Scott, Joseph C., was born in Boston, Mass., January 24, 1832, and is a son of Curtis B. Scott, who was a carpenter by trade. Joseph Scott attended the public schools and at the age of eighteen went to sea, which he followed for two years. Later he served his apprenticeship at carpentering, and in September, 1854, began working for the New York Central Railroad Co. as brakeman and was afterward promoted to the position of fireman. In 1862 he became an engineer for that company and is still in active service. He has two sons who are engineers with the New York Central Railroad Co., and who learned firing with their father.
