Mrs. Nancy A. Scott
At Grand Haven on the 17th Inst., wife of James P. Scott, Esq., in the 40th
year of her age.
Mrs. Scott was of mixed descent - her father being an Indian trader, and her mother a native of the Ojibway tribe. When a child she was placed in the care of the Mackinaw Mission, on Lake Superior, where she received the advantages of education, and embraced the Christian religion. She was a woman of marked personal beauty, quite accomplished, and with much force of character. In every relation in life - as wife, mother, acquaintances and friend - she made her influence felt and respected, in the community in which she lived by whom her many excel, tendicies were fully recognized and high appreciated. Her loss has left a large space in the social and religious circle of the Haven. The funeral, which took place on the 19th last, was attended by almost the entire village, thus testifying the high estimation in which she was held by all ranks and classes of society
