John actually didn’t commit a crime. His brother William did and was Executed at the Cross of Glasgow, on Wednesday, the 3d of December, 1788, for the crime of House-breaking and Theft. The sheriff implicated John because William visited him and his wife and stayed for a few days.
I have my family history from John Scott’s birth right down to me.
