Peter V. Scott, born in 1802, is my 3great-grandfather. I believe the V. stands for Van Dyke and was probably a maiden name of Peter's mother or grandmother. Peter lived in the Stamford-Greenwich area of Connecticut and is buried in the Baptist Cemetery in Glenville, Conn. on the border with Rye, N.Y. This leaves me to speculate Peter's parents and grandparents either lived in Fairfield County, Conn., Westchester County, N.Y., or perhaps on Long Island and were part of the Scott migration to southwest Connecticut.
Is anyone researching the Scott name have a Van Dyke branch in their tree? If so, I would enjoy hearing from you.
