Subject: information on William Scott ?1738-1804
I have started a search for my ancestors and found this site. I have information on them
in this country and would like to fill in some blanks and extend the search into our
Scottish heritage. I am looking for information on a William Scott born aprox 1738
probably on a ship form Scotoland and died aprox 1804. I know that he came down the Ohio
River with George Rogers Clark to Corn Island and was one of the 65 who helped defend
Documented data written by Ruth Hendricks DeVerter states "In Collins
"Historyof Kentucky" Vol I, p. 13 "Soldier's Under Capt. Isaac Ruddle
1779-1780 at ruddles (near present cynthiana) and Martin's Stations". Under Lt.
John Hoggin, Ens. John Mather, Q.M. James Isaacs, and Sgt. John Waters we find listed:
Does anyone have information on this William Scott..... married Helen Montgomery near
Lancaster, Penn in 1767, had 4 children Robert Scott 1769, John Scott 1770, Margaret Scott
1772 and Patrick Scott 1774?
