SCOTT- Bro. John Scott was born in Washington county, Arkansas November 12, 1826; died at Lone Grove Texas July 29, 1907 aged 80 years, 8 months, and 17 days.

He moved to Fannin county, Texas in 1844 and in 1851 moved to Llano county with Bro. Smith, the first Methodist Protestant to move to this part of the state. Bro. Smith was afterwards killed and scalped by the Indians. Bro. Scott married his daughter; Miss Catherine Smith Sept. 28, 1856. He joined the first M.P. Church organized west of the Brazos river in Texas; which was Ebeneezer Class in Burnet county. He joined in 1857 with Rev. Isaac Hoover, Bro. Smith and others in forming this church and was the last male member of the original church.

Bro. Scott was truly a pioneer in our church there having belonged half a century; having seen our work grow from one church to two white annual conferences and one colored conference in this territory. His integrity was unquestioned; his honesty excited the admiration of men; his veracity was never doubted;; his firmness nothing could shake. And was always at church when his health permitted. He was a Christian who was found to be the same all the time; ever persistent and steadfast. He was a kind husband and parent and though he suffered much, he was very patient in his last sickness. He was prepared and ready to die. He was a staunch Methodist Protestant

Sister Catherine Scott died March 7, 1873. On July 1, 1873 he married Miss Rhoda Hughs who still survives him. He had 12 children; one son who is dead and eleven still living. Six of them were present when he died. He has gone to his reward; but those who knew him will always remember the sturdy, truthful and honest John Scott.
