I do not know how Mary Louellyn Scott's father, Gabriel Marion Scott, connected to my Scott group...I'm just sure he did, putting all my information together.
The earliest known Scott from my line that I know of for sure is a REV. JOHN SCOTT who was born in KY.We're guessing sometime in the 1780s.He supposedly married Mary Polly "DeMoss" in Fleming Co. about 1810....but I haven't limited my search just to Fleming Co.He did named one of his sons Greenup...don't know if that had to do with Greenup Co, KY or if it was a family surname.
There's a chance Polly DeMoss was his 2nd wife...based on my own speculating.I've seen an entry that a John D. Scott md. Polly Christal/Crystal.My John named his oldest son Christal/Crystal David Wm. Scott....but I will work on his marriages later.
I have not made progress in identifying John Scott's parents; however, thanks to the Y-DNA tests, we now know who some of the Scott men were in John's group of ancestors in early America.
I descend from John's son, Rev. Flemmon Scott.John named a son Gabriel Marion Scott.Flemmon named a son Gabriel Marion Scott.Greenup and Crystal did to.
From the births of John Scotts children, we can see that he left KY and landed in IL about 1818.Flemmon and one of his brothers were born in IL.After that, they moved to the Cass Co., IN area, being in Cass Co, and the surrounding counties.They stayed there throughout the 1830s and 1840s.
John died in 1847, and some of his children moved to Marshall Co, IL until their mother there died in 1851.
Their next step was to Harrison and Mercer Co, MO.Parmer and Greenup went for a while to IA.Flemmon went to Ozark Co, MO.Most all of his brothers moved to CA.
So far there have been 16 Y-DNA donor matches for John's group.That is considerable.Many given names for their Scott ancestors were provided by the donors.Gabriel was one of those given names in our group.
I don't know what port the earliest of our Scotts landed in, but they ended up in PA.From there they zig-zagged...VA, NC, KY, TN, OH, IN, IL...slowly westward.That amazes me as it's a long haul by car.I can't imagine what their journeys were like....esp. with small children and women.Even the boat ride to America had to be an ordeal.
As it goes, these men, too, used the same Christian names over and over for their sons.So many with the same names were also close in age.So I am assuming most all the Gabriels we find belong to our big Y-DNA group.
We may be getting the marriage of one mixed up with the marriage of his Scott cousin with the same given name.Our Scotts have not been an easy lot to separate in to their appropriate family groups.
I don't know where Mary Louellyn Scott's father fits in.I'm just certain he does.
If you aren't familiar with the Scott Y-DNA project, you might go to the website and view the names of ancestors for the donors from our group.Also, it helps seeing the Scott groups who do not match with ours in order to not waste your time searching through Scott families who weren't related.
Some of the given names for our group were John, Matthew, Andrew, Gabriel, Samuel, Milton, Marion, David, George, Jasper...and so on.
I picked the name Gabriel to track because I haven't found that given name with other Scott lines, and we have a number of them in John's descendants.
In the 1820 IL census records, there was a Gabriel and a John Scott in Edward Co.That' another Gabriel. =============================
Would you tell me about James Offill killing his father and where, when, and why it happened?
