More portriaits.

Most of the names and birthdays were on a sheet of paper in Jessie Virginia Scott (Williams) file.  Most of the names of offsprings were on a separate sheet in different handwriting.

Eleanor Purcell informatin:
Very old pencil note in (Ruth Fontaine (Scott's)?) handwriting. (1930 time frame?)

Walter's (referring to Walter Lee Scott) Grandmother Scott, Eleanor Purcell Scott born back of Big Spring-
her mother a Harned-
had two brothers: James Purcell and Felix Purcell
Felix went to California in gold rush in 1848 - never married - lived and died in California
James Purcell raised a family on home place
Sallie was a sister married 1st cousin Matt Purcell
    lived at head of Rough Creek in Hardin County
    a daughter Rachel married a Fife
    Rachel's son is Bernie Fife, judge of Hardin County
Had sisters go to  Iowa and marry Kings


I originally identified these two as William Henry Scott and Alice Cash Scott.  After further study, I believe it is Thomas Scott and Sue Hill Scott.  jbs jan 2004
