Notes Information provided by the research of Lawrence J Willis and Joyce Collins: taken from a letter from Lawrence J Willis, dated July 6, 1999:
"....Joyce Collins has made a breakthrough in the search for information about John Scrimager. She went to Frankfurt and found an Article of Agreement signed by John Scrimager and Jared Cowan. Both men lived at that time (1787) in Salisbury Township, Lancaster County (later Somerset Co.,) Pennsylvania. She saw some mention of Mercer County, Kentucky, and since she was near that county, drove to the county seat. There she found the marriage record of John Scrimager and Phebe Kezee. They were married August 11, 1799. She also read the 1800 Census for Mercer County, KY. and found the couple living there. John signed his name."
John Scrimager was shown to have lived in Barren County, Kentucky as early as February 1814, when a ruling of the Barren County Court ordered that it be certified that John Scrimager is entitled to 200 acres of land in this county satisfactory proof being aduced that he was settled on said land prior to February 1814. This information was taken from "Order Book #4 Barren County, Kentucky May Court 1812, August Court 1818".
