Edward & Margaret (Maggie) Mellor Scott
Edward was born March 6, 1893, in Salt Lake City, Utah to Joseph Lemuel and Sarah Jane Hemsley Scott. Maggie was born March 13, 1898, in Belper, England and came to the U.S. in 1907. They were married May 31, 1917, and had four children: Jane Marjorie, Dolores Ada, Virginia Annette, and Edward.
They moved around a bit - in the 1920 census they were in Minkcreek, Idaho and that same year a child was born in Salt Lake City. In 1923 a child was born in Olmstead, Utah and in 1925 their Church records came to Highland. Their records came separately with Maggie's maiden name. In 1929 they had a child while living in Pittsburg, California and that's where they remained the rest of their lives. Edward died November 23, 1970, and Maggie passed September 14, 1976, in Contra Costa County, California and they are buried in the Concord Cemetery.
