.         inconsistent with their childrens' place of birth - Scotland.  Their children John and Elizabeth were raised by Thomas and Mar-
.         garet Bines, who took them west, when they moved to Mount Hope, Washington Co, Pa.

.           Note:  Info on the ancestry of John Scott, b ca 1762, comes solely from the references, below, which have more details.  Richard
.                      Scott's father's name of "John" came from the source listed on his page, but no original documentation.  Apparently the
.                      info on the family and ancestry of John Scott, b ca 1762, was passed down through his son David to his descendants, who
.                      include Nathan Bay Scott, b 1842, who was an educated man, and US Senator from WVa, and likely to have known and pre-
.                      served this type of information for his descendants.  If it wasn't Nathan himself, then his close relatives and descendants did
.                      it, as relatives of famous people frequently do.
