INTRODUCTORY. 



In this little publication is presented the genealogical record of 
the descendants of Thomas Scott and Sarah Hale. It is necessarily 
incomplete in some of the later generations, though I believe, in 
names at least, it contains every member of the family in the older 
generations, except possibly some who died in infancy and were 
known only in original family Bibles. In the later generations I 
believe it to be fairly complete as to names, to within the last 
twenty years, and wherever the data was available I have carried 
it down to the present day. With sufficient time, labor and expense 
it could be completed in full to date, but as it is, it represents infinite 
labor and considerable time and money. I feel that I have done my 
part, and there is no copyright on the publication. I not only give 
permission, but request any interested member of any branch of the 
family to use any part of it desirable in the compiling of a complete 
record of his family, or all of it should any be so ambitious as to 
undertake a complete genealogy of the whole family. All I ask is 
that any person so availing himself, send me a copy of his publication 
for my personal edification. In the presentation of this data I have 
tried to be accurate and I think with good success, though it is 
altogether likely some errors appear. This is due to the fact that 
my data has been gathered from correspondence. People do not 
always write legibly and the persons furnishing the information may 
have been careless in transcribing it from old records, as I may have 
been in some of the many times I have found it necessary to write 
and rewrite, in the evolution of the method I adopted for keeping my 
data properly classified. The frequent recurrence of the same name 
in different families made necessary the most careful systematizing 
to prevent confusion. 

In conclusion I wish to acknowledge at this time my obligations 
to every one of the scores who have aided me in this work in one 
way or another. While it may have seemed a little thing at the 
time to answer a letter enclosing a few dates, this publication is but 
a compilation of those little things. Those who have rendered favors 
are too numerous to mention by name, but there are a few whose 
efforts in my behalf were not only invaluable but were made at 
great personal inconvenience or labor. I first wish to speak of my 
mother's mother, Mrs. Hannah Niles, who, though not a member of 
the Scott family, gave me the primary historical outline which was 
the basis of my work. She lived in childhood in Vermont, the geo- 
graphical home of the Scott family. Her wonderful memory and 
long observation gave me many facts when most needed. This best 
of women was born February 7, 1802, and died in Burlingame Kansas, 
at the age of 100 years one month and thirteen days, at the home 
of her daughter, Mrs. C. E. Wood, who with her husband also 
afforded me early inspiration. To Joseph Elliott Harris, who died 
in New York not many years ago, I am indebted for a great portion 
of the record of the Harris branch. To D. Q. Woodruff of St. Jonhs- 
bury, Vermont, I am under obligations largely for the record of the 
branch of the family to which he belongs, and the same is true of 



Rev. Charles Scott of Reading, Mass.; Leslie Scott of New York 
city, formerly Brattleboro, and Miss Julia Ann Scott of Mount 
Lebanon, N. T. There are many others, old and young, but the list 
is too long to enumerate and the word must be accepted for the 
deed. 

In presenting the pictures of D. Q. Woodruff and Rev. Charles 
Scott the reader is permitted to view the likeness of fitee two men 
of whom the family should be proud; not for notable achievements, 
for l have found few in my researches who have become "great" 
in the eyes of the world, but for their strength of character and 
exemplary lives as the real types of the Scott family. It also pleases 
me to say that if black sheep have found record in these pages 
their deeds have utterly escaped my knowledge and I could wish to 
have my name appear in no more reputable company than a Scott 
genealogy. 

My own picture is presented at the earnest request of a few and 
to satisfy the possible curiosity of others. 

C. S. SCOTT.

HOW TO FIND YOURSELF. 



The scheme on which this record is compiled is as follows: 

All data I have secured regarding the progenitors of the family, 
Thomas Scott and Sarah Hale, together with all the data I have 
obtained relative to their immediate children, is found in Chapter I. 

Chapter II is devoted to the record of all the descendants of their 
eldest child, Clarissa. 

Chapter III is devoted to the record of all the descendants of 
their second child, Thomas, Jr. 

Chapter IV is devoted to the record of the descendants of the 
third child, and so on to the end. 

There are few people who do not know the name of their grand- 
father and their great grandfather. There are few members of the 
family old enough to read this book who cannot And the name of 
either their father, grandfather or great grandfather or his wife, 
as the case may be, somewhere in the last column of the diagram 
found on the preceding page. They will then know the chapter in 
which their individual record is found; the chapter devoted to their 
branch of the family. 

Every reader should peruse the first chapter and then if not 
interested in distant relatives, pass on to the chapter treating of 
his branch of the family. In the second and all subsequent chapters, 
the subject of each paragraph printed in full measure is a full 
cousin of the subject of every other paragraph printed in full meas- 
ure in other chapters and the brother or sister of the others in full 
measure in his own chapter. The first indention thereafter shows 
the next generation, the second indention the subsequent generation, 
etc., except in such cases as the information relative to later gener- 
ations was so meager it was included in the record of the parents. 

ILLUSTRATION: My father's name is Henry, my grandfather's 
name was Asahel, as also was my great grandfather's. I read the 
first chapter, then find the name of my grandfather in the last 
column of the diagram, which directs me to chapter VI for the 
later history of my branch of the family. 

It should be further noted that there is a frequent repetition 
of names, some appearing in different families in the same or other 
generations. Clarissa, for instance, appears in nearly every family 
in the last column of the diagram. In that event the reader can 
discover by noting the names of her brothers or sisters, which iB 
the Clarissa sought for. 



CHAPTER I. 

The earliest knowledge of Thomas Scott, that I have been able 
to secure, is purely traditional. I began work upon the genealogical 
record set forth in the following pages in 1882, and it was related to 
me then by the older members of the family and by others of con- 
temporaneous time, that some time between the years 1750 and 1755 
Thomas Scott was kidnaped at his home somewhere in England, 
taken on board a vessel bound for America for the purpose of 
preventing him from inheriting a fortune of greater or lesser amount, 
and that on his arrival in New England he was bound out for a 
term of years by the master of the ship who desired in that way to 
remunerate himself for the expense of the lad's voyage over. 

The first authentic record of the young man's career was origi- 
nally secured from the town clerk of Ashford, Windham county. 
Connecticut, and relates that Thomas Scott, who was born in 1744, 
and Sarah Hale, who was born in 1748, were joined in marriage 
February 16, 1769. Thomas Scott at the same time received a deed 
to six acres of land from John Hale, presumably his father-in-law, 
and one John Scott witnessed the deed. 

This information was furnished to me by one of the members 
of the Scott family with whom I was in correspondence when 1 
began my work. 

In the summer of 1781 Thomas Scott and wife moved to Halifax, 
Vermont, where they raised a family of ten children and spent the 
rest of their lives, supposedly, as Thomas Scott died there June 3, 
1802, and was buried in Halifax Center. His wife died February 
27th, 1805. The farm in Halifax on which they settled passed in 
ownership to their son, Abel, then to Martin Scott, then to George 
M. Scott and son Myrten H., who now lives upon it. 

The names of the children of Thomas Scott were Clarissa, 
Thomas, Abel, Sally, Asahel, Joel, James, Henry, Elijah and Ruby. 
The exact order of their birth is a matter of doubt, as different 
records give different dates for some of them. My grandmother on 
my mother's side, Mrs. Samuel Niles, born in 1802, and familiar with 
the early history of the Scott family, tells me it was a matter of 
general belief among those with whom she was acquainted that 
Asahel Scott was the oldest child. I have also seen one record in 
which his birth is recorded as having occurred July 2, 1768, but 
which, if true, would suggest an embarrassing situation, as the 
record of his father's marriage is some seven months later. Another 
record announces the birth of Joel on July 26, 1779, while still another 
records the birth of Abel October 9, 1779. Both cannot be right. But 
some order must be observed, and after the most diligent search 



I have been able to make I have adopted the following order as a 
basis of work, using the undisputed dates given and placing the 
others in accordance with the explanation that follows: 

Clarissa, born 1770; Thomas, December 23, 1772; Abel, October 9, 
1774; Sally, 1776; Asahel, July 2, 1778; Joel, July 26, 1779; James, Octo- 
ber 26, 1781; Henry, November 23, 1783; Elijah, 1785; Ruby, 1788. 

In placing the birth of Asahel in the year 1778 instead of 1768, 
as one record gives it, thus making him the fifth child instead of 
the first, my reasons are simply that the date of the birth of Clarissa 
seems undisputed, it is possible that in either the recording or the 
reading of the record of the birth of Asahel the third figure may 
have been taken for a 6 when a 7 was intended or actually written. 
Further, between 1774 and 1779 there is no authentic record of the 
birth of any of the children and Sally is said by some to have been 
born after Elijah, a statement not at all improbable. During the 
five years from '74 to '79 the birth of two children might have oc- 
curred without a violation of natural law. I think it highly probable 
therefore that Asahel was born in '78 and at any rate have given 
him the benefit of the doubt. 

As for Sally it is in a measure immaterial as she had but one 
child and of her descendants, if any, I have been able to learn abso- 
lutely nothing. Of the life and achievements of Thomas Scott. Sr., 
I have learned nothing in addition to the above. 

SECOND GENERATION. 

CLARISSA Scott was born in Ashford, Conn., in 1770. In 1790 she 
was married to Joshua Harris, son of Job Harris, who moved with 
his family from New London, Conn., to Halifax in 1789. To the union 
of Clarissa Scott and Joshua Harris were born ten children, all in 
Halifax. Their names were Lydia, Lucy, Clarissa, Samuel, Ebe- 
nezer, Joshua, Joel, Reuben, Eunice and Joseph Elliott. To the latter, 
who died but a few years ago, I am indebted largely for the record 
I have of the Harris branch of the Scott family. Joshua Harris, Sr.. 
died in Halifax, Vt., July 3, 1837. His wife, Clarissa, died of palsy 
September 22, 1833, in Halifax. 

THOMAS Scott, Jr., was born in Ashford, Conn., December 23, 
1772. He moved with his parents to Halifax, Vt., where he married 
Ann Carpenter and by whom he had three children. Two died in 
infancy and the third, Anna, grew to womanhood. Ann Carpenter 
Scott died October 28, 1806, and Thomas Scott was married in Lyn- 
don, Vt., by Rev. Phineas Peck, to Abigail Winslow, who was born 
November 28, 1784 in Sandwich, N. H. They had eight children — 
Sally, Phineas, Cynthia, Mary, Betsy Angeline, Henry James, 
Clarissa Jane, and Horatio Plumb. Abigail died August 12, 1849 in 
Burke, Vt., and Thomas died and was buried in the same place 
February 6, 1851. 

ABEL Scott, according to one record that was furnished me, and 
is asserted to be correct, was born in Ashford, Conn., October 9, 1774. 
He went to Halifax with his parents, where in 1796 he was married 
to Polly Cook, who was born in 1772. They had three children- 
Reuben, Freeman and Emily. Polly died March 20, 1805. (One rec- 
ord says 1808.) Abel then married Lydia Crozier, October 3 of the 
same year, 1805. Lydia was born in Halifax, June 29, 1777. Eight 
children were born to them — Polly, Cynthia, Sally, Lyman, Lydia, 
Martin, Abel and Reuben. Abel senior spent his whole life on the 
land taken up by his father when the family moved from Ashford 
to Halifax, and died and was buried in Halifax, May 25, 1856. His 



second wife, Lydla, died in Halifax, September 21, 1872. It is said 
that Abel served as captain in the army, probably in the war of 1812. 

SALLY Scott was born, probably in Ashford, Conn., in 1776, 
moving with the family to Halifax. She married Samuel Crozier 
after which she lived but a few years, dying in Halifax, May 12, 1809, 
of palsy. They had but one child, Maria, and of her or her possible 
descendants I have learned nothing. 

ASAHEL Scott was born in Ashford, Conn., July 2, 1778, according 
to the record I have accepted, though another record says July 2, 1768. 
He moved to Halifax in 1781 and married Elizabeth Peck, who was 
born in New Hampshire, August 29, 1772. The date of their marriage 
is unknown. In 1810 they moved to East Smithfield, Bradford 
county, Pa., then practically a wilderness, settled on a farm and 
raised a family of eight children — Linda, Ansel, Celia, Asahel, Eliza, 
Aaron Culver, Elmina and Benjamin Peck. Asahel senior died 
December 29, 1823, in East Smithfield, and his wife died May 10, 1847, 
in Springfield, Bradford county, Pa. After the death of Asahel 
senior the farm came into the possession of Asahel junior, who 
retained it till late in the '60s, when he sold out to a cousin, 
Orrin Scott, and it is now in the possession of one of his children, 
having been owned by some member of the family continuously for 
nearly a hundred years. 

JOEL Scott, the last member of the family born in Ashford, 
Conn., first saw the light July 26, 1779. He went to Vermont with his 
parents but must have returned to Connecticut when a young man, 
for January 14, 1805, he was married in Manchester, Conn., to 
Clarissa Risley, who was born in Manchester, July 7, 1780. They 
settled down in Halifax and to the union were born Ruby, Orrin, 
Susan R., Oliver W. and Clarissa M. Clarissa senior died in Halifax 
June 7, 1822. May 27, 1823, Joel was married in Halifax to Elizabeth 
Hall, who was born July 7, 1783, in Somers, Conn. They had one 
child, named Charles. Joel died in Halifax, July 28, 1849, also on the 
same land secured by his father when the family moved from 
Ashford. Elizabeth, his second wife, died in Gloucester, R. I., March 
16, 1875, and was taken to Halifax for interment beside her husband. 
Joel, it is said, was a captain in the American army, but whether 
in the war of 1812 or the French and Indian war I am not informed. 

JAMES Scott, who also served his country in the army, gaining 
the rank of captain, was born in Halifax, October 26, 1781. April 12. 
1810, he was married to Clarissa Smith, who was born in Marlboro. 
Vt., July 23, 1787. Eleven children were born to them — Thomas, Jonas, 
Henry, Alson, Oshea, Clarissa, James Hale, Martin, Horace, Lucy 
Tucker, and Sarah Jane. Captain James Scott died in Halifax, May 
27, 1850, having spent his entire manhood on the farm he first settled 
upon in early life. His wife died in Brattleboro, March 31, 1879, in 
her ninety-second year. 

HENRY Scott was born November 23, 1783, in Halifax, Vt., and 
died in Waterville, Me., September 20, 1859. He was buried in Athens, 
Me. His wife, Sarah Jones, was born October 18, 1785, in North 
Yarmouth, Me., and died in Athens, Me., February 18, 1876. They 
were married in North Yarmouth, Me., October 8, 1807. Their chil- 
dren were Elizabeth Hobart, Sarah Ann, Mary Hale, Sarah Maria, 
David Henry, Clarissa Ruby and Henry Milton. 

ELIJAH Scott was born in Halifax, Vt., September 4, 1785. 
Betsy Woodward was born April 19, 1788. They were married Feb- 
ruary 5, 1807, and settled in Bennington, of revolutionary fame. Their 
children were Diana, Julia Ann, Freeman, Elijah, Jr., Chester. 
Betsey, Timothy, Alvin, Timothy 2nd, Abel, Samuel, Ruth and Julia 



Ann 2nd. Elijah senior died in North Bennington, Vt., December 
3, 1840, and was buried in Shaftsbury, "Vt. Betsy, his wife, died in 
Mount Lebanon, N. Y., in the Shaker settlement, August 31, 1863, and 
wag buried in Shaftsbury, Vt. 

RUBY Scott, the third daughter and youngest child of Thomas 
and Sarah Scott, was born in Halifax in 1788. She died while yet 
a young woman, succumbing March 9, 1805, to palsy, of which both 
her sisters died and which seems to have been a family disease. 
She died and was buried in Halifax, and so far as I can learn was 
never married.

Lebanon with the family in 1841, but evidently returned from the 
Shaker settlement, for September 26, 1853. she married Daniel B. 
Briggs. In 1888 their permanent residence was West Winfield, Herk- 
imer county, N. Y., though Ruth was traveling and lecturing the 
greater part of the time. They had four children — Hattie M., Eliza

JULIA ANN Scott, the 2nd, thirteenth and last child of Elijah 
and Betsey Scott, was born May 4, 1829, in North Bennington, Vt. 
She went to Mount Lebanon, N. Y., in 1841, espousing the Shaker 
faith, to which she adhered through life. In 1902 she still lived at 
Mount Lebanon and was the only resident of the settlement bearing 
the name of Scott. I am indebted to her for much of the information 
here furnished relative to the family of Elijah Scott.
