History of John Scott, 1761-1843, by Kenneth Scott.
John, Jacob [and their families], and their nephew Allen Clement Scott (son of Nimrod Sr) along with his wife and his sister, Sallie who was married to William Scott, came in the same wagon train to their new home in Kentucky, Nimrod, Sr. followed 1817-1820. This group of Scotts were located in the south central section of the county and were spread early north from the satate line along Kettle Creek and on PeaRidge up to at least Galloway Creek. This group of Scotts by far have the largest number of descendants in the Cumberland, KY area.

I have been told that the Clement family used the given name Wilmoth and that is one more reason for thinking Wilmoth's mother might have been Lucy Clement or Lucy Clement Walker and perhaps a young widow when she married Thomas. Have found no evidence of this at all.

Nimrod Scott is on the 1820 Cumberland Co KY census.
1m age 16-26, 1m 45+, 1f -10, 1f 16-26, 1f 45+
Looks like it could be Nimrod and spouse, over 45, maybe a married child with a young daughter living with them.
They were not there in 1810.

I also do not believe Clement Scott married at age 14.]

History of John Scott, 1761-1843, by Kenneth Scott.
John, Jacob [and their families], and their nephew Allen Clement Scott (son of Nimrod Sr) along with his wife and his sister, Sallie who was married to William Scott, came in the same wagon train to their new home in Kentucky, Nimrod, Sr. followed 1817-1820. This group of Scotts were located in the south central section of the county and were spread early north from the satate line along Kettle Creek and on PeaRidge up to at least Galloway Creek. This group of Scotts by far have the largest number of descendants in the Cumberland, KY area.

1810: Burksville, Cumberland, KY
Scotts were: Absalom [age 26-45], Henry [age 26-45 and listed in a row with Thos. and Saml.] , Saml [age 26-45], Thos [age +45], Jacob and John [both over 45 and listed next to each other] . No Allen or Clement and no William Scott listed as head of household. John Scott did list three males age 16-26 in his household, but no women of comparable age.
A Thomas Scott has been suggested in some databases as father of the Scotts in Cumberland.

In 1820, Listed as Paoli, Cumberland, KY
Nimrod, Sr., Clement, Joel, Jeremiah, and Nimrod Jr.
Jacob and John still listed next to each other, and both over age 45. Absalom now also over 45.
Samuel Scott was still in the 26-45 age group. Thomas over 45. Henry not there but there was a widow Nancy Scott on the same page with Samuel & Thomas - she was age 26-45.
Other Scotts added were Nathaniel and Shadrach, both 26-45, next to each other, and on the same page with Samuel, Thomas, and Nancy Scott.
And there was apparently a young Scott widow - Sally, with a little boy under 10, and she was age 16-26.

Wilmoth WALTERS and Nimrod SCOTT had the following children:

48

i.

Clement SCOTT was born circa 1786 in Pittsylvania County, Virginia. He died in August 1840 at the age of 54 in Cumberland County, Kentucky.

Said to have married Sarah Slaydon 25 Nov 1800 Allegheny Co PA   [I think this is WRONG.... I believe Wilmoth's brother Clement Walters was married to Sarah "Sallie" Slaydon and I doubt that the marriage took place in Allegheny Co as the Slaydons lived in Pittsylvania Co where the Walters were living at the time.  I also do not believe Clement Scott married at age 14. Of course the birth year for Clement could be wrong.  Another instance of the wrong marriage being assigned to the wrong person because given names were the same.]

Other databases give the marriage as Pittsylvania Co, VA - the above was probably confusion with the names Pittsylvania and Pennsylvania. They also give a birth as early as 1770, which makes considerably more sense. The 1830 Cumberland census says he was born between 1770 and 1780. It is likely if Clement married Sally Slaydon - she was a different person from the Sally who married his uncle Clement Walters.

1820 Cumberland, KY
Clement Scot: 1m -10, 1m 10-16, 1m 16-18, 1m 16-26 [probably same as the 16-18 year old], 1m age 26-45 [Clement]. 2 females -10, 2f 10-16, 1 female age 26-45.

1830 Cumberland, KY:
Clement Scott 1m 15-20, 1m 20-30, 1m 50-60; 1f -5, 2f 5-10, 1f 10-15, 1f 15-20, 1f 20-30, 1f 40-50
