Chapter IX

Robert Scalf

Robert Scalf, son of John Scalf and Edeah Carlisle Scalf, was born in 1819 in Russell County, Virginia. His date of birth has been learned from a review of his military record as Robert was a soldier in the Union Army in the Civil War. Robert Scalf enlisted in the 49th Kentucky Volunteer Infantry, Co. F as a private on June 1, 1863. He mustered in at Camp Nelson, Kentucky on September 19, 1863 and he was discharged on December 26, 1864 at Lexington, Kentucky. Robert received a land grant in Clay County where he lived part of his life. The land grant that he received was for 50 acres on Ground Hog Fork of Otter Creek.

Robert was one of three Scalf brothers who came into Kentucky in the early 1830's. The brothers who came with him were Peter Scalf and Jesse Scalf. Robert and his brother, Peter married in Clay County on the same day, which was October 18, 1835. Robert married Patsy Jackson, daugbter of Lewis Jackson and Susan Hubbard Jackson. Robert went to Perry County shortly after he married Patsy. The author believes Robert went from Perry County to that area of Kentucky, which later became Bell County before returning later to Clay County prior to 1850. Robert Scalf and his son, Greenberry Scalf, joined the Union Army on the same day. However, Greenberry died at Camp Burnside a short time later. Many descendants of Robert Scalf live in Indiana.
