"The Old Guy"
Richard SCOTT (aged 23) and Mary HEEPS (aged 17) were married in the Holy Trinity Church in Adelaide, South Australia, on the 04 November 1851.
Just wanted to confirm the marriage for you. Sorry to say the father's names were not recorded in this time period.
I would look at this Re: General Winfield Scott's Descendants
Thanks for the confirmation, I had a year but not a specific date. My son who lives in Adelaide informs me that Richard & Lucy lived in Strathalbyn, SA, and that he was a merchant.
I keep seeing people who are following the Richard Marr Scott line stating that he is the son of Gen Winfield Scott, but I am yet to have this verified. Other than a death notice there does not appear to be any other evidence. I'm not convinced this is enough to put into my tree.
I'll certainly check out the website you speak of, hopefully I can gather the information that will link Richard to winfield. Thank you for the information.
I am new to this site so am not sure how to respond to the comment you left for me but wanted to thank you so very much for being so considerate and kind.
Well, your welcome, was the site I pointed to of any value? Had you been their before? Let me know how you get on, maybe I wil be able to find another site for you to visit.
