Thank's Susan, Richard Scott was supposed to have come from England on the same ship as Lucy Heeps, but i can't find him on the passenger list, maybe he was crew?
Where did you find he was born in Alabama?
I am curious about why he went to England and then Australia.

I have sent you information from the South Australian Library.
Just check your e-mail.
I tried to find him on that ship the China and he is not listed. I think an error could have been made by some-one in the South Australian research department about the ship.
