My gg grandfather is Hilliard J. Lott (b. 1815 Fairfield Co, SC;d. 1882, Hall Co, GA; m. Sarah Emeline Thompson) Hilliard is the son of Jesse Lott (b. 1771, Fairfield Co, SC;d. 1854 Hall Co, GA;m. Nancy Martin)
Now, going back to my 3rd great grandfather has been puzzling. I have found info that says George Lott (b. 1750;d. 1812, Hall Co., GA) is Jesse's father, and I have found info that contradicts this. I also do not have the wife of George.
Concerning my 4th great grandfather:I have found info that says George is the son of John Lott (b. 1720; d. 1810; m. to Elizabeth Joyner). I have also found John and Elizabeth's children with no mention of George.
With all of the research that I have done, I have concluded that there is a lot of confusion about what Lott lines belong to whom, and a lot of Lott researchers seem to be forcing lines together.
If anyone has documented information that could help me figure out who Jesse's parents and grandparents, etc. are, I would be totally appreciative. Please feel free to contact me privately, and if I can be of any help to anyone, I will be more than happy to do so.
