The Scott Family
Harry Scott was born in 1763 in Maryland. He was enslaved on the Newtown Manor plantation for most of his life. Harry and his wife, Dinah (b.1770), had six children together: John (b. ABT 1785), Clare (b.1789), Bennet (b.1793), Ann (b.1796), Nicolas (b.1796), and Rose Anne (b.1814).
In their old age, Harry and Dinah remained in Maryland while their children and grandchildren were sold in 1838. Of Harry and Dinah’s children, the four whom lived to adulthood were purchased by Jesse Batey and transported to Louisiana on the Katharine Jackson.
Bennet and his wife Clare traveled to Louisiana with seven of their own children. Harry and Dinah died some time after 1838, living to at least 75 years old and 68 years old, respectively.
