s/o James and Nancy White Scott, married Armenda Cook in 1858.
James Scott's 2nd wife was actually Martha Jane (Sharp) Stanley. Her first husb. Henry Stanley died in 1865. I am not sure if the Shepherd name was a mistake or she mar. someone with that name after Henry Stanley's death and bef. she mar. James Scott. Pleasant Scott is the son of James Scott & Martha Sharp according to birth index.
