Wondering if Mr. W. W. Scott, mentioned in the following, might be any relation to Leonard Allen Scott, who won the naming contest for the Arrow. I've seen photos of a few Scotts in the books I have, and have often wondered if there might be some connection farther back up the family tree.

Have also been curious to know if anyone has any info on a wreck near Eggleston in the area of the "blue hole" where some of the water in the New River goes underground for a bit. I've been told some of the equipment was never pulled from the river, and if the date is right this could be the wreck where Leonard Scott first worked for the N&W.

Any info on either of these questions would be appreciated.
