"When one notes the appearance of James & Jacob SURRATT on the 1812 Tax list for Warren Co., TN, the question of identity arises. It does not appear this Jacob was James son (James, 4 did have a son named Jacob ..prs) because his son Jacob would have been to young to be taxed!."
[This Jacob,1 & James,4 were brothers, and James,4 named a son after his brother Jacob,3. The elder Jacob,1 SURRATT (this subject) went to Morgan Co., AL. ...prs

" Alabama opened up to the white people at the end of the War of 1812, and the best land was the bottom land along the Tennessee, Alabama and the Tombighee Rivers. The good land around what is now Huntsville was being settled as early as 1805, and the SURRATT's were in Madison Co., and Morgan Co., AL. along the Tennessee River by 1815, and perhaps earlier."

Possible Record Problem!
[Riley T., Surratt, was a on of Samuel,4 & Martha (RICE) SURRATT of Madison Co., AL. this was another brother of Jacob,1 SURRATT ..prs]
He may have left in 1813, but he did not dispose of his property until 1820. There's a record dated 1820, that Jacob,1 SERATT, a30y sold 100 acres of land in Warren Co., TN. to Felease RICHARDS.
