Hi Paul
- I just found your web page and I wanted to ask you if you have ever come across any information on the John Rice Surratt family from Somervell or Hunt Co., Texas. My children are descended from John Rice Surratt and his third wife Margaret Jane Clark Surratt. Their youngest child was William Claudia (a female), and my children are her gg grand daughters. I sort of have the family traced from Claudia down, but I'm trying to find the parentage of John Rice Surratt. He died about 1880 in Hunt Co., Texas I believe. According to some records the family had, he was born in Bedford Co., Tennessee about 1815. Any help you could give me would help tremendously. Thank you, Donna Chapman, (

Re: SURRITT family graves in Robertson Co. TN and Simpson Co. KY
Hi Paul-
I am not really in the blood line but connected distantly by Minnie Empson. Her Great Grandfather, William Empson was my G-G-G-Grandfather so she's a cousin....something, something removed...etc....I would say a distant relative :)
I have been documenting the Williams Chapel Cemetery where a lot of my family is buried and found the SURRITTs. I am in the process of photographing all the stones/ markers too.
I found Amanda's maiden name in Smith Co, TN Archives. It lists her as name as McGee marrying W M SURRITT. There may be 2 Amanda's that married a SURRITT and I have the wrong one. I have not spent a lot of time on it. The date of marriage is 9 Dec 1880. Maybe you can research if you want.
When I search my Robertson Co records Amanda Smelser married H M Cohea 11 Dec 1881. Not sure if that helps or not???? Robertson County does have a website for their Archives with a lot of the marriages posted.
I have a cemetery book for Robertson Co and it has a BUNCH of Smelsers in it if you need any lookups, just let me know. Stephen (17 May 1826- 28 Feb 1904) and Elizabeth A.(14 Jun 1831- 1 Sep 1889) are buried in Widick Cemetery, Robertson Co, TN with 4 of their children. I do not see any other SURRITT (with any of the spellings) in Robertson Co, TN or Simpson Co, KY (I also have a cemetery book for that county) than the ones I've listed. Williams Chapel has the most of the family then Simpson Co has William (3 Aug 1851- 29 Apr 1924)and his mother Mary (20 Sep 1826- 30 May 1909)in the Providence Cemetery. There are MANY unmarked graves and graves with fieldstones in Wms Chapel so Herman and Myrtle SURRITT may be buried there. There are NO RECORDS for that cemetery if you can believe it!! That's why I have been trying to save what records I can at this point.
If you would like any of my info on the Empson family, just holler. I'd be happy to share.
Sorry I couldn't be of any further help. Try searching on the findagrave website as it's growing fast and may not have the record today but it might have it tomorrow. You may also want to look in Logan Co, Ky as the 3 counties (Robertson, Logan and Simpson) are in spitting distance of Wms Chapel Cemetery.

Hello Mr. Sarratt,
I am writing in response to your request for more information of my branch of the SURRITT Family. I found your request while researching my grandmother's family. My name is Wm. Stephen HUDDLESTON, a grandson of Mary Myrtle SURRITT, only daughter of William M. and Amanda SURRITT.
We have very little information on the SURRITT side of the family which I suspect is because of the scandal of the divorce of Amanda and William M. Surrit.
My grandmother never talked of her father, and little of the others with the exception of her mother and two brothers. She did keep in contact with her Robert Franklin SURRITT and wife Minnie. Also another brother came to visit her from Wyoming in 1948.
The only name we knew him by was Bunch SURRITT. From the family list below I can only guess that his given name was Herman. All I know of him is that he lived in Wyoming and had one son. Records I have found in the Pineville Roundup (Wy.) list a SURRITT divorce some time in the 1930's, but no given names are listed.
The family information I found on the internet shows Smelser as the surname of the wife of William M. Surrit. My grandmother's family bible shows McGee as her mother's surname, which is the surname we knew, but there is no doubt that it is the correct family. As young teen I remember visiting both the SURRITTs (Robert F & Minnie) on their farm near Adairsville, Ky. An the COOKE families in Simpson County, Ky. And visiting the William Chapel and Providence Cemeteries where the SURRITTs and COOKE families were burried.
Information listed in my grandmother's family bible is as follows:
Amanda Elizabeth McGee daughter of Bryant(B.1/19/1840-D. unk) and Nancy Jane McGee(B.1/27.1839-D. 11/8/1877)
children of Bryant and Nancy Jane McGee:
     dau. Amanda Elizabeth McGEE (B. 12/12/1861-D.7/28/1938)
     dau. Martha Alice McGEE (B. 12/8/1863-D. unk)
     son R. L. McGEE (B. 11/17/1864 D. unk)
     dau. Sarah Malinda McGEE (B. 1/3/1869-D. Unk)
     son Jubal etter McGEE (B. 9/20/1875-D. Unk)

My great grandmother is listed as Amanda Elizabeth McGee SURRITT BYERS.
Amanda Elizabeth McGee
(Birth. 12/13/1861 – <---s/b 13 Dec 1851 prsjr
death: 07/28/19380)

     2. Herman SURRITT (B. 1884 D. unk) Known to me as Bunch, lived in Wyoming, divorced, 1 son.
     3. John B. SURRITT (B. 1885 D. 1915)
     4. William H. SURRITT (B. 1883 D. 1903)
     5. Marshall M. SURRITT (B. 1888 D. 1911)
     6. Mary Myrtle SURRITT (B. 1/26/1890 D. 10/13/1986) married Ernest Lee COOKE, c1914
     7. Wm. Redmond SURRITT (B. 1893 D. 1913)

Amanda and William M. SURRITT were divorced and she later remarried a Mr. Byers and lived in Jackson County, Tennessee where they ran a general store.
My Grandmother: Mary Myrtle SURRITT COOKE, married Ernest Lee COOKE c1911 and had one dau.
Lucille Elizabeth COOKE (B. 10/26/1913-D. 12/5/1983).
My Grandfath er E.L. COOKE died of “consumption” in 1916.
Mary Myrtle SURRITT COOKE remarried in 1918 to William Woodfork JUDD,
station agent for the Tennessee Central Railroad in Double Springs, Putnam county, Tennessee.
Mr. JUDD died on her birthday, 1-26-1948. On his death, she became the station agent for the TC Railroad there until the station closed in the late 50's. With her seniority with the railroad she took the job of the station agent at Baxter, [Putman Co.] Tn. 8 miles away and retired from their in the late 1960's.
My Mother, Lucille Elizabeth COOKE, married Donald F. HUDDLESTON (son of Stephen Coey HUDDLESTON and Mollie Ann Wilhite, Salem Community, Putnam County, Tn.) on May 6, 1931. They had three children:
dau. Leron Hazel (b. 3/18/1933- living) married Billy G. Holloway 11/30/1951, 2 children

She would appreciate you sharing where she can look and make a copy of the records for her files.
