Pvt. Obediah W. SURRETT, age 20yrs - Civil War CSA
See: Compny "A", 5th NC, Cav.
5th Battalion, North Carolina Cavalry
5th Cavalry Battalion was organized at Jacksboro, Tennessee, during the fall of 1862.
It contained five companies and skirmished the Federals in Tennessee and Kentucky. In August, 1863, the unit merged into the 65th North Carolina Regiment-6th Cavalry.
Lieutenant Colonel John B. Palmer and Major Alfred H. Baird were in command.
Obediah W. SURRETT, Jr. and [Brother?] Henry Jackson SURRETT both enlisted in the Confederate States of America Army (CSA) on 14 May 1862 in Marshall, Madison Co NC. They were in the 5th Calvery, they took their own horses and weapons with them. They both served in east TN where Henry J. Surrett was captured in Winters Gap, Tn and held by the Union Army (9th TN Regiment)
Their half brother Elbert HENRY (son of Mary Allison Surrett and an unknown Henry man) was in that unit fighting againt them and he visited Henry J. Surrett while he was a prisoner.
Henry J. Surrett was held in a log cabin and the Confederate soldiers were able to lift the side of the cabin and he was able to crawl out from under it and escape and return to his unit in 1863
Shortly thereafter Obediah W. Surrett was shot in the hip by Union troops and Henry J. Surrett left the unit to bring Obediah W. back to NC (still with the bullet in his hip, it remained there for the rest of his life.) He was 23 years old and he carved out a walking stick and walked with it for the rest of his life. As you will note all the pics of him are with a cane.
They were both transferred to the 6th NC Cav (after the battles in east TN most of the 5th Cav was captured and sent to a prison in IL)
Instering to note they were still friends with their half brother Elbert Henry after the war. per Jerry Surrett [REF:#010]
  Possible Record Problem!
Jerry list that this half-brother Elbert HENRY, was in USA troop, but I can't find him in (M230-Roll's)
I also can't find him in the 1850, 1860 or 1870 Census

Burley tobacco center set to open
by John Boyle, Senior Writer
published Nov. 13, 2004 11:00 p.m.
For mountain tobacco growers, this is the time of year when they find out just how much their hard work will pay off.
The Asheville Burley Tobacco Marketing Center opens for sales at 9 a.m. Monday at the Dixie Big Burley warehouse in Asheville. Last year, local growers sold 3.7 million pounds of burley through the center, at an average price of $1.94 a pound - a total of more than $7 million of leaf.
"The majority of the growers in Western North Carolina sell through the Asheville market," said Christopher West, county executive director for the Buncombe County Farm Service Agency, a branch of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. "Asheville is the only burley market in the state."
Dallas Surrett, a Sandy Mush tobacco farmer who's grown the crop most of his life, plans to be at the auction Monday. He's hoping for a good year but he knows storm damage in September took its toll.
"I believe it'll go about like it did last year, as far as the price," said Surrett, age 60yrs. "I don't believe there'll be as many pounds this year, on account of Frances and Ivan the Terrible."
Those two September storms hit local farmers hard, including Surrett, who grew 38 acres of burley this year.
"I lost about five acres that were totally destroyed," Surrett said. "In a good year you can get 2,000 to 3,000 pounds per acre, depending on the type of soil. So that hurts."
The auction sales continue at Dixie Big Burley and another Asheville warehouse, Planters Tobacco, through the end of the year. After a break for Christmas, buying and selling resume in January.
North Carolina ranked sixth in the nation in burley tobacco production in 2003. Tobacco is big business in the mountains - every year about 4,000 mountain farmers sell their crop in two Asheville auction warehouses, typically generating between $8 million and $10 million in revenue.
Others growers contract directly with tobacco companies. In all, local growers tend about 7,000 acres of burley tobacco, which has been an economic mainstay since the late 1800s. Auctions may fade away
One looming question at this year's market undoubtedly will be if the auction system will continue next year. In October, the U.S. Congress passed a tobacco buyout bill, which essentially ends the Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1938, a federal program that established the tobacco allotment and price support program.
Under the $10.1 billion buyout, those who own tobacco allotments will receive $7 per pound for quota owned. Those who grow tobacco, on their own or on rented allotments, will receive $3 per pound grown, based on the 2002 crop.
The buyout will eliminate the base, or "support" price for tobacco, which will make growing a crop much riskier. Some farmers likely will take the buyout money and get out of the business, while others may opt to contract directly with the tobacco companies, as some farmers already do.
"I think we'll see a large exodus of burley farmers in the Appalachian area," said Blake Brown, an agricultural economist at N.C. State University. "It's not clear to me whether they'll be able to maintain an auction or not. I think they're going to tend more toward a contract market, because we're seeing a lot of structural changes in the burley industry."
Asked if the auction system, a mainstay in the mountains for decades, could be nearing the end of an era, Brown said, "That could be the case."
The current Asheville auction market, established in part through a $2 million grant from the Tobacco Trust Fund, is entering its fourth year. Burley tobacco farmers pay no fees for warehousing, grading, assessment or other marketing services.
Opinions vary on whether an auction system will continue in a post-buyout economy.
"That's a good question," said Steve Duckett, a N.C. Cooperative Extension Service agent in Buncombe who works with the county's 450 growers. "Nobody really knows at this point. We'll probably have a need for an auction market simply because a lot of the foreign buyers like to pick and choose between the different piles so they can fill their orders a little more easily. I think there will be a need for an auction, but I don't know how it will work."
Surrett agrees with that assessment, saying buyers like to see a selection of tobacco grades and qualities. He'll nonetheless savor this year's auction, with its pungent stacks of auburn-brown leaf and growers and buyers eyeing the product.
"I've worked in the tobacco market, off and on, for 32 years," Surrett said. "It gets in your blood."
