The Lott Family of Marion County, Mississippi

 

Richard L. Tolman, Ph. D.

 

     The Lotts were among the first settlers1 of Marion County, Mississippi about 1806; they came from Tattnall County, Georgia. They came to Georgia from Edgecombe County, North Carolina in the early 1760’s. Everyone pretty much agrees that the Lotts came from Virginia to North Carolina, but that is where the agreement ends.

     Considering all sources, genealogists and naïve family tree builders are pretty much divided about whether the Mississippi Lotts came to Virginia from the Netherlands or Southern England.2 There is an unsubstantiated report,3 widely cited, that three Lott brothers (Emsley, Jesse, and John) came from Holland ‘in 1770’ {sic, should be 1670?} to settle on Long Island, New York. They were driven out by the British when they moved in on New Amsterdam (New York City) in the late 17th century. The record4 shows that a Pieter Lott immigrated in 1652 and settled in Flatbush, Kings, New York; he had children Engelbert (b. abt 1650), Hendrick (b. 10 May 1654), Pieter (b. 1656), Catrina, Johannes (John), and Abraham (b. 1670). The immigrant Pieter Lott was born5 1626 at Reynerwout in Drenten (Drenthe), Netherlands the son of Engelbret and Sarah (Jennings) Lott; Sarah was English, born Hingham, Norfolk, England. The family is reported to be of French Huguenot origin.6 Engelbret was the son of Pieter (b. 1572) and Susanna (Reast) Lott of Drenthe; Engelbret was born 1600 in Drenthe and died 1631 in Walden, Essex, England. The Dutch family Lott of Flatbush, Kings, Long Island is documented in detail in A. V. Phillips The Lott Family in America7 and although there is ample opportunity for a link to the North Carolina Lotts, none is proven or suggested.

     Alternatively, the Lotts might have originated in Nonington Parish, Kent, England. The immigrant William Lott and his wife Agnes Kingston arrived at Isle of Wight County, Virginia before 1662.8 It is not straightforward to connect these Lotts to the first Lott of this descendency, John Lott I, as the records are not there.

     Of course, this author chose to believe the Dutch ancestry because it is so much better documented. But, facts are facts and one is not really free to choose among alternatives. Just on an off-chance, the author checked FamilyTreeDNA to see if any data were available on Lotts. Eureka—wonderful Y-DNA data9 that answers critical questions!

     FYI, Y-DNA is the piece of chromosome 3 which specifies all the male hormone receptors and messenger proteins that are necessary to become a biological male (59 million base-pairs). The importance of this is that females do not possess these genes; and hence all males must inherit this piece of DNA unaltered from their fathers. The base-pair sequence of Y-DNA can be traced back for thousands of years. Roughly 2 mutations occur each generation and occasionally one of these mutations occurs in one of the key monitoring loci (when you have your Y-DNA sequenced they sequence the whole thing, but monitor specific highly-variable loci—typically 37 sites for the cheapest test—it can be expanded to 67 sites for more money). Based on the mutations that have occurred at each of these loci, your Y-DNA is placed in a ‘Haplogroup’ (=category) by those determining the base sequence.

     The FamilyTreeDNA table on the Lott/Lett family displays Y-DNA datasets from 11 Lotts who descended from Mississippi Lott ancestors—they are all Haplogroup I-M223. There is one Y-DNA dataset from an individual who descends from Abraham G. Lott (1777-1866). Abraham is a grandson of Pieter Lott who immigrated to New Amsterdam from the Netherlands in the 17th century.10 He is Haplogroup J-M172—which unequivocally proves that the Mississippi Lotts do not come from the Netherlands! An English origin of the Virginia Lotts makes a lot of sense, as many of the early 18th century Lotts were Tories and their loyalty to the crown is easier to understand if you realize they have English origins.

     From Virginia the Lotts went south settling in North Carolina (Edgecombe County), where the first generation of our sourced Lott genealogy begins with the first of three John Lotts (the first b. abt 1695). John Lott I, was born in Virginia, but went to Georgia and ended his days as an immigrant to British West Florida11 (created in 1763 and available for colonization after 1772). There is little doubt that John I was a Tory12 considering the timing and location of the initial land grant (200 acres in 1775) and the fact that most of his sons fought and died for the Royalist cause. John’s widow was successful in obtaining a land patent in 1778 for 78 acres on the Tombigbee River, granted to her dau (today in Alabama, north of Mobile).13,14

     Meanwhile his son John Lott II (born 1715/1720) spent most of his life in North Carolina. The genealogists interested in the Lott family are not at all agreed about where this John Lott of Edgecombe County North Carolina is buried…all the bold claims,15 however, are without a body, a marker or a death record. A big source of the confusion is that there are actually TWO adult John Lotts in Edgecombe County in 1750 (probably father and son), this proven by the Edgecombe, North Carolina Deed Book 1, p. 13.16,17 There are also two sons named John Lott born in the early 1740’s to further complicate the picture.

     One of these young John Lotts (b. 1745), probably a son of one of John Lott II’s brothers (George), went to Fairfield County, South Carolina about 1770 with other Lotts. Some say18 John went to South Carolina because Georgia ‘was full of Tories’ (perhaps a reflection of attitudes toward their cousins). In the 1790 U. S. census there are six Lott families in Fairfield County, South Carolina or closeby: George, Sarah, Mark, Joshua, William, and John (b. 1745, md. Elizabeth). In the 1790 census there are no Lotts in Edgecombe County, North Carolina. The Jesse Lott which is the main subject of the Reeves descendency19 is a son of George Lott of Fairfield.

     More to our interest, the other young John Lott, John Lott III (b. 1740, md Sallie Lightfoot), went to Georgia (lots of evidence—mostly land records, not all recounted here), but didn’t die there as many contend, but moved on to be an early settler of Marion County, Mississippi dying there abt 1808 at Washington County, Mississippi.20

     Clearly Generation One of our Lott family were flaming Tories. There are no records of any of the first generation having fought on the American side in the Revolutionary War. Most of Generation Two of the Lotts were already in Mississippi, but some were in Georgia which as already mentioned was a ‘Tory’ state. Georgia sent no representatives to the first Continental Congress in 1774 (they sent one delegate, Lyman Hall, to the second Continental Congress). The Georgians had prospered under Royalist rule and felt they needed the protection of British troops from Indian attack especially the Creeks and Cherokees.21 It is a fact that the Native Americans were pretty much under control after 1760 in all the colonies except Georgia. As the war progressed, the British strategy was to take advantage of strong Royalist support in Georgia (which existed virtually nowhere else except Long Island, New York) and therefore Georgia became a battleground in the years 1778-1780. By 1782, the British were in retreat and the patriots had the upper hand.22 By Generation Three the Lotts had changed sides; John Lott III was a patriot fighting for South Carolina and Georgia militia. Some suggest that it was his son Jesse Lott (23) who proposed the name of Marion County, Mississippi, named for Francis Marion ‘the Swamp Fox’, the most famous southern patriot of the Revolution.

     It was necessary to develop an unusual number of collateral lines to assure the proper identity of all the Jesse’s. Jesse was a very popular name among the Lotts and there are often 3 or 4 Jesse Lott’s simultaneously generating records in one locality. As is always the case, many were misplaced in family trees, misspelled, coupled to the wrong woman, or sharing some other Jesse’s children.

     A key reference for identifying and tying together the later generations of Lotts are the 1910 and 1920 censuses of Beat 1, Marion, Mississippi.23 Here in 1910 Jesse and Emilie Lott are living with their son Wilman Lott (often misread as William Lott) and his wife Elizabeth and their four year old son J(ames) Leston Lott. Many others have placed this four year old incorrectly with other parents and grandparents.

Figure 2. Above are two overlays of Map Group 10 (Township 4-N, 17-W)

On the left are homesteads w/owners (most of the Lotts are in Section 25); on the right side is the highway overlay (two Jesse Lott’s {49 and 56} are neighbors in the 1910 census-probably on the two properties on the right margin of section 25).24

     The descendency from John b. 1695 to James Leston Lott proceeds as follows: John I (1, b. 1695), John II (2, b. 1722), John III (8, b. 1740), Luke (21, b. 1770), Joshua Samuel (29, 1802), Jesse Elisha (49, b. 1844), Wilman (59, 1879), and James Leston (76, b. 1905).

He was a Revolutionary War soldier in South Carolina and served under General Sumter in the South Carolina militia. In 1790 he was in Orangeburg District (south part, became Barnwell County, SC) with a wife and four daughters. He also moved to Mississippi with his brothers.48 It was this Lott who donated the property on Lott’s Bluff to the town; the property was in the current downtown of Columbia, Marion County. As near as the author has been able to discern, Lott’s Bluff is southwest of the center of town toward the (Pearl) River. William moved back to Telfair County, Georgia and was a representative to the Georgia legislature in 1808-9. He had had one son, William b. 1820.

     12.      v.   DANIEL LOTT was born 1744 at Edgecombe County, North Carolina and died 1 Feb 1782 at St. George’s Parish, Burke, Georgia. He married abt 1764 Mildred Wells.49

     13.   vii.   NATHAN GASH LOTT was born 1745. Wife unknown. He was an early settler in Effingham and Bullock Counties of Georgia; he was granted a patent for 100 acres in Effingham County 6 Dec 1790 that became a part of Bullock County. In 1802 he bought 300 acres of land in Montgomery County from his brother Absalom. It is thought that he went abt 1812 to Mississippi with his brothers.50 (3 children: Nathan Jr., b. 1780, md Dicey Watts; Luke, b. abt 1782; and Sarah, b. abt 1792, md John L. Waterhouse).51

     14.  vii.   ABSALOM LOTT was born 1746 at Duplin County, North Carolina and died 1825 at Mississippi. He also was an early settler of Montgomery County, Georgia and moved to Mississippi with his brother Arthur.

Lott family tradition says she was full-blooded Cherokee,63 but this remains unproven. Autosomal DNA analysis should answer the question definitely; Indian heritage is a popular myth among Americans, but is seldom born out. She was born abt 1748 at New Hanover County (which became Duplin County), North Carolina and died 1 Aug 1818 (age 70) at Tattnall County, Georgia.64 John fought in the Revolution in a South Carolina Regiment.65 Apparently, when British troops invaded Burke County, Georgia, John and his family fled to South Carolina where they assisted with supplies and provided military service to the militia.66 His son, John Lott IV, was the first known settler of Marion County, Mississippi in the Creek Indian Nation; his passport, signed by the Governor of Georgia, is dated 6 Dec 1805.67 The Lotts settled at what became known as ‘Lott’s Bluff’, later Columbia, Marion, Mississippi.68 He and his brother William (11) donated69 the land for the beginnings of the town of Columbia, county-seat of Marion County (Marion was one of the original counties at the time of Mississippi statehood in 1817).

Plummer had a dau out-of-wedlock (Myrtis) by Mary B. Daniel in 1907.214 In the 1910 U. S. Census of Rankin County, Mississippi, Plummer is listed alone as a guard at the ‘state farm’215 (there is currently a correctional facility at Brandon, Rankin, MS). Plummer married216 26 Mar 1912 at Smith County, Mississippi (6 mos. before his death) Jessie Robinson217,218 dau of John Leroy and Octavia (Swanson) Robinson of Brandon, Rankin, Mississippi. They had a dau Frances L. Purvis, born 16 Mar 1913 at Mississippi.219 Frances (aka Mary F.)220 married abt 1933 ____ Power (div before 1940, no issue) and died 22 Mar 1964 at Maryland; buried221 at Gate of Heaven Cemetery, Silver Spring, Montgomery, Maryland.

Figure 7. Frances Purvis (aka Mary) abt 1933.222

    Plummer’s parents were Sam ‘Huston’and Sarah (Spradley) Purvis (Sam b. Jan 1851 at Mississippi and d. 18 Dec 1927 at Daniel, Smith, Mississippi; Sarah b. Mar 1851 and d. 3 Jan 1906) both are buried223 in Rock Bluff Cemetery, at Daniel, Smith, Mississippi. Plummer was the seventh of their eight children.224,225 Sarah died in 1906 and Sam married 1907 (2) Catherine ‘Kate’ ____ (b. 18 Feb 1849 and d. 13 Feb 1918, also buried226,227 at Rock Bluff Cemetery at Daniel, Smith, Mississippi).228

    Sam Purvis’ parents were Thomas Jefferson and Emily (Winstead) Purvis229 (Thomas b. 1 Apr 1826 at Mississippi, d. 22 Jun 1863 (at Battle of Vicksburg) Vicksburg, Warren, Mississippi and Emily b. 1829 North Carolina and d. 1870 at Smith County, Mississippi).230,231 Sarah Spradley’s parents were Patrick Henry and Dicey Josephine (Williamson) Spradley232 (Patrick b. 29 Oct 1817 at Simpson County, Mississippi and d. 21 Mar 1892 at Nacogdoches, Nacogdoches, Texas; Dicey b. 1825 at Simpson County, Mississippi and d. 25 Sep 1916 at Nacogdoches County, Texas, both buried233 at Old Union Cemetery, Nacogdoches).234

Figure 8. Louvenia Wallace Daniel abt 1910.235

    Myrtis Jewel Purvis’ mother was Mary B. Daniel236 born 29 Apr 1891 at Beat 4, Smith, Mississippi; other than her presence in the Daniel household in the 1900 and 1910 censuses (notes 214 and 236) no further record of her can be discovered—neither she nor Myrtis could be located in the 1920 U. S. Census (Myrtis was married in 1928). There is an Ancestry tree237 that identifies her as ‘Mary Belle Boykin’ without source;238 Mary Belle Boykin was born 21 Apr 1891 and Mary B. Daniel was b. Apr 1891 (1900 census) so that fits, but a marriage record to a ____ Boykin cannot be discovered. Mary Belle (Daniel) Boykin died 20 Feb 1919 (age 27) and is buried239 in the New Prospect Cemetery, Brandon, Rankin, Mississippi (she must have had a tragic life).

    Mary was the dau of James Asa Daniel and Armadella Louvenia (Wallace) Daniel240,241 (James b. 2 Jul 1859 at Alabama and d. 14 Dec 1904 at Smith County, Mississippi; Louvenia b. 20 Sep 1865 and d. 21 Dec 1956 at Houston, Harris, Texas242) both are buried243 at Puckett Cemetery, Rankin, Mississippi.

    James Asa Daniel’s parents were Jesse and Elvira (Jordan) Daniel244,245 (Jesse b. 3 Jul 1792 at Gadsden County, Florida and d. after 1860 at Taylor County, Georgia; Elvira b. Georgia). Louvenia Wallace’s parents were Wesley Asberry and Mary Enda (Burnham) Wallace (‘Welsley’ b. 1840 at Alabama and d. 19 Apr 1890 Pucket County, Mississippi; Mary Enda b. Warren County, Alabama and d. 12 Feb 1906 Rankin County, Mississippi).

15. Lott, W. N. ‘The Lotts Before the Revolution’ (1974), an essay distributed to attendees of the annual Lott Reunion at Macedonia Church, Hall County, Georgia. The essay traces (without references) the Lotts from John Lott, Sr. in Edgecombe County, North Carolina to two of his sons John Jr. (who went to Georgia) and Jesse (who went to Fairfield District, South Carolina). He also talks about the gradual drift of the family from the Carolinas to Georgia and later to Alabama and Mississippi. The author is a descendant of Jesse and states that the link to John Lott, Sr. remains unproven as of that date (1974). He also stated that John Lott, Sr. moved to Fairfield District (County), South Carolina (this is incorrect). This essay was forwarded to Trent Lott, representative of the 5th District of Mississippi in the House of Representatives, whose comment was ‘this jibes with what my grandfather told me.’ He claims without reference that the Lotts came from New York City and were driven out by the British, essay reproduced in A Lott of Cousins, pp. 204-5. Unfortunately, although there is hardly one sentence free from error in the whole talk, the essay is widely cited and believed because it is in print.

There are no supporting sources for a first marriage. Since we have an 1824 marriage date to Roseann, we have to consider the children by Catherine to be illegitimate (the children were apparently not raised in Joshua’s household). Most published trees acknowledge that the children probably came from two different mothers (otherwise, why were there only two children in Joshua’s 1830 census household?).

103. The ‘first wife’ was described in many trees as Catherine (Kathie) Lott (no sources), a cousin; she is also suggested to be a Catherine Wiggins, dau of William Jesse and Barbara (Watts) Wiggins, also born in Georgia. Joshua and Catherine’s son George appears in the 1880 census vide infra—it states there that George’s parents were both born in Georgia. The author has queried the authors of relevant Ancestry trees, but has not had any responses. There is nothing useful to the problem in the 1820 or 1830 U. S. census.
