Dear Scott and Sharon,
I'm a descendant of Joseph and Polly (Faunce) Scott, of Huntsburg, Geauga County, OH, and I'd like to get in on this discussion. Please send me more information about the Scott Researcher. I just subscribed to census files at ancestry.com and I hope that will help me find new clues (e.g., where was Joseph Scott from? who was Elizabeth Rice's family, and where was she from?)
I think the names of Joseph Scott's sons, Adolphus and Christopher Columbus, may come from his ancestral line and may provide clues to Joseph's identity. Also the fact that he was living on the farm of a Giles Scott, with a J. W. Scott nearby, in Rome, Ashtabula County, OH in the 1820's before he moved to his farm in Geauga County.
Scott, I now have a new e-mail address, in case you have tried to reach me previously. We've communicated extensively in the past about our Faunce ancestors. Also, I recently moved to a different state.
