    1. [S3321075463] *Book - Bill Rice book on BT Scott, In his book two men are discussed as possible fathers of Benjamin. The first is Henry Atchison against whom Sarah brought a suitin 1789 in Hardy Co, (W)V. The suit was dismissed. The cause of the suit and reason for dismissal are unknown. Because Benjamin Thixton Scott takes the name of Scott in adulthood, Bill Rice concludes that he did so "due to knoledge he had about who his father really was." John Scott, then single, lived next to Sarah Thixton during the year Benjamin was conceived. His father's name was Benjamin. The Scott family was Scotch-Irish and likely followed the convention of naming the first born son after his paternal grandfather. (Reliability: 0).
