I am descendant from John David Scott born in New York and moved to Grand Blanc, Genessee, Michigan.  Information about that Scott family would be of interest to me.
I would LOVE to find my family's Matthew Scott from Ireland, around 1700's?? Not sure,  an at work right now & will look up when i get home
I would love to find out more. I think my wife's Scott family actually came from England, but was most likely related.
Was that directed to Thomas or me??
My connected Mathew is spelled with only one t
Dear Ester,


I apologize. Mine was actually meant for Kaye S.

I Just thought id share some info Here The Irish Scott Family came from 

"came from Scotland during the Ulster Plantation"

alot of Knowledge can be obtained from These FTDNA YDNA Groups even without doing a DNA Test

I'm very interested in any information you have about Scotts in Michigan. My 2nd great grandfather John Charles "Jack" Scott was either born in Ontario, Canada or Saginaw County, Michigan; different records say different things. On the draft, he always seemed to say he was Canadian and not naturalized, but everything else says he was born in Michigan... He was born about 1872. My grandmother believed his parents' names were Walter Scott & Mary Ann Hodgen, and that his father immigrated from England and his mother from Scotland, but I take all of that with a very large grain of salt, as she's been very incorrect about other lines that far back. His mother almost certainly lived in the Peterboro, Ontario area in the 1890s, as we have photos of her and of her sister taken in that period's clothing at "Sproule" photo studio at 170 Charlotte St in Peterboro, Ontario. Unfortunately they were only labeled by family as "Grandmother Scott" and "Grandmother Scott's sister". That photo studio closed before 1895, so the photos could not have been taken any later than that.
Do you have any info on a Mathew Scott & have no date,  but had a son Caleb b Jan 1779 - d 06 Mar 1882, wife's name Sarah (no maiden name) b 1809 - d 29 Mar 1900, Caleb & Sarah are my gg-grandparents in my mother's side.  Just can't seem to find this Mathew, with 1 t in it.  TG , Timothy Green, is Caleb's son,  myg-grandfather & 3rd wife's name is Lydia Margaret [Griffith],  b 08 Jan 1867 & d 01 Mar 1938. TG was born 16 Aug 1836 & d 11 Aug 1925

Hi Mary i don't think i am related to Those Scott's as My Father Came From a Long line of Scott's born in Charlotte County New Brunswick Canada that Descend From Richard Scott of Providence who Descends from the Gemsford Suffolk England Scott's who Descend from the Scott's of Kent England who Descend from William Balliol le Scot born 1251

I Descend From Sylvanus Scott born 1702 who Married Sarah Moses


I Guess it is Possible that a Son of one of My Scott's moved in that Direction, where the Paper Trail Falls Short use DNA to see if there is a Connection i am Kit#510220 in the FTDNA Scott Group and i can be Found in the England GB Norman YDNA Group  also at FTDNA .

I would Suggest Y37 marker or Y67 Marker Test's and Family Finder Testing First then SNP Testing to Refine and Confirm Haplogroup for Male Relatives.

if there is no connection within the first 12 to 37 Markers then the Common ancestor would be 500+ years ago.

SNP Testing after STR Testing Helps narrow things down as research has allowed SNP's to be Dated or have a Time Frame.

FTDNA has a sale right now

Hi Kaye,

What a generous offer.  The story in my family is that a Scott--believed to be Archibald, came to this country after escaping from prison in Ireland after being imprisoned for his efforts in the Jacobite conflict in Scotland.  NO idea if this is true, but I have not been able to find ANY definitive information on the father of my known ancestor, Thomas Scott, born 1787 in either VA or GA and died 1849 in Franklin Co., GA.  

Any help on this matter would be most appreciated.  Thank you so much, Susan

I have relatives in Michigan, but I don't think there is any connection.  My father's aunt was Eliza Scott and she left Scotland in 1922 to go to Flint, Michigan where she was to marry her fiancé Wilfred Loder.
