Samuel,5 SARRATT, - History 1902
Samuel SURRATT, was apparently born in 1787 in Prince George's County, MA. to Alphonsus and Ann and had moved to Washington, Pennsylvania before April 1819 when he married Isabella HUSTON of that city.
(If we care to guess why Samuel,5 had chosen that area, remember John DICKERSON, 1st cousin to his father Alphonus, had settled there earlier) Mrs. Isabella (HUSTON) SARRATT, was the daughter of Joseph HUSTON and this man operated a tavern in Washington Borough.
Samuel,5 SARRATT, operated the Tavern after his marrage to Isabella. He is written up by the Crumrine in ""Bench and Bar of Washington County" published in 1902. On Page 28 it says"
"There were a number of buildings in the parts of the public square .... to the South of the alley was a tw0-story brick building, about 36 feet in front, divided into three rooms. The next room, a large one, accomodated the County Commissioners ... and the room reaching to Cherry Alley, except for a very narrow outside stairway to the room over it, was occupied by Samuel SURRATT, the borough Weigh-master. Mr. SURRATT had previously kept a Tavern on the lot opposite where the Washington Female Seminary now stands, under the sign, 'S SURRATTS INN' He was short in stature, weighing over 300 pounds and was good to the youngster who now describes him to the writer. He lived in the room over the Weigh-Master's Office, from which office he toddled around to the weigh-scales after a load of coal or hay. He died in the upstairs room ... the stairway being too narrow, he was let down straight, feet formost in his burial case, to be carried to his last home."

Writes: Chapter 3, Pg27
" Perhaps not all of John's [Squire John H., Sr.] family was a mystery to him. He may have known about his cousin Mary Anne (Surratt) SEAMAN. She lived with her family in Washington, Pennsylvania. Samuel SARRATT was Mary Anne's father, who was the brother of John's father. There were nine brothers and one sister. The names of two of the brothers still remain a mystery. It is generally believed that John SURRATT's father was one of the nameless brothers. All of the known SARRATTS were from Prince George's County Maryland. All of them spelled their names SaRRATT. But, for some reason, Mary Anne spelled her maiden name SuRRATT. The same spelling as John Surratt's.
Samuel had fought in the War of 1812. His military service ended in 1813. Sometime after that, he left Prince George's County for Washington County, Pennsylvania. Coincidentally, John Harrison SURRATT was born the same year that Samuel was discharged from the military. In 1819, Samuel married Isabella HOUSTON of Washington, Pennsylvania. After his marriage, he operated a tavern that had belonged to his father-in-law. Samuel named it the S. SURRATT's Inn. (Notice the spelling.) Interestingly, John Harrison SURRATT opened a similar type of an establishment in 1852. He named his establishment the 'SURRATT' House and Tavern. Years later, Mary Anne Surratt SEAMAN and her daughter, Mary Belle, were caught up in the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. "

Writes Chapter 9, Pg73
" Apparently, after his father had died [Aug 1862], John [John H. Surratt, Jr., age 18yrs] began to correspond with his cousin, Mary "Belle" SEAMAN. [age 15yrs] Belle was the daughter of Mary Anne (Surratt) SEAMAN [age 42yrs] of Washington Co., PA. In turn, Mary anne was the daughter of Samuel SARRATT, who had been the brother of the senior John SURRATT's unknown father.
In mid-December 1863, Anna SURRATT [age 20yrs] visited the SARRATTS in Ohio and the SEAMANS in Pennsylvania. She traveled by rail from the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Station in Washington, D.C. to Steubenville, Ohio. There she visited Joseph Huston SARRATT [age 41yrs] and his family.
Joseph was Mary Anna (Surratt) SEAMAN's brother and Belle SEAMAN's uncle. No doubt, Anna was impressed with her cousin Joseph's occupation as a jeweler and his lovely home on South 4th Street. The regional convictions concerning the war were very conspicuous. Joseph had been an early abolitionist in that section of Ohio. He promoted the Underground Railroad that managed the escape of many fugitive slaves into Canada. No doubt, Anna's visit with her cousin, Joseph SARRATT and his family, would have been a difficult one.
After visiting with the SARRATTS, Anna traveled by stage to visit the SEAMANS in Washington, Pennsylvania. There, as well, was an entirely different view of the war than Anna was used to. Belle SEAMAN had an uncle whom she adored, Major James Fleming SARRATT, [age 35yrs] U.S. Army, was a thirty-Five-year-old bachelor. From an early age, Belle had corresponded with her Uncle Jim. No doubt, Belle's love for her uncle and Anna's cousin convinced Anna that not all Yankee soldiers were bad. After all, her cousins were her relatives on her father's side, and Anna had too few of those. "
