Hi Paul. Just a note to let you know I have group sheets for all the family except my grandparents and will probably have to go to court house and look for them in state records.
Since my father had one daughter and most of my brothers had girls do you want me to sent you sheets from their families.
As a side note my Father always told us that Mary Surratt of the Lincoln Assination Conspiracy was one of our kinfolks.
Well that's it for now and will start putting all this in the computer when I find all I can on my grandparents.

Hi Paul:
I talked with you once before about my Sarrett line. I find a few things that we don't agree on and I wanted to get them straightend out.
On William Harmon/Harper Sarrett's family [FG 461 I have a different list of children and places of burial. I have both William and Eugenia buried at the James Lee/John Kelly Family Cemetery with several of their children. I notice that you have a later date of burial than death on a couple of these and wondered if you had found where they had been moved. If so I would like to make the correction in my book.
I base my information on a cemetery book my sister located for me in Carthage Texas on the James Lee/John Kelly Family Cemetery [Old Brown - Lee Cem] in Uticia], Hinds Co. Mississippi. It has the following Sarretts listed:
Sarrett, William H. b. 05 Aug 1849 d. 02 Nov. 1892
Sarrett, Eugenia Folkes, w/o W. H. b. 3 Dec. 1852 d. 13 Jul 1930
Sarrett, Bennie Terrell, d/o W. H. & E. F. b. 06 Jan 1885 d. 13 Feb 1885
Sarrett, Harmon Folkes, s/o W. H. & E. F. b. 15 Feb 1878 d. 23 Mar 1879
Sarrett, Pattie E., d/o W. H. & E. F. b. 27 May 1892 d. 25 Jun 1893
Sarrett, H. J. b. not given d. 6 Oct 1908
Sarrett, Frances Brown, w/o H. J., d/o W. & M. Brown b. 20 dec. 1829 d. 15 Dec. 1891
Whitaker, Susan Theresa (Sarrett), w/o A.N., d/o H. J. and F. Sarrett b. 26 Oct 1851 d. 14 Feb. 1891
Sarrett, Salena Elizabeth, d/o H. J. & Frances b. 30 Jan 1854 d. 23 Jun 1855
Sarrett, Johnnie B., s/o H. J. & Frances b. 9 Feb. 1867 D. 17 Sept 1881
You have John B. bur. 20 Feb.1892 Utica Cem.? and Susannah Teresa bur. 18 Feb. 1892 were they moved?
     Ans: Nope!, just slip of finger 1891 not 1892
You have Selena Elizabeth bur. 25 Jun 1855 Utica Cem., was she moved? You have William Harmon/Harper bur. 2 Nov. 1892 Utica Cem., was he moved?
     Ans: See Above!
And you did not show Bennie Terrell, Harmon Folkes and Pattie E. If the others were moved why were these 3 not moved?
     Ans: Did't show, because they were never in a Census! See my Notes with this family!
I still don't know whether William was really William Harmon or William Harper. He had a son Harmon and he had a son William Harper who went by Harper. I have a copy of a letter by Harper Sarrett that mentions some additional siblings. It is as follows:
"Jackson, Miss. July 23, 1930
Dear Henry:
I got your address from Harmon Benton when I saw him last, which was about the middle of July, 1928. Have been thinking of writing you ever since, but just kept putting it off from time to time. It has been a long, long time since I saw ou and I have often thought of and wondered what you were doing. I have been telegraphing for the last thirty years. Have been working for the people I am no employed by since 1918--12 years--Am married and have one child, a girl who will be 16 years old on September 6. Her name is Ruth and she's a moon-fixer.
Sister Adria is now Mrs. C.W. Hazlip and lives near Natchez. Ethel is Mrs. C.K. Leighton and Mable is Mrs. D. S. Nason and lives at Utica with Ethel. Fannie is Mrs. F.S. Eastburn and lives just outside of Memphis, Tenn. Orren lives here in Jackson. Vaughan died on July 26, 1928. Mama died on July 13 this year. Auntie and Uncle Tom Lee are living at the same old place in Utica. Aunt Mary and Uncle Ed Ford were at Winnfield, La., the last I heard from them............................... Your cousin,
W.H. Sarrett,
Harper Sarrett (signed)
Home address 209 Rose Street
Uncle Charlie lives in Vicksburg.

I haven't really had time to research since I last emailed you, but had located this information and thought I would send in on so we could straighten out the burial sites and William's family.

Hi Paul:
It's been an long time since I've contacted you or worked on my genealogy. We took my mother on a trip back to southern Missouri to visit all the old home sites and discovered a Sarrett relative I didn't know about. Thought you would be interested so here it is.

Harman Jackson Sarrett's daughter Susan Teresa who married Aaron Newman Whitaker had another daughter we didn't know about. Her name is Carrie and she was born 22 Feb. 1887 in Port Gibson, MS. The only record I can find of a Carrie Whitaker in the 1900 census that might work shows Carrie C. Whitaker born abt 1887 in MS is living as a boarder with William W. Buetow in Police Jury Ward 4 East Baton Rouge, LA. I have not checked for 1910 or 1920 yet. She was married to William Hill and I did find her in the 1930 census for Mill Spring, Wayne, MO

I met with her daughter Katherine (who has never married) and she gave me the information I have. She had a booklet printed called: "THIS IS MY STORY AND I'M STICKIN' TO IT" published in 2002, and it tells mainly memories but a little genealogy. She wrote this to mark her 91st birthday. The genealogy states that Carrie was born in Port Gibson, Mississippi, on February 22, 1887 to Susan Surrett Whitaker and Aaron Newman Whitaker. She died on December 19, 1964. Katherine McKenzie Hill was born in Augusta, Georgia, on October 5, 1911, to Carrie Charlotte Whitaker Hill and William Hill. William was born in Glasgow, Scotland, around 1872, to Katherine McKenzie Hill and David Hill, and came to the United States as a young man. He worked for the railroad in Augusta, Georgia, for a number of years before moving to Otter Creek. He died in 1936. He mentions a older sister Susie also born in Augusta. Younger brother David born in Turpin Hill, Georgia. She states that she didn't know this until she read his obituary so I'm not sure if this is correct. She also mentions an older brother Bill who was her half-brother. She doesn't know where he was born and doesn't mention which parent was his full parent. She also mention a boy named Lamar. I haven't found my notes yet, so I can't tell you for sure, but I believe she said this was her sister Susan's boy.
Have a nice day. Carol Brentlinger, E-Mail: [email protected] (New Address)

Hi Paul:
It's been a long time since I've talked with you and I have a new email address since that time. I sent you information on a letter I had from William Harper Sarrett addressed to Henry.
I neglected to tell you the Henry was Elam Henry Newsom son of Martha Emma Sarrett and Elam Hawes Newsom. Elam Henry Newsom was my grandfather.

In 2004 we made a trip back to southern Missouri with my mother visiting the old home sites. While there we meet a lady by the name of Katherine McKenzie Hill. She was very sweet and gave me a copy of her publication called "This is My Story and I'm Stickin' To It". In this publication she talks about her family history. She was the daughter of William Hill and Carrie Whitaker.
Carrie Charlotte was born 22 Feb 1887 Port Gibson, MS and died 19 Dec 1964. She was the daughter of Aaron Newman Whitaker and Susan Teresa Sarrett.
When we returned home I began research to check out the information we had been given, since I had not heard of Carrie. Of course the 1880 census does not list her as she wasn't born until 1887.
Her mother had passed away by the 1900 census and I haven't located when her father passed away. I did locate a Carrie C. Whitaker in the Police Jury Ward of East Baton Rouge, Louisiana in the 1900 census. Her estimated birth date was 1887. Katherine was born 5 Oct 1911 in Augusta, GA and they moved to Missouri around 1917. I located Carrie and Wm. Hill in the 1930 census in Mill Spring, Wayne, MO.
Carrie had one sister and one brother Susie and David. Missouri's online death certificates only go up to 1958 at this time so I haven't checked Carrie's death certificate. Though I would pass this information on.

  4th E-Mail: Date: Saturday, June 13, 2009 at 17:15 PMTime

Just realized you did not have the all of the information for Martha Emma Sarrett and Elam Hawes Newsom's family.
Elam Hawes Newsom's mother was Catherine Chambers
Elam and Martha had three children:
     1. Sue Kate Newsom b.4 Aug 1874 Utica, Hinds, MS; d. 28 May 1918; m. 18 Jan 1903 John Burnett Ford Benton; parents William H. Benton and Martie Jett
     2. Joseph Sarrett Newsom b. 17 Jun 1876 Tomastown, Leave, MS ?; d. 29 Feb 1960, Hamilton, Greenwood, KS; bur. Eureka Cem., Eureka, Greenwood, KS; m. 18 Jan 1903 Batesville, Butler, MO, Maggie Wheeler 2nd Lulu L. Puckett
     3. Elam Henry Newsom b. 17 Dec. 1878 Utica, Hinds, MS; d. 14 Jul 1955, Poplar Bluff, Butler, MO; bur. Shaine Memorial Cem., Ash Hill, Butler, MO; m. 28 Oct 1906 Batesville, Butler, MO, Elva Guess' parents Wiley Allen Guess and Georgianna Cook
After Elam's death Martha married William Harman Benton; b 1843 MS; m. 11 Sept 1884 Hinds Co., MS
William and Emma had two children:
1. Ezra Jake Benton b. 19 Jan 1889, Rocky Springs, MS; d. 6 Apr 1944, Beaumont, Jefferson, TX; m. ? Sally
2. Benjamin Harman Benton b. Aug 1885 MS
You have an Althea E. listed under the Newsom side but census records show an approximate birth date of 1882 and she is listed as a Benton. I know she could have been born in 1880 or 1881 and that they could have listed the wrong last name, but I believe that William Harman might have been married before Emma. If so Althea might have been his daughter by his first wife since he and Emma didn't marry until 1884. In a letter I have from Burnett Benton he mentions Althea but doesn't remember her name.
I hope I haven't rambled on to long and if I can help with anything else please let me know.,br> Thanks, Carol Brentlinger, E-Mail: [email protected]

I was just wanting to make some corrections on your website. My mother is Janice Elizabeth (Sarrett) PITTS,
daughter of Jessie Harris Burt Sarret, Sr. and Viola Carilla Hand. The parents of Jessie Harris Burt Sarrett are James Edgar Sarrett and Johnny Falkner Howard. The parents of James Edgar Sarrett are Harmon Jackson Sarrett and Frances Brown.
I am just giving you this information to guide you to how I am related. My mother and I were looking over the SFA website and noticed that there were mistakes that she remembers as a child. We just wanted to make some corrections.
These would be listed under the children of Jessie Harris Burt Sarrett.

None of this is written in "Concrete", we will change things that in the absence of absolute proof, circumstantial evidence, both legally and genealogically, has been allowed and the conclusion will be conceded when no other proof of the opposite is provided, which is both logical and reasonable and not opposed by any other evidence.

LOL...I know. My Uncle Harris was extremely close to us. Harris was in a nursing home up until the day of his death and my mother went every week, sometimes twice a week to make sure he had everything he needed and to wash his clothes. Harris was a huge part of my life for as far back as I can remember. I will share with you what I know.
Jessie Harris Burt Sarrett, Sr. was in Germany during the 1920 census and below is who I believe is Jessie and Viola in the 1930 census. If you look at the census record itself, you will see that Jena is actually Jessie. This was a mistake by the person who transcribed the record. Also, my mother said that her mother Viola was called "Olla" by Jessie and other members of the family. Andrey on this record is Audrey and James is also listed.
I believe that Uncle Johnny being born in December 1929 prevented him from being mentioned in the census because he was not born at the actual time of the census taking. Let me know what you think here.
1930 United States Federal Census Home in 1930: Jackson, Madison, Tennessee Jena Sarrett 26 Ola Sarrett 26 Andrey Sarrett 3 4/12 James Sarrett 1 4/12
Debra L. PITTS, E-Mail: [email protected]
I agree, when you look ant the 1930 Census, pg3a, Family Visit: 61 it's clear that Jena is actualy "Jesse" and Ola is actualy "Vola" I made the "correction" on Census search engine.
The reason Johnny Monroe SARRETT is not listed, is because he was not born until Dec 29, 1930 the Enumberator took this info. on Apr 3rd, 1930. This also why Andrey Louise SARRETT, was still listed in this census she died on her 4th Birthday May 1st 1930, 27 days after this Census. Which brings up another correction, why isn't Audrey death location in Jackson City, Madison Co., TN. NOT Jackson, Hinds Co., MS? and was her body taken back to Cedar Lawn Cemetery, Hinds Co., MS.? What was the "Cause of Death" for this 4 year little Girl?
You mentioned that the reason your Grandfater Jesse, is NOT listed in the US 1920 Census, was because he was in Germany, was he in the Army?, I can't find him in the First World War I, Registration Cards of 1917 & 1918, he would have only been 15 & 16yrs old, but would have been age 18yrs in the 1920 Census, what Branch, Unit was he in? WWI War was declared on Apr 2, 1917 and the Peace Treaty of Versailles, Paris, concluded in Jun 1919
If you have photos of Gravesite Lakewood Cemetery, we work with, and would like to place Memorial & Headstone photos and this site.
If you have any Photos of these early SARRETT, we woud like to place on our Profile. ...prs

 Hello Paul
Sorry it took me a while to get back to you .Here is some of the information I have on the family. This can be found by going to ...
When you enter the site go to links then to research help... go to the section under mississippi confederate graves registry. My findings are that HJ Sarrett was a first sargent. company b., 1st batt. Ms cavalry state troops .
This would be considered a state militia unit . He enlisted Sept. 7 1864 and was discharged March 15 1865. I didn't see this anywhere in your information and thought it would be of interest to you.
I am planning to go to Utica soon and try to find his grave marker.If I do find it I will take a picture and send you a copy.
As for my great grandfather Fred Whitaker Lee , his actual parents were Aaron Newman Whitaker and Susan Theresa Sarrett . She died within 2 weeks after his birth. The story we have always heard was his father abandoned him shortly soon after that . At that point Susans sister Francis Maria and her husband Daniel Thomas Lee adopted him and took in 2 sisters Lena (Linnie) Whitaker and Mary Whitaker.
He later married my great grandmother Gladys Sarrett.
She was the daughter of James Edgar Sarrett and Frances Johnson.... and yes they were first cousins. Not a lot of forks in the family tree there.
I do have some death dates and places of burial that would complete some of your empty spots. Just let me know what info you want. I will send you some more info on that , as well as some pictures of Fred and Gladys as soon as I get my scanner working
I have some old reciepts and checks from the hotel that Daniel Lee and his wife Maria (Sarrett) Lee ran in Utica back in the early 1900's . I have found a box of them at my mothers house and would love for you to have some of the originals. All the records I have on her she goes by M.E. Lee or Maria Lee. I will send the other info soon.
Thanks for getting back to me.

Hi Paul, I want to thank you for your work in your research of the "Sarrett" family. I am the granddaughter of Fannie Lee Sarrett (Shannie) who married Mr. Benson May Russell around 1926. He was 20 years older than she and was at that time a Senator from the State of Mississippi,from the Eighth Senatorial District.
I have been looking for information on my Great Grandparents, which Mr. James Edward Sarrett would be my Great Grandfather. Until now, I never knew where he was born or buried. Now, I do. Little did I know he had a second wife. A. Johnnie Faulkner Howard. She is also buried in the same Cemetery as James, Cedartown <---Wrong!! "Cedar Lawn" Cemetery! I read where they had three children as a result of this marraige. Now, I am curious. Who were these children and where is the first Mrs. Sarrett buried. I would believe that the first wife would have been my Grandmothers mother. Can you please help me?
My mother, Mary Belle Russell Sistrunk, who passed away in March of this year and my father are fourth cousins. Needless to say it is confusing especially now that I see the second Mrs. Sarrett's mother was a father and my mother are both kin to Renfro's in and around Monticello Mississippi!
In fact, they are so double kinned that I can hardly keep up with who is who. It gets so confusing! Thank you for your time. Any information is greatly appreciated. I will leave with this bit of information, Mr. Sarrett's first wife, I believe was a Johnson. My grandmother was raised by her Aunt Belle Johnson Rogers because Mrs.Sarrett passed away as a result of having Fannie Lee (Shannie). Again Thank You...
