He moved to Coshocton County, Ohio, in 1836. Our archive records the steps he took to become a lawyer in Ohio. The earliest item, from February 1, 1832, is the certificate admitting him to practice in New York. The other items are addressed to the Ohio Supreme Court. Two letters, from September 6 and 23, 1836 are professional and character references from Ohio lawyers. A letter from Scott certifies that he has lived in Ohio since October 1835 and intends to become an Ohio citizen. A document from September (?) 24, 1836, states that Scott passed his examination by a committee of Ohio lawyers. The final document, which is undated and unsigned, states that Scott has been admitted to practice.
