I can't remember if I acknowledged your note about being 9th cousins by email or otherwise. A collaboration process was started on William & Lucy James Scott and their descendants in early June, which is intended to identify as many relationships and as much information as either doubtful, possible or probable, in this line. Expectations are not high for finding primary sources to support proof, but we are making headway. Therefore, I would say that 9th cousins is tentative, at best. Stay tuned and please take some time to search for primary sources and contribute as much as you can, in the research sections.
