Is anyone here still researching Motts?
I am still trying to find the parents of Thomas Jefferson Mott, b. October 12, 1837 in Moore's Creek, Hew Hanover Co., NC, d. March 16, 1917 in Jacksonville, FL.
His father was Moses Mott. The only info I have on him is that he died in Wilmington.
This family is not the Pender County Motes.
T.J. Mott married Charlotte Euterpia Roker of Nassau, New Providence (now Bahamas), and had a shipping business at one time with a John Titus in North Carolina. He may have been either a blockade runner or a Privateer during the Civil War. In 1870 he was a house painter(!) in Jacksonville, FL. Interestingly enough, one of his grandsons, Louis Chalmas Mott, was a rum runner during prohibition!
I can find no evidence of T.J. Mott or Moses Mott on any census in Hanover County. Any assistance will be most appreciated!
