#24 William Scott (Jr), 5th Great Grandfather

William was born in 1786 in Bedford, Virginia to William Scott & Lucy James.  He married Elizabeth McCoy circa 1802 in Jefferson County, Tennessee.  They had 10 children.  William died 22nd of October 1864 in Pike County, Kentucky.

Documented Sources:

  • ·       1840 Pike County Kentucky census, page 279
  • ·       1850 Pike County Kentucky Census, Dwelling/Family #795, William is 64 years old, born in Virginia, cannot read or write, and is a farmer.  Living with him is his wife Elizabeth, age 63.  She was also born in Virginia and cannot read or write.
  • ·       1860 Pike County Kentucky Census, pg 99, dwelling #471, Family #465 (still next door to the Blackburns).  Identifies both William & Elizabeth, both are 76, both born in Virginia, and both cannot read or write.
