Mary "Polly SARRATT m. TN Burwell LASHLEY
Dated: 28 Sep 1997 14:36:51 EDT
I  am  researching  the LASHLEE/LASHLEY family.  All  of  them, everywhere! Especially the descendants of Lewis Lashley, Sr. and his wife Mary (HOLLAND). Lewis was born about 1785 in Surry  Co. VA  and  died  Nov. 1815 in Wake Co. NC.  Their  children  were:
(1) Edmund  (served  in  Rev.War,   m. Delilah OLIVEW-went to Georgia.
(2) Sarah, m. Burwell  UTLEY
(3) Brittain,
(4) Burwell m. Elizabeth OLIVE then Mary  Polly SARRATT
(5) Lewis, jr died  1844  
(6) William,  m. Elizabeth JOHNSON,
(7) Abner,
(8) Rial,  m. Patsy NUTT.
Burwell  is my ancestor, but I am also especially  interested  in Edmund's descendants. I can only prove 2 of his children: Elijah and Sarah. Do know he had a grandaughter Delilah GRACE.
Other  surnames  of  interest are:  ADAMS  (IL>MO),  ALBRIGHT (IL>MO),  CAPPS  (TN), FORBUSH  (IL),  GILMO)  (FRANCE>LA), WEATHERS (AL>MS>OK)

Subj: Paton Sarratt Lashlee
Paul, Peyton/Paton S. Lashlee is my great-grandfather. You and I have corresponded in earlier years. I recently found that Janice Ingram had placed on World Connect quite a bit of info on the Lashlee family, and she listed his middle name as Sarratt. I contacted her for her source for his middle name. She says she got that from your information. So I want to ask you the source of Sarratt as his middle name. It does sound possible, since his mother was a Sarratt, but I have never seen it in a source document. I've always suspected his middle name was Sherman, since his two sons were named Horace Paten and Sherman Cliff. And I do not know of anyone else named Sherman anywhere in the family. Would appreciate hearing form you. Thanks!

Subject: [LASHLEY] Edmond Lashley
While the list is as active as it is I want to ask a few questions.
Does anyone have information on the children of Edmund/Edmond Lashley (b30 Jan 1763 at Cabin Point in Surry Co VA--d. 7 May 1839 in Pike Co. GA, son of Lewis Lashley Sr. and Mary Holland)? Edmund's wife was Delilah Olive who lived until after 1850, over 100 at her time of death. Edmund was a Revolutionary Soldier and was granted land in Georgia. I do not descend from Edmund, but from his brother Burwell who married Elizabeth Olive, then Mary "Polly" Sarratt. BUT I am interested in proving Edmund's descendants.
Two that I have some information on are Elijah the eldest son and Sarah, the seventh child. I am a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) and would like to see his line proved so his descendants can join DAR. The family Bible burned in a house fire in Georgia. I am concerned that possibly the family lost the spelling of Lashley after moving to Georgia, and may have became Leslie's or some variation. Thanks!

i  goofed up bad on my transmission of info to you. i wrote  mary louisa  hollingsworth was the wife of w. l. sarrett. i  did  this from memory and missed it. the following is the way i have it:
wl  was married first to susan sarrett and they had  at  least two children, henry and james.
In the 1850 census they are listed with   wilson,  catherine and r. b. at this point henry is  2  and james  is 2 months.
i don't know what happened to susan,  but  wl married   Louisa Hollingsworth by 1852-3.
Also i wonder  if  susan was  a  cousin  to  wl? louisa is  a  sister  to  harvey  gerome hollingsworth who married mary louisa sarrett.
in  the 1880 census samuel wesley-12 and louisa are  together. around  1890  s.w. married louisa vick and around 1895  they  all moved  to  what became See: Tillman Co., OK. his first wife  died  abt 1904  and  he married 2nd, bell cunningham. three  children  were born  and marie sarrett is my wife's mother. marie and mary  ruth have told many times of sarretts and hollingsworths coming to the family farm in OK as well as they visiting in TN.
if  i  can get the process right i would  propose  using  the family tree maker to send files over e mail. let me know. you can probably  detect that i am new to this so bear with me. we  would also like to receive info, especially of parents of john/mary. we  live in an rv and will start traveling in the next week so  i will loose e mail capabilitiesand will have to resort to  regular mail.  this  is a real disadvantage, but am finding out  about  a portable system for rv people. hope i can do it.

2nd E-Mail: Date: 30 Dec. 1998 10:16:57 AM Pacific Standard Time

Thank you so much for the JOHN SARRETT profile and LINCOLN files.
Mary Louisa Sarrett, daughter of Wilson M. and Isabella Stevenson was my great-great-grandmother on my father's side. She married HARVEY (not HARRY) Gerome Hollingsworth. HARVEY's father was GEORGE WASHINGTON HOLLINGSWORTH, b1795. My great-grandfather was CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS Hollingsworth and my grandmother was EDNA EMILY Hollingsworth, daughter of Christopher Columbus and Emily Kennon. I have further information on this Hollingsworth branch which I will extract from my home PC and forward to you.
In addition, another great-great grandfather, JACOB BROWNING FLORENCE, was named after the REV. JACOB BROWNING in your file. I knew the naming story, but I did not who the REV was or why. JACOB BROWING'S son, JOHN invented the BROWNING automatic rifle and the BROWNING machine gun.
The amount of research you have done and the depth of detail you have is simply amazing. I am so indebted to you for making my search so much easier. Please let me know how I can compensate you for sharing this information with me and how I can be of assistance to you in continuing your research.
My best wishes for a prosperous New Year to you and your family. Jim Davis,

My earlier message stated that JOHN M. BROWNING, son of JACOB BROWNING, was the inventor of the BROWNING MACHINE GUN. In researching this today I discovered that this is incorrect. The gun inventor was born in Ogden, Utah and his father was a gunsmith.
I picked up the information I sent you from another website about the JACOB BROWNING FLORENCE family which included the incorrect information. I guess I learned a lesson and I apologize for sending you incorrect information.
Thank you again for the Sarrett info and the assassination file. Is my John Sarrett, married to Mary McMurry, related to JOHN H. SURRATT of the Lincoln conspiracy?

If I understand correctly, your parents did the research and published the original book which is now out of print. Presuming you now hold the rights, would you be interested in republishing the book?
We have corresponded previously. I am a direct descendant of John Sarratt 1760 who removed to what became Benton County, TN. I am currently working with two VICK cousins to publish a book detailing the first five generations of the descendants of JOSEPH VICK, 1640. My business is publishing, and I am doing this book on a non-profit basis as a way of honoring my ancestors.
If you do own the rights, and would be interested in discussing this further, please contact me at your convenience.

My mother & I compiled a Genealogy Computer Package called "*** PC-PROFILE *** Volume - VI. SARRATT/SARRETT/SURRATT Family Profile Compiled and self Published in Oct. 31, 1989 by co-author Paul R. Sarrett, Jr. with the assistance of my mother M. Lucille (WILSON) SARRETT, (1916-1987) She died in 1987, before it was published.
Since then, (1996) I have created what we call the Sarratt/Sarrett/Surratt Families of America (SFA) and most of the "PC-PROFILE" has been incorporated into SFA and we now have some 40,000 records in our database which most of it is "On-Line"
Our main objective was to "Share the records don't Sell them" and to exchange information with persons looking for their descendants. That's what I am trying to do.
At the present time, I see no benefit in republishing the original book (Sarratt/Sarrett/Surratt PC-PROFILE) Ed. 1989 When all the information with additions & corrections are on-line.
I do thank you for the offer. Paul R. Sarrett, Jr.

Thank you for your reply to my inquiry. I have visited your website numerous times to research tidbits of information but I was never able to view the John Sarratt of Tennessee chapter until you included the url in your email. When I again tried to get there directly, I realized that the URL you have on the website has "John3.htm" and the URL you included with your email has "john3.htm" which works fine.
I have a lot of information, including corrections and new material, on John's descendants, particularly the Hollingsworth family, which I will send you via email later. I am leaving tomorrow morning for Benton County where I will be attending a VICK family reunion on Sunday.
I recently donated $1,000.00 to cousins working with the Benton County Genealogical Society, part of which I designated for cemetery markers for John and his wife. I would very much like to support your work. How does one join the association? Do you have dues and if so, do you have an annual rate and a lifetime rate?
As a person who spends a couple of hours every day on the internet, I certainly can appreciate your commendable objective in creating an on-line database accessible to all. However, 1) there are still more people who do not have internet access than do(and who will never have it) because they are older, not-interested, don't understand it, don't have time to use it, can't afford it, etc., and 2) more importantly, there is simply no internet substitute for a high quality, hard bound book with a beautiful cover, acid free paper, and beautiful end papers which includes information regarding your ancestry that you can hold in your hands, read at your leisure, proudly put on your bookshelf, give to your children, and send to your relatives as a gift.
That's the kind of book I'm doing for the Joseph Vick Families of America. They already had one of the established "vanity, historical" publishers, at a relatively high cost per book for an average product. I offered to produce a deluxe, hard cover book, with acid free paper and beautiful end papers, and manage the marketing and sales process, on a non-profit basis. We are pricing the book at a very affordable $49.95 per copy, with a pre-publication price of $39.95 for early orders, plus $3.00 shipping. After my estimated cost of about $5.00 per book for printing, the shipping costs, and relative minor costs of marketing and selling, all of the profit will go to the JVFOA. If we sell only 1,000 copies, of which 25-30% are already pre-sold, we will generate contributions to the association of $25,000-$30,000. This is MY legacy to the descendants of Joseph Vick, to honor him and his descendants, including my maternal grandmother. I would be pleased to do the same for the Sarratt/Surratt/Sarrett book if you ever change your mind.
One last thing and I will end my lengthly response. I am a direct descendant of WILLIAM FARRAR, born late 1500s who immigrated to Virginia and whose descendants lived on FARRAR's Island there. There are numerous FARRARs who lived and live in Benton County, TN. I have a link between JOHN FARROW (you have him as FARRAR, the FARRAR database and book has him as FARROW without parentage) and SABRINA SARRATT, daughter of Joseph. I am certain that JOHN FARROW is a descendant of WILLIAM FARRAR, which would create a double kinship for me and establish a kinship with the FARRARs of Benton County. I am related by blood marriage or both to almost everyone in Benton County, and am in fact my father's 3rd cousin, my own 4th cousin, my children's 5th cousin, and my mother's 6th cousin. Some of my living cousins I have established as many as seven different kinships with because of the frequent marriage of 1st and 2nd cousins. If you have or come across any additional information regarding JOHN and SABRINA, I would appreciate hearing about it.
Please let me know how I can be of help to the Sarratt association.
Your cousin, Jim Davis

Paul, you replied to my note about Eliza Caroline Sarrett in June, 2000 and somehow I never got back to this info.
I'm researching the Wilkins name, Zachaiah Alfred Wilkins, James Decatur Wilkins especially.
A cousin of mine has a very old book with extremely faint writing that must have been written by someone in the Sarrett family. Some of the names mentioned look like R. B. dandridge Sarrett, Mary Louisa Sarrett, Washington Sarrett, W. M. Sarrett, Isabell Stevenson.
It is just a few pages but seems to be a record of births, deaths & mariages. The marriage of my grandfather, James D. Wilkins and Thomas Ena Bidwell is recorded there also. I wonder why the Wilkins-Bidwell marriage was recorded?
Any idea if these families are related. James D. Was born and lived in Benton Co., TN for a number of years before moving to Il. Benton Co is as far back as I can get with the Wilkins and obviously that is not very far back.
Why would this book end up with the Wilkins family? Surely there is some connection (at least I'm certainly hopeing there is.
