Norman Albert Mott, (April 4, 1855 – 1920), was a member of the Mississippi Legislature in 1911.[3]

Early life[edit]

Mott was born in Alburgh, Vermont to Nichols and Amanda (Chilton) Mott.[1] Mr. Mott and his 2 brothers were orphaned at a young age. His father died in 1856 and his mother in 1863. He was raised by his grandmother Phoebe Deuel Chilton in Vermont until he moved south due to health reasons.

While a member of the Mississippi Legislature, Mott served as Chairman of the Investigation of State Officers committee and was a member of the Ways and Means, Municipalities, and Liquor Traffic committees. He was also a publisher of the Yazoo Herald, a newspaper in Yazoo City, Mississippi and the Belzoni Item. The Yazoo Herald remained in the Mott family from 1914 until 1978. He served as president of the Farmers' Union in Mississippi[2] and belonged to the fraternal organization Woodmen of the World.[3]
