I am searching and searching for any family info on William James Scott of Maryland (1815-1880)... particularly who were his parents? His son William James Scott II also lived in Maryland (1858-1930ish.) My brick walls are these Scott families.
Somewhere in this Scott family there is a "Sally" Scott from Kentucky who was a cousin of my Great Grandmother, "Annie" Scott who married my Great Grandfather, George Edras (Washington) Bevans, both from Maryland. My mother listed George with the 4 names, but I can only find George Esdras Bevans as his full name.
Sally Scott is my brick wall .... Census tells me she was born in KY, and her cousin, Annie Scott was born in MD. Both of these women moved with Annie's son, Rev. George Esdras Bevans to NJ to minister his church in Elizabeth, NJ. I am searching for any info tied with this Sally Scott and her family.
Many thanks, Ellen Scott Brezina Hoagland
