Civil War Data (CWD) also lists a William Lott, Jr in Company G, 7th MS batt.

The question is:

. . . . is the William Lott (#267) buried in section #39, 7th MS battllion related to William Lott, Jr., in the CWD file?

If so, Lott #267 could likely be the father who died, serving with his son.

There is also a William Lott (#267) in section 41 of MS buried at McGavock listed as a member of there 15th MS. This is possibly the CWD William Lot with a Company E, 15th MS.
