Scotts of Queen Anne's County, MD

DNA leads me to believe our Emanuel County, GA Scotts are descendants of Nathaniel and Ann Scott of QA. Nathaniel died there by 1742. Two of his grandsons. William and Nathaniel, migrated to Anson County, NC and receiving land grants there in the early 1770s. I believe our Scott line is descended from William who migrated on to Burke County, GA by the mid 1780s. I would love to hear from anyone with knowledge of these Scotts of QA CO MD or Anson Co. NC.

Finding my Great-Grandfather

The family mystery is what happened to my great-grandfather.  I know when he was baptized and married but my grandfather and great-grandmother immigrated to the US without him.  Apparently, my great-grandmother did not say much about her husband.  I have found no death records for him that I can definitely identify.  I did find someone with the same name who was in Pancho Villa's army and famously killed by George Patton.  Can't confirm his identity either.  
Please help.  I need to know where to look next.   I'd love to give my 92 year old father this information.
