"Other" John Scott family

John Scott b. before 1765, possibly in New York or England  d. after 1820 Indiana or Illinois.  Shows in the 1810 census in Logan county, Kentucky (12001-31010) and the 1820 census in Crawford county Indiana (001102-01001).  I assume those are the same John Scott because Edward H. Hall, father of Mary Ann "Polly" Hall Scott (wife of Robert, below) lived in Logan county himself before moving to Dubois county Indiana, and that is where Polly married Robert Scott- so the connection from John Scott to Logan county is through Robert Scott.  If Robert is not the son of this John, then John probably lived in another county in Kentucky before coming to Indiana.

John's wife's name is unknown, but there was a John Scott who married Jenny Davis 10 Feb 1808 Logan co. Ky., and there was no other John Scott in the 1810 census for Logan county, so it seems likely that Jenny Davis was born 1765-1775, died some time after 1820, and was not the mother of the following children.

In the 1830 census, Robert Scott is living in Dubois co. Ind, very near to Henry & Elizabeth Buckner, while the rest of the family (without father John) is living in Vermillion co. Ill.  Robert and his family were in Bureau co. Ill in 1840 (and beyond), while John and Thomas and their families, William C.'s widow and children, and Henry & Elizabeth Buckner's son William C. Buckner are in Fulton co. Ill. in 1840 (and beyond).

John Scott himself seems to be the father of 8 children:
