Notes for J
OHN LOTT III:
John Lott was born circa 1740 Edgecombe Co., NC (said born 1742, but this seemed to have been computed from the 1810 death date she claimed and the "died at age 68" notation. Her stated place of birth was also faulty as she said Duplin Co., NC, which was not created at that time. John actually died in 1808 according to Washington Coounty, Mississippi Territory records and assuming the age at death is probably correct the 1740 date of birth seems more likely) (Lineage application of Francis Smith Blitch, Nat. no. 463830, Daughters of the American Revolution, John Lott.); married Sallie (--?--) circa 1760 NC (Ibid., said he married Sallie abt 1762 but no reference was given.); died (said died Jul 1810 in Tattnall County, Georgia [but thought to be incorrect]. She made no clear reference for this, but it may have been the Mark Lott Bible. There was also a hand written note in the death section saying "[died] at about 68 years" which seems to be the source of the 1742 birth date) (Lott, Blitch, Nat. no. 463830, Daughters of the American Revolution.); his estate was probated 8 Oct 1808 Washington Co., MS Terr (said John Lott, Sr. will signed 14 Apr 1808, probated 8 Oct 1808, no wife listed, heirs: Elizabeth, Robert, Jesse, Luke, John.

ARAH ANN UNKNOWN:
      Sarah Ann (--?--) (there is no credible evidence of her surname) was born circa 1765 (she must have been born by this date if she was the mother of the children attributed to Arthur Lott, but the only census listing for her showed her born before 1775). She married John Warren (RS), son of John Warren and Mary Whilden, on 28 Jun 1816 Marion Co., MS (Marriages Marion Co., MS 1812-1824. p 121). She died circa 1829 (probably in Marion Co., MS, but no evidence has been found of her death. She is not shown in any Marion Co. records after 1823. The deed to the slave she received from the Warren estate was not recorded until 1829 and this may have been necessary after her death. She was not found on the 1830 census either as a head of household or as a woman in right age group in the household of a relative). She witnessed the deed of Arthur Lott on 15 Apr 1807 Tattnall Co., GA, as wife who relinquished her dowery (said Arthur Lott to Jacob Lin Jr. one half of a tract containing 1,000 acres granted to Lott on Nov 16, 1802 in Tattnall Co) (McElligott (editor), "Tattnall Co. Deeds", p 141.). She witnessed the will of John Warren (RS) on 20 Nov 1819 Marion Co., MS (said John Warren, Sr., named wife Sarah, dau Jincy, son John (Jack), Samuel's heirs, dau Martha, son Daniel, gsons Liberty & Elias, gdau Eliza Ball) (E. Russ, Jr. Williams, Orphan Court Records [Marion Co., MS] (Abstracts of Wills and Estates) 1812 - 1859 (Bogalusa, La: no publisher, 1962), p 12. Hereinafter cited as Orphan Court Recs Marion Co., MS.). She appeared on the census of 1820 Marion Co., MS (John Warren, 1m >45, 1f <10, 1f >45 (born b1775)). She witnessed the probate of the estate of John Warren (RS) on 31 Dec 1823 Marion Co., MS (said John Warren Jr. & Daniel R. Warren, executors, deliver a negro to Sarah Warren, her portion of the estate Recorded 22 Jan 1829) (Williams, Orphan Court Recs Marion Co., MS, p 24.). As of 1901, she was identified as Sarah Ann Clapp gave surname as Clapp, but shown as unknown in another part of letter (Letter from W.A. Jones (Washington, D.C.) to Department of the Interior Office of Indian Affairs, 2 Dec 1902; transcription in possession of John C. Barron (820 Dobbins Road, Corsicana, Navarro Co., TX 75110).). As of 1902, she was identified as Sarah Ann Lott said she was the daughter of a Mr. Lott and a full blood Choctaw woman. [This confusing testimony is highly suspect, however, since the affaint was not old enough to have first hand knowledge of these events, the Choctaw were strictly a Mississippi tribe, and the Lotts were in Georgia in the 1760s.] (Johnson, "Affidavit of Henry Johnson".). As of 20 Dec 1980, she was identified as Sarah Watkins said it is most likely that she was [a Watkins] since a number of her grandchildren had "Watkins" as a part of their name (Letter from Carroll E. Watts (Columbia, MS) to John C. Barron, 20 Dec 1980; in possession of John C. Barron (820 Dobbins Road, Corsicana, Navarro Co., TX 75110).).
