Rev. WILLIAM 0. SCOTT

    Although now living quietly in Butler in the filial care of his own and his wife's father, Rev. William 0. Scott has devoted much of his life to the work of the ministry and in the church has done effective service for the advancement of moral and spiritual interests. He was born in Jefferson county. Ohio, March 20, 1856, and is the son of Thomas H. and Margaret M. (Lyons) Scott. His paternal grandfather was William Scott, a native of Ireland, and the family was founded in America about 1770. Settling in Pennsylvania on his arrival in the new world, William Scott was married in that state, his wife, Miss Susana Scott, being a native of Pennsylvania, whence they removed to Jefferson county, Ohio, in 1800. This state had not then been admitted to the Union. The Indians far outnumbered the white settlers and it seemed that the seeds of civilization had hardly been planted here, but Mr. and Mrs. Scott bravely faced the dangers and hardships of pioneer life and aided in laying broad and deep a foundation upon which has been builded the present prosperity and progress of the commonwealth. Mr. Scott passed away in Jefferson county in 1832 at the age of fifty-two years, while his wife died in Tuscarawas county, Ohio, in 1865, at the age of eighty-five years.
    In their family were twelve children, but Thomas H. Scott, the father of our subject, is the only one now living. He was born in Jefferson county, Ohio, January 12, 1820, and was reared amid the wild scenes and environments of pioneer life. Having arrived at years of maturity he was married on the 25th of November, 1847, to Miss Margaret M. Lyons, whose birth occurred May 1, 1829. In his youth Thomas H. Scott attended the public schools and afterwards began teaching, which profession he followed during the winter terms for seven years. During the period of the Civil war, however, he put aside business and professional cares and offered his services to the government, enlisting in 1864 as a member of Company F, One Hundred and Fifty-seventh Ohio Volunteer Infantry, for one hundred days. During this time he was engaged in guarding prisoners at Fort Delaware and on the 15th of September, 1864, he was mustered out. For a considerable period in his early life he devoted his time and energy to general agricultural pursuits and in 1867 he joined the Muskingum annual conference of the Methodist Protestant church, with which he was connected for fifteen years, preaching at different places during that period. He is still connected therewith, being now superannuated. For the past ten years he has divided his time between the homes of his son and daughter. He is a remarkably well preserved man for one of his age and his mental faculties seem as yet undimmed. He has always been a student and a thinker and has kept abreast with the times in all matters of general progress. He is now living with his son, William, at the very venerable age of eighty-eight years, while his wife passed away April 14, 1906. They were the parents of six children: Albert G. and Andrew M., both of whom are now deceased; Ida B., who has also passed away; William 0., of this review; Ella L., the wife of Charles G. Busbee, of Fairfield county, Ohio; and Frank S., deceased.
    William 0. Scott was reared in his native county and as a boy trudged off each morning to the district school and therein mastered the common branches of learning. The periods of vacation were largely devoted to farm work and when eighteen years of age he began teaching school, following the profession for eight years and proving a capable educator, his ability being manifest in the readiness with which he imparted to others the knowledge that he had acquired. He then took up the work of the ministry and joined the Muskingum Annual Conference of the Methodist Protestant Church in 1882. Three years later he came to Butler as pastor of the church of that denomination at this place. He afterward accepted a call from the church at Wellsville, Ohio, but in 1896 returned to Butler, where he has since made his home. He is supernumerary assistant to the pastor here and is on the retired list for the time being that he may care for his own and his wife's father during the evening of their lives. When circumstances permit, however, he will again take up the active work of the ministry, for his interest in the work has never abated nor his zeal for the cause slackened. He now controls one hundred acres of land, of which he owns one-third, and from which he derives a good rental. His portion lies within the corporation limits of Butler.
    Mr. Scott has been married twice. On the 1st of June, 1887, he wedded Margaret Craig, who was born July 21, 1854, and died in September, 1896. Following her demise he married her sister, Miss Marilla A. Craig, on the 28th of September, 1897. She was born March 19, 1861, and by this marriage there is one child, Paul Craig Scott, born November 6, 1898. Mrs. Scott is a daughter of James A. and Mary Ann (Eicher) Craig. The father was born October 17, 1826, and makes his home with Mr. and Mrs. Scott, as does the former's father. Mr. Craig's parents were Joseph and Margaret (Spear) Craig. The former was born January 29, 1797, in Pennsylvania, and died on what is now the Scott home in Butler, July 7, 1887, at the venerable age of ninety years and six months. His wife, who was born in the Keystone state, October 29, 1801, died here, May 11, 1884, at the age of eighty-two years and six months. The family is noted for longevity. Mrs. Scott's grandfather, Joseph Craig, came to Richland county in 1828 and purchased eighty acres of land, which constitutes a part of what is now the Scott farm. In the midst of the unbroken wilderness he built a log cabin, which was without windows or doors until after Christmas, blankets being hung up at the openings for protection. Here the family lived in true pioneer style and when company came they utilized pumpkins for chairs. Upon this farm is a spring which has been piped into Butler and furnishes water for a large portion of the population. Joseph Craig continued to follow farming throughout life and was one of the most scientific and successful agriculturists of this section. His son, James Craig, conducted a tanyard in Butler for many years and also took contracts for clearing timber from land. He would buy land, clear it of the timber and then sell it again, and in this way made a good profit on his investment. He has now reached the evening of his life and in his declining days has the care and tender devotion of his daughter and son-in-law.
    When twelve years of age Mary Ann (Eicher) Craig's mother became an invalid and the daughter not only cared for her during life, but took her place at the loom and spinning-wheel during winter months but was able to reap as many dozens of grain with the sickle as any man. Besides her own home duties she promptly and cheerfully responded to the many summons from the sickrooms throughout the neighborhood. Her home beside the spring on the hillside was ever open to the minister of the gospel, her purse and pantry to the hungry, her sympathy and love to the tempted and sorrowing, and her words of counsel and fervent prayers a pillar of cloud by day and of fire by night around and about her home and kindred. To her the words of Scripture might have been aptly given: "She seeketh wool and flax and worketh willingly with her hands.
    "She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.
    "She stretcheth out her hand to the poor: yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
    "She openeth her mouth with wisdom and in her tongue is the law of kindness.
    "Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her."—Proverbs 31:13-31.
    Mrs. Scott is a graduate of the high school of Fort Wayne, Indiana, of the class of 1882, and in early womanhood she engaged in teaching near Mount Vernon, Ohio, and successfully followed that profession until she had to give up her school work to care for her father and mother. She has taken care of nine old people in all, each one being over seventy years of age. In this regard she is certainly doing a noble work and one which entitles her to the esteem and admiration of all with whom she has been brought in contact. She is the youngest of a family of six children: David, now deceased; Atchison D., living in Richmond, Indiana; Arminda J., the wife of W. Montis, of Des Moines, Iowa; Margaret, who was the first wife of Mr. Scott; Jerusha M., the wife of Francis J. Kanaga, of Fort Wayne, Indiana ; and Mrs. Marilla A. Scott.
    Both Mr. and Mrs. Scott are held in the highest esteem by reason of lives that are exemplary in many respects. Their influence has ever been on the side of right and progress, of justice and truth, and with them Christianity is a matter of daily living and not of Sunday observance alone. It is manifest in their relations with all with whom they come in contact and their unfaltering fidelity to the principles in which they believe.
