ROBERT E. SCOTT, retired farmer, Augusta, was born in Roxburyshire, Scotland, Dec. 22, 1820; came to America in the Spring of 1844; first located in town of Oakland, Jefferson Co., Wis.; he was engaged in farming there until 1850, when he moved to Cambridge, Dane Co.; there he carried on hotel for three years; afterward in mercantile business until he came to the town of Otter Creek, Eau Claire Co., where he located on Sec. 9, in what is now known as Scott's Valley, it having acquired that name from the fact that he was the first settler in that locality. He resided there until 1877, when he removed to Augusta. For many years he was Chairman of the Town Board of Otter Creek, and for eighteen years held the office of Justice of the Peace in that town. He was first married in the town of Oakland, Jefferson Co., Wis., to Helen Moore, a native of Dumfrieshire, Scotland. She died Oct. 1, 1876, leaving two sons, Charles W. and John M. Mr. Scott's present wife is Charlotte R. Ball, who was born in Ohio. They have two children, Esther Pearl and Ruby Mary. Mr. Scott started the Otter Creek Farmers' Insurance Company, which is a successful and flourishing institution, now having a business of over $200,000.
