Lorenzo Dow SCOTT, son of Nathaniel SCOTT & Mary Ann BRANNEN, was born 1 MAY 1822 in Screven County, Georgia, and died 28 AUG 1864 in a Union Army Hospital, Dalton, Georgia. Scott was mortally wounded near Dalton, Georgia on 19 Aug 1864, and died 28 Aug 1864. He was hit in the right ileum, and the bullet lodged in his intestines. From family legend, his manservant, a Negro named July, pulled him from the affray to underneath a tree, and then later took him to a Union Post Hospital, where Dow later died. July supposedly walked back to Screven County from North Georgia to let the family know what happened. He had a marked grave in the Union Cemetery in Dalton, but the United Daughters of the Confederacy tried to re-inter the remains of several hundred of these soldiers into the Confederate Cemetery at Resaca, but managed to get the remains mixed up. Hence, Dow is now in an unknown grave. He married Jane Ann Catherine GRINER 7 OCT 1847 in Screven County, Georgia, daughter of William Jacob GRINER and Elizabeth SPOONER.
