A BIOGRAPHY OF LT. ADAM CALHOUN SCOTT, by Larry Overmire (4th great nephew), Aug. 2008:

Adam Calhoun Scott was born in 1746 in York County, Pennsylvania, the son of immigrants William and Margaret "Peggy" (Calhoun) Scott. 

He served under Gen. George Washington as 2nd lieutenant in Capt. Charles Maclay's 8th company, Col. James Dunlap's regiment, of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania militia. Family tradition says that Adam was at Valley Forge, crossed the Delaware with Washington and fought at Brandywine Station among other battles.

In 1786, he married Elizabeth Thornton in Pennsylvania. They moved to Kentucky where he was an apprentice tailor. They had 13 children.

In 1819, he moved his family from Warren County, Kentucky to Cooper County, Missouri.

Adam died on May 21, 1831, in Cooper County at the age of 85. He has a grave marker in Crown Hill Cemetery, Sedalia, Pettis Co., Missouri, but some say he was actually buried on his farm and the gravesite plowed over and lost forever.

Note: The photo posted at right by Larry Harris is of Adam C. Scott, Jr. (1800-1888), the son of Lt. Adam C. Scott.
