The 1880 Zaleski,Vinton Co., Ohio Census shows Thomas Scott age 49 born PA(1831) Emily Scott wife 46 born OH(1834) Ira Scott son 17 born OH(1863) Elizabeth Scott dau 13 born OH(1867) Marietta Scott Dau 11 born OH(1869) William T. Scott son 9 born OH(1871) Virgil Scott son 3 born OH(1877)
Could someone please advise where to look for birth records in Vinton Co. I"m hoping to find out what Emilys maiden name is and if she is the parent of all the children mentioned above. I beleive that Thomas was married to Phoebe Drake of Athens OH before Emily. Phoebe may have died abt. 1863 after the birth of Ira.I believe that Thomas married both women in Athens OHO. Also Emily may have been married before and had children. She may be the Emily Clutter with a daughter Celestia in Athens Ohio. Were they adopted by Thomas?
It is of great interest to me as at this point I don't know if Emily or Phoebe is my gggrandmother. Thanks for any help. Marsha Scott Petrie
