Bounded by Scott Co. on the North; Bourbon Co. on the Northeast; Clark Co. on the East; Madison Co. on the South; Jessamine Co. onthe Southwest; with Woodford Co. on the West.

|Family Story: [REF:#114]||
Family story is that during civil war supplies came to area by boat and that
John Seratt left the house to get money to
buy supplies next day and never returned. Later in spring when planting corn body
was found minus leg. Later the leg was found and buried.|
John Seratt was in Washington co., AR on 1850 census, his occupation was listed as "Bell maker".
He was also 1860 Census for Washington Co., AR.
Supposedly they traveled a lot because of his occupation. John Seratt was on 1840 census in Macon Co., MO and married second wife Nancy Ann Lane in 1846 in Adair Co., MO.
John15, SERATT's "Silver Mine"
The area of Winslow, [Washington Co.] AR still tells a story of John Seratt and a silver mine in the mountains. The story is John found a silver mine in the mountains during the civil war and his son's made some bullets and took them to war. Someone they fought with was a silversmith and he told them it was pure silver. After the war he returned with the Serat boys and they minted their own coins. When the government agents came to the area they left before they found them. People still look for the mine.
One of the old timers named Cheston Seratt (1915-2001) said his grandmother Susan (Cravens) SERATT (1851-1933) told him she saw the boys throw the press in the creek before they left. [REF:#114] Jan. 1999
I was looking at the history of the Seratt Mine,
I grew up on the place where John,15 SERATT lived, [Winslow, Washington Co., AR.]
there was an old shop
there and we always played with the
lava rocks that were cast aside after the silver was melted out of it, I see where his first wife
was a RIDENOURE and that happens to be my maiden name, I have always
heard stories about the mine,
and I can remember so many people comming around with bulldozers and all sorts of instruments trying
to find the mine, one story I heard was that it took John,15 SERATT
about half a day to load his mule go to the mine and fill his bags with silver and come back home and
he used to hide coins in nail kegs and bury them,
one story I heard his daughter Polly SERATT was the age of my great grandmother
and was going to show her where the mine was but my great grandmother (Amanda Arnold) said she had to hurry and get home.
I've heard many more stories but I don't know how true any of them are, my brother and nephew live on
the place where all of this was supposed to have happened. [REF:#003] Oct. 2008
John15, SERATT a "Native American?"
According to eastern Cherokee applications John was Indian but didn't claim it. Nancy Seratt Lane, John's oldest daughter, said her grandmother Susannah Miller Serat was "Shore a Cherokee Indian and she couldn 't talk plain". All information about John came from the Cherokee records except the census records. Also have newspaper clipping about the counterfeit money in file. John's daughter Nancy by Deliah Ridenhour married Samuel P. Lane brother to second wife. Nancy. They lived in the same area as John and Nancy, Also brother Joseph lived nearby. On 1860 census Polly Ann Poor was listed as Mary. Polly was a nickname for Mary in the 1800's. Polly's death certificate listed John as father. I also have George, William and Samuel's pension records for civil war.
John15, SERATT's "Grave Site?"
It is believed that John SERAT is buried in an old cemetery back in the mountains.
The old gravel path was closed and overgrown 10 years ago and the only way in was to walk. Clarence Seratt (1908-1998) was very old then and he wasn't able to walk the three miles to show us where it was. The area is still remote and roads unpaved. Everytime I take someone new to the area I marvel at how it must have looked 150 years ago when John SERAT lived there.

ARKANSAS TERRITORY and STATEHOOD|
Arkansas was part of the Louisiana District (1804-05), the Louisiana Territory (1805-12), and the Missouri Territory (1812- 19) before being constituted, in 1819, as the Arkansas Territory, which also included part of present-day Oklahoma. Arkansas Post was the capital from 1819 to 1821, when Little Rock was made the capital. Settlement of Arkansas was slow until the later 1820s, when the CHEROKEE and CHOCTAW Indians (who had become embroiled in disputes with whites after being moved to Arkansas by the federal government) were removed from the territory. By 1835 Arkansas had 50,000 white inhabitants, and on June 15, 1836, it entered the Union as the 25th state. Black slaves supplied most of the labor for the productive cotton plantations of eastern and southern Arkansas; in 1860 Arkansas had about 111,000 black inhabitants, who constituted more than one-quarter of the total population.

The Civil War and Reconstruction in Arkansas|
On the eve of the CIVIL WAR, Arkansas was almost equally divided between secessionists (mainly associated with cotton production) and antisecessionists (largely small farmers of the northwestern part of the state). In March 1861, a state convention voted against leaving the Union, but in May 1861, a month after the Civil War had begun, the convention voted for secession and Arkansas ceeded to the:
CONFEDERATE STATES OF AMERICA (CSA).
On 06 March 1862, Union troops (USA) won a bloody battle at Pea Ridge (Elkhorn Tavern) Benton Co., AR., which resulted in (USA) control of Missouri.
USA - Killed 283, Wounded 972, Missing or Captured 174
CSA - Killed 1m100, Wounded 2,500, Missing or Captured 1,600
CSA Brig-General McCULLOCH, was killed.
CSA Brig-General McINTOSH, was killed.
By early 1864 Confederate (CSA) forces were confined to southern Arkansas, where they made the town of Washington (Hempstead Co.) the new state capital. A Union regime administered most of Arkansas from Little Rock, AR.
The war ended in 1865, but during 1866-67 former secessionists controlled the state legislature and passed several measures restricting the rights of the recently emancipated blacks. As a result, Arkansas was placed under federal military rule in 1867. The state was readmitted to the Union in mid-1868, after a new constitution had been ratified. During 1868-74 Republicans controlled the state government; the period was marked by a violent clash over the outcome of the 1872 election for the governor. Two Republicans, ELISHA BAXTER and JOSEPH BROOKS, claimed victory in the close contest, and partisans of the candidates engaged in gun battles in 1874 until President ULYSSES S. GRANT intervened to help restore order; ELISHA BAXTER was declared governor. In elections later in 1874 the Democrats regained control of the state government.

during the Civil War, about 1861, Crawford Co., AR. She [REF: #165]
also reports that Widows Pension was filed by Mrs. NANCY A. (LANE) SERAT.
Another Family story (2nd) by [REF:#114] is that during civil war supplies came to area by boat and that John Seratt left the house to get money to buy supplies next day and never returned. Later in spring when planting corn body was found minus a leg. Later the leg was found and buried. It is believed that John SERAT is buried in an old cemetery back in the mountains.
A (3rd) belief is All though no record has been found that JERMIAH SERAT, ever servered in the Civil War. A record shows that on 04 Jul. 1878, (age 34yrs) living at P.O. Summit Home, Marion Co. AR. 72677 made application for "Bounty and Back Pay" of his dec'd brother CALVEN SERAT; Claim was disallowed, because was paid to his father JOHN SERAT on 13 Apr. 1864.
