  1. May be related-my great-grandmother was Susan Belle Scott and Ulysses Grant Scott would be her father’s brother. Do you have any other information?

    • Cathy, I have checked and the only information I have is on Ulysses Grant Scott, his marriage to Miranda Tatum and his two children, Myrtle and Birtice. I do know Ulysses was buried in Everygreen Cemetery in Washington County, Kentucky. Just checked the 1870 census for WC, James Scott, 30, is listed with wife Hester, 22, and children – Charles, 5, James, 4, and Ulysses, 2/12. In the WC marriages is James H. Scott married Hester A. Hungate February 6, 1862. In the 1860 WC census is Charles Hungate, 51, with wife Sarah, 40, James, 19, Joh, 16, Hester A., 15, Nancy C., 13, Mark, 10, Sterline, 8, meritt, 6, Ruth E., 4 and Sarah, 1. Also in the 1860 WC census is Eliza Scott, 45, with sons James, 22, Henry, 18, Asher, 16, and Henson, 12. In the 1850 WC census Elizabeth is a widow with the same four sons plus daughter Nancy R., 14. Sarah Carsey, aged 80, born in Delaware lives with them. I hope this helps!
