John Welwood Scott (ca.1777-1844) was a Presbyterian, and was the author of An historical sketch of the Pine Street: or, Third Presbyterian Church in the city of Philadelphia (1837), where he was a member.  He corresponded with Thomas Jefferson regarding his patronage for a proposed publication. He "was a Philadelphia printer and publisher of both secular and religious material. Probably a native of Nova Scotia, he published the Philadelphia Repository and Weekly Register for 1804 at his shop on Bank Street. In 1809, he solicited subscribers, including Thomas Jefferson, for a proposed publication of a volume of Joseph McCoy’s poetry.  Scott later ran a bookstore at 147 Chestnut Street where, in 1813, he published Scott’s Philadelphia Price Current and Commercial Remembrancer as well as The Religious Remembrancer, reputedly the first weekly religious newspaper in the United States." - The Papers of Thomas Jefferson, vol. 39, 13 November 1802–3 March 1803.
