John J. Scattergood was born in England and died in East Providence, RI. He is listed in the Albany Directory on Ancestry.com: "John J. Scattergood, clerk, 110 North Main, house 39, Vandewater, Providence RI 1890, 1891, 1892." The 110 Main Street address was the 'Scattergood Furniture Store' that was founded in England by William Scattergood... other occupations include: painter, tin peddler, clerk . . .
In c.1886 John Joseph married Rebecca Josephine Lewin Bates in Boston. They were later divorced.

Following are some interesting entries from William Lincoln Bates'notebook (courtesy of Sue Maden) on John Joseph Scattergood's character:

* July 11, 1889: Wm Scattergood and his wife Abbie insulted me on ? St (witness).
* September 17, 1889: Joe S (JJS) was very insulting and threatening.
* April 12, 1890: rec'd 2 Telegrams from RI - one from Ed Scattergood, JJS's brother and the other from Nellie Goll saying Rebecca and Carrie (William Bate's daughter and ex-wife) and all had returned.
* April 22, 1890: Joe S (JJS) drove along side of my car and had a great deal to say and with other things called me a white son of a bitch and said he would smack my head if I came out to Woonsocket. They all feel very bad to think they got left out seeing my boy Willie. Miller was on the car says he shall complain of him to the Chief of Police.
* April 30, 1890: Miller the merchant on NM st after meeting is very much worked up over Joe and his action by the car the other day.
* March 14, 1892: JJ Scattergood insulted me from NM St to the foot of Cano St. Called me very many hard things. I was forced to keep my mouth shut as usual. A red faced English woman of Wagle Park heard and saw him.
* May 19, 1892: JJS had a good deal to say.
* May 20, 1892: JJS was at me again today.

NOTE: Willian Bates married Rebecca Jospehine Lewin (they met in the Providence Reform School, he was there for larceny and she for vagrancy). They married in 1876, had two children (Carrie and Willie) and divorced in 1884. Rebecca married John Joseph Scattergood (JJS) in 1886 in Boston. John Joseph raised Rebecca's daughter Carrie, who call him "Papa." William Bates raised his son.)
