I would like to locate someone researching this SCOUT family to find out if there is any further ancestral information that could be shared on the ancestors of this Morris Scout.I believe his father was Thomas SCOUT.There could be another different Morris C. SCOUT of NY.

I have Civil War Pension file for Thomas Scout, 118th PA Inf., Co. A., enlisted Aug 1862 as Corporal, was discharged near Washington DC, June 1, 1865.
In brief, Thomas Scout was last married to Rachel Nicole or Nicols MAHONE, in Nov 1878 in Philadelphia. He had 3 children by his first wife and 1 by his 2nd wife, who appears to be Rachel. His 1st wife Elizabeth HOWITZ died May 1876. The pension application deposition is dated August, 1899. Thomas is 56 years old. The 1st child's name is almost illegible, but is 39 years old in 1899. Upon close inspection it does appear that it is Morris Scout, but I could be wrong.There is a son Thomas age 37 in 1899, married daughter, Elizabeth BURGESS, age 32 and daughter Frances Scout, age 19. Thomas appears to be located primarily in Philadelphia and Pension Application states an address as 453 Dunfor St., Philadelphia, PA.
I believe this is the son of Thomas Scout in the Census Microfilm Records: New York, 1900
Lived in: 23 Ward Brooklyn Borough, Kings County, New York
Series: T623 Microfilm: 1060 Book: 2 Page: 303
On 483 Lexington Avenue
