JOHNSON, OTT, OTTS
posted by Joyce R. Bradley on
Thursday, May 1, 1997
- OTT - I am researching the
OTT family of Dale and Clarke counties, Alabama. A descendant of
my OTTS - Richard OTT b. 1805, SC, and his wife Ann (?) were
listed on the 1860 Lauderdale Co., MS. censu record. Children
listed on the census in this household were William, Martha,
Mary, and Daniel OTT. Daniel, the youngest child, was listed as
age 3 and born in MS. So, Richard and Ann OTT must have left
Dale Co., AL., before 1857. By the 1870 Lauderdale Co., MS
census, Ann was listed as the wife of Andrew JOHNSON. I would
like to correspond with anyone who has information on this
family. I am willing to share my information. May 1, 1997.
