Note: Joseph Scott was born about 1759 and was under age when his father made his will. He was Joseph Scott Jr. to distinguish him from his cousin Joseph Scott. Joseph Scott Sr. was about fifteen years older than Jr . Separating them is difficult because John Scott, father of Joseph Jr. , was the guardian of Joseph Sr. Joseph was attending Hampden-Sydney College during the Revolutionary War. He left school and equipped a company at his own expense. He was commissioned second Lieutenant under Capt. Thom as Nelson in 1777. He later made first Lieutenant and in 1780 became Captain. Joseph was an original member of the Virginia Society of Cincinnati . Officers of the Continental Army formed the Society of Cincinnati, the oldest military organization in America, in 1783. George Washington was its first president. Joseph Scott [trademark]s portrait by Fervetde St. Memin is in the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.Joseph married Elizabeth Mary Ann Booker [BK.126.96.36.199] in Amelia County 13 November (bond) 1778 . Joseph [trademark]s guardian, Jacob Williamson, consented to the marriage. In 1782 Amelia County listed � Joseph Scott Junr[??] as head of a family of four whites and eleven blacks. Three years later Maj. Joseph Scott had six in his family. That year Joseph Scott and Elizabeth, his wife, sold 210 acres on the Staunton River to Richard Edward Booker [BK.188.8.131.52], the brother of Elizabeth (Booker) Scott. The deed described the land as � Booker [trademark]s Ferry[??] and was probably the land called �The Ferry[??] Elizabeth[trademark]s father inherited from his father. Joseph and Elizabeth (Booker) Scott were living in Campbell County, Virginia, in 1800. Joseph was still there in 1818 when he applied for a military pension. He died in Campbell 23 April 1828 and The Lynchburg Virginian published his obituary on May 5. His wife was living in 1829 when they made the last pension payment. His wife, Elizabeth, died there 15 September 1836 at around seventy- four years of age. Joseph [trademark]s heirs applied for additional bounty land on 4 December 1837. Pension records identify their children except William who apparently predeceased his father.
