Hi Paul,
We have a lot to discuss. I would appreciate recieving detailed group sheets on Tire and his parents as well as his children.
Much of your dates on this family need to be looked at considering Cortz Claims? works in Ark.
Thank You, Karen Harvey
Jun. 8, 1993 Dear Karen,
Thank you, for your packet of June 14th. It seams we have two different family units for TYRE & SUSANNAH (MILLER) SARRETT.
My records indicate they are connected to the Spartanburg, SC. ALLEN, 2 SARRETT's which he and family relocated to Eastern Tenn. in the early 1800's.
Please review Chapters 19 to 22, Reference and Documantation Notes, along with Family Number Identification package of my TYRE SARRETT Family. I also included a 2,893 alphabetized Name Index. I have some 11,894 SARRETT / SERRATT / SURRATT database records, which I have been told is the largest ever on this family.
Based on the information you sent, this has brought up some questions or rechecking of information.
     1. You indicate on your Individual Data Sheet that SUSANNAH (MILLER) SERRATT also known as STELLA (WAITE) SERRATT. a. was on the "Trail of Tears" and settled on the Oklahoma Reservation. (This tragic march was in 1838-39) b. was listed in the 1851 Census, for Cherokee Nation, Oklahoma c. My SUSANNAH (MILLER) SARRETT, can be found in the 1830, Federal Census for Grainger Co., TN.; 1840 Federal Census for Sevier Co., TN. (doubtful if she went to Oklahoma Indian Territory 1838-9 then returned to Tennessee by 1840) d. 1850 Federal Census for Sevier Co. TN. (doubtful she left Tennessee, year later to be listed in 1851 Cherokee Nation Census, when she had 4 children and family in Sevier Co., TN.)
     2. Your GEORGE SERATT - 61, Family Group Record #173, 1st Son of Tyre & Susannah (Miller) Seratt a. b. abt 1800-05 Grainger, TN (Note: Tyre would have been only about 12 or 17 years old at that time? Other records indicate Tyre was still single in the 1810 Grainger Co. TN? b. I have a completly different family for your George Seratt - 61. He was a son of JOHN SERTT and Wife Unknown of Spartanburg Co., SC. later Bedford Co., TN. (See attached Family ID Sheet)
     2. Your JOHN SERATT - 31, Family Group Record #60, 2nd Son of Tyre & Susannah (Miller) Seratt a. b. abt 1810, Georgia? (My records indicAte Tyre and Susannah were never in Georgia. In the 1840 Census records for Sevier Co., TN show a first child as Unknown Daughter (20 to 30) abt 1815. b. I have your JOHN SERATT as being born in Fayette Co., KY. as he indicated on the 1860 Census for Washington Co., AK (M-653, State Reel 31, Page 309, F.G. 052) c. He is not a son of Tyre Sarrett, nor a brother of your George Seratt, but the fith Son of WILIAM & MARTHA (Unknown) SURRETT of Prince George Co., MA. Then later of Lincoln Co., NC., then later of Fayette Co., KY. (See Attached Family ID Sheet) c. I have very little information on SARRETT / SERRATT / SURRATT of Indiana, except for "Pappy" JAMES SURRATT information. I will make a point to cover this area in the near future.
     3. Your JOHN SERATT - 31, Family Group Record #60, Siblings: As you will notice from the attached Family ID. Sheet on John Seratt, I have some additional sibling information as well as some different dates and locations, i.e.:
a. WILLIAM M. SERATT, married abt 1842 (this would make him 6 years old at the time of this marriage, should be 1867 Mo.)
b. MARTIN SERATT, married abt 1865 (should be c1859 as per Census and his siblings birth) etc, etc.
c. On your DECENDANCY CHART, Page 1 you list 9 siblings of second wife NANCY ANN (LANE) SERATT. This would make 17 children from this household? I believe the last three were siblings of 1st Son GEORGE SERATT. Plus the last sibling JOSEPH S. SERATT, b. 1857 would be the 2nd JOSEPH in the same family.
Do you have any Family Bible Records on any of these families?
I would be most interested in receiving copies of NANCY (SERATT) LANE Cherokee Nation citizenship application # 22231 of 1906 or any other documentation you may have on the SARRETT / SERRATT / SURRATT Let me know what you are interested in and I will do the same. Pleas keep in touch.
Sincerely, Paul R. Sarrett, Jr.

[Letter Jun 27, 1993]
Dear Paul,
I received your very large packet of information on the SARRETT/SERAT Family and was truley impressed. The time you have deicated to this family goes without description. It will take me a long, long, time to digest all this data.
I just wanted to ley you know that I will be sending copies of the family data to you within the week. After studying your material and what was filed in the courts, it appears there is a great descrepancy as to the identity of everyone on the family group of TIREY SERAT. The two major conflicting material are:
     1. The Bible record of a grandson of John SERAT, in which it states that John Serat, b. 1810 was the sone of Tirey SERAT and Susan MILLER.
     2. Testimony of A.J. NORDIN of Crawford County, Ark. b. 1854 in Crawford Co., that he knew Susanna MILLER, and that she was Cherokee Indian on the Reservation.
     3. Cherokee Court of Claims by Nancy SERAT LANE stating that she was the grandaughter of Tirey SERAT and Susan MILLER., There is other historical biographies in the records which outlines the movement of the family from Tenn., Ind., MO. and KY. I have located John SERAT in the "Gold Fields" of Calif. where daughter Polly said he was located in her deposition. This explains why wife Nancy was alone with some children in 1850 Census, Washington County, Ark.
     4. There is a conflict as to where John SERAT was actually born. I am not sure anyone knew where he was from. I have found KY., IN., IL. and "Old Cherokee Nation" mentioned several times. With the absence of Census Records, it is difficult to locate the family 1810-1820.
     5. Children listed on the two groups sheets, totally 17 for John SERAT, come from the Cherokee Court of Claims ...and... then some additional family records have provided dates.
     6. Stella STANWAITE - is a name which Uncle George NORDIN, recalled being the name of his Great-Grandmother Susan (MILLER) SERAT. I have never confirmed this being a part of the family, but Stan WAITE was Cherokee Chief widley written about ..Suspect all Cherokees want to be related to him.

On most sources, the "Old Cherokee Nation" is referred to as the place of birth for both John & George SERAT, sons of Tirey SERAT. The "Old Cherokee Nation" was in both Tenn. and GA. If Tirey was married on the tribal lands, a marriage certificate possible would not exist. It is also interesting that John SERAT left Tenn. about the same time Andrew JACKSON was taking the lands from the Indians as well as their rights.
There does exist a list of Cheorkees in the time period - you might find Tirey SARET living with the tribe. .. there were a number of "renegade whites" listed amoung the tribe. I think this is an area which needs to be checked. I really do believe the SERATS in Ar. and Tenn. are kin, but for the life of me I cant straighten it out!
I will be sending you a copy of Susan MILLER appearing on the rolls in 1851, where she received money, as well as the Court of Claims. On the Court of Claims doc, it appears that John was the first born.
Thank you ! I'll let you unravel this mess!
Sincerely, Karen Harvey
p.s. If you can give me any doc wheir list the connection between Tyrey and his wife and children, I would appreicate it.
also could we be talking about 2 different Susan MILLERS? Thank you!
[Letter: Jul. 03, 1993]
Dear Karen,
Just a note to thank you, for your packet of June 27th. This is what makes Genealogy research so interesting, (and some times frustrating) Just when you think you have it all together, someone comes along with a complete different story.
This is not a science, but based on assumptions, logic and with very little bit of fact or proof. One must keep an open mind and be able to switch thoughts as additional information is discovered.
I to will be reviewing your New information and try to make the right connections or assumptions.
Keep in touch.
Sincerely, Paul R. Sarrett, Jr.

[Letter: Jul. 26, 1993]
Dear Karen,
I trust our Indian Grandmother's soul, where she now Dances in the Light, on the other side of the river. That our research is getting closer to the truth. Just maybe she will see her place in the Serat family circle.
Enclosed please find the revised:
Chapter 19 on ALLEN,2 SARRETT,
Chapter 21 on JOHN,15 SERAT,
Chapter 21 on JAMES D. SARRETT,
Chapter 33 on Notes & Reference
Please review, make any corrections, addition as you feel necessary. Note some of my requests or comments.
I am also sending this same packet to your Cousin Mz. Virginia Nordin, Vista. CA.
Keep in touch.
Sincerely, Paul R. Sarrett, Jr.

Hi Cousins
I have uploaded the descendents of Allen Seratt of about 1610. His descendents include Tirey Seratt and Cherokee Susannah Miller of NW Arkansas.
The Molecular Genealogy Project came to our local Genealogical Society mid July and we presented our 6 generation family group sheet - and donated DNA samples. We are joining the local Cherokee Township here in NM to see if we can find the ancestry of Susannah Miller and to confirm or not the Dawes enrollment of Nancy Seratt Lane,gg daughter of Susannah Miller Seratt.
Anyone interested in the on going research let us know and we will put you on the cousin mailing list. Family history suggests a link via our Miller to Conferderate General Stan Watie of Indian Territory. Serats resided early in Cherokee County, North Carolina abt 1800.
Update should be available for download in a few days. Always anxious to hear from family

Dear Mr. Sarrett, Jr.
Karen Harvey, my first cousin by marriage, has suggested I contact you for help concerning my ancestors, Tirey SERATT who was married to Sus An Ah MILLER, (Cherokee, Tennessee, about 1800.
I have most of the Serat(t) Cherokee Claims filed in 1907.
My connection comes from Louisa Jane (Seratt) Lane, who married Andrew Jackson NORDIN.
Have you been able to find Tirey SERATT and Sus An Ah, with any documentation?
Please let me know what costs might be involved, and perhaps if I may be of any assistance to you.
Yours truley,

Hello Paul;
It has been a while, since I have worked on Nordin/Seratt. Have been trying to get my Desmond out of Ontario, Canada and back to Ireland. Difficult, & may be impossible, due to the early date (1767) & earliest record found is 1802 referring to 1792.
Anyway, came across this web site at while I was checking where I might find my name on the internet! Realize a lot of the information here, is what you have previously sent me. I laugh when I read about Karen Harvey & her Stella Standwaite claims. Please don't put that on the web site!
I believe SusAnAh Miller was Cherokee, but, blended into the white community, before there were any Trail of Tears! They were referred to as "old Settlers". Going to Arkansas long before the removal. I have not found much on Seratt.
I also have bumped heads with someone related to the Desmond's. They have their own little stories already compiled to fit their reality. Difficult when there is an absence of records.
I appreciate your diligence & ethics for the truth!

Looks like you've done a lot of work on your genie page. Didn't get to view it all, AOL kicked me off before I could get very deep into it.
I share some of names you list in your references and notes. Maybe I'll be able to get back in and do some more looking.
You've got some info in there that has eluded me for along time.
I've only been working on genealogy for about 7 years. I'll write more later, after I'm able to get back in. BTW, if your interested, I linked from family tree makers web through there new internet search.
Thanks again, Good Job.

Is this something that is for sale? I see in chaper 2 and 3 some of the people that I havein my tree.

Don't know how many names on the seratte side I have. Will make this short and chat later

In the later 1980's and early 1990 I published a "Family Profile" of Sarratt/Serratt/Surratt (146 various spellings) families in America. (3,335 records)
I did BIO's on some 6 Volumes, you didn't say above, but I think (based on your surname) You mean:
Volume IV - Tennessee
Vol. IV, Chap. 2 Tyre SERRATT/SERRATT (c1788-c1835)
Vol. IV, Chap. 3 John,15 SERATT (c1810-c1861)
I can make copies from the Profile (7 cents per page) or send a .TXT (ASCII) file of these chapters.
Attached is Tyre, profile which can be read or printed with a Text Editor, such as Windows "Note Pad."
I would like any additions/corrections to these families! ..prs

The few group sheets I have are 3sets on brothers of Leonard. Fouth set coming from a cousinI just located. (I sent her your link on aol) 9 of 11of Leonards children, one and two child died at birth and shortly after. And then just a couple of my generations. Not too many of my kin are interested in it. But every once in a while I get suprised. How was the best way that you got info from them? Can I pass you a gedcom file on this info? Not to good at the internet yet, got a lot to learn.
And if you can send the ascii file on John.
The software I'm currently using for my genie is PAF and I'm also looking at Family Tree maker. Going to have to decide what to use.
I really like the ways you've done your work. I think I'll pattern mine after your's. I don't have the organization that you do, and it causes me to cover areas that I have already researched.
Got to get ready for church chat later. Don Seratte, [email protected]
P.S. Send me your postal address so I can get you what I have. I'll talk to my ISP and see if he know's how to send the group files.
We have no "Proof" that John15 was a son of Tyre, just the census & locations of the two as well as no other family unit fits. As I said in the heading.
Attached is the Text file on John15 and family. I have "Zipped-Up" this 85KB file and it will need "Un-Zipped" before it can be read, printed, etc.

Thank you,Paul, for sending me your information on the John Serat line. Yes, I would be glad to share information with you. I will have to send copies by snail mail and the only address I have is the one at the end of you e-mail that said Auburn, CA. I believe I would need more than that for it to reach you. I can not access your Home page as it is on aol and my worldnet.att service says it can not access service to your server. I do have information that you don't have.
My grandmother Martha Seratt Bunyard was daughter of Joseph Street Seratt who was the youngest son of John, the bellmaker, and second wife Nancy Ann Lane.
Martha died in 1980 but I was able to get a lot of information from her and my mother. Mama remembered Joseph,Aunt Polly Ann Serat Poor and Mary Adeline Serat Williams Grimes (daughter of Samuel). Adeline's son Claud Williams was the pitcher that was kicked out of baseball because of the black sox's scandal in the world series in the 1920's.
Do you have the military records of the civil war for George, Samuel, William and Samuel P. Lane? I do have them. I have been told that I am the only one to have the military records of George. Several people thought he and Arbella Nordin died when their son William Henry died but I have military records that show that isn't true. If you will send me you address I will send you what I have.

Samuel b. ca. 1843
I think that some of John and Elizabeth's children are shown in homes of his children, George and Nancy E. (Henry, Calvin, and Jeremiah).
The first two lists are from census records. The one of John and his wife, Elizabeth Ridenour is taken from an I.G.I. record.
I do not have much information on my Serratt line. I was trying to search the lists that you have on your Saratt family lines, but I couldn't figure our how to do it.
Do you have any suggestions on how I can do so?
I am also interested in reading info on the orgins of the name. I am glad to have confirmation of it being of French ancestry. I would appreciate any help! Thanks so much.

We, for sure have the same family members. Charles M. was my grandfather and he and wife Zadie had 13 children. I am "Rod" Rodney Brassfield. My dad was Vernon and we live here and around Muskogee. My grandfather lived in Eufaula and Wagoner I.T. a part of his life and in the Muskogee area the remainder of his life. My family has been trying to find a connection with Susannah Miller to obtain a CDIB card and have been unable. I have copies of the same applications that you have on your web. Could you, and would you tell me if you have a card and if it is through the family members that I can find a roll number and that would have a connection to my family?
    Ans: Sorry, I do not have a CDIB card for Susan (MILLER) SARRETT Only reference to the Cherokee nation were the 1907 Application which all were denied.
Thank you, [email protected] or [email protected] Thanks again and I love your site. I have been reading everything! I noticed something about Francis Scott Key and can't find it again, where please? Thanks!

Seratt heritage...

Hi Paul,. You don't know me, but I've been privileged to your work on the SERATT heritage for quite some time. My mother got me started in this about 6 years ago, when she allowed me to copy a copy of a family profile...Volume - VI Sarrett Family Tennessee which you put together somewhere around 1993. Thank you so much for all your hard work...We've enjoyed knowing all the info you've gathered and documented so well.
This said I'll try to tell you who I am...beginning with Tyre (Tirey) SERAT c.1788 -1835 I branch off on his 1st son John,15 SERAT c. 1810-1865 line...then to
John J. SERAT b. 1852 married to Susan Cravens...
from there to William Willis SERATT c.1879-1957 married to Minerva Elizabeth (Lizzie ) LANE... [FG 94]
then to William Clarence SERATT c. 1908-1998
married to Rosie (Rosa ?) Lou PACE b. 1908 (My grandparents)...
then to Stella Mae SERATT b.1934 married to Ray EASTER (my parents)...
I'm the 1st born of their kids... Judy Raylene (EASTER) (KENNEDY) HARRINGTON b. 1955... I have one sister Jo Ann (EASTER) (SPEARMAN) JOHNSTON b. 1957 and one brother Clarence Ray EASTER b.1961.
This may be stuff you all ready have or don't need, but I have a lot of info on my son, my siblings & their kids, my parents, grandparents & most of their kids (my aunts & uncles & their kids). Some info on my great-grandparents & their kids...I don't know if you need any of this stuff or not. I'll just let you contact me if there is anything I can pass along...My mother Stella thought, that at the time you passed her this info that I described earlier, you were needing information on my great-grandparents, my grandparents and all their kids & grandkids...I mailed to the address on the info bookllet. Then was told by my aunt, Linda (SMITH) SERATT married to Kenneth Dale SERATT...William Clarence SERATT's son, that you had moved and she didn't remember your current address but she'd give it to me when she recieved your next Christmas card...well, to make a long story short...I never got it. I happened across your web site quite by accident (blessing !!) It's wonderful...I'm new to the internet and totally illiterate to computers...but obviously I'm a bit too windy; so I'm going to hush for now...if I can return the favor of giving back some of the great info that you've rewarded my family with please let me know.... Thanks...Judy. ([email protected]
Thanks for the E-Mail, We moved from Orange Co., CA. to here in ABURN, in 1996 when I retired.
Would love to have your information on Wm. Clarence SERATT's family. My info. on your "branch" from Wm. & Minerva E. (LANE) SERATT is pretty skimpy.

I just found material about Susan Watts (ID: 11288) [john15 FG 431] and her parents Holland Watts and Salatha Smith on the "WorldConnect Project" web page, and I am interested in determining the source of information if indeed you are the one who submitted the data. The page was entitled "Part of: Sarratt/Sarrett/Surratt Families of America (SFA)".
I am interested in the Watts family since my mother, Susan Catherine Rhoades was the daughter of John Earl Rhoades who was the son of Thomas Rhoades (Rhodes) and Susan Watts, [john15 FG 430] the daughter of Holland Watts and Salatha Smith.
There is a family story of having Cherokee lineage so that aspect of the Watts family is of considerable interest to me. I am also quite interested in knowing the parents of both Holland Watts and Salatha Smith if that is information you might have.

Regarding my father, John Franklin Seratte, you have his birthplace as Mayes Co. It is McClain Co. Also, you show my mother's name as Marie Walker. It is Jewel Marie Walker - she uses "Jewel". Also, my husband's name is Plummer, not Plumber. Also, the town is Pauls Valley, not Paul's Valley.
Please correct these errors. Thank you.
