Thayer's Note:

a Even with the enhanced resources online, I in turn find no certain trace of Riley Scott's subsequent life. The one thing I do find is U. S. Patent 991378A, Means for dropping projectiles from aerial crafts, the inventor and original assignee of which is a Riley Estel Scott — an unusual name — filed May 4, 1910 and granted May 2, 1911: shortly after our man's resignation from the Army.
