Robert W. SCOTT was born 28 Jan 1834 in Jefferson Ohio. He married Mary Elizabeth ELDER on 24 Oct 1854 in Carroll County Ohio. She was the daughter of Josiah ELDER and Eliza JOHNSON. Mary was born in PA on 20 Feb 1838. They had 6 children:

6. Robert Melville 18 Nov 1870-2 Oct 1939

Robert W. SCOTT, his wife Mary and all but Maggie and Robert Melville are buried in Roselawn Cemetary, Logan County Oklahoma.

The 1885 Census of Silverdale Township in Cowley County Kansas shows R. W. (51) and Mary E. SCOTT(45), along with W.L.(28), J.E.(24), M.J.(20), and Edward(2). W.L. is listed as a widower. He married his first wife Lettie Rena BODINE in 1878. Their only child was Edward Bodine SCOTT born 17 Sep 1880.

Robert W. SCOTT and family, William Lloyd SCOTT and family, Hester Jane (SCOTT) ESTUS and family, and Mountford J SCOTT and family are all believed to have participated in the 1889 Oklahoma Landrun. They all homesteaded near Mulhall OK. I have copies of the homestead papers for Robert W. and Mountford J SCOTT-my direct line. A family story has it that Mountford J found a Sooner on the land he wanted to claim during the Landrun and traded his saddle for the right to stake it.

Mountford J married Lettie DAKAN. The DAKAN family is listed as being in the same township in 1885. Thomas (66) and Sarrah (51) DAKAN along with Lettie(16), Mary(18) and Carrie (8). There are family pictures of Lettie and Carrie. Carrie married a YOUNG and had a daughter Gertrude (picture). In the Iowa Southwest Bedford Iowa newspaper, dated 7 Sep 1878, is mention of Thomas Daken and family of Polk Township moving to Cowley County Kansas.

Mountford J and Lettie (10 Sep 1869-23 Mar 1890) had 2 sons:

Lloyd Eugene 30 Oct 1887-1 Dec 1895
