The Bangell Dam covered the town of Old Linn Creek Missouri.
Many people who had lived in the beautiful hills of the Ozarks
gave up the land they loved and move to the city. Simon Scott
and many of his friends were among the people who moved

George Scott and Flora Ellen Snyder Scott married in 1903 in Passover Missouri. By the time Passover had become Linn Creek they had a family and lived by Simon and Elizabeth Scott. After the Dam took the little town of Linn Creek, Simon moved his family to Buckner Missouri and George moved his family to Tulsa Oklahoma. My great grandfather George Scott went to work at the Mid-Continent refinery in West Tulsa. The oil boom was in full swing in the 1920's. By the time the Scott family moved to Tulsa it had changed from a small frontier town to a boomtown with the discovery of oil in 1901 at Red Fork, a small community southwest of Tulsa and on the opposite side of the Arkansas River. I was born in Tulsa in 1936. My parents lost a baby girl when she was 8 months old in 1927.

Another community that flourished in Tulsa during the early oil booms was Greenwood. It was the largest and wealthiest of Oklahoma's African American communities and was known nationally as "Black Wall Street". The neighborhood was a hotbed of jazz and blues in the 1920s. The scene in Greenwood was so hot that story has it that in 1927 while on tour, Count Basie heard a dance band in a club in Greenwood and decided to focus on jazz.

Tulsa has a interesting history and it can be found at   Tulsa Oklahoma

The information about Simon Scott and his family has been moved to book two.
You have all read it many times. I want to put up some new records.
I will not be doing as much genealogy as I have in the past.
I am getting ...old ... :) and need to slow down
I love my family and hope this helps the younger generations to find more about our Scott's. Thank you

Elisha Scott
Was born in Boone county, Indiana, July 20th, 1840, emigrated with
his parents to Laclede county, Mo., in the fall of 1850, united to
the Christian church in 1858 or 59, being baptized in the Dry Glaze,
volunteered in the Union army in June 1861; was mustered out
November 20th, 1865, at Benton Barracks, Mo. Was married
March 24th, 1864, to Miss Mary H. Wood, and moved to Greenwood
county, Kansas, in April, 1883. “The first vote I ever
cast was for Abraham Lincoln for his second term for president.”

The above was written by Mr. Scott some time prior to his death,
and in anticipation of that event, as he had been in very poor
health for several years past. In fact more than a year ago it
was not thought possible that he could live but a very short time.
Consumption was the dreaded disease with which he had to contend.
He died January 6th, 1901. His wife survives him.
No man in our town was held in higher esteem then was Elisha Scott.
In his death the community loses a good citizen.
