In 1858, he, his mother and stepfather, William Bond, were relocated to the Bond farm in Cross County, Arkansas. After Mrs. Scott died in 1872, Scott remained there until he was 22 years old. That year he rented 12 acres on the Allen farm. Then in 1876 he rented 35 acres and hired one man to help him. In 1877 he married Magnolia Nash. That same year he rented the entire Allen farm, 2200 acres. After 12 more years he bought his first farm. As time passed, he bought and traded more property.
