There are three Scott families on this page. Or one. Depends on your perspective.
Honoring a fallen sibling or perpetuating a family curse? Could be neither!
A curious thing happened to these online memorials as a result of my research.
Broken Unions, Part Three. Willis and William Scott were admitted to the hospital with typhoid fever. A third brother, Sergeant John Henry Scott, remained with their unit. All were fighting for their lives.
Rumors of secession and war spread like fire. The Union was breaking, but for William Scott and his wife, their union was stronger than ever.
