DEATH: OBITUARY FOR HENRY GEORGE SCOTT
THE GATES AJAR' OPENED FOR A FRIEND OF OURS:
Sixty-seven years ago the 2nd day of last December there came to the balmy shores of England a life which was destined to lift the world a little higher by giving it another worthy, kindly man. Henry Scott ever lived and walked among the common men and common things, but as each oak which grows true and strong shields the breaking wind from weaker ones and as the simple lovely violet lends its beauty and its fragrance to all who will come near, so this man by growing true and strong helped others in life's battle. And by developing a tender, kindly spirit brought to those around a silent precious influence like the fragrant beauty of a modest flower.
The sterner and the gentler virtues were mingled in our friend, so that men not only honored his integrity but they measured back to him the love he gave. Neighbors speak of the real neighbor they have lost, the schoolboys miss the kindly face and heart, and all of us who knew him feel like the little friend of Phillips Brooks, when she exclaimed on being told that he had gone, "Won't the angels be glad to see him!"
Mr. Scott moved from England to America twenty-three years ago and one year afterward settled in Robbinsdale, which has been his home since then. Our townsmen honored him with the highest office in their power to give and he filled the chair of Mayor with credit to himself and honor to the place he held.
A family consisting of wife and seven children are left behind with a sorrow at the parting but with a firm hope of a reunion beyond all care and pain, for our friend early sought and found and always tried to follow the One who came to guide men home to God.
The last days were full of pain, but also with a peace too deep for pain. On the day preceding the departure as his pastor left him, Mr. Scott remarked, "If I am not here when you come back it is all right." His pastor came again and Mr. Scott was gone, but those who were with him believe that it is indeed "All right."
***************************************************
CARD OF THANKS We desire to thank the many friends and neighbors who have so kindly aided us in so many ways during the illness of our beloved father and husband. We assure each and everyone, we are grateful, and appreciate it all more then words can tell. Sincerely: Mrs. Henry Scott and family

  Notes for Elizabeth Louise Vine:
[NancyFitch.FTW]

BIOGRAPHY: Elizabeth Louise Vine was born in England 11 May 1845. Shewas the daughter of William and Harriet Vine. I was told she was Irish, but born in England. The Irish part is undocumented

OCCUPATION: She was a homemaker

DEATH: Letter from Louise Vine Scott's daughter Caroline announcing her death, dated Oct. 3, 1918 [Caroline lived at R.R. No. Lake Bay, Washington]. After Louise's husband Henry George Scott died, she went to live with Caroline and died while there.
Dear Brother and Sister,
I am writing this to tell you the sad news that Mother has left us. She passed away on the morning of Sept. 30th at twenty minutes after 8. She was conscious till the last. She knew she could not live, but she had no fear and she was anxious to go and amidst all the pain and suffering she was so happy with the thought of going.
We buried her yesterday. Oct 2nd at Long Branch Cemetery. She looked so nice in her coffin, with a smile on her face. We shall miss her so much but we know she is so much better off.
It was beautiful the way she talked to those that came in to see her. Asked them to meet her over there. We cannot grieve as those who have no hope. Because we know if we are faithful, we shall all meet again over there and I don't think it will be long at the longest. The years fly by so swiftly. What a glorious meeting with all our loved ones again, just waiting for us over there. Not a doubt or a fear, but with a longing to go home.
She suffered so dreadful, the last week. She had hardening of the liver and doctor said she had a cancer, but that was not very bad yet, it was the liver enlarged and hardened that caused her death.
We never told her she had a cancer. The doctor told us not too, as it would do no good and perhaps make her feel worse. But you may guess how she suffered with that liver pressing on everything. She suffered so with her breathing.
We could not wish her back to suffer so. And the dear Lord knows what is best for us all. So we must submit to His will. I hope when my time comes to go, I will be as happy and ready to go as she was.
What do you think of their calling all these men in the draft? My boy is in that and I suppose will have to go. Lizzie's oldest boy is in France, and another is expecting to go anytime now. Isn't it sad, but the Lord will not give us burdens more than we can bear, so faith can safely trust Him come what may.
So now I must say good bye for this time with love from us all.
From you Loving Sister. Carrie
Mother died at our home, Lizzie and I both took care of her during her last sickness. We done everything we could for her. She had everything she wanted, and we got anything she could eat for her, but she could not eat anything the last day or two.

[NancyFitch.FTW]

BIOGRAPHY: WRITTEN BY GREAT-NIECE NANCY N. FITCH IN 1987:
Louisa Scott was born at Bournemouth England, 11 Jul 1874. She was the daughter of Henry and Louise [Vine] Scott. She immigrated to the America, with her family at the age of fourteen. She had a new hat for the occasion, as she stood on he boat, waving goodby, a strong gust of wind blew it from her head, into the ocean. She felt so badly, she never forgot it, and has passed the story on to her children, and grandchildren.
Nola Mills [a niece of Louise's husband Charles Prestidge] remembers Louise whistling a silent whistle through her teeth, as she peeled potatoes at her daughter Julia's hotel in Robbinsdale. She always listened to the radio, as she worked. She listened to KSTP, but could never keep the call letters straight and called it KPTS or whatever other combination of letters popped into her head.
I remember her always having greeting cards for me to glue into scrapbooks when I visited her. I remember being alone with her at her home quite often. My father was ill at the time and when he had to see the Dr. in Minneapolis, our neighbor [George Dupont from Dupont Furniture in North Minneapolis] would give him and my mother a ride into town, from Rockford. They would drop me off at the hotel. I remember chasing her Grandson Jimmy MacDonald through the basement of the hotel and getting lost. I opened a wrong door trying to find the steps, standing inside the room was one man in an army uniform and another completely naked. It was my first sex education class. At least the first time I had seen a naked man.
Lillian [Scott] Snodgrass [Louise's niece] remembers the time that Aunt Lou who couldn't or at least didn't sew, bought a sewing machine from a door to door salesman. She paid sixty dollars for it. Her husband Charlie was UPSET. Louisa cried and threatened to go to Washington to be with her sisters, if he didn't let her keep it. She kept it.
