Newspaper  Gaffney Ledger, Cherokee Co., SC.
 Feb. 26, 1953, by Dr. R.C. Granberry
  MRS. SARRATT IS CAPABLE, SUCCESSFUL IN BUSINESS
During carpet-bagger days in South Carolina, a baby girl was born to MR. and MRS. CHARLES McALWREATH AMOS {1} at their home on the banks of the Broad River, then in Spartanburg Co. and was given the name of FRANCES AMOS. That was 85 years ago last December. FRANCES AMOS, now MRS. ROBERT CLIFTON SARRATT, born December 17, 1867, was married to ROBERT CLIFTON SARRATT when she was 19 years of age, and he was 27. While recently seated in the living room of MRS. SARRATT'S home on the Chesnee highway, I said to her, Mrs. Sarratt please tell me about some of the salient facts of your long and active life."
"Why of course, if you wish to take the time," she answered....'What about your parentage, Mrs. SARRATT? Were they originally residents of this territory ? " I asked.
"My great-grandfather, JOHN McALWREATH came here from Scotland. He fought in the War of 1812. It may interest you to know that my great-grandfather was one of a group of six men to organize the first Presbyterian church, Nazareth, in upper South Carolina. This church is located in Spartanburg county, out towards the Wellford community."
" My father was CHARLES McALWREATH AMOS, born Oct. 7, 1844. When he was between 16 and 17 years of age, he enlisted in the Confederate Army and served for four years. He was wounded twice during the war".
" My mother was MARY EMALISSA McCRAW, born in 1848, in the State Line neighborhood.
Mother's father- my maternal grandfather- was ROBERT E. McCRAW.
When mother was 19 she was married at the home of Squire GAFFNEY, commonly referred to as 'the father' of the town of Gaffney." " My parents ran away to be married. Grandfather objected for some reason, to his 19 year old daughter entering wed-lock; he wanted her at home ! But, you can't stop young love ! It finds a way -so there was a wild ride on horseback, zig-zagging for ten miles, the father in hot pursuit and just as the Squire pronounced the couple ' man and wife ', with JOE WOOD as the witness, the father blew in all hot and dusty- too late".

The residence referred to as the location of her mother's marriage is " the old Gaffney home" on the Chesnee highway, not far from MRS. SARRATT'S present residence. It is a landmark of Cherokee county. " My grandfather was part owner of the Cowpens Iron Works, located near the site of the present Battle of Cowpens Monument. This enterprise was a successful and lucrative business, but was blown up by the carpet baggers at the close of the war during the Reconstruction Days." It was quite evident to me, with out MRS. Sarratt so stating, that her grandfather, CHARLES AMOS, was a man of sterling religious faith and an unusual and aggressive business personality. As I endeavored to reconstruct the living conditions of this area during the times of CHARLES AMOS, I asked MRS. SARRATT to tell me some of the things she knew of that period. " In that day, folks knew how to live at home ", she said. " Of course, they had servants a -plenty, but there were no ready -made clothes, for instance. The men made the looms, the women would spin the wool and the cotton. A room was set aside for the working of cloth. Grandfather made the cloth for all his slaves. As a matter of fact, I made all the clothes for our family during the early years of my married life. The people during those years even made their own dyes- red, black, yellow and indigo. " " My grandfather poled rafts down the river to Charleston, carrying cotton and other products for sale. He would bring back home things for the family he could not get here, such as jewelry, silverware, laces, watches, etc. In grandfather's day and in my earlier years, everybody began to drink sassafras tea in February, and on into the spring. This tea was regarded as a fine, health builder, as a tonic which purified the blood. Honey was used for sweetening. Sorghum molasses was as usual as pork and beef." Then I said to her, you were just a child during those days of 1865-1876, tell me about how things were in those days. " Vivid are those years in my mind", she said." Our people really suffered. Those carpet baggers were made up of veritable trash- the trashiest of trash ! " They worked upon the ignorance and superstition of the poor negroes, who did not know what it was all about". Continuing she said " It was necessary for our men to keep horses hidden and ready to go to avoid being captured and mal-treated. Nearly all was stolen from the plantations. Mr father-in-law had all his stock but one old mule carried away over night". " It was in 1870, that my father purchased a plantation in the vicinty of the present town of Inman. At that time I was 3 years old. Cotton was the big business of farmers, it was the back-bone of our economy. During the early years of our living in this Inman neighborhood, father, MR. GRAMLIN, and some others, furnished materials for a railroad to Spartanburg . Later on this road was extended to Asheville. In this community lived SALLIE FOSTER, now MRS. J.N. LIPSCOMB and I remember also being in a class for pen-manship with her brother, GARLAND FOSTER, who was the 'star' pen-man." When I made inquiry about the schools around 1870-1880, she said " You know , of course, that we had no public schools then. Parents paid tuition when they could organize schools. Limestone was a high school when organized in 1845, but later , after 1865 it conducted a school for primary instruction. " Do you recall your first school", I asked. " I certainly do! At five years of age , I was sent to a school near our home taught by MRS. LOU HUMPHRIES, which she conducted in her home." The home place burned when FRANCES AMOS was about 13 years of age. Her father , who had established several business connections in Spartanburg, moved his family to that place. A house was secured near the present campus of Converse College. " There had been a military school where now is the location of Converse College", said Mrs. Sarratt.

" Memory is a strange store-house. As a small girl I remember seeing in the basement of that school house the name of the father of CLAUDE ROSS, former banker of Gaffney, deceased years ago, carved or traced , in a stone. And I recall also, that the father of C.S. COPELAND, Gaffney business man at present, was in my classes. When it came time for me to leave this school in the old military building, my father carried me to Limestone to see about the situation there, but at that time was at a low ebb, and I was not enrolled in the Gaffney school. There came from Charleston to Spartanburg a MISS GIRAIRDAUX, who opened a finishing school for girls. The enrollment was limited to 15 and so in that school I was registered." At her father's home near the present campus of Converse College, FRANCES and ROBERT CLIFTON SARRATT [ BOB] were married July 6, 1887. R.C. SARRATT'S grandfather was ANTHONY SARRATT, born August 9, 1777, and his wife, R.C.'S grandmother, LETITIA by name , was born August 3, 1785. ANTHONY SARRATT was active in church work, for 60 years he was a consistent member in a Baptist church. JAMES MADISON SARRATT, born Dec. 13, 1813, was the father of R.C. [ BOB]. JAMES MADISON married JULIA ANN LIPSCOMB and there were born to this couple 13 children. BOB was the youngest of the 13.
There were five children in the family of MR. and MRS. R.C. SARRATT, as follows;
     1. CHARLES MADISON SARRATT, age 65yrs now of Nashville, Tenn.,
     2. BOYD LEMUEL SARRATT, age 63yrs (Miss) of Gaffney, SC.
     3. FERRELL AMOS SARRATT, deceased at age of three,
     4. FRANCES AMOS SARRATT, now MRS. ALLEN, Gaffney and
     5. ROBERT CLIFTON SARRATT, retired naval officer, Gaffney.
" I am proud of my children, but I suppose that such a feeling is pardonable in a mother", said MRS. SARRATT. " I have 7 grandchildren and two great grandchildren, " she exclaimed. MRS. SARRATT has been and is a vital factor in the family circle. " I have lived with my children", she said. " When they were small, I took them with me wherever I went- I have known no rewarding experience which have been as great as being with the children". R.C. SARRATT was the studious type person- studied at Limestone and Wofford, languages, especially Latin and Greek and mathematics were his favorite subjects. Teaching was his second love; his family first and other interests were farming and politics. " It is true , that MR. SARRATT and I inherited nice farms - his farm was near Providence and mine in the State Line community; both farms are still in the family." On the 29th of October, 1926, R.C. SARRATT passed from the scenes and that was 26 years ago. MRS. SARRATT has managed the estate during these decades and she stands high in the estimation of business men of the county. " I love to buy and sell" she said . The children laughingly say that I love to BUY, but NOT to sell. They also accuse me of wanting to purchase all the land that joins mine". She told of hiring SUSAN 50 years ago for the house, and SUSAN is now 83 years of age. MRS. SARRATT loved to fish and she loved horses, and loves to join all organizations and societies- she says she is a joiner.

Alumni Hall was the first student center built for the University. The building opened in 1925 and served until the middle sixties. What is currently office space in Alumni Hall was once a dining room, snack bar, and billiard room for students. These facilities and others were gradually relocated, and by 1970 Alumni Hall was no longer identified as a student center. Plans for a new student center began actively that year, and the present 58,709 square foot structure was completed and furnished in 1974 at a cost of $3.1 million. The architects were Street and Street of Nashville, and the builder was Buchanan Construction Company, also of Nashville.
The Sarratt Student Center, named for C. Madison Sarratt, exists both to provide a central location for student activities and to nurture student involvement in these various activities. Students learn to govern and lead other students by volunteering for the committees that select and execute the programs the Center presents each year: art exhibits, major concerts, nationally prominent performing arts productions, films and film series, coffeehouse acts, the Vanderbilt Dance Group, and extracurricular classes in photography, visual arts, and crafts. These committees work closely with many departments of the University, other campus organizations, and community arts groups. The Center also employs more than 150 students during the school year as projectionists, cooks, restaurant and service workers, crafts assistants, and game room and Main Desk attendants.
By working as committee volunteers or as Center employees, students acquire a sense of what it means to serve a community and a knowledge of the practical realities of applied learning. Through their participation, students grow to feel an integral part of the whole institution and gain a heightened sense of responsibility to the University community of which they are a part.

      "Prince George's Co., MD. had not been the original SURRATT home. Virginia had welcomed 'Four Huguenot SURRATT Brothers' {1.} early in the 18th century. Later the four brothers had gone their separate ways with only John SURRATT's ancestor lingering on the Potomac shore to become a substantial Planter. Born shortly after the 19th Century in Alexander, Fairfax Co., VA. John had been given the good name of John Harrison SARRATT."
