Is it possible that he was listed as Mulatto? I found some possible records.

I found a 1870 Jefferson, Alabama census that lists an Ellis family. There is an 8 year old child, and father by the same name. They are listed as Black. Same name, 1880 census, same town, 19 year old Scott is listed as Mulatto. Could this be him?
It is possuble since the only other information I have on him is that he had 2 daughters before 1916 by the name of Laurel and Gertrude.

This is a long shot on the daughters: "United States Census, 1920," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MXZV-VZ5 : accessed 19 May 2016), Gertrude Ellis in household of Hallie Ellis, Selma, Dallas, Alabama, United States; citing sheet 11A, NARA microfilm publication T625 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.); FHL microfilm 1,820,014.

Hallie Ellis     Head     F     27     Mississippi  Black  Married
Sallie Johnson Mother F     52     Mississippi
Leone Ellis     Daug     F     8     Alabama
Gertrude Ellis Dau     F     7     Alabama
