Death: Jul. 18, 1882

Rebecca Elizabeth Samuels was the daughter of John and Delila Hawkins Samuels. Elizabeth married Arthur Martin Scott on December 23, 1813 and had the following children: Susan (1816 - 1905), Lucinda, Ferdinand, Nancy Meneway, Sally, Franklin Martin, Elizabeth Liza, Alexander, Julia Ann, Henry Harrison, Sharlota, Cleopatria, Mary and Elenor.

"Rebecca Elizabeth Scott died July 18, 1882, en route west by covered wagon with some members of her family. She is buried in a mountain canyon in the vicinity of Durango, Colorado. On top of her grave was placed a number of stones to protect it from desecration, and her grandson, William Henry, securing a hammer and a large spike nail from the wagon box chiseled her name, date of her birth and death on a sandstone which he placed on top of the crude burial mound."
