 1800 in Va., died 16 Oct. 1822 in Brooke Co. She was the daughter of Thomas & Mary (Linn) McCleary.

 

We have two documents naming John Scott as the father of Mary (Scott) Schreiber & Eliza Jane (Scott) Canaday:

§         Canaday family Bible (figure 10)  [Note:  This page was written by hand in the 1800s and is

difficult to read on screen.  When printed with maximum ink, however, it is quite legible.]

§         Mary Scott’s address written for the1908 Hammond/Scott family reunion (figures 1 & 1a)

 

The Canaday Bible also names Maria E. (McCleary) Scott as the mother of these two girls and Thomas & Mary (Linn) McCleary as their maternal grandparents, married Dec. 18, 1792 in Frederick Co., Va., near Winchester. Maria was undoubtedly born in Frederick Co., Va., near Winchester, for her father appeared on that county’s tax roll of 1800.  Thomas McCleary moved his family to Brooke Co. in what is now the northern West Virginia panhandle in 1806. (Note that Frederick Co. remained with the state of Virginia when the new West Virginia was formed in 1863 and that Maria’s birth place is properly stated as Va.)

 

The 1908 reunion address names Francis & Elizabeth (Hunter) Scott as the parents of John Scott, their eldest child.

 

Note that elder daughter Mary Scott was named for her maternal grandmother, Mary Linn McCleary, and younger daughter Eliza for her paternal grandmother, Elizabeth Hunter Scott.

 

To pinpoint the place and date of John Scott’s birth:

1.      Mary Scott claims that Francis & Elizabeth Scott settled in Holliday’s Cove, Va. in 1788.

2.      In the 1880 censuses for Sharon Twp., Noble Co., and Spencer Twp., Guernsey Co., Ohio, respectively, Mary Schreiber and Eliza Jane Canaday both stated that their father was born in Va.  [Mary said W.Va. – correct for 1880, as West Virginia became a state in 1863.]

 

Therefore, we can safely place John Scott’s birth place as Va., now W.Va., probably in the northwest panhandle.

 

As for the date of John Scott’s birth, the 1810 census for Washington Co., Pa. poses the possibility that he was born about 1794. (See discussion under Francis Scott in ¶ 1. above.)

 

The birth dates of the two daughters born to John & Maria (McCleary) Scott are also written in the Canaday Bible: 

§         Mary Scott, born Aug. 14, 1819.

§         Eliza Jane Scott, born Nov. 5, 1821. Eliza Jane’s 1902 obituary states that her birth place

      was Fowler’s,  Brooke Co. Va. We can logically assume that Mary was also born at

      Fowler’s.

 

In the 1820 census, John Scott was listed in Wellsburg, Brooke Co., Va. (now W.Va.), p. 031:

 

1 male 16-26

[John]  

b. 1794-1804

1 female<10

[daughter Mary]

b. 1810-1820

1 female 16-26

[wife Maria]

b. 1794-1804

                                                                                                                                         

This census confirms that John Scott could have been born in 1794. Daughter Mary was just one year old at the time the census was taken.

 

Maria (McCleary) Scott died 16 Oct. 1822.[46]  No specific record of John Scott, son of Francis & Elizabeth Scott, has been found for the years following Maria’s death.  Daughter Eliza Jane was less than a year old and Mary only three when their mother died.  It is likely that John left Virginia, probably bound for Guernsey Co., Ohio where his parents and most of his siblings resided.  He no doubt remarried.  There is record of a John Scott marrying Jane Neil in Guernsey Co. 5 Apr. 1825.[47]  That this John Scott was the son of Francis & Elizabeth (Hunter) Scott cannot be documented.

 

A John Scott of the right age appears as head of household in Adams Twp., Guernsey Co., Ohio in the U.S. census of 1830 (p. 452). Francis & Elizabeth Scott also lived in Adams Twp. in 1830.

 

1 male <5

[ ? ]

b. 1825-1830

1 male 30-40   

[John]  

b. 1790-1800

1 female <5     

[ ? ]

b. 1825-1830

2 females 5-10

[daughter Eliza Jane + ?]

b. 1820-1825

1 female 10-15

[daughter Mary]

b. 1815-1820

1 female 20-30

[second wife Jane ?]

b. 1800-1810

                                         

It is reasonable to speculate that this John Scott is the son of Francis & Elizabeth. He has three children five and under, apparently with his new wife.

 

A John Scott appears in the 1840, 1850, and 1860 censuses in Londonderry Twp., Guernsey Co. In 1850 he is 57 years old ; in 1860 he is 66 – right on – and his wife is Jane in both censuses.  So far, so good.  However, this John was born in Pa., not Va.  Also, he and Jane have a daughter Mary, aged 16 (1850) and 26 (1860).  It seems very unlikely that John would have a second daughter named Mary with Mary (Scott) Schreiber, daughter of Maria (McCleary) Scott, very much alive.

 

The two children of John & Maria (McCleary) Scott were:

 

i.         MARY SCOTT, born 14 Aug. 1819 in Brooke Co., Va., married Dr. CHARLES H. SCHREIBER 26 Sep. 1850 in Morgan Co., Ohio,[48] died 4/6 June 1895 in Sharon, Noble Co., Ohio.  Charles was born 9 Dec. 1816 in Hanover, Germany, died 1 Feb. 1872.  He was a son of C. Louis & Eliza (Smith) Schreiber.  Both Mary & Charles were buried in the Sharon Cemetery.[49]

 

When the 1850 census for Olive Twp., Morgan (now Noble) Co., Ohio, was taken on 30 July (pp.254-255), Mary Scott (age 20 [actually 30], born Va.) resided at the hotel which her sister, Eliza Jane, was operating with her husband, James Canada [Canaday].  Charles Schreiber lived nearby (p. 256).  He was listed as age 22 (33?), physician, $440 value of property, born Germany.

 

The Charles Schreibers received three bequests from Mary’s relatives on her mother’s side. On 11 June 1852 Charles H. Schreiber inherited $20 from the estate of his wife’s maternal grandfather, Thomas McCleary. In 1860 Mary’s uncle, James S. McCleary, willed her $75.  Mary is identified in James’ will as sister Mariah’s daughter Mary Scriber.[50] In 1894 the widow Mary received a disbursement of $391.51 from the estate of her uncle, Rev. Thomas McCleary.

 

In 1850 Charles Schreiber bought for $740 from J. McGlashen, land in S6/T6/R2 (i.e., just north of the Village of Sharon in what was then Morgan Co., Ohio).[51]

 

On 17 Jan. 1853 he bought from Isaac & Maria McMunn one acre + 34 sq. perches in the SE¼ of Section 6, Township 6, Range 9 in the Zanesville Land District.  He paid $150 for this property which was said to be near Joseph Manifold’s horse mill.[52]  On 10 Oct. 1860 he bought from Joseph & Jean (Stevens) Wiles, another parcel in the same quarter section for which he paid $50.[53]

 

Dr. Schreiber modestly speculated in the real estate market in the Village of Sharon and also in Caldwell, the seat of Noble County.

 

In 1862 Charles Schreiber bought from D.K. & Nancy Paxton lots #30, 31, & 32 in Bell’s Addition to the Village of Sharon for $400.[54]  He and his wife Mary sold these three lots in 1863 to Edmon W. Walls for $500.[55]

 

In 1864, Dr. Schreiber purchased from Watson & Anna Augusta Russell four other lots in Bell’s Addition to the Village of Sharon:  #24, 27, 28, & 29.  He paid $180.  Five years later, in 1869, the Schreibers sold these four lots to John Wiley for $200.[56]

 

That same year, on 22 Oct. 1869, Dr. Schreiber bought from D. S. & Ada Gibbs for $1,200, lot #68 in the town of Caldwell.[57]  Two years later, he and Mary sold this lot to Dr. Schreiber’s brother, Adolph Julius Schreiber for $1,320.[58]  A resident of Harrison Co., Ohio, Adolph Schreiber made this investment with the apparent intention of helping his brother. In 1871 Dr. Schreiber was involved in a malpractice suit and may have needed the cash that he had tied up in this property.

 

After Dr. Schreiber’s death in Feb. 1872, Mary Schreiber bought the Caldwell lot back from her brother-in-law and wife Mary Ann for the apparent fair market value of $1,500.[59]  Possibly strapped for cash again, Mary sold the property back to the Harrison Co. Schreibers on 20 Mar. 1885 for $1,000.[60] Whether the property had lost one-third of its value since Mary’s 1872 purchase or whether Adolph Schreiber had tired of bailing his relatives out can be simply conjecture.

 

Dr. Schreiber, in partnership with Frederick Yerian, owned a drug store.  In 1871 the two men bought the south half of Lot #20 in Sharon for this enterprise. Susanna Emmons was the seller, receiving $200 for the half lot and stone house that stood upon it.  In July 1872, after Dr. Schreiber’s death, his widow and two daughters sold his half share in this property to Frederick Yerian for $425.[61]

 

In the 1860 census for Sharon Village, Noble Co., Ohio (dwelling #46, family #46), Physician Charles Schreiber was head of the following household:

-         Charles Schriber, 42

-         Mary Schriber, 40, domestic

-         Charlott Schriber, 9

-         Virginia Schriber, 6

-         Julius Schriber, 3

-         Lewis Schriber, 9/12.

 

On 17 May 1862 Mrs. Mary Scriber was received by examination in the Olive Presbyterian Church.  Dr. C. Schreiber was received by examination 12 Feb. 1869.[62]

 

In the 1870 census for the Village of Sharon, Sharon Twp., Noble Co., Ohio (p. 26) Charles Schreiber was head of the following household:

-         Charles W. Schreiber, 54, male, Physician & Surgeon, $3,000 value of real estate, $600 value of personal property, born Hanover, Germany, male citizen of U.S.

-         Mary Schreiber, 50, female, keeping house, born Va.

-         Charlotte Schreiber, 18, female, helps mother, born Ohio

-         Virginia Schreiber, 16, female, attends school, born Ohio

-         Julius Schreiber, 14, male, attends school, born Ohio

-         Louis Schreiber, 11, male attends school., born Ohio.

 

On 2 Mar 1871, a medical malpractice suit was filed against Dr. Charles Schreiber by Thomas Kaveney who claimed that the defendant had improperly set Mr. Kaveney’s dislocated right hip joint in 1868.  Dr. Schreiber was accused of carelessness, negligence and “unskillfulness” resulting in the total loss of use of the plaintiff’s right leg.  Mr. Kavaney sought a settlement of $2,000.

 

On 23 Sep. 1871 Dr. Schreiber had his day in the Court of Common Pleas.  He denied having been retained to set the dislocated hip, insisting that he merely visited and treated the plaintiff on a post-op basis. Dr. Schreiber made a successful argument and the case was dismissed.  The lawsuit, however, took its toll on Dr. Schreiber’s health.

 

Charles Schreiber of Sharon Twp. wrote his will 13 Dec. 1871, naming his wife Mary, his daughters Ann Charlotte & Mary Virginia, and his sons Charles Julius & Lewis Otto as his heirs. Executors were his wife and his brother Adolph Julius Schreiber.  Witnesses were J. W. Kraps, Frederick Yerian & Joseph Purkey.[63]  As stated above, Frederick Yerian was a partner in the drug store.  Joseph Purkey, an attorney, was the son-in-law of Mary Scott Schreiber’s sister, Eliza Jane Scott Canaday.

 

In his will, Dr. Schreiber directed that $400 be deducted from the estate share of each of his daughters, as he had paid that amount for the education of Ann Charlotte and bought a piano for Mary Virginia valued at $400.  He asked that his wife see to the education of their two sons to the extent of $400 each, so long as their schooling did not financially encumber his widow “in her living.”  If the boys should choose not to go to school, each was to receive $400 upon reaching the age of 21.[64]

 

Fifty-five year-old Charles Schreiber died of consumption on 1 Feb.1872 and was buried in the Sharon Cemetery. Probate of his will began 24 June 1872. His brother Adolph Schreiber was excused from the role of co-executor on the grounds that he did not live locally.  (His home was in Harrison Co., Ohio.)

 

Several items of a personal nature not deemed to be assets of the deceased were retained by his family without being inventoried.  They included the stove, sewing machine, family Bible and photographs, books, twelve sheep, and all wearing apparel of the family and the deceased.  In addition, Mary was allowed to choose $100 worth of other family possessions which was spared from the estate inventory. Also, the following items, with a total value of $27.00, was allowed for one year’s support of the widow: 10 bu. corn, 5 gal. vinegar, 10 gal. soft soap, 150 bu. coal, and 100 lbs. of  bacon.

 

The final accounting of Charles Schreiber’s estate was made on 21 Nov. 1876.[65]  The total value was $1,138.59, which included $800 received from Frederick Yerian for partnership inventory in the drug store.  Among Dr. Schreiber’s outstanding debts was $8.00 for the defending attorney in the malpractice case.  The cemetery monument costing $120 wiped out a big chunk of the family’s inheritance while claims by others exceeded $800.  The final account recorded in Noble Co. Will Book 7, page 549, revealed that both daughters and son Louis Otto had reached their majority. (Had elder son Charles Julius died before his father’s will was finalized?)  It concluded that “personal and real property left by the testator is scarcely sufficient for the proper maintenance of the surviving widow.  Therefore, the specified requests cannot be carried out.”

 

In the 1880 census for E.D. 197, Sharon Twp., Noble Co., Ohio (p. D16), Mary Schreiber was head of the following household:

-         Mary Schreiber, female, 60, widow, keeping house, born W.Va., father born W.Va., mother born W.Va. [actually Va.]

-         Anna C. Schreiber, female, 28, daughter, single, keeping house, born Ohio, father born Prussia, mother born W.Va.

-         Louis O. Schreiber, male, 20, single, merchant, born Ohio, father born Prussia, mother born W.Va.

 

Mary Schreiber outlived Charles by 23 years. She died 4/6 June 1895 and was buried beside her husband.[66]  The uncertainty about the exact date of Mary’s death stems from the fact that her tombstone reads June 4, but “The Caldwell Press” reported on June 6 under its column entitled “Sharon” that “Mrs. Schreiber is lying at the point of death from a stroke of paralysis.”  That particular newspaper was a weekly, so perhaps the story was written several days ahead of publication and was therefore, not entirely current. There was no entry for Mary Schreiber’s death in the Noble County Court House.

 

Figure 11 shows the Schreiber property (lots 35, 36, & 37) on Mill St., Sharon, in 1876.[67]

 

The children of Charles & Mary (Scott) Schreiber were all born in Noble Co., Ohio:

 

  1. ANN CHARLOTTE SCHREIBER, born ca. 1852, died unmarried ca. 1935, buried beside her parents in Sharon Cemetery.  Ann Charlotte (Lottie) attended the funeral of her Aunt Eliza Jane (Scott) Canaday in Cumberland, Ohio in 1902.

 

b.      MARY VIRGINIA SCHREIBER, born ca. 1854. Her father bought her a piano at the cost of $400.

 

c.       CHARLES JULIUS SCHREIBER, born ca. 1856. Because his father’s estate report did not mention Charles Julius even though the will did, it is presumed that Charles died between the writing of  Dr. Schreiber’s will on 13 Dec. 1871 and the will’s final accounting on 21 Nov. 1876.  It should be noted, however, that the 1900 census for Sharon Twp. Noble Co., Ohio (dwelling #226, family #226) listed a Charles Schreiber, 50, as head of household living alone.  Dr. Charles Schreiber’s elder son would have been 43/44 in 1900.  No Charles Schreiber could be found in the 1910 or 1920 census for Noble Co.

 

d.      LEWIS OTTO SCHREIBER, born 1 Sep. 1859.  In 1880 he was a merchant living at home with his mother and elder sister.

 

ii.       ELIZA JANE SCOTT, born 5 Nov. 1821 at Fowler’s, Brooke Co., Va. (now W.Va.), married JAMES CANADAY 26 Aug. 1841 in Zanesville, Muskingum Co., Ohio, died 31 Mar. 1902 in Cumberland, Spencer Twp., Guernsey Co., Ohio, buried in Cumberland Cemetery (see ¶3. below).
