Joseph Scattergood (1774-1824) was the son of Thomas and Elizabeth (Bacon) Scattergood. He married Ann Rogers in 1801. Scattergood was an Elder of Green St. Monthly Meeting who signed the first letter of concern by the elders of Philadelphia to Elias Hicks regarding the doctrine he was preaching, in 1822. In 1823 he also signed the second letter. Because of this, he was put out of eldership for being "out of unity," but he was later reinstated by the Philadelphia Quarterly Meeting. Joseph Scattergood died June, 1824 in Philadelphia.
