"DR. C. SCOTT was born in Wayne County, Indiana, October 2, 1821, and came with his parents to Cass County, this state, in 1833. He is the eldest of the six surviving children of nine born to ALEXANDER and UNITY R. (WATTS) SCOTT, and when a young man was engaged in teaching school. January 7, 1845, he married REBECCA HICKS, and in 1847 came to Jackson Township, this county (White), and began farming. MRS. SCOTT died November 29, of the same year, leaving two children, of whom one died in infancy, and the other, ARNEY, was starved to death in Andersonville Prison. May 25, 1848, Dr. SCOTT married MARY ANN SHEPPARD, who bore him five children (two, MARCELLUS P. and HORACE, yet living), and died May 29, 1857. He next married, January 10, 1858, ELIZABETH HEALY. In November, 1866, he moved to Liberty Township, and thence to Monticello in April 1882, and here he is still actively engaged in the practice of medicine. Of the nine children borne him by his present wife, seven are yet living - MARY R., HARRIET L., MAGGIE A., FLORENCE G., VIOLA C., SYLVESTER A., and HENRY M. Dr. SCOTT is still the owner of eighty acres of land in Liberty Township; in politics, he is a Republican, having united with the party in 1856, although he was reared a Democrat, and he and wife are members of the Church of Christ. The parents of the Doctor came to White County in about 1850, and both ended their days in Liberty Township."
