Chatter Day on Saturday
I am going to just ramble around on many things I think.
Having not had much time to just expound on things I think it is about time.
First, having received a note from a distant SCOTT cousin that was a happy dance
Here is some of what she said.
Saw your post on Ancestry, but it goes back to Dec 6, 1999.
Dallas E. Scott, son of John and Rebecca, was my g grand father. He married,
Eliza Helen Van Cleave, daughter of Hiram and Mary N. (?) possibly Carter, on June 28, 1868.
Eliza was born Jan 1,1849 Iowa
d. July 2, 1921 (72 yr) Ottumwa, Iowa at Shaul Cemetery.
Dallas was born in 1846 in Iowa (Brother to your Cornelius Franklin)
They had 4 daughters
1) Minnie Bell Scott b. March 9, 1880 Grant City, Mo (my grandmother)
d. April 14, 1955 Cedar Rapids, Iowa (buried at Shaul Cemetery, Ottumwa, Iowa
md. (May 2, 1907) John Ira LaBelle b. June 15, 1880 Ottumwa, Iowa
d. Feb 21, 1952 Cedar Rapids, Iowa
buried at Shaul Cemetery, Ottumwa, Iowa
2) Mary E. (Ella) Scott b. 1871 - 1925 md unknown Giles. Buried at Shaul Cemetery, Ottumwa, Iowa.
3) Rebecca A. (Annie/Anna) 1872 - d. May 25,1953 (81) md (Dec 9, 1891) Otis E. Harrow 1871-1929 Both at Shaul Cemetery in Ottumwa, Iowa
4) Inez M 1883 - d. April 8,1957 md Charles Toole (1881 - 1945) Both at Shaul Cemetery, Ottumwa, Iowa.
For the 1880 US Federal Census, Dallas, Eliza, Mary E, Rebecca A and Minnie B. were living in Fletchall, Worth, Missouri.
I was told by my cousin, that Dallas had up and left his family. 1900 US Fed census he was still listed as married. 1910 listed in Ringgold Co., Iowa single also for 1920 in Ringgold (mother and father, Cornelius F, Druscilla, James & Harriet are in Ringgold and on find-a- grave). I don't know where Dallas went to, or buried.
If you have any info on Dallas, I would greatly appreciate it.
I just started attacking the Scott lineage. With them having 4 girls, it sure doesn't go very far!! LOL
Hope to hear from you.
So we are looking for where Dallas Scott died and is buried and if there is any more kin out there we are not aware of.
