I have been dabbling in genealogy for many years and have not had success beyond my ancestor, William Scott, who died in Bedford County Virginia in 1794. I believe that he had arrived in Bedford County about 1740 and that he was married to Lucretia(Lucy) James who died in 1808. I believe that he came from the Maryland Eastern Shore area. DNA studies show close ties to the Nix,Nixey family. I would like to refine my findings re the Nix family, whether my ancestor was born in this country, and whether he came from England or Scotland. Many thanks for any ideas.
