JOHN SCOTT married Minerva Hubbell. One of their children was Winfield Scott.

WINFIELD SCOTT was born at Sidney, Shelby County, Ohio, Sep­tember 13, 1827. In October, 1836, he moved with his mother to Tazewell County, Illi­nois, where he received a public school education. He later moved to Adams County, Illinois, where he married Nancy Ann Haines, a native of Virginia. In 1854 Winfield Scott moved from Adams County to Stark County, Illinois, purchasing 80 acres in Section 20, Penn Township. He pioneered in raising fine cattle in Illinois and Missouri. Winfield and Nancy Scott had seven children, one of whom was George Edgar Scott.

GEORGE EDGAR SCOTT was born on June 20, 1851. He married Sarah Alice Heywood, daughter of Thomas Heywood and Annie Wrigley. George was a farmer and stockman. He lived at Wyoming, Illinois. George E. Scott died February 25, 1926; his wife, Sarah Alice, died on October 7, 1930. George and Sarah Alice Scott had eight children, three of whom died in infancy:

  • Maude Scott, born November 26, 1879. She married James Dunlap. Maude died November 12, 1926. James and Maude Dunlap had three children, Alice, Barbara and Jimmie, all of whom graduated from Northwestern University.
  • NEVVA SCOTT, born August 20, 1882, at Wyoming, Illinois. She married Culver W. Buffington, son of Abraham Buffington, Jr. and Susan Ann Pettit. (See Buffington Family for children of Culver and Nevva Buffington.)
  • Florence Scott, born October 1, 1891. She married Shube Fell. They had one child, Fay Louise Fell.
  • Jessie Scott, born February 27, 1884. She married John Sanner. They had no children.

The Scott family thus merged with the Buffington family.
