My Late Grandfather, Thomas Jefferson Scott, of Mcdade, A Naval Veteran of WW2, Korea, and Vietnam, used to tell me stories when I was young, that his Father John Told him, about the relative he was named after who was a Texas Ranger that died in the line of duty. My kids know it. I hope you know this.

Thomas J. Scott Jr.
Possiable relative.
