Joseph SCOTT (1793-1866) and Mary (1797-?)


Joseph Scott was born about 1793 in England.  On December 13, 1831 he immigrated from London, England to New York with his wife, Mary, and their children.  They arrived on the ship "Florida".  Joseph was listed as a farmer.

We have found no marriage records.  Joseph and Mary had eight children.  They included Joseph, Maria, Gabriel, William, Mary, Alice, Elizabeth and John.  John was born in New York.  The other children were on the ship's manifest as born in England.

In July 1850, Joseph appeared on the US Census.  He was living in Lockport, NY and was a clerk.  We, also, found Joseph on the NYS 1855 Census.  He was a farmer.  On the 1860 US Census, Joseph was a farmer living with his son, Gabriel and Gabriel's family in Lockport, NY.  The NYS 1865 Census listed Joseph as a widow and now retired.  He was still living with his son, Gabriel.

Joseph Scott died August 24, 1866 in Lockport, NY.  He was 73-years old.  He was buried in Grace Church Burying Ground.  The cemetery was moved in the late 1920's to Glenwood Cemetery.

We do not know too much about Mary.  We have no maiden name for her.  According to the ship manifest, she was 34-years old and born in England.  That would make her born in 1797.  We did not find Mary on any census reports.  Her last child was born in 1834.  Apparently, she died between 1834 and the 1850 census report.

This will conclude the Scott line.
