Frances Isabel Roberts Lott was raised around the Tallahassee, Florida area. Alice (Lott) Quinley always said her grandmother's heritage consisted of Seminole Indian, French and Spanish. Chancey Lott (Frances Isabel's great-grandson) said that her family, the Roberts, would steal other peoples' slaves then sell them for money. The Roberts family migrated to Texas, but Frances Isabel did not go with them. Somehow she made it to Dewitt County, Michigan where she is living in 1850. There she was living with Francis R. and Catherine Reed. Chancy Lott said Frances Isabel later moved in with Benjamin Lott and his family. She would later marry Benjamin's nephew John Lott Sr.
It has been speculated that Frances Isabel was sent or taken to Michigan by her family to avoid becoming a displaced person due to the Federal government imposing displacement of native Americans from the regions of Georgia and the Carolinas. This action resulted in the Cherokee Trail of Tears.
Family tradition is that after the death of John Lott Sr's first wife Louisa Konkle Lott, Frances Isabel moved in the household to help care for John and Louisa's children Helen, Rance and Frances. John Lott Sr soon married Frances Isabel Roberts thereafter.
Frances Isabel Roberts Lott died giving birth to her last child, Perle Edgar Lott. Family Traditions says that she went into labor in a cave or "dug-out" in nearby Washington County, Kansas, under the home of her stepson Rance Lott built. After her death Rance and wife first wife Harriett Luton Lott took in Perle Edgar Lott and raised him.
