Alney Allen Scott married Margaret Francis Powell about 1870 in Ballard County, Kentucky.

Family tradition says that following Alney's death, abt 1900 that Margaret moved to Arkansas. The time is not known (at this time) but youngest son Bryan was "old enough to be charged fare, but young enough to sit on his mother's lap during the trip."

One other story is about the death of great-grandma Margaret, when my mother, Mary Elizabeth Scott, was 12 years old grandma Margaret passed away. They came to grandma Margaret's house to embalm her IN HER OWN BED. The kids, of which my mother was the oldest, were spying through the glass of grandma Margaret's bedroom window and watched the events until they "started filling up the jugs!" When I asked what she meant she said the jugs were for catching the blood from grandma's body. At that point the kids decided that watching wasn't such a good thing to do.

John Martin Scott was born on December 7, 1889 in Kevil, Kentucky. The son of Alney Allen Scott and Margaret Francis Powell-Scott. John Martin Scott passed away on September 13, 1968 in Roe, Arkansas. John Martin is buried in Roe Cemetery, Roe, Arkansas.

I am attempting to fill in all the gaps and when I get some more information I will be glad to share it with you. I am sending copies of the Scott Genealogy to my Aunts and Uncles hoping for further information, then hope to continue on with the present day families. Hopefully I will be able to come up with more family stories. I am the youngest child of six, son of Green Perry and Mary Elizabeth Scott-Gray. I was born on March 19, 1953.
