A BRIEF GEORGIA LOTT FAMILY HISTORY
My earliest known Lott ancestors where English subjects. Either John Lott (which I have dubed "The Immigrant") and/or his son William Lott where our earliest known immigrants to the American Colonies, which then were of English procession. My biological maternal 5th great grandparents were John Lott (1742-1810) and Sarah "Sallie" Lightfoot and these are my earliest known Georgia Lott's. They lived in present day Tattnall County, Georgia. This same John Lott fought for our independence from the British during the Revolutionary War. After the War, the government was giving out land in Georgia to Revolutionary Soldier's, so, he and family immigrated here from North Carolina. Many of these Lott's relatives further immigrated to new territory of Mississippi.

The folks listed below are mostly my own direct ancestors. For all the Lott of Georgia in my database, please see my Worldconnect at Rootsweb Site: ID "Irisheyes".

A stranger calling himself Newton, arrived some three weeks ago, at the residence of Mr.Robert Lott/Loft, an aged gentleman,living on Black Creek, in the above named county. Newton had business with Mr.L., after which he said Mr.L. had left to attend a law suit. Newton also stated that he had been hired to attend to Mr.L's business until he returned. Newton suddenly departed, arousing the suspicions of the people, causing the citizens to begin a search for a body, which was found 3 days later in Black Creek, mutilated."

Mark Lott was born in St. George's Parish, Georgia, about 1765, a son of John Lott, R.S. He grew up in Effingham County and in Barnwell District, S. C., and married Delilah_____ (maiden name cannot be ascertained).

Record is found where Mark Lott granted 100 acres in Effingham County, Dec.6, 1790; this land was sold by him to James Oglesby Nov. 27, 1802 for $150.00. The deed to Oglesby is signed by Mark Lott and his wife Delilah and is recorded in Bulloch County deed book "A" page 88; the property had been cut off into Bulloch out of Effingham, and identifies the land as the same that had been granted to him in 1790.

Mark and Delilah Lott had eight children.

The family lived in that part of Bulloch county which was cut off into Emanuel County in 1812; and moved in 1806 to Montgomery County, and was cut off into Tattnall County in the formation of that county in 1805. Mark Lott died in Momtgomery County about 1812, and his widow continued to live there (shown in 1820 Census of Montgomery County) until about 1822 when she with her children moved across the Ocmulgee River into Appling County, and settled where Lone Hill Methodist Church now is in Coffee County. The son Daniel Lott, had already moved there, She lived there until her death sometime about 1845 at an advanced age.

The descendamts of Mark and Delilah Lott form one of the largest family connections of Wirgrass Georgia; discendants of the Daniel Lott family being the most numerous.

ROBERTS, GRAY STOCK     1793-1862      Atkinson County, GA
GRAY STOCK ROBERTS was born November 25, 1793 in Burke County, Georgia, and was a son of ROBERT ROBERTS, R. S. He grew up in Montgomery County and was married there January 14, 1816 to SARAH "Sallie" LOTT, a daughter of Mark and Delilah Jones Lott. She was born September 22, 1797 in Bulloch County (GA) and died in Coffee County, now part of Atkinson County, Georgia on June 18, 1878. To Gray Stock Roberts and Sallie Lott Roberts were born 9 children.

About 1822, GRAY S. ROBERTS and family moved from Montgomery County, GA to what was then Ware County but now is Atkinson County, locating on Lot of Land No 66, 6th District of originally Appling County. This Lot was cut into Clinch County in 1850; and out of Clinch County into Coffee County in 1854; and out of Coffee County into Atkinson County in 1919. A few years later Mr. Roberts moved and settled the old ELISHA LOTT farm and still later, bought Lot 23, 6th District, and moved there and he died there on December 23, 1862. Both he and his wife are buried at Antioch Baptist Church near Kirkland, Atkinson County, Georgia.

Mr. Roberts and his wife were members of the Methodist Church, as were also their children. Their membership was at the old Roberts Church now known as Antioch Baptist Church referred to above. The church was originally a Methodist but for many years now has been a Baptist Church.
