OBITUARY - LUCIUS H. SCOTT
LUCIUS H. SCOTT, who departed this life on the 22d ult., in this city, was a man whose memory will survive, not only in the affection of his friends, but in the esteem of all who knew him. Born in Vermont, in 1794, he removed to the West in early life and settled at Terre Haute, Indiana, then a mere hamlet, or trading post in the wilderness. His great energy, force of character and marked integrity soon won for him a commanding position in the growing community, and for a time he rendered the State food service, in official life, as its financial agent.
Returning at length to the East, Mr. Scott sspent his latter years in dignified retirement and constant beneficane at Bristol, Pa., and in this city until the end came after a protracted illness, in peace and Christian resignation.
As Grand Master of the Masonic Fraternity, Mr. Scott, with his brethren, laid the cornerstone of the monument at Gettysburg, and his administration is still gratefully remembered by the order.
His distinguished characteristics were justice and uprightness, mingled with admirable generosity. Many young men he assisted and encouraged in business and in obtaining an education. He was a most excellent citizen and a worthy member of the Episcopal Church. His record is without a blemish; his example is worthy of imitation; it was a pleasure to have known him and an honor to have been intimate with him; and many rise to call him legend."
