Books SARAH SARRATT, may actually be the most remembered member of her family, because of her indiscretions. In the minutes of the Rowan Co., Court of Pleas & Quarter Session for 04 Nov. 1795, 50 pounds were paid into the Office by GEO. FISHER, Esq. for Bastardy for SARAH SARRATT.
GEORGE FISHER had been Commissioned as Justice of the Peace in May of that year of 1795, and he was present as one of the Justices of the Court the day SARAH SARRATT came to Court. The other Justices present were MICHL. BROWN and HUGH MORGAN.
REF:#003  [REF: #90 pg38] Writes: The Legend, that has been handed down from generation to generation in this Southern Davidson County area is something like this
..." A SURRATT woman moved in here (vague gestures toward Surratt Road and Pleasant Grove Church) and lived up there and she was the mother of BEVERLY and WILLIAM SURRATT. The father was a MILLS, JOHN MILLS I think."
Books A JONATHAN MILLS, entered property on 05 Aug. 1778, on land lying on the waters of Cabin Creek. He owned two parcels, in this area, the biggest one, a tract of some 270 acres is bisected by the present day SURRATT Road. The Pleasant Grove Methodist Church is located on property he owned. A GEORGE MILLS had an adjoining tract of some 179 acres, in 1786.
REF:#003  [REF: #90 pg39] Writes: Their is a Marriage Bond record (No date was given) that JOHN MILLS, obtained a bond for marriage, at Salisbury, NC., but he gave no Bride's name. A WILLIAM TIPPETT and Jno. ROGERS were the Sureties on the Bond.
Books Why would SARAH SARRETT, Move in with the MILLS family if that is what she did? Perhaps she went to work for the MILLS family. Her father ALLEN, 1 SARRATT and Mother KESIAH (SUCREE) SARRETT is believed to have left Davidson Co. some time between 1798 and 1800 Census, She would have been 32 years of age when her parents left. Her sons BEVERLY would have been 5 years old and WILLIAM would have been 2 years old.
Books The two brothers BEVERLY and WILLIAM SURRATT, tradition strongly insists they were born out of Wedlock and their father was JOHN MILLS. [REF: #90 pg52] No proof can be found for this tradition, nor can any other record indicate anything different. Apparently SARAH SARRETT, raised her sons under her SURRATT name in the Cabin Creek area of Southern Davidson Co., NC. Whatever the true facts about their parentage, present day SURRATTS are proud to descend from these two devout family men who raised fine families and lived on the land of their ancestors with love and respect.
