Dr. Herbert S. Turner, D.D., a minister, educator and local historian, compiled the family’s genealogical history in his book “The Scott Family of Hawfields”, which was published in 1961.  The Scott Collection has several copies of this book and other genealogical materials available for review.  In addition to the Scott ancestors, local surnames Hughes, Graham, Kerr, Murray, Bryan and others are highlighted.

Genealogists and other researchers are welcome to use the collection for their family research and other tidbits of local history.  Some restrictions may apply.  Please contact the curator, Peggy Boswell, for details.  (336) 506-4203.
