Shared note

Per Egle (p. 215): James Scott was "connected with Mrs. James McFarland, and bought part of the McFarland lands." He was born "above Big Chickies" in the vicinity of Donegal.

Per Egle (p. 230): He

Per the Gradual Emancipation Act of 1780, and subsequent acts, James Scott registered a negro child Lucy at the Dauphin County Clerk of Courts on October 30, 1788. Lucy was therefore to remain a slave until age 28. (See "History of Dauphin County" source.)

He appears in the Derry Township, Dauphin County tax lists for most years 1785 through 1806. For 1813 through 1814 his name appears as "James Scott, dec'd." For 1815 through 1821, his name appears as "James Scott heirs."

He died intestate. His Dauphin County estate settlement records begin in 1807 and end in 1825.
