Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Feb. 5, 1820
Ontario, Canada
Death: Mar. 27, 1889
McPherson County
Kansas, USA


As of 1 Dec 2012, the lineage of Rebecca's
forebears, whose surname was also Scott,
are unknown. It is surmised, that when
Rebecca was born in Ontario, Canada,
that her parents were residents there
and were part of the rural farming community
and Friends Community (Quakers). They
probably were part of the immigrant Quakers
from PENNA COLONY (Pennsylvania, USA), that
moved to Ontario, Canada, for political
and religious reasons after the Revolutionary
War, when American Colonists ("Patriots") were
harassing British "Loyalists" (United Empire Loyalists) and they were probably among those who refused to raise arms because of religious reasons in that War. It is surmised that Rebecca was a cousin of Jobe W. Scott. (dht)

Marriage--(11 Nov 1840)
Jobe W Scott (age 23) married Rebecca Scott
(age 20, birth 5 Feb 1820 Ontario, Canada-
death 27 Mar 1889 McPherson County, Kansas).
The ceremony witnessed by Jobe's brothers Jacob Scott and Enos Scott. The ceremony was performed by Reverend M Burnham in the St Thomas Church, Elgin, Ontario, Canada.

[The St Thomas Church is today a museum and is still located in St Thomas, Elgin, Ontario, Canada. There are several websites with interesting info about the St Thomas
Church and the area. In 1982, the St Thomas Church was designated a historical property and the Church site was made a heritage site. In 1986, it was restored and renovated. The Church is known today as the Old St Thomas Church and is open for touring.]

The ELEVEN known children of Jobe W Scott and
Rebecca Scott (all born in Ontario, Canada)--

Rebecca lived in Ontario, Canada, since
birth, and after marrying her husband
Jobe W Scott and birthing their children.

After her marriage at age 20, in Nov 1840,
she gave birth to her first child in
Jul 1843. Then she gave birth to a child
every couple years until age 44 in Dec 1864.
[That means she was changing diapers for 24
years!!! That's almost a quarter of a
Century!!! And, there were no automatic
washers and dryers!!!]

In 1861 Rebecca and Jobe lived in Delaware,
Middlesex, Ontario, Canada, and Jobe's
father Enos Scott (Enos1), age 87 and
twice widowed, lived with them. Later Enos
moved to Michigan where there was Scott
Family; he passed away and is buried there.

After 1871, Rebecca and Jobe sold their
land in Ontario, Canada, and purchased
land in McPherson County, Kansas, where
Rebecca passed away in 1889.
