I'm trying to find a Scott family genealogist, cause I'd like to find out if I have any living Scott ancestors still around. Herbert W. Scott is my great great uncle and he married Amanda E. Sanderson and had 8 kids: Edna,Ethel,Jack,Rae,Carrie,Willis,Albert and Grant.

I am not related, but, I am wondering why you are looking in Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada? I would suspect any of your Scott relatives would be in Michigan.

From what I'm finding, Herbert's grandfather, Collin Scott, left Ontario, Canada, and moved to Sanilac County, Michigan, sometime between Herbert's father's birth (i.e. William Scott)in 1848 in Pickering Twp., Ontario County, Ontario, Canada, and 1850. Collin and his family were on the 1850 Census for Lexington, Sanilac, Michigan, where Herbert's father, William, was shown as a 2 year old.

Herbert W. Scott was born 1874 in Michigan and he died there. His parents married in Sanilac Co., Michigan on May 4 1873.

See Find a Grave: for dates & tombstone photos for Herbert's family & his parents. - lists Herbert's children and parents.

Herbert's father's death register is viewable on Seeking Michigan -
William Scott b. June 20 1848 Ontario, Canada d. Aug 11 1904, Lexington Twp., Sanilac Co.; his parents were "Colon" Scott b. NY & Rhoda Summers b. England on this register. Herbert was the informant.

William Scott was shown as being born in Pickering Twp., Ontario County, Ontario, Canada, in 1848 & his father was shown as "Collins" Scott (d. Croswell 1893) , per William's funeral display (photo is here and a contact person who submitted this photo; so perhaps you could contact Bill Steele- if you click on his name his e-mail address comes up):

on Ancestry it has:
Collin Scott b. 1808 NY State, died aft. 1870 Michigan; Rhoda Summers shown as b. 1813/1814 England and died aft. 1870 MI. Had 6 children. His father was shown as Asahel Scott and his mother as Lydia.

In 1850, Collin(s) & Rhoda were living in Lexington, Sanilac, Michigan, per the census.
Collins Scott M 42 New York
Rhoda Scott F 36 England
Orin Scott M 16 Canada
Philo Scott M 14 Canada
Amelia Scott F 9 Canada
Hannah Scott F 7 Canada
William Scott M 2 Canada
Note- He was also shown living in Sanilac Co., on the Census for 1860 (as Colin), 1870 (as Collins) & 1880 (as Collin.

also in Croswell, Sanilac Co., Michigan, was Edna Scott -
Edna Scott (July 23 1906-apr 30 1996) married William Thibdaue (Dec 30 1902-11 Aug. 1984)
14 January 2010 Donald W. Thibdaue, Croswell Michigan.

You have found one, and welcome to the family circle. Willis Herbert Scott (his legal name, although always known as "Herb", was my grandfather. I remember him and Amanda, always known as "Mandy" very well. Many of their descendants are still around, most in the vicinity of Lexington, Michigan, and there is a family reunion on the first Sunday of each August. Their son Rae was my father, but neither he nor any of their siblings survive. I assume you are descended from Herb's sister, Georgie, but I am looking forward to talking to you. I am Ronald Scott at or please call at 713.466.0532. Please call at your convenience.
