Tombstone Tuesday-Cornelius Lott 1738-1816

Captain Cornelius Lott

In my research this Cornelius Lott is identified by his rank as there were a plethora (16 by my count) of Cornelius Lotts. 

This can be seen by the inscription on the Lott cenotaph in Gettysburg, PA.

Captain Cornelius is buried in Millstone, New Jersey (previously known as Somerset Courthouse). 

Captain Cornelius Lott worshipped as Dutch Reformed as did most of the Lotts and associated families.

Inscription on the Gettysburg Cenotaph:
