About Andrew S Scott, I

Anna and Andrew removed to Indiana about 1815, removed to Illinois 1824, first stopping west of Springfield, then to Richland Creek and from there to Island Grove, Sangamon County in 1824, Andrew and Anna owned land in Township 21 North, Range 1 East Funks Grove township, McLean Co. Illinois. There is also a deed record found in Book B. McLean Co. Illinois deed records for a porcel of land sold on October 27, 1834.

Andrew Scott was born in 1786 in North Carolina. When a youth, his family moved to Jackson, now Clay County, Tennessee. There he met and married Anna Longest May 28, 1808. Together they had eleven children. In 1824 the family moved to Sangamon County, Illinois. It is not known when he came across the literature of Alexander Campbell, but it can be safely said that his influence was great. Not long after arriving in Illinois he met Theophilus Sweet, a strong Baptist. Soon his influence brought about change in thought, and they committed themselves to proclaiming New Testament Christianity in their area. Scott's work was primarily in the western part of Illinois. He planted the church in Sangamon County at his home in New Berlin. He evangelized in neighboring counties as well. He was a strong influence in that region in the early to middle years of the 19th century in that area. In 1853 his wife Anna passed away, and he remarried Mary Maxwell. They were married about six years when Scott died in 1859. So little is known of his life and work. However it can be said that he was faithful to the cause of Christ until his death.
