Some of our SCOTT FAMILY members of direct lineage—
Third Great Grandparents--
Christine is a descendant of the Bowman Baumann Family and the eleventh of 13 children of her parents Elizabeth Bowman and Jacob Bauman Bowman. The Bowman Family (which is well documented in books and on Internet) were English Loyalists and Quakers and had fled the Tunkhannock, Pennsylvania Colony area in the Winter of 1777/78 and found refuge in Niagara, Canada. However, Samuel Enos and his fourth child Adam Bowman Scott (b 1812) who were Quaker and British Loyalists, were captured by American Patriots and imprisoned. More on this can be found on the Internet and in books about the American Revolutionary War and the "Butler's Rangers", who were British Loyalists. [SPECIAL NOTE: These are my Maternal Third Great Grandparents.]
The 1861 Census Records for Delaware, Middlesex, Ontario, Canada, show Jobe's father (Samuel Enos Scott, age 87) lived with his son Jobe at the time of the census. Samuel Enos Scott died later that same year; and his wife Christine Bowman Scott pre-deceased Samuel Enos Scott in 1848 at age 73 in Ontario, Canada.

James Alfred Scott passed away at age 70, on 29 Jul 1935 in Delano, Kern, California, resulting from complications after a long illness. He is buried in Delano, Kern, California. Aunt Nette (Jeannette Scott Alvarez) writes in her notes to me that, he passed away after being ill for a long time. Aunt Nette says, "He had been in an auto accident and one of his legs was gangrene at the time of his death. This leads me and others to think he was diabetic."
