Birth: Jun. 10, 1774

Death: Aug. 26, 1863
Kalamazoo County
Michigan, USA

(a) Dates are approx and based upon documents and records from: census, church, deeds, grave markers, etc; updates are welcomed by this Scott Family history compiler.
(b) The nickname "Enos1" is used here to correlate the Family History compiled and published by descendants: James C. Fox, Dexter, Michigan, and many others.]

Enos Scott (Enos1) was the son of--
Mr. Scott
(born about 1745 Glasgow area, Scotland)
Member of "Scottish Harden Clan"
Mrs. Scott
(unknown birthdate/birthplace)

Enos Scott's (Enos1) father immigrated from Scotland to Penna Colony (Pennsylvania Colony, America/ USA) about 1760.

Enos Scott's (Enos1) parents married about 1770 in Penna Colony (Pennsylvania Colony, America/ USA)

Politics and Religion--
The Scott Family were very faithful and of the Quaker community (Friends Society) from the "Old Country".

After settling in the Penna Colony (Pennsylvania Colony America/USA), they again immigrated about 1790 from Penna to Ontario, Canada, especially to the Elgin and Middlesex Counties area. Land maps of that period have the SCOTT
surname applied to so many of the land plots. The township of Scottsville, Middlesex, Ontario, Canada, was named for the Scott Family prominence. (See: Westminister map in the Middlesex County Atlas of 1878, Ontario, Canada).

This move from Penna to Ontario, Canada, may have been in response to the attitudes of American Colonists in Penna after the Revolutionay War, since Enos Scott (Enos1) (and no doubt his father) were Quaker, and they did not participate in the War.

At their rest--
So many of the Scott Family have found
their rest in the historical cemeteries in Ontario, Canada:
Scottsville Cemetery, Scottsville, Middlesex County
Saint Thomas Church Cemetery, Elgin County Coldstream Society of Friends Cemetery (AKA Coldstream Cemetery, Friends Cemetery), Middlesex County
Bowman Cemetery, Ancaster Township
Sparta Friends Burial Ground, Elgin County
Deforrest Cemetery, Halton County

Enos Scott (Enos1) two marriages--
(1) Enos first marriage to--
On 3 Jun 1794 in Niagara,Ontario,Canada
Christine Bowman Scott (1775-1848)
(d/o Jacob Baumann/Bowman Junior
and Elizabeth Baumann/Bowman)

Children of this union--
Mary Scott Johnson McBee Schram (1795-before 1871)
John Amos Scott (1797-1897)
Charles Scott (1804-1880)
Jacob Scott (1806-?)
Anna Bertha Scott Osborn (1808-1887)
Adam Bowman Scott (1812-1872)
Enos Scott (1815-)
Jobe W Scott (1817-1893) [my 2nd great grandfather]

(2) Enos Scott (Enos1) second marriage to--
On 10 Sep 1848 in Watson Township, Allegan, Michigan
Bethiah Carpenter Osborn/Gilbert/Scott
(2 Aug 1784 VT - 28 Oct 1852 MI) [age 64; her 3rd marriage; d/o John Carpenter and Cynthia Brown Carpenter)

No children from this 'winter union'.

[NOTE: Christine died on 9 Sep 1848 Canada. Then Enos Scott (Enos1) married the very next day on 10 Sep 1848 to Bethiah in Michigan. This does not seem possible given the lack of telephones and airplanes in that timeframe. So there is a "mystery" about this next day wedding and what ever funeral and burial arrangements were made for Christine within the Quaker community.]

Bethiah Carpenter three marriages--
(1) At age 18, Bethiah married, on 6 Mar 1803 VT to Alexander Osborn (1779 Massachusetts-1820 Canada; age 23, s/o Alexander Osborn and Lucy Rockwell Osborn). They lived in many places. Alex was a carpenter and land surveyor. Supposedly Alex left his family to seek work in Canada and was to return as soon as he could obtain money for the family. A son of Alex and Bethiah went to find Alex when Alex failed to return within the expected time. The son was told that Alex had worked three days and fell from a high building that his father was working on and was killed in Halifax, Canada.

There were eleven children from the marriage of Alex and Bethiah. The first child of Alexander and Bethia was Elijah Carpenter Osborn (1803 NY-1882 MI).

On 11 Dec 1826 in St Thomas Church, St Thomas, Elgin, Ontario, Canada, Elijah Carpenter Osborn married Anna Scott Osborn; the wedding was performed by Rev A. MacKintosh, and witnessed by H.Scott, D.W.Stockton, and Appolonia Osborn Huff (1810 NY-1896, sister of Elijah).

Anna Scott Osborn (1808 Canada-1887 Michigan) was d/o Enos Scott "Enos1" and Christine Bowman Scott. Elijah and Anna met when they were both living in Yarmouth, Elgin, Ontario, Canada. And, Bethiah probably met Enos Scott "Enos1" and Christine in Canada, maybe even attended the children's wedding in 11 Dec 1826. [NOTE--Later, in 1850 in Watson, Allegan, Michigan, Enos Scott "Enos1" (age 76) and Bethiah (age 66, widowed from Alex & Rufus, and now married to Enos) were living with Elijah (age 46) and Anna (age 40).]

(2) At age 37, Bethiah married, on 16 Sep 1821 in Watson, Allegan, Michigan, to Rufus Gilbert (1767 Massachusetts- 1845 Michigan; age 54, s/o John Gilbert and Sarah Rich Gilbert). There were four children from the marriage of Bethiah and Rufus.

(3) At age 64, Bethiah married Enos Scott (Enos1) on 10 Sep 1848. Bethiah passed away on 28 Oc 1852 in Watson, Allegan, Michigan, and was buried in Miner Cemetery, where she shares a grave marker with her second husband Rufus Gilbert.

In 1861 Delaware, Middlesex, Ontario, Canada, Enos Scott (Enos1), age 87 and twice widowed, now lives with his and Christine Bowman Scott's youngest child--Jobe W Scott. Jobe W Scott (age 44) is married to Rebecca Scott (age 41, maiden name Scott) and they have a house full of nine childen and live on their farm. (By 1864, there would be eleven children when Jobe and Rebecca's last child is born--James Alfred Scott (1864 Canada-1935 California),{James is my 1st great grandfather}.

On 26 Aug 1863, age 89, twice married and twice widowed, Enos Scott (Enos1) passed away in Cooper Township, Kalamazoo, Michigan. He was probably living with his daughter Anna Scott Osborn and her husband Elijah Carpenter Osborn on their farm in Cooper Township. Anna and Elijah probably arranged for Enos Scott's (Enos1) funeral, burial, and grave marker in the West Cooper Cemetery (aka Cooper Cemetery) in Cooper Township. [Both Elijah and Anna were later laid to rest in the West Cooper Cemetery; Elijah died on 28 Apr 1882 and Anna on 21 May 1887.]
