The Patrick Scott named in this index of the death record is definitely, Patrick Scott father of Ellen Rose Scott, as the address shown on the index, 132 West 109th Street, NY, is the known address of Ellen Scott and Thomas Francis O'Connor in this time period.

The address, 132 West 109th Street, New York, NY,  is recorded in the 1915 New York Census entry for the O'Connor family.

132 West 109th Street, New York, NY is also the address in the 1917 Draft Record of Anthony Aloysius O'Connor, grandson of Pat Scott.

The age is obviously recorded incorrectly in the New York Municipal Deaths index. Patrick Scott's year of birth is variously recorded as 1849 in the genealogy records of Alice O'Connor, 1855 in the 1900 US Census, and 1850 in the 1910 US Census.

Of note, the birth dates of every single member of the O'Connor family are incorrect in the 1900 US Census. Whoever informed the enumerator was completely uninformed.

The informant for the death record was likely Pat Scott's daughter Ellen Rose Scott. The information detailed in the death record for Patrick Scott matches the genealogy record compiled by Alice O'Connor, granddaughter of Pat Scott. The only inconsistent detail is the date of burial, which Alice O'Connor has as 20 February 1916 from cemetery records and the New York death record has the burial date as 19 February 1916.

The New York Death record confirms the names of Patrick Scott's parents as William Scott and Anne Foster.

William Scott and Anne Foster are also named as Patrick Scott's parents in Aunt Alice O'Connor's genealogy records and the 1869 Catholic Parish Marriage Register for Patrick Scott and Catherine (Kate) Fadden.
