  1. Letter, Beulah Scott Underwood to Alverda Godfrey Miller, in Scott Family Letters, Secondary quality.

    Cousin Margaret’s Brother Charles H. and sweet wife, Caroline live at 310 Woodside, Hilcrest, Wilmington, Delaware. . . .
    Just had a letter from Caroline not so long ago . . . .
    She and Charles came to see my sister, Effie Long and me here in Gillette about fourteen years ago. My husband, Roy U. was alive then and we had a good visit and also when C. Margaret came out here three years or so before they came. C. Margaret died before Charles and Caroline came out. Charles and Caroline went on to California to see Charles’ sister Virginia (they called her ‘Gen’) and she married a Dr. Walters and live in Oakland, Calif and C. Margaret went to see them too. I have never seen Gen but saw Charles’ other sister Agnes Cooling and she and Mr. Cooling had Eldora and me to dinner in 1918 when we went back there. Their son Samuel was there, he is married but their son, Severson was not there that evening at dinner. I saw Charles’ brother Sewall Davis Scott when back there in 1918 and he and his sweet wife had Dora and I to the finest chicken dumpling dinner ever. They are both dead now – but I still have some of their letters they wrote me. Sewall Davis S, the policeman, looked like General Pershing of the First World War I thought and Caroline said so many remarked that he did look like Pershing at his (Sewall Davis’) funeral.

  8. Agnes's ages in the 1870 and 1880 census records, closest in time to her birth, are consistent with a birth date of 1866 or 1867. At the time of her marriage, she claimed to be 22, giving her a suggested birth date of 1866 or 1867. (Her place of birth is also given in her marriage record.) By the time of the 1900 census, she had gained a year in age, claiming a birth date in July 1865. If she was born in July, then 1866 seems the most likely year, based on the earlier records.
  9. 9.0 9.1 In 1940, Agnes's son Samuel was living at 2304 W 17th, but had not lived there in that house 5 yrs previously, suggesting that Agnes died sometime between 1935 and 1940.
