County. On the place where he lives he was born, in the year 1827; his parents, Jonathan and Nancy (English) Scott, were born in New Jersey, where they grew to manhood and womanhood and were married. In 1819, they, with their two children, William and Mary A., came to Ohio and settled on the land where their son Thomas now resides; this land was entered by Jonathan Scott, Sr., who, however, never came to Ohio. Until 1835, Jonathan, Jr., lived upon this land, at which time he removed to Turtle Creek Township, where he lived till his death, which occurred in 1841. Mrs. Scott departed this life in 1877, at the advanced age of 82 years. To them were born eleven children, eight of whom are living. viz., William; Mary A., now Mrs. Winterrowd; Samuel, Joseph, Thomas; Eliza J., now Mrs. Robbins; Levi. and Susan, now Mrs. Bradley; the deceased are Maria (Mrs. Hamilton), Asa and George. Our subject was reared to farm pursuits and in the district schools, and, through studious habits, he obtained enough of the indispensable to enable him to successfully discharge the demands of business complications. In 1854, he was married to Mary C., daughter of William and Mary Bunnell, early settlers of Warren Co., Ohio; for one year after his marriage, he lived in Turtle Creek Township, after which he located on the place that has since been his dwelling-place. They are parents of three children, two living, viz., Wallace and Thomas B.; William, deceased. Mr. Scott, with the exception of belonging to the Mason Horse Bangers, is connected with no other society. He owns 175 acres of most excellent land, and his surroundings indicate the thrift and enterprise of the owner.
