Scott, Sharp, & Shields

Edward and 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.            

William Sharp:  Too many William Sharp’s to define for certain which one lived in Highland.  NOI

Thelma Shields:  She is shown as a Sunday School teacher in 1931-32 but I can locate no one by that name with a Highland connection.
