Re: the Gibson Indians
In Response To: Re: the Gibson Indians ()
Scott is a very common name, but the Scotts of Henrico County were such a large family (at least 100 people in the mid-1700s) that I have always wondered if they were connected to the North Carolina Scotts. It would not be surprising to find that some had moved into Charles City County,and I noticed they are often listed with Chavis and Evans.
A Francis Scott was sued for trespass in Henrico County court on 2 September 1708 by Bartholomew Chavis who was sued by Thomas Evans for debt in October that year [Henrico County Orders 1707-9, 74, 92]. Francis and Abraham Scott were listed (consecutively) in the Edgecombe County, North Carolina muster of militia with members of the Chavis and Evans families in the 1750s: Willm Allen, Francess Scoot, James Evens, Benjamine Cheavers, Abraham Scoot [North Carolina Archives Troop Returns, 1-12, last page].
