History of Muscatine County Iowa, Biographical Section, 1879, page 680

GARRET V. SCOTT, retired; residence Sixth st., Wilton; was born in Bucks Co., Penn., December, 1800.

At the age of 22, he married MARTHA, daughter of William SISSON and Amy Brilsford, themselves and ancestors being natives of Bucks Co., as far back as is known; they settled in Bucks Co.; engaged in farming until April, 1872, at which time they came to Muscatine to spend the remainder of their days among the children, who had previously settled here.

Mr. and Mrs. Scott had eight children, seven still living;
Samuel, born Dec. 2, 1825, became an eminent physician of Wilton, and died in the 49th year of his age;
Amy, born April 11, 1827, is the wife of Cortland Gilkeson, a farmer of Lake Tp;
Garret A., born June 11, 1831, a farmer of Sweetland Center;
Martha A., born July 27, 1835, the wife of John Johnson, a merchant of Hulmeville, Penn.;
Sarah M., born Jan. 8, 1838, the wife of Wm. Minster of this city;
Hettie J., Oct 8, 1840, the wife of Jacob H. Lukens, Principal of Schools in Muscatine;
Henry W., born Aug. 30, 1843, a merchant of this city,
and Ella L., born Aug 15, 1847, the wife of Daniel F. Tyson, a farmer near Wilton.

Very soon after their marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Scott adopted the religious views embodied in the M. E. Church, and remain to this day constant and sincere workers with that body of Christians, and have reared their children in the same faith, all of whom were members of the same Church, and still remain except Mrs. Gilkeson, who, after her marriage, joined the Congregational Church with her husband.
