Term: Scott [origin of place name]
Definition: Or "Liberty" as it was first named, was set off from Green Bay in Nov., 1859... The name "Liberty" did not suit John P. Arndt.., and he proposed instead "Pochequette"... but Robert Gibson urged "Scott" probably in honor of Sir Walter, and this name was finally adopted.
