John Scott married Nancy Rodgers before 1790 in Pennsylvania and emigrated to Kentucky. "In the Spring of 1792 John and his wife, Nancy, were engaged in making maple sugar. They were captured by a band of 19 Potawattomie Indians and carried away north of the Ohio River to the old Maumee Village thence across the St. Joseph River." John and Nancy were seperated and held captives in different parts of the country. John escaped and served as a spy for General Anthony Wayne.
John and Nancy were reunited in Kentucky after the treaty in 1794. They reestablished their home and remained in Kentucky until 1818 when they emigrated to Pike County, Missouri and settled in a section near the headwaters of Buffalo Creek, near a large spring that was named after John and known to this day as Scott's Spring.
