David C. Scott

   One of the oldest residents of Tobacco township, David C. Scott, died Friday, April 15, of bright's disease, aged 74. Mr. Scott settled in Tobacco in 1878, where his family was reared and he cleared a large farm. He was born in Ireland in 1836, and was united in marriage there in 1862 to Letitia Dow (a sister to the late James G. Dow of Tobacco), who survives. To the union were born three sons and three daughters, of whom five of the children are living: William J. of Tobacco, James of Beaverton, and Norman of Flint; Eliza, married to Aaron Lince, lives at Shroeder, Minn., Hattie, married to Walter Fairchild, lives in Benzie county.

   Mr. Scott settled in Lewis county, N.Y., in 1865, there residing until coming to Gladwin county. He was a member of the Presbyterian church. The esteem in which he was held was attested by the large attendance of old friends and neighbors at the funeral held Sunday at the residence at Dale, where burial took place.
