About Sarah Scott

John Wilson Scott I married 1st Sarah Kincannon on 3 May 1782 in Washington co. Va. The space in the record for the minister's name was left blank- but based on the history of Ebbing Spring Church (which became Glade Spring Presyterian Church in 1788), they were probably married by Thomas Brown Craighead. John and Sarah had likely known one another for some time, as both their families had moved from York co. Penn. to Washington co. Va. at about the same time. They were married almost exactly one year after John returned home from the war. Sarah was born about 1762 in what is now Adams co. Penn. It is thought, but not yet proved, that they had one daughter, and Sarah died either in childbirth or shortly after, in Washington co. Va. Sarah was not mentioned in her father's (Francis Kincannon) will, written in 1795, but her daughter was. In 1825, in a lawsuit on an unrelated matter involving the Kincannon family, Sarah was listed as deceased. Their daughter:

  * Elizabeth b. prob. 1783, Washington co. Va'''. m. after 1795 James Maston? It is not known who Elizabeth was raised by. She probably lived with her mothers family. The Kincannon family moved from Washington co. Va. to Tennessee in 1806.  There is a James Maston listed in the 1782 Henry Co. Va. personal property tax list (1 tithe, 6 negroes, 6 horses, 14 cattle).
