Birth: Oct. 17, 1891
Belgrade
Washington County
Missouri, USA
Death: Mar. 21, 1946
Poplar Bluff
Butler County

Scott (my paternal grandfather) was a son of Lafayette and Alice Louisiana Love Alcorn and had 6 siblings:

Lola Alcorn Buntin (1886-1968)
Roy Anvil Alcorn (1887-1962)
Clyde S. (1889-1939)
Ora (1893-1908)
Myrtle (died as either an infant or toddler) (189?-189?)
Loven (also died as either an infant or toddler) (189?-189?)

Scott married Delia Ann Box on June 3, 1911 and had 9 children: Mildred Pauline (b. 1912), Cecil Clyde (b. 1915), Percy Eugene (b. 1917), Ernest Merton (b. 1920), Scottie Lafayette (b. 1923), Roy Anvil (b. 1925), Walter Ray (b. 1928), Donald Lee (b. 1931) and Billy Joe (b. 1934). The family lived in Ellsinore, MO.

Scott was very entrepreneurial and tried his hand at various businesses before co-owning the Ellsinore Mercantile Company with his father in 1915 until it burned in 1924. He was also connected to the Bank of Ellsinore, but I have heard he was extremely upset when he was suspected of being involved in a robbery of that bank in 1918. However, he was never formally accused.

I know very little about his later years. My dad said he visited him in the hospital shortly before his death, and Scott seemed to make peace with his life before dying.
