I am seeking any information on JOHN SURRATT (aka Seret, Serret, Searett, et. al.) born circa 1782 NC who is listed in the census for Buncombe Co as early as 1830 (possibly earlier) and as late as 1850 in that part of Buncombe Co that became Madison Co NC. I am not a Surrett researcher but I have noticed that this JOHN SURRATT is always living near (or next door) to my TREADWAY ascendants in NC. Also, a Thomas Serrett (b c 1800-1810) migrated to Sullivan Co TN by 1830 and lived near my TREADWAY's in that location. My Treadway's married into the Worley's of TN and NC, as did the Surratt's. I am trying to determine what connection John Surratt has to my 4th great grandfather Treadway (whose parentage has not been proved.) If anyone recognizes any connection in these names, please contact me. Thank you.
