  David Scott was the eldest son of John Scott, a first generation settler. He served in the Army for 7 years, earning the rank of Captain. Upon his father John's death, David inherited the family farm on Marsh Creek, just below Gettysburg. The land was called "The Plantation Rosenhill." It was later known as the "Pascoe Farm" on the Battlefield of Gettysburg. His marriage to Jane Ramsey was his second. The Linn family source said he was born in 1740. That is doubtful. (Pennsylvania Archives, 6th Series, Vol 2, pp. 509, 590, 1455) In 1779, David Scott was an Ensign, 2d Company, 4th Batallion, York County Militia. In 1783, he was Lieutenant in the 7th Company, 4th Battalion. In 1786, he was Captain in the same 7th Company. David Scott sold the old farm below Gettysburg in 1790 and moved to Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania. His son, John, went with him. He and his second wife, Jane Ramsey, married about 1793 and moved to Huntingdon County about 1800. He may have died in Huntingdon County, but it is not certain. Records may be in in Harrisburg or Pittsburgh. After he died, Jane took the children west across the mountains to Kentucky, where she died. In the 1st U.S. Census, there is a David Scott in Huntingdon County, with two males "15<" and three "<16". A Thomas Scott lived nearby or in the same home. Matilda Daugherty Linn's DAR application had a note returned on it, suggesting David's birthdate was "about 1760."
