Needing to confirm that Joseph Mott's grandson Platt (mentioned in his will of 1816) is the same as my step-great grandfather.

The will states that Joseph (wife Anny) had a son Joseph and he had a son, Platt. Platt was left "my new clock and clock case."  'My' Platt  b. 20 Feb 1806  NY, m. Rebecca Moore Brown 1848 Rock Island Co., IL, d. 11 Feb 1902 Logan, Harrison, IA

Thanks so much for any information!

Based on what you sent me, I still did not find something to prove Platt Mott is the son of Joseph Mott. Joseph was the son of the Joseph Mott who had the 1816 will. 

I don't have access to Ancestry myself, but they might be a good resource if you have access. 

Another possiblity would be a free site, http://genforum.genealogy.com/mott/

 

thanks again! I've been looking, albeit off and on, for over 10 years to find Platt's ancestry and check in with ancestry and genforum from time to time. It was just a month or so ago that I finally found the will for Platt's possible grandfather. Today, I thought I'd look again and through a google search found WikiTree.

The one family I've not tracked down in any depth is a Joseph Mott family living in Delavan, Walworth, WI in 1870 who come from NY. He's 70 and they live 2 houses away from a Nichols family, which is also allied with my direct lines. Delavan isn't too far from Rock Island, IL ....

The hunt continues :) Again, thanks so much!

Beth
