Through it, she has made contact with two cousins: Jeff Scott of Livonia, Michigan, and Pamela Riley of Knoxville, Tennessee. All were concentrating on their Scott ancestry in Adair and Metcalfe Counties.

Jeff Scott of Livonia, Michigan, recently visited Adair and Metcalfe Counties to research his ancestors.
Jeff has roots in both Adair and Metcalfe Counties, in Kentuckythat reach back into the early 1800's when his ancestors moved herefrom Virginia, after coming to this country from England.
He credits his mother with first sparking an interest in his familyhistory about ten years ago, and he has been actively involved intheir research ever since. Just recently Jeff, accompanied by hismother, made a trip to this area checking old family cemeteries andrecords in the adjoining counties of Metcalfe and Adair.
The internet is a wonderful tool for finding family information. Idiscovered that fact a few months ago when, out of the blue, I receivedan email from Jeff, a cousin in Michigan who had read my name in the Columbia Magazine!
My great grandfather and Jeff's (g-grandfather many times over) were brothers, Moses and Winfield Scott! Winfield was also the grandfather of Mrs. Cynthia Stapp Coleman of Edmonton who may still be remembered here by some, and he was the father of long-time politician of Metcalfe County, Mike Scott, who died in the mid 40's.
Jeff is the second cousin to discover me while doing Scott family research on the internet.
The first was Pamela Riley of Knoxville Tn. and her husband Mike. Initial phone visits resulted in trips here to see the Scott family farm and cemetery.
Without Internet and email (and a little help from Attorney Herb Sparks too!) I would never have known either relative. That would have been a great loss to me.
Learning about these family members has been such a joy! -Geniece Leftwich Marcum, Columbia, KY, July 10, 2011
