I am searching for information on John Scott, who died sometime between 2 Dec 1727 (when his will was written) and 30 Jul 1727 (when his will inventory was filed). He married Margaret James and they had one daughter who I think was named Sara. They had another daughter named Margaret, but John died before she was born (his will leaves provisions for her, varying on whether or not she was a boy or girl). Before Margaret Jr. was born, however, Margaret James Scott remarried to John Garrett, so when Margaret Jr. was born she as given the surname Garrett. She later went on to marry James Mundell.
I believe that John Scott died in Kennett Twp, Chester County, Pennsylvania since that is where he was living when his will was written. He mentions having brothers and a sister but does not mention them by name. His inventory, however, pays money to a Providence Scott, so I am wondering if this is his sister.
