Scott, George, Dd
Scott, George, D.D.
a Reformed Presbyterian minister, was born at Clogher, County Tyrone, Ireland, July 26, 1805, of parents who came of the Covenanter stock, and was well educated. In 1822 he came to America, and, after a short engagement in mercantile pursuits, joined the church of Dr. Samuel B. Wylie, in Philadelphia, by whom he was encouraged to prepare for the ministry. By teaching school, and the most severe economy, he completed his studies privately, and after licensure travelled as an evangelist for some time, but at length was ordained pastor of the Reformed Presbyterian congregations at Little Beaver, Pennsylvania, and Austintown, Ohio, April 19, 1831. He afterwards confined his care to the former, until his resignation, October 1, 1880. He died December 16, 1881. Dr. Scott was a most honored, faithful, and successful pastor.
