Born in Panola county, 18 miles east of Carthage, Judge SURRATT was a native Texan. He was educated in the country schools of his native county, up to 1867. His law studies were conducted under "the Old Alcalde" Chief Justice O. M. Roberts of the supreme court of Texas who was at one time governor of this state.
Judge SURRATT was admitted to the bar in Gilmer, Upshur county, in 1870. He practiced law in San Augustine until March 1, 1874, when he moved to Waco, having been a resident of this city for the last 53 years. He was Judge of the Nineteenth district court here from October 1896 to January 1, 1913. In Masonic circles Judge SURRATT was very prominent. He was past master of Waco lodge, of which he had been a member for the last ?? Years. He was a life member of Hella Shrine Temple , Dallas, a Royal Arch Mason and a Knight Templar. Judge SURRATT was past grand master of the Odd Fellows in Texas and he had been a member of McLennan lodge No. 241. I.O.O.F. for about 50 years.
Lawyer of Old School
The death of Judge SURRATT marks the passing of a jurist of the old school. He was a lawyer who reasoned out his conclusion. He never rendered a decision hastily, but he gave thought and concentration of which a brilliant legal mind was capable.
As a district judge he had passed on civil cases of the greatest importance. Judge SURRATT was the soul of honor, a man whose ideals were noble and lofty, one who never compromised with truth, right or justice. Those who differed with him, members of the bar and others always credited Judge SURRATT with being inspired by the highest, the most unquestioned motives. He always listened to reason, and his conduct while on the bench was such as reflected the greatest credit not only upon him but the judiciary of Texas.
Judge SURRATT knew the law and how it should be applied. The principles he enunciated were in accordance with the judgment of the higher courts, and he followed, literally, the strictest interpretation of the law in rendering his decisions.
