Help with Mott Family research?

+3 votes
I tend to immerse myself in research, but will be going back to work full time beginning tomorrow and am hoping someone can take over this research. I was caught up when I took over a couple of abandoned profiles a month or two ago, the profiles having the incredibly unique names of Loami and Orange and I did not think I would be attempting to untangle this line for this length of time.

I believe those profiles are descendants of:

Adam Mott Sr:


Adam Mott Jr.:

My working theory is that [[Mott-1589|Orange Mott]]  son of Adam Mott, Jr. disappears from census records for the early 1800's and an Orange Mott of the correct age appears in Ohio/Indiana census records 1820/1830/, then reappears in Susquehannah County PA with a son where he lives out his life.

Possible son of Orange: Loammia Orange Mott (b. 1823):

Possible grandson of Orange: Loammie Orange Mott (Original profile I took over):

After some of this research, I discovered that there is a line already that has been connected out of Virginia not Connecticut. Both theories are very thin and may both connect back to the same Adam Sr/Jr from Connecticut/Rhode Island.

Thank you for any help,


PS... I'm thinking that researching the children of Adam Mott Sr & Jr and their movements may be the best way to untangle this "Loami" and "Orange" web!

Be careful with edits. This ADAM MOTT is part of the US PRESIDENTS project. Ancestor of Harry S. Truman.

I have in my possession book with a Genealogical Chart that ends at President Harry Shipp Truman.  If you want, I can scan and send it to you.  The Book is:

When I first started working Harry Truman's family, I came across the multiple "Orange" Motts, let me look through my notes.   I only remember because of the unusual name.
