My ancestors Joseph and Polly (Faunce) Scott migrated to Ashtabula County from someplace in NY State in early 1830's. I've been unable to identify ancestors of Joseph, b. ca 1803, possibly in or around Ontario/Wayne counties NY, and died Huntsburg 1855.
Living nearby were a GILES SCOTT and a J. W. SCOTT, also from NY according to census records. Census records indicate possibility that the father of one or both of these was born in Scotland.
I'm looking for a possible link - does anybody have information about these families?
There may also have been connections to the SOBER and CLAPP families, some of whom lived in neighboring Geauga County, and to a George HOLLOWAY who died in Phelps NY ca 1850-1855, leaving at least 2 orphaned children who came to Huntsburg to live with Scott and Clapp families there.
