Anna Scott Jefferson was named after her father's twin, Anna Scott (Jefferson) Marks. Young Anna Scott would be called Nannie or Nancy – the nickname shared with both her aunt and her mother, Anne (Lewis) Jefferson. She grew up at her family’s plantation, Snowden, in Buckingham County, Virginia.

She married Zachariah Nevil before January 1, 1803 when the minister’s return was filed in Albemarle County, Virginia. The ceremony was conducted by Rev. Martin Dawson, Sr., a Baptist minister based in Albemarle County.[1]

Anna Scott was excluded from her father's 1808 will, though her husband would eventually administer the contested estate. She spent most of her married life in Nelson County, Virginia. There the Nevils had four children who lived to adulthood.

Anna Scott (Jefferson) Nevil died before September 1, 1825, when her cousin, Martha (Jefferson) Randolph mentioned her death in a letter.[2][3]
