Marion Harold Scott was born on November 27, 1932, to Harold and Bertha Jane Scott. Marion
was the oldest of five children and was raised on the family ranch in northern Campbell County homesteaded by his grandparents in 1917. He spent most of his life horseback working side by side with his father to operate and grow the ranch. Marion turned 17 in the winter of ’49. To keep the cows fed through the winter, each day he loaded 400-500 pounds of cake on two pack horses to feed their cows stranded in the snow. When the winter did not break, he and his dad trailed the cows several miles down the Middle Prong Road against the wind in below zero degree temperature. During the Korean War he served in the Army National Guard for eight years. Marion married Mary McClure in 1953 and raised four daughters on the ranch. Marion and Mary continued outfitting and operated P Cross Bar Outfitters for 60+ years.
