Members of the Scott Family will hold a reunion May 22nd at Hickory Grove Baptist Church. The family is descended from John Tilton Scott and his mother Caroline Lassiter. The local coordinator of the reunion is Louise Long.
Caroline Lassiter was born in 1839 in Alabama. She is pictured with her first husband Joseph Thomas Kanada. Her son John Tilten Scott was born in 1874 and died in 1930. Scott is pictured as a 4-year old. Lassiter died in 1878.
Louise Long has many scrapbooks and old photos of family members. At 87-years young, Long has a sharp memory of the members of her family tree. Long said, “We had never had a family reunion. I wanted to try and get everyone together.”
Members of the Scott, Kanada, and related families are invited to the reunion May 22nd. Long said, “We’ll gather at Hickory Grove Baptist Church about 10:00 am. Everyone bring a covered dish for lunch.”
