Obituary:  Hugh Scott.


  Hugh, son of Simon and Henrietta Scott, was born in Pickaway county, near Circleville, Ohio, November 1, 1844, and died in Garnett, Kansas, January 11, 1916, aged seventy-one years, two months and one day.

  While yet a child in his motherís arms, he, with his fatherís family, migrated to Jefferson county, Iowa, where he grew to manhood.

  While still a lad of eighteen years, he enlisted in Company D, Nineteenth regiment, Iowa volunteer infantry, and served his country with honor eighteen months.

  March 4, 1869, he was united in marriage with Miss Ellen Jordan.  Three children, two daughters and a son, were born to this union, the son and a daughter preceding him in death.

  Hugh Scott was a kind husband and father, a good neighbor and a patriotic citizen.  He bore his sufferings patiently, and made a brave fight for life, but his heart suddenly ceased to beat, and the end came.  Though the family did not hope for his ultimate recovery, his sudden death proved a great shock.

  He leaves to mourn his demise a wife and daughter, two grandsons, two brothers and two sisters, besides other relatives and a host of friends whose sincere sympathy goes out to the bereaved ones.
