"Reports from that this family "John B. SURRATT" and 1st Wife Unknown came to Arkansas, by way of Covered wagon and through Alabama from Spartanburg Co., SC., 1st Son Samuel died." as per family tradition. 1st Wife died, abt 1857, age 30 in AL.
John B. married a second time, to Catherine M. Castleberry (1838-C1910) John B. died in the Civil War with the 10th Ark., Regt. (Confederate) 1862, age 35. I think he was a son of Obediah SURRATT of Buncombe Co., NC.

Paul, I am a geneologist and a Surratt by marriage......... The Surratt/Sarratt book that I own came from the Library in the Surratt Tavern in Clinton, Maryland...... In that book they explain that it has not been proven that Joseph came from France....It is a very good guess..... Is there proof that I haven't heard about??? It is very hard to prove a coat-of-arms..... very few families actually had authentic ones......Is your proven? Thanks Franki Hastings Surratt

Hi.............It's been a long time, and we just moved to Madison Wisconsin, so my life is a little chaotic..........
I have been taught as a genealogist that a claim on a coat-of-arms can not be made until positive proof links you to that coat-of-arms.............
My family is Irish and although I have found the coat-of-arms for Brogan, I can not use it until I show the lineage proof to the exact Brogans that held that coat-of-arms.......... There were rich Brogans and there were poor ones........ Different families............. It is very valued and honorable to have a true coat-of-arms......... Most people do not understand that.,,,,,,,,,,, I will meet Sarratts who tell me very proudly that that is their coat-of-arms.... and they will believe it because you told them so.............. IT IS NOT CORRECT!!!!!!!!!!!!
Why don't you help us find the link to France....... I think we may also be linked to Seurat, the painter........ I hope to go to France soon and do my own research......... wish me luck........
Franki Hastings Surratt,

Thanks for the E-Mail. You act like we have never talked before, remeber me?
You didn't say what "The Surratt/Sarratt book that I own came from the Library in the Surratt Tavern in Clinton, Maryland." But, its probably Norman & Laura Sarratt,s book of 1980? and I am very familiar with it. [SFA-REF:#90]
"In the absence of absolute proof, circumstantial evidence, both legally and genealogically, has been allowed in the following conclusions (i.e Joseph Sarratt of France; Sarratt Coat of Arms) and I will conceded that when any other proof of the opposite is provided, which is logical and reasonable and not opposed by any other evidence." Do you have any "Proof to the opposite?" ..prs See: Coat-of Arms

Hi. Very interesting information. I don't have a lot of information about my family tree, but I'll tell you what I know (I might ask my grandmother to fill back a little bit). I also don't really know the right way to present the information, but here it goes:
Cecil Surratt was my grandfather.
He had at least 2 other siblings (sisters I believe). He was born in rural AR. In his youth he was struck with polio and was crippled the rest of his life. He worked in Washington, DC for a while and then worked for the Cotton Belt Railroad. He died in early 1969, right before my 2nd birthday. He was married to Delphia Lovelace (still living and living outside of Texarkana, (Bowe Co.) TX). With the railroad they moved around AR and TX a lot. They had 3 children:
Cecil Roderick (Born: 1943-4? - still alive),
Larry Gene (Born: 4/17/46 - Still living),
Peggy Lynn (Born: 1950??).
Cecil Roderick (who wisely goes by Rod), married Mary Shipp in Texarkana and lived in Dallas for a while. They had a son, Michael Scott Surratt (Born: 8/6/69) and moved to Syracuse NY.
Michael Scott just recently (this spring) married Stephenie ??? (You'd think I'd remember since I was at their wedding) and currently live in State College, PA. Rod and Mary are divorced.
Larry Gene (my father) met Jana Lee Sherbenou (Born: 4/3/47) in High School in Texarkana, TX. They both went to Baylor University in Waco TX. They had one child,
a son Robert Michael Surratt (Born: 7/3/67) (me).
We lived in Little Rock, AR for a short time, in Cincinnati, OH from 1970-1976, in Philadelphia, PA from then through 1992. Jan and Larry know live in Redondo Beach, CA (near Los Angeles). I graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY in 1989 and moved to the Boston, MA metro area where I have lived since then. In 1991 I married my college girlfriend, Elizabeth Leigh Hopeman (Born: 6/4/71) from Waynesboro, VA. We currently have a house in Arlington, MA. No kids yet, just a dog, Tigger.
There have always been rumors that our branch is closely related to (See: John and Mary Surratt of Surrattsville MD fame (Lincoln assination), but those are not substanciated at all. There has even been some thought that Cecil's Father (maybe George or that might be the other side of the family) [Cecil's father is the Rev. O.E. SURRATT] didn't like Lincoln and liked to CLAIM that he wasrelated.
I was surprised the first time I looked up Surratt in some of the Internet white pages to find so many names. I have never lived in a place where I was not the only SURRATT. (He in Boston there are a LOT of Surrette -- but from your message I would guess that this is not yet another alternate spelling).
If you don't already have my branch, let me know and I'll make a point of filling out the information from my grandmother.
Robert M. Surratt,

Subj: Re: Cecil Surratt, Faulkner Co., AR
Hello again. Thanks for the info. I forwarded it to my Dad for information and corrections. He reply follows below and should be treated as more authoritative than anything I might had said.
"Rob: The information is basically correct. Here're some additions and corrections.
Cecil Roderick was born Oct. 18, 1943
Peggy Lynn was born Feb. 19, 1949.
Michael was married in October of 1995.
My dad, [FG 2247]
Cecil (no middle name or initial) was born Oct. 24, 1911, not in 1912 as his stuff says. Also, later on he gets it right, but in the first reference he has all dad's brothers and sisters from the same mother. Ethan and Carl were sons of Amanda Loveless. The other four, Edith, Viola, Cecil and Clotine were from the second wife.
My grandfather's name was Oscar, not George (he got that right). Your grandmother's maiden name was Delphia Lucille Loveless, not Lovelace. She was a cousin to Ethan and Carl through their mother. Mom was born in Needs Creek, Ark., on Sept. 22, 1918. Both she and dad graduated from Arkansas State Teacher's College in Conway, Ark. He taught at Greenbriar, Ark., and she taught at ???? before they married and moved to Little Rock and he started working for the Cotton Belt.
If you would like any more info, I (or mother) can supply it. You and Mike, as you know, are the last in the Oscar Surratt line.
Ethan had a daughter,
Carl had a daughter, so no Surratts there.
Edith had a daughter and son,
Viola had not children,
Clotine had two sons and twin daughters. Clotine is the only survivor of her generation. She live in Los Gatos, Calif.
Let me know if you want more details.

My name is Kathy Jones, I saw on one of the census that I was looking at from S.C that you are researching the Surratt line. My husbands mother was a Surratt,thought maybe you might like to have some of the info that I have. I have just started this line, as I'm researching both my family lines and my husbands. I't a handful I can tell ya.
I can start with Ervin W Surratt born/ Jun 5, 1848 ALA. Married a Sarah Ann Sims, they had 3 children one of which was a grandfather to my husband, James H. Surratt.,
We think maybe Ervin's father was John B Surratt and with his second wife, Catherine Castleberry, 2 children Almond and Samuel. I don't know who John B was married to the first time, but family bible states Mary Jane Davis, or Ellis the last name very,very hard to read, anyway if any of this sounds like it could connect with any of your stuff,
I have in depth on most of the lines I would be glad to share with you. S.C fits into this some how, I still have a lot to put on my computer, but I will be working on it as I can....TTYL Kathy

Hello again. First of all, James Hampton Surratt (Bill) isn't dead!
At least as far as I know. I thought he was married to Dorothy first. Actually Dorothy is a nickname. Her maiden name is Emma Lola Darnell (listed on my husband's birth certificate).
Sandy could not have been born in 1948 because that is the year that I was born and she was about 8 or 9 [b. 1958] when we got married [c. 1966 ] ( I was 18).
Also Timmy is adopted. He is the son of Kathy (daughter of Joann from a previous marriage) Bill and Joann adopted him when he was a child.
My husband, Jimmy Surratt, was raised by his grandparents when Bill and Dorothy got a divorce. He was about 2 at the time. Dorothy remarried and died in 1974 Jimmy was born Jan. 18 1946 (birth certificate).
I will send your message to Sandy and see if she can help you with information about Joann (her mother). If there is anything else you need to know, just ask me and I will help you if at all possible.
Thanks! Kay Surratt

Hello there. My daughter, Wendy sent me your e-mail. It was very interesting. Perhaps I can fill some of the blanks! I'm not sure about the first 2 children. I only knew 8 children. If there were more , neither my husband or I ever knew about them. Perhaps they were stillborn or died in early infancy.
I remember Granny Rat ( Juanita Allinder Surratt) telling me that her grandmother's name was Courtney. I don't know which grandmother.
Willie May Surratt ( Bill ) , is still alive and she married Alfred Byrd and had 4 boys, Tommy, Johnny, Dickie and Eddie Joe. (Kathy Jones, has 5 Sons: Jimmie plus above)
Edna Olline Surratt married Murray Lockhart (deceased) and had 2 girls, Edna Earl Lockhart (Brannon) and "Butchie" Lockhart (Taggart) (deceased).
James Hampton [prs FGS 2256 & 57] ( that's funny we always thought his middle name was Hardin) Surratt married "Dorothy" first (deceased) . they had 1 son, James Hardin Surratt 3rd (my husband Kay Surratt)
He then married Joann and they had 1 daughter, Sandra Kay (Sandy). m. Mr. COLLINS (E-Mailed me 08 Aug. 1999

Christopher Scott and Steven Foster and 1 daughter, Wendy Jane.
My oldest son is the only one that is married and they don't plan on having children for several years, cause they are both in college.
By the way, my husband was raised from the age of 2 (1948) by Jim and Juanita Surratt (his grandparents). They were both fine people. His grandmother was a remarkable woman who lived to be 98!
Juanita Carnell married Orville Stader (deceased) and they had 3 daughters, Wanda , Linda and Diane.
Dora Lee married Burl Anderson (deceased) and they had 2 sons,
Pete "Red" and David (both deceased), and 2 daughters, Betty Sue "Susie" and Sally.
Velma Lucille married K. Clinton Jones (both deceased) and had 2 sons, K. C. Jr. and John, and 2 daughters, Mary and Cindy.
Joann (deceased) married Terry Woods and had 2 sons, Terry Jo and David.
Jerry Max ( my husband and I got a laugh at that) married Barbara Epperson first and they had 1 son, Philip (deceased) and 2 daughters, Becky and Vivian. His second wife is Shirley.
Jerry's son Phil had 1 son, Jeremy. As you can see there were a lot of female offspring. As far as I know, Jeremy and my 2 sons are the only surviving Surratts to carry on this branch of the Surratt family. (Kathy Jones had no Info on this Family.)
I hope this information is of some help to you. It is as accurate as I know. I know most of the people that I have mentioned.

Subj: hello again
I received your latest info on the Surratt's. I have further info:
James Hardin Surratt III-born-Jan. 18, 1946
Christopher Scott Surratt-born-Feb. 5 1968
Steven Foster Surratt-born-Sept. 17, 1970
Wendy Jane Surratt-born-Oct. 13, 1978
Also the former information you had about James Hampton Surratt was correct. My husband had always assumed that since he was the 3rd then his father must be James Hardin Surratt Jr. Everyone calls him Bill! I sent an e-mail to Sandy (Surratt) COLLINS) and she said his middle name is Hampton.
It appears that Robert Michael Surratt and Michael Scott Surratt are distant cousins of my husband. From what I can tell they are decendants of John D. Surratt (brother of Ervin Surratt). My son, Scott was born at Texarkana around the same time that they were born. We only lived there about a year so we didn't know there were any Surratts in the area.
By the way, my maiden name is Murphy. And I am also diabetic! I got sick about 5 years ago, was having stomach problems and vomiting frequently. My Dr. said I had type II diabetes and I've been on medication since then. I've done pretty good. Was taking Glucotrol and glucophage and just started taking Amaryl. My mother and 4 of my 5 sisters are diabetic also. It's a tough disease! Sometimes it's hard for me to type cause my fingers get numb. I'm sure you know all about that!
Well, enough of my rambling! I just wanted to thank you for all the information. Do you happen to know the origin of the Surratt ( Sarratt, Sarrett) name? Are there any other spellings? I had never heard of the name until I met my husband. I was born in Gurdon, (Clark Co.) Ar. That's where I met him.
Again, thanks for your help.

Date: 27 Dec 1999 6:04:55 PM Pacific Standard Time
Found the messages on the Arkansas Baker's interesting although none of the names ring a bell. Family lore has mentioned that there are some Blackfoot Indians in our ancestry, but I don't know where. My Baker, Charles Stephen (Biggers) Baker was born in Tennessee, but married Francis Emiline Surrett who was from Arkansas, I don't know if the native blood is from the Bakers or the Surretts. For what it's worth that is my 2 cents. Happy hunting,
Bobi Mize, E-Mail:
I don't believe that the Frances Emeline SURRETT b. 1862 in Arkansas, d. 1916 in Ellenwood, Ga. that married Charles Stephen BAKER, b. 1856 TN, d. 1898, was a "SURRATT" or a "Blackfoot Indian"
The "Blackfoot Indians" were never in the Southeastern part of United States, Your Frances Emline is a "HENDERSON" Not SURRETT [SC 1.2]
b. 1862, Conway or Pulaski Co's., (present-day Faulkner Co.), AR. She was a18y Living w/ Ervin W. & Sarah/Sally M. (SIMS) SURRATT, in the 1880 Census, for Faulkner Co., AR. [See T-9, Reel 44, E.D. 54, F.G. 039] Relationship was listed "N/R" (Not Returned) (She was not a Sister or Daughter ..prs)
Faulkner Co., Arkansas was created in 1873, from the larger Pulaski & Conway Co's. The County Seat is Conway, AR. 72032. It is located in the center part of the State. It is Bounded by Van Buren & Cleburne Co's on the North; White & Lenoke Co's on the East; Pulaski Co. on the South; and Conway & Perry Co's on the West.

2nd E-Mail: Date: Tue, 28 Dec 1999 9:25:03 PM Eastern Standard Time
Thank you for you response to my posting. At this point I have no proof that Francis was a SURRETT. My information came from Calvin and Margie BAKER, who are currently (as of last spring) living in Rex, Ga. Calvin is my g-grandfather's nephew. He is the grandson of Charles Stephen Baker. His father was James Riley Baker.
Calvin's wife (Marjorie Fielder) had been recording the Baker family through personal conversation's with family members, and shared her info with me. Apparently the grandchildren thought Francis' last name was Surrett. Perhaps she was adopted? Thanks for the info, now I know why I could not locate Francis as a 'SURRETT'. I will try to contact Marjorie and find out her source.
I have no info on Surrett's, but have info on Charles Stephen; his father, Riley S.; and his 5 sons and 1 daughter. Will share if interested.

A few weeks ago you wrote that you believed Frances Emeline Surrett (AR) who married Charles Stephen Baker, and died Ellenwood, Ga., was Frances Henderson, who was apparently living with Surrett's in AR.
I have just received a copy of my g grandfather's death certificate which names his mother as "Frances Serett" (my grandmother was the informant) and his father as Charles Baker. Does this info help or just confuse matters even more? Or can this be considered proof?

Hello Paul,
I have visited your web site on numerous occasions and it is an excellent source for Surratt information. I know you have spent many many hours, weeks, years researching all Surratts, and various spellings.
I also have a web site named The Zangerl & Allied Families on Family
Tree Maker, if you would like to visit it. There you will find some data on the Arkansas Surratts that you may not have.
Please accept my appologies for mentioning this but, abbreviation for Arkansas is AR., not AK. AK is abbreviation for Alaska.
Please let me know if you would like any information, I might have.
Thank you and, again your SITE REALLY IS SUPERB! !

Thanks for the E-Mail, we have talked before on the Faulkner RootsWeb GenConnect Board.
Your are so right Re: AR. vs. AK. I was so worried about correcting Ark. to AR. I screwed up with AK-Alaska. Have fixed in my PC local site, will up-load revised GEDCOM, later this year.
I Reviewed your site! looks great (Photos ar great!) You might want to give credit to your source Dr. Chester Kennedy [See REF:#002] You have No Info. on John B.? & 2nd w Catherine M. (CASTLEBERRY) SURRATT parents?
Let me go over your site info, get back to you soon? Would like to compare notes. ..prs

This is my grandmother! I thought I'd never locate any of the Surratt family. The closet I was aware of was a "double cousin" who died recently. I'm from Arkansas, now living in Kentucky. "Mama Goode" had 4 children and 2/3 babies died at birth, Carlos died at few years of age.
My father, Russell Daniel Mills, Sr., was born in 1914 and died in 1972. He had 2 sisters. Joy Mills -- Handy (2d marriage) and Floy Mitchell Mills Day, still living at age 91!
I had 3 brother and 2 sisters, my youngest brother, Russell, Jr., was killed in a car accident in 1973 at age of 17. We were returning from Needs Creek annual Homecoming and viewing my father's headstone for the first time. Mom has 12 grandchildren, 16 great grandchildren and our first great-great due in March--living in Little Rock, AR!
Please write. (I responded to your Web page.)

CC: "Wilson"
Thank you for responding. I misunderstood previous readings; thought we were definitely related.
     Ans: I mean this SURRATT branch is NOT from my Branch (we both come from the Progenitor Joseph & Katherine SARRATT) I come from the MD., NC., SC., TN, MO. branch. See my Introduction page! ...prs
Never heard before that my grandmother was named Martha.
     Ans: "Mattie" is a nickname for Martha! ..prs
My aunts are definitely Millses! No children born to the union of Mama and Papa Goode (the only g/father I knew).
     Ans: I understand that now. ..prs
Aunt Joy (MNU) Mills (first marriage unknown) Handy was married to Roy.
Aunt Floy Mitchell Mills Day was married to Harvis Day and they have one daughter, Joy Leta Day Wilson, two g/children, and 2 g/grandchildren.
My mother's name if Euna E Lowry Mills (age 83). She was born in Needs Creek in her parents home, formerly the Williams homestead. My oldest brother was born in the same house!
I'm in Needs Creek at least yearly if not more frequently. We have much family in the area. Aunt Joy and Uncle Roy are buried in a cemetery outside of Conway. My father died in 1972, not '71. Mama Goode (Mattie) died in 1971. I'm forwarding additional information from someone in California who is researching the Mills family. You might find something of interest there.
Why do you believe we are of no relation? How did you determine that? How/where do you locate all the information you have? Would like to know so I can do research also.
     Ans: See SFA "Cousin Identifier", place your branch across top, and list "Common" branch down the left side, to see the "Connection"
Please keep in touch!

Subj: surratt family history
I am just starting out research my husband's family history.
His mother JoAnn Surratt (deceased) was from Arkansas.
Her mother was Juanita "Neat" Allinder.
Her Father was James Hardin Surratt Sr. [SFA-FG 1722]
His parents were Irvin W. Surratt and Sarah Ann Sims.
My husband seems to think his mother told him they had cherokee blood. I would also like to find out if his line connects at all with the famous Mary Elisabeth Jenkins Surratt who as you know was the first woman hanged in the U.S. for conspiring to assasinate president Lincoln. I would love any further information you could send me.
Thank you, Sheridan Woods,
