A Brief Summary

Delos T. SCOTT was born about 1834 in Otsego County, New York, the son of Samuel SCOTT and Anna PATTEN. On 25 March 1857, in Delhi, Delaware Co., New York, he married Harriet S. STEELE, born about 1834, in Delaware Co., New York, the daughter of Matthew STEELE and Margaret [CAMPBELL?]. In the late 1850s, the couple moved to Aurora, Steele Co., Minnesota, where they had at least five children, Lelia, Anna, George, Matthew and Hattie. Delos died in 1871 and Harriet in 1876, and the children were separated, each going to live with other families. (Also tied into this story are the family of Delos's brother Ceylon SCOTT, who married Harriet's sister Annis M. STEELE.)

These webpages serve to publish what we know about Delos and Harriet, their ancestors and descendants, the stories and evidence we have so far, and the questions that are still unanswered. I am not a descendant of this couple, but for several years I have been working on their family connections for Rich Koenings, their great-great-grandson, and he asked me to help him set up this website in hopes of sharing with other researchers who may have come across other information that we have not.
