Two Mississippi Lott boys buried at McGavock . . . related?

The 7th MS battalion served with French’s Division, Sears’ Brigade alongside the 4th, 35th, 39th and 46th Mississippi regiments.

McGavock has a soldier named Pvt. William Lott (#267) as buried in section #39 MS. He served in the 7th MS battalion with Company B.

Also buried at McGavock is . . .

Pvt. William M. Lott, (age 16 or 19 at death), Co. E. 15th Mississippi Regiment buried in Ms. Section 41, Grave 300, of the McGavock CSA Cemetery.

Were Lott #267 and Lott #300 related?

Tim Burgess says, “I do believe they were “distantly related” as were all of the Lott family in Carroll and North Mississippi having been descended from Aaron Lott of South Carolina. But I do not believe they were Father and Son.”

William M. Lott (#300) of the 15th was the son of Toliver Lott, Co. K. 30th Mississippi and brother of (Andrew) Jackson Lott of the same regiment.

Other “William Lott” men serving for Mississippi according to CWD include:

  • William Lott, 17th MS P. Rangers Cavalry [Not in existence in 1864]
  • William Lott, 42nd MS Infantry [ANV in Nov 1864]
  • William Lott, 28th MS Cavalry [Forrest’s Cavalry, Army of Tennessee]
  • William A. Lott, 27th MS Infantry, Company F [Cheatham’s Division, Wathal’s Brigade, AOT at the time]
  • William A. Lott, Corporal, 24th MS Infantry, Co G [the 24th did fight at Franklin; Brantley’s brigade, Johnson’s div]
  • William J. Lott, 2nd Lt, was in the 27th MS Infantry, Co F [the 27th fought at Franklin; Brantley’s brigade, Johnson’s div]
  • William R. Lott, Pvt, was in the 27th MS Infantry, Co G [the 27th fought at Franklin; Brantley’s brigade, Johnson’s div]

  1. Sir: Pursuant to my research (of over 20 years) on the Confederate Soldiers killed or mortally wounded at Franklin I offer the following:

    Pvt. Wm Lott, Co. B. 7th Mississippi Battalion killed at Franklin and buried in Ms. Section 39, Grave 267 of the McGavock CSA Cemetery.

    Pvt. William M. Lott, (age 16 or 19 at death), Co. E. 15th Mississippi Regiment buried in Ms. Section 41, Grave 300, of the McGavock CSA Cemetery.

    I do believe they were “distantly related” as were all of the Lott family in Carroll and North Mississippi having been descended from Aaron Lott of South Carolina. But I do not believe they were Father and Son.

    William M. Lott of the 15th was the son of Toliver Lott, Co. K. 30th Mississippi and brother of (Andrew)Jackson Lott of the same regiment.

    I will be forwarding follow up information regarding your posting regarding “brothers” killed at Franklin. There were quite a few of them from the various states and I have some photo available if wished.

    Additional information regarding my long time research and planned publication of a “Battle of Franklin Death Roster” is available is wanted.

    Thank You.
