  A record shows Alexander may have been born in Westmoreland County, instead of Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania. When children in Pennsylvania, Alexander, and his brother and sister, lost their father. Their mother, Jane Ramsey Scott, took the children west to Kentucky, where they were were reared to adulthood. Alexander learned the trade of wheelwright, which he followed in connection with farming. One record shows Alexander Scott marrying Martha "Wells" 25 Dec 1821 in Fleming Co, KY. NEW HOPE CHURCH RECORDS, Fleming County, Kentucky record the birth of Alexander and Martha Wills Scott's first son, David Hamilton Scott, 27 June 1825. We assume Fleming County is where the couple was married. With no date, the same record shows "Alexander and Martha Scott removed to to Indiana." It also says: JOHN SCOTT, SR. received May 4, 1828; JOHN SCOTT, JR. received Jan 31 1829, removed to Indiana (Source: Tom Strahan, Kansas City, MO, 1993) In 1826, Alexander and Martha moved to Putnam County, Indiana, "locating in the midst of a forest. They lived in a camp until a log cabin could be erected and there the family experienced the usual hardships and trials of pioneer life.." April 2, 1829, Alexander and Martha Wills Scott were received by letter in the Presbyterian Church near Waveland, Montgomery County, Indiana. One of the first three baptisms in the church was for a Scott infant, probably John Milton Scott. 1840 U.S. CENSUS (Roll 91, p. 397): Russell Township, Putnam Co., Indiana; ALEXANDER SCOTT; 9 people in household; 6 males (1/40-50, 1/15-20, 1/10-15, 2/5-10, 1 under 5); 3 females (1/30-40, 1/5-10, 1 under 5; 3 employed in agriculture; 1 in manufactures & trades On or near the same 1840 Census page were these five families: SAMUEL STRAHAM(N); 4 people in household; 1 female (20-30); 3 males (1/50-60, 1/20-30, 1/10-15); 1 in manufactures and trades MARGRATT WILLS; 5 people in household; 4 females (1/60-70, 3/30-40); 1 male (5-10); 2 insane & idiots at private charge DAVID RAMSEY; 7 people in household; 4 females (1/30-40, 1/15-20, 2/under 5); 3 males (1/40-50, 1/15-20, 1/10-15) WILLIAM B. RAMSEY JOHN SCOTT; 5 people in household; 2 females (1/20-30, 1 under 5); 3 males (1/20-30, 2 under 5) Alexander and Martha apparently lived near Russellville, on the northern border of Putnam County, while their Presbyterian church was 4 miles away in Waveland, Montgomery County. [Waveland may be in Park County.] Alexander is recalled in the autobiography of his son, Alexander M. Scott: "I remember my father as one of the most modest men I ever knew...I Remember when father helped organize a Presbyterian Church in our neighborhood and he was elected its first ruling Elder...he had been a praying man all his life and kept up family worship so long as he had a family of his own about him." Alexander died at age 82. He and both his wives (and one of Alexander M. Scott's grandmothers, Margaret Jamison Wills or Jane Ramsey Scott, are buried in the Old Cecedar Presbyterian Graveyard, on the hills a mile north of Portland Mills, Indiana, where the old church stood for many years. The cemetery is maintained as a neighborhood landmark. [Br�derbund WFT European Origins Vol. E1, Ed. 1, Tree #0447, Date of Import: Dec 30, 2003]
