JOSEPH, 1 SARRATT the American progenitor, was believed to have
been born about c1675, and possibly from France, the exact location
is Unknown; He died prior to 18 Jan. 1715, at the age of 40 years,
in Prince George's County, Maryland; Buried location Unknown; Married
date unknown, to Miss KATHRINE/KATHARINE Unknown; b. c1675; d.
Unknown; She was the Daughter of Unknown Parents; It is believed that
they had a least Three [REF: #90 Pg17] Children born to this Union; One
year and Nine months after the death of her first husband JOSEPH, 1
SARRATT, she married [REF: #90 Pg17] Date Unknown, prior to 16 Oct. 1716,
in Prince George's Co., MD. to WILLIAM LEWIS, No more information.
1 1st. Dau: SUSANNA SARRATT; b. c1700 m. Henry DICKERSON Liv MD
2 1st. Son: SAMUEL, 1 SARRATT; b. c1708 m. Ann Unknown Liv NC
3 2nd. Son: JOSEPH, 2 SARRATT; b. c1710 m. Mary Unknown Liv MD
Prince George's County, Maryland was formed on 03 Oct. 1695, from
parts of Charles and Calvert Counties. Part of it was removed in 1748,
when Frederick County was formed. It has been recorded that when this
County was organized there were some 658 Taxables in the new County,
so it is estimated there were between 1,600 to 1,700 people living
here. The JOSEPH, 1 SARRATT family was probably among these residents.
[REF: #90, pg2]
He was 17 years of age, when in 1692, the Providence of Maryland,
by action of the General Assembly and the Church of England, established
two Parishes. The first was St. Paul's Parish, which had been
in Calvert County and the Piscatawy Parish, which had been in Charles
County. After 1724 the Piscatawy Parish, became the King George's
Parish.
Streams were the main arteries of early Maryland. Good sized seagoing
vessels could sail Chesapeake Bay and its rivers far inland. The
Potomac, Patuxent, and the Choptank where three which allowed ships
to tie up at the door of a planter, and few records were kept of these
sailings or of the lists of passengers or crew.
It is easy to speculate JOSEPH,1 SARRATT, (1675-1715) stepped ashore
some place in Maryland, in the manner described above, because no
other record has been found of his arrival to the New World. If he
came from another Colony, Europe or England as yet no record has been
found. The search is still on.
The first record found of the first SARRATT in America was on
18 Jan. 1715, in Prince George's County, Maryland:
KATHRINE SARRAT,
SAMUEL WEIGHEL, and
EVAN JONES all
of the County of Prince George, Providence of Maryland, put up a Bond
at the Court of Said County of 60 pounds Sterling, in order to have
KATHRINE SARRAT to be named Administratix of the goods and chattels
of JOSEPH SARRAT, dec'd...."
It is assumed that KATHRINE (Unknown) SARRAT , was his wife, since
the consent of wives was always obtained in Maryland in the sale of
property, and the welfare of women and their rights to estates was
considered beneficial to the community.
KATHERINE (Unknown) SARRAT was ordered by the court to present an
Inventory before the 16th. day of March, 1715 in order to pay
JOSEPH,1 SARRAT'S debts and distribute his estate.
The following is a estimate the ages of their children at the time
of their fathers death:
1 1st. Dau: SUSANNA SARRATT; age 15
2 1st. Son: SAMUEL, 1 SARRATT; age 7 <-----Branch ..prs)
3 2nd. Son: JOSEPH, 2 SARRATT; age 5
No land records have been found for JOSEPH, 1 SARRAT, property in
the Prince George's County, but we know he was a large farmer, because
of his Inventory presented to the court on 24 Feb. 1715, listed
the following:
515 lbs. of tobacco.
3 Barrels of "Indean corne"
1 Heifer
1 Calf
1 Old horse
1 Mare & Colt
Some old Puter
1 Churn
Some Barrles
1 Grind Stone
1 Spinning Wheel
Some Working Tools
Some Household Furniture
1 Old Trunk
2 Chests
1 Bed
1 Table
4 Chairs
On 16 Oct. 1716, an additional Inventory was presented to the Court
by now the Mrs. KATHRINE (Unknown) SARRAT LEWIS. Wife of William LEWIS.
This new Inventory consisted of the following:
1 Draft Horse
1 Cart
1 Saddle, Collar, & Harness
1 Pair of Old Trucks.
JOSEPH,1 SARRAT'S estate was not settled until 03 May, 1717, some
2 years and 3 months after his death in Jan. of 1715. This time is
quite unusual but no explanation has been found to date.
Also some of the St. Paul parish officers were listed in the estate
settlement of JOSEPH SARRAT. - -
Dr. FREDERICK CLAUDIUS was paid 414 pounds of tobacco
(maybe for attending Joseph SARRAT in his final illness?) and
JOSHUA CECELL, Clerk of the Court, was paid for his services.
The Maryland Quick Rent (Taxes) lists, changed between 1671 and
1715, so no record can be found of JOSEPH, 1 SARRAT, ever paid rent
to the Lord Proprietor. In addition the JOSEPH, 1 SARRAT'S was reported
[REF: #90 Pg3] that they lived in the "Mattapany Hundred" area , at that
time in Calvert County, which was reformed as part of Prince George's
Co., in 1696. Unfortunately the early records of Calvert County were
lost in a Courthouse fire.
(Quick Rents are the same as Taxes; Lord BALTIMORE issued
patents to land which conveyed title to the owner. The owner could
sell it or lease it or leave it to his heirs, but he was always subject
to an annual "Quick Rent" fee for the use of the property....prs.)
When Mattapany Hundred (Civil Section) was reformed in to Prince George's
County, the parish of St. Paul and the worshipers built a Chapel,
when Captain RICHARD BRIGHTWELL donated about 3 acres from his
tract called "Poplar Hill" in 1704. This was in the neighborhood of
later identifiable SARRATT property.
In 1733, Son Joseph, 2 Jr. SARRAT, age 23 paid Taxes on property
in "Mattapany Hundred" taken by John LAWSON, Constable. [REF: 90, pg5]

Stephen Giles Smith
"Stephen Giles Smith's joviality and good nature are well remembered by the citizens of Parks. His favorite by word was an inoffensive but emphatic "By The By!" Friends still tell of his encounter with newly formed traffic laws when road building was just emerging back in earlier times.
Steve liked to walk in the middle of the road and when admonished of his infraction of the new rules, he replied, "I pay my road taxes like everybody else and By The By, I'm taking my part right down the middle!" He departed as he had come, right down the middle of the road, much to the delight of onlookers.
Stephen Giles Smith (Steve), son of James Smith and Rachel Pettit (1860-1933) dau/o Giles Pettit of Blackfork Twp. Giles Pettit, b. in Spartanburg, S.C. in 1825, moved to Benton Co., AL in 1850, then to Calhoun Co., AL by 1860 at Peaks Hill. Then by 1880 he and his wife, Mary J. Poole came to Blackfork Community. Their childen were listed as Monroe Jackson Pettit, Lucinda Pettit, Sarah Jane Pettit who md. John Welch. Rachel L.E. Pettit who first md. James Smith, then after James Smith d. in 1886(?), Rachael md. Amzi Love Watkins of Harvey who had lost his wife leaving him with a son Walter (1880-1943) about Steve's age.
