SCOTT family ~ VA to OH & Ontario
I am searching for relatives of Thomas Scott, whose obit states that he was born in Fincastle, Botetourt County, Virginia ca 1816. The book, Botetourt County Virginia Marriages 1770-1853 lists his marriage to Ann Eliza Hill in 1834. The bondsman was Joshua Hill, father. The children from this marriage included Cassius Scott and Sarah Scott Jones. After migrating to Fayette County, Ohio and possibly Gallipolis,Thomas Scott lived in Chatham, Canada for many years. Ann Eliza died and he married a lady named Eunice with whom he had several more children. Thomas and Eunice later returned to Ohio and are buried in Cherry Grove Cemetery in Xenia. I understand that a family book was written about the Scotts which includes some information about Thomas' first wife, Ann Eliza Hill, who was the sister of my great great grandmother, Henrietta Hill Maxwell.
Does any of this ring a bell with anyone?
