The goal of this project is to connect members of the Ott Family in America. My Ott family is mainly from a small town named Branchville in Orangeburg County, South Carolina, though my grandmother, Carrie Lucile Ott, left there and eventually settled in Charlotte, North Carolina. There are still many Otts connected to my tree living there, and there is a large cemetery for Branchville with many Otts.
Right now this project just has one member, me. I am Lisa Rudisill. My father was James Paul Rudisill of Lincolnton, NC and my mother was Dorothy Dukes Rudisill, born in Branchville, SC.
Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.
- Trying to link various Ott family members from various locales.
- Trying to link the American Otts with those of Germany/Switzerland/Czechoslovakia. Some were famous violin makers back to its origination there.
- Just getting to know others through this family tree.
If you have a specific question for me, my email is email@example.com.
