Biography*Billy Vessels lived on a farm near Rhodelia, now a vacant field between Mr. Sam Mattingly and Mr. Jim Rhodes, owned by Mr. Arnold. Some sources state that Billy Vessels served during the Civil War in the Confederate forces, but inquires to the Government Services Administration were unable to verify this information. After the death of Mary Emma he married Ellen Wise who had returned from the Sisters of Nazareth Community; this second marriage was childless but Vessels reared some of the children of his sister Cecilia, wife of Samuel Joseph Manning, after the death of Cecilia and Samuel. After the death of Billy, Ellen re-entered the religous life. Having broken her religious vows, she apparently encournted difficulty in finding acceptance into a religious order; but eveidently was accepted by an Order in Indiana, with the assistance, apparently, of Rev. Paul Manning O.F.M. nephew of Billy, whom Ellen and Billy had helped to rear.

Azariah (of Tatum) Scott

FatherTatham 'Tatum' Scott1 b. c 1708, d. b 10 Jan 1748/49
MotherMargaret (-----)1 b. c 1710, d. b 9 Oct 1751

Birth*circa 1728Azariah was born circa 1728 at Northampton Co, VA. Evidently the Scott grandchildren (Mary, Azariah, George and John) named in the will of Mary Scott dated 22 Jan 1752 were all the children of her dec'd son Tatum Scott as there has been no mention of any other Scott children found to date. Evidently at least Azariah Scott was of age during the settlement of Tatum's estate as no guardian was named for him. This would put his birth circa 1728..2 
Will - Grmoth's*22 January 1752Azariah was named in his grandmother's will on 22 January 1752 at Northampton Co, VA. In her will Mary Scott named granddaughter Mary Scott, grandson John Hardin, grandson Azariah Scott, grandson George Scott, grandson John Scott, John Tankard, Mason Smith (female) and daughter-in-law Ansley Hardin.2 
Marriage*circa 1754He married Agnes Costin, daughter of Francis Costin II and Agnes Somers, circa 1754 at Northampton Co, VA. According to Whitelaw in 1750 Francis Costin (wife Agnes) left 110 acres in tract N9 on the bayside to his son Francis. Whitelaw assumed that his wife had been the former Agnes Somers and title to the land had come to him through her and that she had gotten it by the 1703 will of Daniel Neech left his balance of 110 acres to wife Margaret, but if she did not make disposition it was to go to Thomas and Agnes Somers. Whitelaw also conjectured that this Agnes then married Azariah Scott, as 8 years later the death of Costin the Scotts sold the same land to John Wilson. Then in tracing the owership of tract N10 Whitelaw found evidence confirming the previous assumptoin that Francis Costin had married the widow Agnes Somers and that she late married Azariah Scot of tract N9 was found in a deed from the Scotts to Matthew Costin for her dower interest in the land left to him by Francis Costin. (NOTE: One concern here is that the Agnes Somers mentioned in the will of Daniel Neech was born circa 1680 and therefore would have been somewhat older then either Francis Costin or Azariah Scott, but it does support the owership of the land. Perhaps her brother (not husband) Thomas Somers, who died intestate in 1728, had a daughter Agnes who inherited the land and married Costin and Scott.)3 
Court - defendant*10 July 1754Azariah (of Tatum) Scott was a defendant in a court case on 10 July 1754 at Northampton Co, VA. In a case of Thomas Respess plantif against Azariah Scott defendent, the deft. being arrested and not appearing, on the motion of the pltf. by George Holden his attorney. It is ordered that unless the said deft. shall appear here at the next court, and answer the plft's action. Judgement shall then be given for the pltf against him and John Fitchet was returned as security for his appearance and for damages and cost.4 
Land sold*12 November 1754He sold land on 12 November 1754 at tract N10, Cedar Grove, Northampton Co, VA. An indenture of bargin and sale between Azariah Scott and Agnes his wife to Matthew Costin as shown in the Northampton County Orders 1753-1758 as transcribed by Walczyk does not mention her dower rights or anything else that implies that Agnes was a widow before she married Azariah Scott, which is contray to Whitelaw's statement on page 75 (tract N10) that she was selling her dower interset. However, the deed itself may contain more details in this regard. The assumption at this point is that this Agnes was the daughter of Francis Costin & his 2nd wife Agnes Somers.5 
Lawsuit Named in*June 1755He was named in a lawsuit in June 1755 at Northampton Co, VA. Michael Dixon who was indebted to Azariah Scott for one case of brandy. The most interesting lawsuit was from Sept 1756 when Azariah petitioned against John Tyler for entering his close by force of arms several times during the month of May 1756. John Tyler is accused of destroying 100 panels of fence and the corn by walking and riding over the area with horses, cattle & hogs.6 
Court - nam in petit*April 1756He was named in a petition that was recorded in court records in April 1756 at Northampton Co, VA. The petitioners signed below beg that their Bridle Road may not be stopped by Ezeriah Scot but let it go as it was for many years. This is from the Main Road to John Tyler's Landing which is between William Jones and Ezeriah Scott. Signed: John Tyler, Babel Scot, Robert Trower, John Dixon, Michael Dixon, Thomas Spady and John Fitchett. The petition was "rejected at the April Court 1756, but no entry made." (NOTE: Although no location is indicated in the petition, it concerns land in the very lower section of N'hamp County where petitioners are known to have lived.)7 
Will - Mentioned in*14 July 1758Azariah was mentioned in a will on 14 July 1758 at Northampton Co, VA. In his will William Jones gave his wife Grace the 50 acre plantation that I now live upon lying between Thomas Spady's plantation and Azariah Scott's.8 
Death*before 11 February 1789He died before 11 February 1789 at Northampton Co, VA. It was on this date that administration on the estate of Azariah Scott was granted to Thomas Widgeon. (NOTE: Thomas Widgeon was married to Azariah’s niece, Susanna Costin). The Appraisers were: John Parsons, William Parsons (married to Azariah’s niece), Jacob Moore (brother of Azariah’s daughter-in-law, Elizabeth Scott), and Francis Costin (Azariah’s nephew).9,1
