Notes for J
OHN LOTT , JR.:
John Lott, Jr. was born circa 1720 VA (This John is assumed to be fhe father of the John born 1742, therefore, must have been born by this time. The birth place is assumed reflecting what is thought to be his father's where-abouts prior to appearing in NC in the mid-1730s). He married Bethany Unknown after Nov 1764 (This woman was named as the wife of John Lott "Sr" (John#2) in the 1795 deeds from Screven Co., GA. Some researchers have also suggested that she was also the wife Elizabeth of John Lott "the elder" (John#1) of the Edgecombe Co. She has long been thought the only wife of John, Jr. and mother of his children. However, John, Jr. had no wife listed in the grants that he received in 1764 in St. George's Parish. No household member would have been omitted in these declarations since it determined the amount of land received and for this reason Bethany must have been a 2nd wife); died after 1795 GA.

He received a land grant on 6 Nov 1764 Buckhead Creek, St. George's Par., GA, said he had been in Province some yrs and has 7 children [no wife mentioned]. He received 200 ac of swamp adj son John Lott (Warren and Jones, Geo Gov & Council Jour, p 86.).

He received a land grant on 22 Jan 1778 British West Florida said John Lott, Jr., 300 acres on the west side of Tombecky River about 105 miles above Mobile (Petersen, "W. Florida Land Petitions", p 145.). He lived in Mar 1780 Spanish West Florida (said on list of English inhabitants at Tombecbie [now Tombigbee]) (Winston DeVille, "Anglos and Anglo-Americans in Early Alabama," National Genealogical Society Quarterly 70 (Dec 1982). Hereinafter cited as "Anglos in Early Alabama".). He emigrated between Mar 1780 and Jul 1780 from Spanish West Florida (said John Lott, former landowner, abandoned in 1780 [assumed to be shortly after Spanish takeover]) (Anonymous, "Transcripts of the Mobile Land Records," Deep South Genealogical Quarterly 24 #4: p. 187. Hereinafter cited as "Mobile Land Recs".). He witnessed the deed of Arthur A. Moore before Jul 1780 Spanish West Florida (said Arthur Moore sold the property surveyed for John Lott) (Walter Lowrie (editor), Early Settlers of Mississippi as Taken from Land Claims in the Mississippi Territory. (Easley, S.C.: Southern Historical Press, 1986), p 663. Hereinafter cited as Early Settlers of Miss.). He lived in Jul 1783 Burke Co., GA (was appointed road comm. for Burke Co. (Lott Fam.
