Thanks very much for your reply. I do have additional information about my Scott family of Roxburgh. Most of this info is from FHL Scotland Parish microfiche. It appears that all were from Melrose.
Andrew Scott b abt 1777 Melrose, Roxburgh, Scotland mar Joanna Hope chr 1770 Southdean, Roxburgh, Scotland
children Scott, all b Melrose Alexander b 16 Nov 1803 James b 19 Sep 1805 Margaret chr 29 Apr 1810 Robert chr 2 Dec 1807 Andrew b 19 Jul 1812 George chr 18 Jan 1815 John Scott b 11 Jul 18 1816 (ggrandfather of poster)
I would be pleased to hear from any Scott researcher who knows about any of the members of this family.
