Nobel J. Sarratts' Book 1897 In REF:#155, Pg4 Nobel Sarratts' Book of 1897 he states:
My Grandfather JOHN SARRATT, with his brothers, SAMUEL, LEMUEL, and sisters KISSIE and MIRNA, ALLEN SARRATT, MATTHEW SCRUTCHFIELD, EDWIN GREEN, THOMAS FARMER and others, all moved from the Yadkin River in North Carolina and settled upon the South side of the Broad River, near the mouth of Sarratt's Creek, before the Revolutionary war between the colonies and England.

Apparently Allen SARRATT (4.8) was a son of Samuel SARRATT who moved from along the Yadkin River in North Carolina to Tryon County, to the Broad River where he received a Grant of Land in 1771. This area later became part of South Carolina and Spartanburg County.
Noble Sarratt, a descendant of these Sarratts, wrote a short history of this family in the 1890's but he neglected to mention (Our Subject) Samuel Sarratt, Sr.

These early SARRATT'S used to shop in Lincolnton, of Lincoln Co., North Carolina while residing in Spartanburg Co., South Carolina. My Great-Grandfather Samuel SARRATT, lived in then Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, in 1768. There are still SARRATTS in that County and in Davidson County (in 1893). They all knew each other, even if exact relationships had been forgotten. The Mecklenburg Co., NC. SARRATTS had simply moved across the boarder into South Carolina and the Davidson Co., NC group had never left their Plantations which had originally been in Rowan County, before the formation of Davidson County in 1822."

Possible Record Problem
Nobel J. Sarratts' Book 1897 In REF:#155, Pg3 Nobel Sarratts' Book of 1897 he states:
"Samuel SARRATT, Sr., lived in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, in 1808, and there are still SARRATTS in that County and Davidson.
[This would make Samuel,2 SARRATT, 66 years old in 1808, not recorded in 1810 Census, for Mecklenburg Co., NC....prs]

  Cemetery Location Unknown (to me) Mecklenburg Co., NC.
"Father"
Samuel SURRATT, age 66yrs
1742 - 1808

(Need Photo of Headstone)
"Mother"
Elizabeth SURRATT, age ??yrs
178? - 18??
 This is the last record found for Samuel,2 SARRATT, and which one can assume he died close hereafter, he would have been 66 years old. The search is still on for the death record and burial place of Samuel, 2 and Elizabeth SARRATT. No record of the Wife living with any of the Sons in the 1810 Census, daughters marriages are still unknown. ..prs
