Hi Lyn - The William F. Scott I referred to was listed in the 1850 and 1860 Census as living in Prince Edward County, Virginia (Moore's Ordinary, now Meherrin,VA). Included in his household was his overseer, Thomas Bigger (son of John and Elizabeth Cary Bigger) and an elderly woman named Mary Meadows (born around 1776).

Mary Meadows was the aunt of Mary J. Tatum.

I believe this William F. Scott may have been associated with Briery Church. In December of 1828, the following Scotts were listed as members in that church:

Captain Charles Scott, son of Thomas Scott "removed to Cub in 1808, died before Dec 1838.
Col. Thomas Scott, second husband of Ruth Billups,
Mary, wife of William Scott, died 21 Jan 1826
Meeky Scott,
Priscilla Scott, sister of Clement Read and wife of Capt. Charles Scott.
Sally, daughter of William Scott.
William Scott, Ruling Elder.

There were a number of Meadows included in the membership in December of 1828:

Ann P. Meadows, granddaughter of Jeremiah Meadows
Austin, son of James Meadows,
Jeremiah Meadows, died 28 September 1800
Mary, daughter of James Meadows
Sarah, wife of James Meadows died May of 1818

The only extraneous bit of information I have on William F. Scott is that he was once a constable of Prince Edward County. His middle name was either Francis or Frazier per the marriage records of his natural daughters.
