   Possible Record Problem! #2, 1822
In Click on RedBall for Source Info. [REF:pg177], states " In 1822, Jacob SURRATT deeded some property to his Nephew Riley SURRATT, as a gift. Riley lived in Madison Co., AL., not far away."
  I have not seen this "Deed" but our Riley T. SURRATT, 1st s/o Samuel & Martha (RICE) SURRATT was only 16 years old in 1822, this seems quite young for his "Uncle" to be giving him property. Why only Riley T.? what about the other 7 Nephews & Nieces?. ..prs

Hello Mr. Sarrett,
My friend sent me your email address and a brief list of families in SC that you are researching. I too have Sarratts in SC. My most recent SURRATT is Jane who was b. 27 Dec 1808 in either AL or TN. She d. in Manassa, Conejos, CO ,16 Nov 1888.
She married Robert SELLERS in Madison AL, 25 Feb 1830.
Her father was Samuel SURRATT b abt 1784/1786, (of Madison Co., AL), md 1803 to Martha RICE , he d. 1840. His spouse, Martha was b. in 1785 (of AL) and her father John RICE was of SC.
I think Samuel's grandfather was Joseph SARRAT, but I have not documented Samuel's father and mother.
I would be pleased to share what information I have.
