Sure...Here is a PART of what the book says where the name came from. It is from a book that was written by P. V. Loutzenheiser and read at the annual reunion on August 17th, 1893. It says as follows...

"This important event, the origin of the name, occurred some time after David became king of Israel, and came about by the marriage of a Moabite named Jacob, one of the sons or descendants of Lot, to the daughter of a man named High-Sir, which was probably more of a title than a name. It appears that this Jacob--we do not know how many degrees he may have been removed yet being a descendant of Lot--was called Lot's Son. He was no doubt quite a noted character; at least, if the account be true, he was a great traveler. He fell in love, as all sensible men do sooner or later, and, very fortunately for us, with a most charming young lady, the only child of a great chief or governor, who agreed to the marriage, provided his name should be given to any grandchildren that might result from the marriage. And so it was agreed to blend the names, and call them Lot's-Son-High-Sir, and this double name has no doubt in course of time been changed and blended into our commonplace and well known Loutzenhiser. "

That is just one paragraph out of about 20 pages. If you need to know more...let me know!
