I have been posting and watching for a couple of years for some info on the Tyrone/Scott connections. While I don't see it yet perhaps Charles had siblings? My Ancestor James Scott b. 31 Oct 1802, d. 10 Jan 1873, listed on Tombstone as a native of co Tyrone. He had a brother Robert born 1805. I think there was also a sister. They were early settlers in Eastern Iowa via Eastern Ohio/Western PA and James was a Miller. The other thing that caught my eye was that My GG Grandfathers middle name was Graham so I was guessing that was James' mother's maiden name. You can see what info I have here:

Hope we can make some connections!

I have decided to send this to the list rather than directly to
Kerry, in the hope that other researchers who are or may be descended
from Charles Scott and Jane Beattie (or Baty or Beatie) will add to
our knowledge or correct any errors.

I have been led to believe that I am descended from Charles Scott and
Jane Batty (Beatie) of County Tyrone, Ireland. Here is what I sent
the list in June 2007, in italics. See after the italics entry for
today's thoughts.

The furthest back my maternal ancestors can be traced is to Charles
SCOTT, b 1767 in Ireland. His date of death is not known. Charles
married Jane BATTY (BEATTY) born 1771. She died in 1861. All of the
children with one exception (Jane, born in Scotland) appear to have
been born in County Tyrone. And all the children seem to have
emigrated to York County, New Brunswick, Canada at various times. But
there is no trace of Charles and Jane in New Brunswick, so presumably
they died in County Tyrone.

Children's Names and Dates of Birth with Spouses

John SCOTT b 1791 m. Martha ARBUCKLE b 1789

James SCOTT b 1793 m. Elenor b 1794 (Surname not known)

Jane SCOTT b 1796 in Scotland m. Charles GRAY b.1800 in Woodstock, NB

Nathaniel SCOTT b 10 Mar 1793 m. Jane MURRAY b 12 May 1803 in County

Hugh SCOTT b ca 1803 m. Isabella BOYD

William SCOTT b 1 Jan 1807 m. Frances L. GRAY b. 1819 in Woodstock, NB

Joseph SCOTT b ca 1810 m. Esther (surname not known)

Sarah SCOTT b 11 Jun 1811 m. Joseph GRAY b.1810 in North Hampton, NB
(This family went to Utah)

Sarah was said to have been born in Ardstraw.

My ancestor, John, arrived in New Brunswick in 1820 along with his
wife and brother Nathaniel with his wife Jane and another brother
Joseph. They had with them a bandle linen which leads me to wonder if
the family was somehow involved in the flax industry. William
apparently arrived in Canada in 1817. I don't know when the other
siblings emigrated.

I have connected with several other descendants of Charles and Jane
and now have a sizable family tree of their children and descendants
now scattered in the United States as well as Canada. Although much
of my information comes from other researchers, I have been able to
turn up additional information about Charles and Jane's descendants.
I would be happy to share what I have discovered with other descendants.

But despite following all the leads found in postings to the list
over the last 2 years, checking all the links on the helpful Tyrone
website and trying some of the paid gravestone and other services in
Northern Ireland I have found no more information on Charles and his
wife Jane BATTY (BEATTY). I would love to visit County Tyrone, but
not without some solid information about where they might have lived.

I found reference on the Irish Parish History Books web site to a
person who was willing to do Ardstraw lookups in Historical Survey of
a Parish 1600-1900, but a message to this person received no answer.
Perhaps someone on the list has a copy of this book and would be
willing to look up Sarah and perhaps other siblings?

Have also found more than one Charles SCOTT in the Griffith's
Valuation and the List of Spinning Wheels in Tyrone but am unsure of
how to follow up on those leads.

Most of my information came from a large handwritten family history
by a descendant of Nathaniel. I have since connected via the internet
with other descendants. Two descendants have helped to flesh out my
family tree but another descendant (of the William above) has not
responded to my messages.

So the puzzle here is William. Is Kerry's William the same as my
ancestor's son? Could Charles and Jane have had 2 sons named William,
or were there 2 Charles and Janes?

Another name that caught my attention is Ann Graham. My maternal
grandmother was a Graham, descended from Patrick Graham and Katherine
Duncan. (However that is off topic for this list, but perhaps Kerry
would like to contact me about that branch of the family or about my
Scott information.)

Hoping to hear from Kerry, and perhaps others with more information!

Hi All

I haven't posted on this list for awhile , but I saw ref to the name SCOTT.
I usually concentrate in Fermanagh, though my gg grandparents were
Montgomery ARMSTRONG b 1812 Drummee, co Fermanagh and Sarah BUCHANAN b? ,daughter of
John BUCHANAN of Bunnynubber/Bonnynubber, near Omagh, Co Tyrone.

I am interested in the SCOTT name though. And knowing how families crossed
counties....I thought I would post again.

Montgomery ARMSTRONG (above) had a brother Alexander ARMSTRONG who was
married to Martha RICHEY (name is also spelt Richie/Ritchie). Martha's brother
William RICHEY was married to Jane SCOTT b 1816, co Fermanagh.

Jane SCOTT's parents were John SCOTT and Martha HENDERSON. From a Scott
descendent ....when Martha was a widow they lived in Paisley Scotland and she
owned a mill. Jane SCOTT's siblings were..James, William, Samuel, John,
Elizabeth or Eliza, and Isabella (?).

Through my searching family "stories" have said this Jane SCOTT was a
"cousin" to my ARMSTRONGs (Montgomery, Alexander, etc). I thought since the name
was posted I would put mine here too.
