Dear Paul:
I am looking for information regarding my great-grandfather. The name is Andrew Jack Surratt, DOB April, 1872 and I know he was born in South Carolina; possibly in the Spartanburg area. He died in 1903 in Georgia in a little farming community called Pine Log. I've had no luck finding his father and mother. I'm hoping you can be of some help.
If you have any suggestions please e-mail me.
Thank you for your time and effort.
Carol (Surratt) Turner, E-Mail: crossstitcher@mindspring.com

Paul,
Thanks for the info. All this is exactly correct. I do have some further info regarding Jack & Cynthia's children. Daugher Georgia married Henry E. Smith of Ga. not sure what yr. Obit article states she was born in Spartanburg, SC. They had several children, can get this info to you later.
J. S. Surratt (Jave) married Alice Ross, they also had other children than Mildred.
Will e-mail this also if you would like It looks as though I need to research the 1880 census, which I don't have at this time. I will keep searching. Thanks again for your help. Let me know about the other info if you are interested. Have a great day!! Carol (Surratt) Turner, E-Mail: crossstitcher@mindspring.com
Carol,
We will be looking forward in recieving additional info. on this Family.
We now believe A. Jack SURRATT Parents were part an "African American" family of Samuel & Maria SARRATT of Union Co., South Carolina

Yvonne,
     #1. In the only Census record we find for Nesbit BECK, the 1920 Census shows very clearly that he is a "Male" and the Enuberlator listed "Grand SON!"
     #2. As I explained to Carol (Surratt) TURNER in 2002, we haved researched all the SARRATT/SURRATT's in the 1880 Census for North & South Carolina's the only possible connection is to the "African American" (Black) family of Samuel & Maria SARRATT of Union Co., South Carolina. These SARRETT / SURRATT were larger Plantation Owners in the Upper Country, since the early 17th Century

Hello,
I have been doing reseach on my family ancestry and came across information that may be helpful to you. In my direct line is a Francis Emeline Surrett.
There is apparently some issue with her being an actual Surrett or someone that was taken in by the family. Either way, if it interests you, I have found her burial place and headstone In Georgia.
If this is if any interest to you please let me know. I would be glad to give further info and picture of the headstone/cemetary as well. Thanks for your time.

Found in the rear left of the cemetary, the small headstone is with several Baker plots. The marker is very small and only reads "FEB". It stands along side her husband, "C.S.B Baker". Several of their children's markers lay behind the plot.
Hope this is of any help for you. I do admire the work you've put into your own ancestry. One day I hope to uncover more of my own mysteries.

Hi Paul,
As I was beginning my search for the history and origin of the Surrett surname I happened upon your website and discovered the various spellings of this French name. I have traced my own ancestory back to ford Surrett who lived in Georgia in the early 1840's. He was in the Civil War (really too old at that time to be in the war) as well as his younger brother. Family legend has it that Sanford came from North Carolina.
My family has remained Georgia. I live just outside of Atlanta. Thanks for all the work you put into your website it was helpful and very informative.
Sincerely Rick Surrett, surretts@charter.net

I am researching our family tree for my daughter. She is doing a paper for school and was needing information. I have read all of the hard work you have compiled. It is all very interesting. I was wondering why so many variations in the spelling of the name.
Thank you so much for all of your hard work. I wish there were more sites to research from that you did not have to pay to get on. I cannot find anything about my grandmother (Cecil's wife). If you are interested in Cecil's decendants, I would be glad to give that to you. Thanks again!

Donna,
Thanks for the E-Mail & kind words.
The "Variation of this surname" The main reason is do to the subject's were "iliiterate" they could NOT Read or Write. When the census Enumerators visited the subject's Farm Place to gather the Census information they could NOT spell their Surname! The Census taker would just spell the name the way they heard it. Same for the Marriage License, Death Certificates, etc. We have several brothers living in the same County of Gordon, GA. but different Census take thusley they spelled it several different ways.
Your Grandmother Cleo Ann BELCHER, (#3. of 6 Children, 2nd Dau of William E. & Leona BELCHER) b. 26 Mar 1904, Sonoraville, Militia Dist # 1056, Gordon Co., GA. d. 28 May 1995, age 91yrs, 5mths, & 2 days, Calhoun, Gordon Co., GA. Buried: Sugar Valley Baptist Church & Cemetery. She had 5 Siblings:

Date: 31 Jul 2003 2:08:54 PM Pacific Daylight Time
Dear Paul,
You probably already have learned that Lizzie Unknown, wife of James Robert Serritt was Lizzie Inlow or Enlow depending upon who is doing the spelling. You might double check me by looking at the 1900 census of James Enlow in Gordon County, Georgia in Sugar Valley District, page 111. In the 1930 census of Gordon County, Sugar Valley District, Lizzie's brother, Harvie Inlow, age 32, single and a farm hand was living with James and Lizzie Serritt.
James Enlow the father was the son of William Thomas Inlow (b 27 December 1827 -- d Unknown probably in the 1870s) and grandson of William (b abt 1790 SC and died 1860s in Gordon County) and Elizabeth Inlow (b abt 1800 and died 09 December 1871 in Gordon County. Both were born in South Carolina. They moved to Gordon County in the mid 1840s. If you have any interest in her family I have a little information on the Inlow family -- not a great deal but some. I am a great grandson of Cornelia C. Inlow, daughter of William and Elizabeth Inlow and sister to William Thomas Inlow.
I have no information to speak of about William Thomas Inlow other than he was a school teacher and had a bunch of kids.

While browising I came across the AOL Genealogy Forum. Out of curiosity and not expecting that anything would be returned I searched for my surname. It was quite a suprise to see references to two articles submitted by you. I have always been told that there are very few Sarretts in this world.
I am the only surviving son of Paul Clendenen Sarrett, and the only "twig" left on this branch of the Sarrett tree. My father was the youngest of nine children born to James Albert Sarrett, Sr. and Olivia Matilda McMillan of Grady County, Georgia. I have a copy of JA Sarrett's death certificate that indicates he was born June 21, 1862, in Spring Place, Georgia, and died August 7, 1943, in Miccousukee, Leon County, Florida. His parents are noted thereon as Hiram Sarrett of Tennessee and Penelope Clendenen of Tennessee.

Thanks for the historical information on the Sarrett family. The reference to the Duke of Mont Sarrette who came to America with Jean Lafayett was interesting. I had heard stories about the family coming from France with Jean Laffite the pirate...not Lafayette of the Revolutionary War. Maybe the family has slightly more noble beginnings than I had suspected.
I have filled in the Family Group sheets for the JA Sarrett, Sr. family, the Paul C. Sarrett family, and the Ronald E. Sarrett family. Most of the information came from the JA Sarrett, Sr. family Bible or from genealogy worksheets that my Aunt Mattie, Martha Louise Sarrett Lewis (SFA#1796) prepared with the help of my father. I have some birth, marriage, and death certificates as well. If you want documentation I will provide what I have.
The genealogy forms appear to have been sent to Aunt Mattie in 1979 by the same Miriam Newsom John who has corresponded with you. Evidently, Aunt Mattie responded to a genealogy inquiry in the Cairo (GA) Messenger that had been placed by Ms. Miriam John. I doubt that Aunt Mattie ever returned the completed forms to her. A good bit of the handwriting is my father's. He had a fantastic ability to remember names and dates so I suspect he provided a great deal of input.
Cousin Elsie Dodson, daughter of Alberta May Sarrett (SFA#1791) still lives in Thomasville, Thomas Co., GA. I will send her copies of this correspondence with the request that she fill in as many blanks as she can. These Sarretts didn't move very far from home. Generations were born, married, and died within 100 miles of Thomasville.
Josie Dekle, son of Clara V. Futch (SFA#1782) still lives on the Hiram Sarrett homestead. When I saw him in the summer of 1993 he was in very poor health. He can be contacted at Route 2 Box 351 Cairo GA 31728
This project made me aware of a very strange coincidence: Hiram Sarrett died May 3, 1895. My father died 100 year to the day later May 3, 1995.
I have tried to attach the sheets as a file to this e-mail. I have never tried this before. If you don't receive them let me know and I will try again. Or I can fax them to you.

There is only 1 other family that I know of in GA with our last name.. I was just curious if any of you were of my background.
My grandfather William Francis Surrett is a preacher in Gainesville Ga, [Hall Co.]
my father William Micheal Surrett [b. c1949] passed away last year Oct 25, 2002 age 53yrs
It has been ruff on the family.
My father had sisters Vicky (Surrett) Graham of Charolette North Carolina, and
Pam Surrett of Gainesville Ga.
I have not had much contact with the rest of the family because thay all live north of GA. I know some of my other family names are GRAHAM, CARTER, MCCULLUM, and MUTTER.
My family history:
I know my original last name was SURRATT. It was changed by the military as a screw up on my grandfathers military records. He just never bothered to change it back.
I know in some way I am related to Mrs. MARY (Jenkins) SURRATT (the first woman legally hung in the USA)

My great 3x grandfather was John Sarrett of Chattanooga, (Hamilton Co., TN. ) originally from Georgia but changed his last name to Cereatt after the Lincoln assasination. But I can find nothing on him.
He was in Chattanooga between 1870 and 1920 and in Cahutta, (Sic Cohutta, Whitfield Co.) Georgia before that.
I know you are busy but if there is some database of Sarretts you know of I would appreciate knowing how to get it for myself. Thanks for any info at all you could pass along on Sarretts.

Paul,
Thanks for your info on John M. Surratt of Whitfield County. I believe the Surratt you found is the right one, born in 1844 and showing up in the 1860 Whitfield County census. I can tell you that he had 2 children, born after he moved to Chattanooga, [Hamilton Co.] TN.
One was George W. (1876-1932) and Betty (birth date and death date unknown).
However his children spelled there name Cereatt. And I believe John changed the name of his spelling before moving to Chattanooga.
If there is any more info you can add I would aprreciate it, or if there is a database available I can access let me know. Otherwise, now that I know his family came from Spartenburg County South Carolina I will try to obtain those census records. I want to trace him back all the way to Europe(easier said than done).

Paul,
I traded some emails with you about a week ago about a John M. Surratt(sometimes spelled Cereatt) from Cohutta Georgia(Whitfield County). I have found tons of stuff on his son George W. Cereatt of Hamilton County (Chattanooga),TN. But John Surratt/Cereatt does not show up in any Hamilton County census. My grandfather now tells me that John Surratt lived most of his life in Cohutta (Whitfield County)Georgia till about the 1920's. But I have no access to Whitfield County records. Basicly if you see a John Surratt in any north Georgia records between 1880 and 1920 I'd like to see it. Last time you emailed me good stuff on these Surratts up until the 1870's.
Thanks for what you have already sent me. This John Surratt/Cereatt of North Georgia is the only missing link from Chattanooga to France. David Brown, Technology Training Team; dobrown@.utk.edu
David,
The reason I don't have any info. after 1870 for John SURRATT/CEREATT is because of the name change.
I used the "Soundex" number S630 for the various SARRATT/SARRETT/SURRATT spellings, thusley I did not record "CEREATT" which has a Soundex of C630.
Most large library's and the regional offices of the National Archives Administration (NRA) have the Census Schedules for your review.

Paul,
I emailed you about a month ago about a John Cereatt near the Chattanooga (Hamilton County) area who had changed his name from the original Surratt. He showed up in the Whitfield County Georgia, (just a few miles from Chattanooga) in 1860, so we thought. I finally just found my real great 3x grandfather in the 1920 Whitfield County census. But he claims in that census to have been born in Maryland, not SC as we had previously thought! I know that he had to have been in Tennessee since at least 1876, because his son was born that year in Tennessee. But sometime, perhaps shortly after the war, John Cereatt, then John Surratt, left Maryland for Tennessee. I think he left because he had the same name as the John Surratt involved in the Lincoln conspiracy. I know hostilities towards the Surratts was so great that the town in Maryland called Surrattsville was even renamed.
Now I am looking for a John Surratt from Maryland who would show up in the 1860 census there, probably living with his parents at that time. If you come accross John Surratt in Maryland let me know. His birth date could be anywhere between 1850 and 1861. He claims to have been 55 in 1920, but that is probably a few years too young since his son claimed to have been 44 that same year.
I have contacted the Surratt musuem in Maryland about a possible John Surratt related to John and Mary Surratt involved in the Lincoln conspiracy. I am awaiting there answer.
Any new info you have on a John Surratt from Maryland I would be interested in. And thanks again for what you gave me last time. At least we know the Surratts of Maryland and S.C. are probably all from France!

Paul,
I have just found out that John Surratt the husband of Mary Surratt, (she was supposedly in on the Lincoln assasination), fathered an illegitimate child in 1838. The child's real mother was Caroline Sanderson of Prince George's County Maryland. The child's name was John William Harrison Surratt born in June 1838 and baptized at St. Pauls Cathedral in Washington DC in July 1840. The last name Caroline gave then was Sarath. Her child, I believe, was my great 4x grandfather. My great 3x grandfather was John Cereatt born in Maryland and moved to the Cahutta Georgia area near Chattanooga. I think this illegitimate child was his father. I have corresponded with you before, just thought you might want this latest info.

Paul, I ran across your Sarrett Family Genealogy on line and found it interesting, since I am in the process of doing one for the Zibelin family.
For your information, I've attached a copy of what I have done thus far. I've still got slips of paper, shadings of tombstones and notes written on everything from napkins to business cards of the children of the great aunts and uncles attached, that I have yet to get around to adding.
By the way, I'm the son of Cedric Vollers Zibelin (91) and grand son of Charles Henry Zibelin Sr. I would find it interesting conversing with any of the Sarratts/Kilpatricks.
