I am having a very, very challenging time tracing back my family history due to us having an extremely common last name. In an attempt to narrow the search down a bit, is there anyone out there that is African-American with a last name or maiden name of Scott? If so, I would love to correspond with you to share information. I have been doing this research for approximately 10 years now and have hit a very hard brick wall not being able to get beyond the mid-1800's. Anyone out there, please respond.
