Dear Paul, I have read your message re info on the Sarratt Family -- hoping that there is some connection with my family. My grandmother was Cynthia LeNora Sarratt. Her parents were: Leonidas Sarratt, born April 24, 1841 in Gaffney, SC. Leonidas Sarratt was the son of Lawson Sarratt and Cynthia Brown. Lawson's parents were probably Anthony Sarratt and Nannie Morgan. I am told that a good many of the family are buried in Spartanburg, SC and that that is where the family lived before their migration to Texas & Oklahoma. This is my first attempt at sending a message, so hope that it gives you my return address. Thanks for any help. Doris.
