Thanks for the reply. Can't imagine why I never made the connection that these 2 were the same person. I had all the information in front of me, but it never clicked. As for the Scott/Covington name, I have found John Scott Covington listed several times as John Covington Scott and his widow listed at least once as Huldah Scott. Thomas Calvit was her third husband. She first married a John Vanderwall/Van Derwal. Her maided name was Huldah Osborn, sister to my ggg Grandfather, Ichabod Osborn. I am presently seeking descendants of Osborn, Samuel, Thomas, and William Scott to add to the decendants of Samuel Osborn. an early SW. Miss settler.
