I am mainly researching my husband's Scott line. It is a proven fact that he is descended from Britton Scott (c. 1794-1881) of Emanuel County, Georgia. My documentation for Britton and five generations of his descendants can be viewed at Scott Family: Descendants of Britton Scott of Emanuel County, Georgia located at this url: []
My husband has tested at Family Tree DNA and his 37 marker DNA results appears on the YDNA Match page at the Scott Family Tree DNA Project. My husband in is the I2b1 Haplogroup.
A family Bible lists Britton Scott's father as William Scott. We know a William Scott left Anson County, NC before 1790 and went to Georgia. In the mid-1780's a William Scott received land grants in Burke County, GA. (Burke is not far from Emanuel County.) We are currently seeking more information about this William Scott, as well as the Scotts in Anson County, NC.
Another man who is a perfect 37 marker DNA match with my husband traces his ancestry back to Nathaniel Scott who was born in 1786 in Montgomery County, NC. (Montgomery was created from Anson in 1788.) This man shared a newspaper article with me that says his Scott line originated in Queen Anne County, MD. Research has shown that there was a Nathaniel S. Scott who died in QA by 1742. He had sons William, Nathaniel, John and Solomon. We are currently studying this family too as we feel that likely sons or grandsons of Nathaniel S. Scott migrated to Anson County, NC. We know that a William Scott and a Nathaniel Scott received land grants in Anson in 1771 and 1773, respectively.
