Maria Lawson Scott, only child of Thomas and Mary, died september 30, 1831 at Cadiz OH. The family of three is buried in the Crab Apple Church Cemetery, Belmont County, OH. Epitaph on the tomstone of Maria L. Scott: While the dear dust she leaves behind Sleeps in they bosom, sacred clay Soft be her bed, her slumber kind Until her happy rising day.
