Hello,

Re: 1700's VA>NC>GA
.......3 LOTT families married into COPELAND, GRAVES, LIGHTFOOT/JOYNER,
.......LIGHTFOOT/COOK/CLARK(E,) and HERRINGTON and
.......DICKENS/DICKINS, aka DICKSON/DICKERSON families that connect with the
.......HERRINGTON/HARRINGTON, GRANTHAM, STUCKEY, MYRICK,
.......PIERCE and HATTEN/HATTON, BARLOW, etc. families

I am curious about the following individuals especially regarding the wife of
William W. GRAVES whom I find only as Nancy ? but noticed that she had a son
name Lott GRAVES and wondering if she is a LOTT? they were the parents of
Catherine GRAVES, born: abt. 1800 in Georgia, who married a man named
DICKENS/DICKINS, possibly named David? DICKENS/DICKINS, parents of my
paternal 2nd great grandmother: Jane/Rebecca Jane DICKENS/DICKINS, born:
1828 in MS, probably Covington Co., MS, who married my 2nd great grandfather,
Isham Daniel HERRINGTON, aka Isom Daniel HARRINGTON, born: December 1828 in
Covington Co., MS, parents of Harriet Katherine "Hattie" HERRINGTON, aka
HARRINGTON, born: 1868 in MS, who married Calvin Pierce "Callie" MYRICK.

Children of Nancy ? and William W. GRAVES:

(1.) Catherine GRAVES
.............born: 1800 in Georgia, (per 1850 Covington Co., MS census)
(2.) Humphrey GRAVES
.............born: abt. 1795
.............md: Sarah COOK
.........................md; 15 Aug. 1815
(3.) Lott GRAVES
.............born: abt. 1797
(4.) John GRAVES
.............born: March 13, 1800
.............md: Marian ?, (last name may start with an F)
.........................md: February 23, 1819
(5.) Middleton GRAVES
.............born: 1802
.............md: Matilda HERRINGTON

This GRAVES descent, new to me, is through my paternal lineage and I have
another paternal LOTT line that I am trying to find information on which is
with Aaron LOTT's daughter, Nancy LOTT, who married Nicholas COPELAND,
ancestors Ripley COPELAND, (RS,) born: abt. 1761 in Chatham Co., NC, and I
also have LOTT in my maternal lineage as well as Mary COPELAND, born:
abt./aft. 1775?, who married James GRAVES, born: 1730 in Culpeper Co., VA,
died: bet. 23 May - Nov 10, 1796 in Lincoln Co. (previously Wilkes Co.), GA,
parents of the aforementioned William W. GRAVES.

Mary COPELAND and James GRAVES were the parents of William W. GRAVES, born:
abt. 1770 in Georgia and I have another LOTT line in my maternal lineage with
my maternal 3rd great grandmother, Frances Lucretia "Patsy" LOTT, born: abt.
1802 in Alabama, daughter of my 4th great grandparents, Absalom LOTT, born:
abt. 1758, (son/grandson of Elizabeth JOYNER and John LOTT,) who married
Martha Jane Dorsey? LIGHTFOOT.

Shown with a little more info below, I am most eager to find out if William
W. GRAVES wife, Nancy ?, mother of Lott GRAVES, was herself a LOTT and to
find out who the wife and father of the Aaron LOTT, (father of the Nancy LOTT
that married Nicholas COPELAND,) mentioned was and, in addition, I am very
curious about the Sarah COOK who in abt. 1815 married on August 15, 1815 in
Georgia possibly and whom her parents are.

Does anyone know whether this Sarah COOK is descended from Henry/Heinrich
COOK/KOCH who married in abt. 1781 to Margaret Susannah LIGHTFOOT, born:
abt. 1765 in Antigua probably, (father: Philip LIGHTFOOT,) born: abt. 1765,
possibly in Antigua/may be Virginia or ?, who married in abt. 1799/81 to
Absalom LOTT, born: abt. 1758, (son/grandson of Elizabeth JOYNER and John
LOTT.)

The aforementioned Mrs. Margaret Susannah LIGHTFOOT COOK/KOCH had one
daughter named Elizabeth COOK. I don't know if she had a daughter named
Sarah COOK or not but the timeframe for the Sarah COOK below who married in
August 15, 1815 would suggest possibilities that she could be a daughter of
Margaret Susannah LIGHTFOOT COOK/KOCH but nothing to 'nail it' yet and after
the death of Henry COOK, Mrs. Margaret Susannah LIGHTOOT COOK/KOCH CLARK(E)
Margaret married 2nd husband: Henry CLARK(E.) My Martha Jane Dorsey?
LIGHTFOOT and Absalom LOTT also had a daughter named Elizabeth LOTT in
addition to Frances Lucretia LOTT, And Margaret Susannah LIGHTFOOT and 2nd
husband, Henry CLARK(E,) had a daughter named Elizabeth CLARK(E.) And
Margaret Susannah LIGHTFOOT COOK/KOCH CLARK(E) and husband, Henry CLARK(E,)
had a daughter named Martha/Martha Jane? CLARK(E) who married Curtis Grubb(s)
BEASON/BEESON who lived in Alabama in the 1840's.

And the aforementioned Sarah COOK married on August 15, 1815 to Humphrey
GRAVES, brother of Catherine GRAVES, born: 1800/abt. 1800 in Georgia,
(daughter of William W. GRAVES, (son of James GRAVES and Mary COPELAND.

In addition, Middleton GRAVES, (shown below,) born: abt. 1802 married
Matilda HERRINGTON whom I believe is descended from my HERRINGTON lineage but
can't find her branch.

Also shown below is:

<< In info abt. James GRAVES:
Private from Georgia in the Revolutionary War
fought under Gen. Elijah CLARKE at the battle of
Kettle Creek in GA.>>

See the following in a little more detail below.
