Scott Family Genealogy & History
Our Thomas Jefferson Scott was thought to be, for sometime, the youngest of 15 children by the same mother and father, in Lauderdale County, Alabama. The census records showed the large family as being in two separate homes, father John Scott, as head of household and Harriet, mother, head of household in a second house.  After years of searching, and several tries at advertising in Genealogical Magazines, my ad was finally answered by Jan Gerow of Florida.  Thanks to Jan this confused family was cleared up, or at least most have been cleared.  And Thanks to Jan, again, for the Church Photo above.

It seems John Scott married first and had 11 children; married second and had four more children, the last being our Thomas Jefferson Scott.  But there were more children in the family, the second wife, Harriet, also brought children into the household from her first marriage.  Sorting them out was not easy, because the census taker wrote them all as Scott children, even the Thompson children of Harriet's first marriage.
Although John Scott's parents have not been located they are indicated on the census records as being born in North Carolina where John was born.


John Scott, born 1800 in North Carolina; died after 1880 in Waterloo, Lauderdale County, Alabama. He married 1/ about 1823, but place unknown, to Mary Elizabeth Carson; married 2/ about 1843, in Waterloo, Alabama, to Harriet Frances (Ferrell) Thompson.  Harriet was born 4 Nov 1810 in Lawrence Co., Ala.; died after 1880 census of Ala. It is said that John's will is recorded at the Lauderdale County Court House and was seen by a descendant while researching the Scott line.  But when it was requested by mail the will was not in the index, and therefore is not recorded. (1990)

   From OUR THOMPSON LINE by Earline Thompson Lancaster: After Harriet's first husband died, and she had married John Scott. "John Petitioned to settle the Estate of Samuel Thompson.  This was submitted Nov 12, 1869.  He listed William, John, Sara, and Margaret (Thompson), as being dead with Minor heirs being in Ark., and Giles County, Tenn.  He knew no names or ages of the heirs.

The farm was sold Aug 19, 1871.  It probably took
this long to locate the heirs.  Rufus Scott (son of John
Scott) bought the farm for $603.55, after taxes, court
costs, administration fees, etc., there was left $540.45,
which was divided among the heirs.  Harriet's share
was $86.26.

As I understand it the land is still in the Scott family,
the house of course is gone but the house of John Scott
built from huge poplar logs near Waterloo, Ala., where
Harriet spent her last years, still stands. (1985)  The logs
were hand hewn, notched together at the ends with plaster
between them.

John is probably buried in the graveyard above the
old home (a great granddaughter told me there were three
graves there.) These are most likely, John Scott, his first
wife Mary Elizabeth Carson and baby girl, who died at
age 5.

No information on burial place for Harriet, "family
record" states she died Dec 5, 1880. She was not mentioned
in John Scott's will which was written Dec 16, 1880.  He
only named children - James, Tennessee Haney, Malinda
Adams, Franklin Scott, Poindexter Scott, Thomas Scott,
Camily Robertson, Robert Scott; sons John Scott, Jr.,
and R. C. Scott as executors.

The heading of the marriage license in OUR THOMPSON
LINE book has the spelling of "Schoot", which may be a
typing error or the registrar spelled Scott with the "h."
Marriage Records, Vol. 5, p. 136 Lauderdale County, Alabama.


"The state of Alabama Lauderdale County to a Minister of the gospel or justice of the Peace legally Authorized you are hereby authorized and required to solemnize the Rites of Matrimony between John Scott and Harriett Thompson (CLICK for children that Harriett brought to this mariage.) agreeable to the statute in such case made and provided and a due return make to the Clerks office for the county aforesaid Given under my hand this first day of June in the year of our Lord 1844 - W. T. Hawkins C.C.C. by E. G. Chandler J.P.D. I do hereby certify that I solemnized the rites of matrimony between John Scott and Harriet Thompson this the 9th day of June 1844. Jas. M. Creel JP -" John Scott had 15 children by two wives.

Children of John and Mary Elizabeth (Carson) Scott, they had:
2130. William Moore Scott, born 24 Feb 1825 in Lauderdale County, Alabama; died 24 Mar 1886.
2131. James Monroe Scott, born 22 Apr 1826. (Large extended family, refer to chapter 51.)
2132. Charlotte Matilda Scott, born 12 Jul 1827, Alabama; died 20 Feb 1830.
2133. Catherine Tennessee Scott, born 22 Oct 1828 in Waterloo, Alabama; died 16 Feb 1902, Ala.

2136. John Madison Scott, born 28 Apr 1833 in Waterloo,  Alabama;
died 18 Mar 1911 in Lauderdale Co., Ala. 
Some say the records states his middle name is Webb.  He married 1/ about 1858 to Eliza
Ann Steely, she was born in Kentucky in 1836.  Probably died before 1880, because she is
     not listed in the 1880 census; and  married 2/ 18 Dec 1883, in Waterloo. Scott researcher
writes: "There are 4 more children to his family, Porter, Millard, Bartlie, Rosie.
In looking at the family group sheets and the marriages and census, I don't think
John Madison Scott married Ella Lawler. I don't think he really had a second wife. 
There is a  marriage record for `a' John Scott to Ella Mae Lawler, and on the 1900
census a John T. Scott was married to  Ella M.  He was born in 1859. I think the FGS
is wrong."  If anyone can clarify this, please let us know.

Home of John Scott in Bumpass Creek just north of Waterloo, Lauderdale Co., Alabama.  Log home was covered with siding.  Bertha Michael in yellow and Mary Elizabeth Hitchcock on right. Bertha took us to the place in the winter and we had to take our shoes off and wade the creek.
This house is where Thomas Jefferson, Robert, Camille, and Mary Ann Scott were born as far as I know, and probably where the children of John and Mary E Carson were born also.  Source: Bill Scott
WILLIAM THOMAS SCOTT  Brother to John SCOTT b. 1800 NC

William Thomas Scott was brother to John Scott (1800-1880), William is being added here to help sort out more of the many Scott names.  He was born 1804/5 in North Carolina, but was in the 1850 thru the 1880 census of Lauderdale County, Alabama.

William may have been married three times.  He is in the 1850 Lauderdale County, Alabama, census as married with wife Louisa and seven children.  The marriage date for William Scott and Louisa Higgins is 8 May 1847 in Lauderdale County.  Louisa was born in 1824 and would make her to young to have the first child, James born 1831.  The first five children are probably by William's first wife.  All the other children by Louisa.  In the 1880 census, William's wife is Lauria, born 1815, Ala.  These children will not be numbered as the other families.  This is for research information if someone would like to continue this Scott family.

All the children were born in Lauderdale County, Alabama, 1880 Census
i. James Scott, born 1831. 1850 census, age 19, asst. farmer.
ii. Miles Scott, born 1837. 1850 census, age 13.

2142. Thomas Jefferson Scott, son of John and Harriet (Ferrell) Scott, was born 30 Apr 1848 in Waterloo, Lauderdale County, Alabama; he died 18 apr 1933 in Barton County, Missouri.  He married 5 Sep 1871 in Miami Township, Bates County, Missouri to Mary Ann John, daughter of Jesse and Amelia (Russel) John.  Mary Ann was born 7 Jun 1852 in Pennsylvania and died 21 Mar 1922 in Barton County, Missouri.  They are both buried in the Nashville Cemetery, near Nashville, Missouri.

Lamar Democrat Newspaper - FAMILY REUNION - The descendants of Thomas Jefferson and Mary Scott gathered at the home of Mrs. Gussie Dingman Qualls at Oronogo, on July 19th, 1964, for a reunion.
Mr. and Mrs. T. J. Scott came to Barton Co., Mo., in 1880 from Cherryvale, Kans.  They settled near Nashville, Mo., to live out their lives.  they had 3 sons, and 2 daughters.  Jesse, the oldest son went to South Dakota when he married, and reared a family of 9 children.  The other 4 Scott children stayed in Barton County.
The children of Jesse Scott who were here; Mrs. Mary Livingston; Mrs. Bessie Daniels; Mrs. Blanch Skidmore; Mrs. Alice Ferdig; and Mrs. Kenneth Scott.
The children of Ida Scott Dingman in attendance were: Mrs. Gussie Dingman Qualls; Mrs. Lillie Wethington; Mr. Elmer Dingman; and Mr. Arza (Jake) Dingman.
The children of W. N. Scott who were present were: Mrs. Elsie Snyder; Mrs. Lavone Dumm; Mrs. Evelyn Waterstraat; Mrs. Lena Weems; Mrs. Janie Sailor; and Mrs. Grace Howard."

In the 1870 Bates County, Missouri, census records T. J. is listed as a
laborer on a farm, but by 1871 he had married Mary Ann John and settled
in Labette County, Kansas. About 1880 when they moved to Barton County,
Missouri, which is just over the state line. They bought land and had 3 more
children, with the last not surviving.  Mary dies at the age of 69 and T. J.
married a second time to Ann Sanborn on 8 Jun 1926.  From family records
and his death certificate it shows that T. J. was in a wheelchair for several
years before he died.  The family was not to happy with this relationship of
Ann and T. J., because every few weeks T. J. would get sick and one of the
children or grandchildren would take him home and nurse him back to health. 
Ann seemed to be unable to care for him during his illnesses.  Upon T. J.'s
marvelous recovery, T. J. would go back home to his loving wife.  She would
then be so pleased to have him home, that she would cook and bake special
foods just for him.  And since she was very good at baking, T. J. ate like a
King.  But in a few weeks his legs and hands would start to swell up again
and again one of the family would take T. J. home to doctor him back to
health. During this time of T. J.'s up and down health, some of the family
started to suspect that Ann was trying to poison him for his money and to
get the farm, so she could sell it to live on while she trapped another husband. 
The whole situation became so unbearable for the great baker Ann, that she
finally "Packed her bags and moved out." One of the family stated, very
protectively, that "she left with only the clothes on her back."  The family
had saved him again from a terrible fate.

Upon examining the facts, it is somewhat obvious that T. J. had diabetes and after eating all the good sweets that Ann baked for him, caused his legs to swell, which in turn prevented him from getting around and he would be hauled off by a family member to be "healed" again.

T. J. lived to be 84 years, 11 months, and 18 days old.  Which for the time of home remedies, he lived a long, but maybe not so healthy life.  Interesting to note that on his death certificate stated that he was a widower and husband of Mary Ann Scott.  No mention was made of Anna Sanford, or a second marriage.

T. J. enjoyed putting his young granddaughter on the feet braces of his wheelchair and wheeling her all around the house. Of course everyone would scold Genieve for taking the chance of hurting Grandpa's feet, but when everyone was out of the room again, Grandpa would put Genieve back on his wheelchair and away they would wheel.

In Barton County, T. J. Scott had one of the biggest barns with a hay peek to haul hay up to the top of the barn.  In 1979 the old barn was still standing, with head high weeds surrounding it but the house and other outbuildings were gone.  In a couple years the barn was gone too.

2180. Ida Dell Scott, born 5 Jun 1872. She married George Dingman.

she and the family used the spelling of Camley.
She married on 7 Nov 1899 to Henry Newton Lauck.  --->>>>

From Jan Scott Gerow about her father: "My grandmother said she made
a visit from Sheffield, Alabama to see her relatives in Clifton, Tennessee and
while she was there he was born.  His first name was the same as his father
and great-grandfather, and his middle name - Darius - was named for his
mother's father.  He always hated the name and would use David on
everything but legal documents.  My grandmother said he was very good,
just full of mischief.  The mischief stayed with him throughout his adult life. 
My mother said he was a wonderful husband.  I never heard them argue.
Everyone loved my father, the neighbors, the people who worked with him,
and everyone who came in contact with him, but none more than his family. 
I was not close to any friend or family member like I was to him as a child
and teenager.  He was my best friend. My Dad became a Christian and joined
the Capitol Hill Baptist Church in the 1940's.
I don't know much about his father, James Barney Scott.  He was staying
with his mother's sister in Clifton, Tenn., when he met my grandmother.  After
marrying they moved to Sheffield, Ala.  On the 1910 census they were staying
in Andrew and Martha Scott's hotel.  They later bought a house with a picket
fence.  Barney worked at different jobs, was an electrician, among other things. 
They moved to Oklahoma City in the 1930's.  Barney was a very good man, and
I cannot do him justice in his qualities.
His brother, William, to put it in Barney's words, `never had serious thought in
his life.' He was so happy and loved life.  I have just never met anyone like him. 
He used to take Aunt Betty and a cousin on trips.  I have seen an old picture of
him where he was living underground.
My memories of Aunt Minnie were that she was a Victorian type of lady, but full of fun. The inside of her house looked Victorian, and I wish I had known her better.  She was a very pretty woman even in later years.
I never met Barney's other sister, Beadie, and do not know anything about her."

Children of James Darius and Ophelia (Mooneyham) Scott:
2336. Barbara Elizabeth Scott, born 23 Oct 1938 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma;
married 1966, to Frank Wesley Harris.
2337. Janice Darlene Scott, born 3 Jun 1940 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. 
She married 8 Jan 1982, in Orlando, Orange County, Florida to Thomas Frank Gerow.

Hi, Beth, I was doing a little searching for my grandfather, Phillip Burrell, when I happened upon your Scott Genealogy.  It shows that Mary Belle Scott (#2225) married Charles Livingston then Phillip Burrell (my uncle, son of the Phillip I was researching).  I thought I'd help you out a little here:  Mary married Phillip first.  He was struck and killed by lightening when she was pregnant with her fourth son.  She then married Charles, known as "Jude,"who was a wonderful stepfather to her sons, Ralph, George, Melvin, and Burdett Burrell (I always get George and Melvin's birth order mixed up; hope this is right).  I remember visiting Mary and Jude at their home in Sioux City, Iowa, when I was young.  My mother was Phillip's youngest sister.  She outlived all her nephews, who were her contemporaries, and died at the age of 85 in 1999.  All four of her nephews had children, so there are many Burrells from this line, mostly in South Dakota and Iowa.          Hope this help you fill in your already excellent Scott family tree.
Sincerely,                 Deborah Wade                     [email protected]                        Thanks Deborah.....

She died Jun 19 1994 in Elk point, South Dakota. Just wanted to let you know of some corrections. Minnie was born in Elk Point, South Dakota and she first married Bertram W Davis born 1904 and died of pneumonia in 1932 and they had three children: Doris Evelyn Davis, Floyd Leroy Davis, and Walter Kenneth Davis. Minnie then married Edward LaVern Johnson and they had Phyllis Leona Johnson who married Stanley Justine Solem. My website is <> if you would like do get some info from that you are welcome. I will also send you and invite. Also my mother Phyllis Johnson Solem wanted to let you know that Blanche Marie Scott #2228 married Frank Dunham and their children are: Helen Dunham Harkness, Gerald Dunham, Ben Dunham, Dorothy ( Dottie ) Dunham Johnson, Larry Dunham. She later in life married Sid Skidmore and had no children with him, only stepchildren of his. And #2232 it should be Francis Hartwig. And #2289 should be Rita Ferdig.                Thanks Kathy
