Lottie was a daughter of Joseph Morton and Mary Ann (Ayers) McKim. She married Joseph Richmond Cason about 1877. In the 1900 Census she said she was the mother of 7 children, 6 of them living. Those six were: Mary Pearl; Murray; George Langdon; Willie; Dudley; and Rhey, who were all still living at home.
The 1900 Census listed her occupation as "Dressmaker", although at that time women were rarely given credit for any kind of career.
