He was probably b. around seventeen seventy and went to Kentucky and Lived in Bourbon county. He then moved to Indiana and from there to Arkansas and lived to be one hundred and ten years of age.

Susan was my Greatggrandmother and she married John Gaskins. It was their move to Arkansas that caused a number of relatives to follow. And they joined the Cavalry and as foot soldiers in the civil war.. Most of them
signed up in Missouri to join the North...a few stayed behind and fought for the Confederates. But not the Scotts or Gaskins.
