Biography
History of Harrison County, pages 371 and 372:

Robert D. Scott, an enterprising and progressive member of the Scott Mercantile Company, of New Hampton, Missouri was born September 20, 1896, the son of J. L. and Mary P. (Davis) Scott. Mr. and Mrs. J. L. Scott were natives of Virginia, but settled here early in life, where they lived for a few years, then moved to Ridgeway and farmed for a while, but later returned to New Hampton where Mr. Scott entered the harness business; he has been successfully engaged in shoe repairing business for the past ten years. He was also scale master for a number of years.

Robert D. Scott was educated in the schools of New Hampton and spent one year at Park College in Parkville, Missouri. He enlisted in Company G. 139th infantry, June 21, 1916 and went to the Mexican border with Company G. He returned March 5, 1917, and August 5, 1917 he was called again into service and went to Camp Doniphan, Oklahoma, where he remained for nine months, and was sent overseas, April 22, 1918. He was on the front lines for four months with his division in the battle of St. Mihiel and Meuse Argonne. He was mustered out May 8, 1919 with a term of service almost three years to his credit.

The Scott Mercantile Company, of which Elmer and Robert D. Scott are proprietors, succeeded Scott and Nickerson in June, 1921. This firm carries a full line of groceries, shoes, dry goods and ladies' and menĀ“s ready-to-wear merchandise. The store is neatly kept and goods are nicely displayed. The building is 50x100 feet with basement under the entire store, and the basement is used for plumbing and storage. The ladies' and gent's read-to-wear department is on the balcony of the first floor. The firm has a large business, for more than the average store in cities of this size, owing, no doubt, to the progressive and hustling activities of the proprietors.

Robert D. Scott was married January 17, 1918 to Agnes G. Roleke, a daughter of Herman and Rachel Roleke, of Bethany, Missouri.

Mr. Scott is a member of the Knights of Pythias, Knights of Karrason and is chancellor commander for the Knights of Pythias lodge, No. 285. He is a charter member of the American Legion and is at present Post Commander.

Mr. Scott is well known in New Hampton and surrounding country and has many friends.
