  • Newspaper, NOV 1983: "As the Federal forces inched their way to Corinth after the battle of Shiloh many skirmishes took place.

    One of those skirmishes occurred on May 21, 1862 at the "Widow Surratt's. The name is usually spelled Sarratt or Surratt.

    In Thomas Duncan's "Recollections," he wrote, "Then later in May came fighting on the Purdy Road three miles north of Corinth at the Old Dickey Field, on the Pas Ridge Road at the Surratt Place on Bridge Creek?"

    Who was the Widow Surratt? I used the spelling which is used in a deed recorded on the Shiloh Road where she lived. Mrs. Surratt's name was Lucinda but she was called Lucy. She was born in Huntsville, Ala. in 1791. His maiden name was Morland sometimes called Moreland.

    Lucy's husband was Jacob Surratt. He was born in 1790 and died in 1844. Lucy died in 1875. Both are buried in Farmington Baptist Church Cemetery.

    The Surratt Farm on the Shiloh Road included the west half of section 29 and the east half of section 39 both in township one, range eight east. Sometime in 1839 Matthew W. Lindsay and his wife, Virginia, for $3,100 sold to Jacob Surratt, the above described land containing 640 acres "more or less." For this Lindsay gave a bond for the title. The receipt of the transfer was acknowledged by the Lindsays.

    Mr. Surratt died before a deed was made to him. However, he left a will by which he bequeathed the land to Lucy Surratt, William W. Surratt, and Samuel B. Surratt. On August 13, 1851, the Lindsays made a sale of the farm to Lucy and the others named with her in Jacob's will. The acreage was just west of where the Minor Road intersects the Shiloh Road. Those who once attended the McGlathery school which stood at the intersection have reason to remember the spot. Another familiar place is southwest of the Minor intersection. That is called Surratt's Pond. It is where the Shiloh road makes a decided curve to the north and is perhaps three miles or less from downtown Corinth.


    In the Feb. 1963 issue of the VFW magazine an account is given of a young William Horsfall of the First Kentucky Volunteer Regiment who was severely wounded between the lines on May 21, 1862 at Corinth. For this, Horsfell was awarded the Medal of Honor. Presumably, this occurred during a skirmish on that date at Widow Surratt's as there was no engagement on that date at Corinth itself on that date. The First Kentucky was a Union regiment.

    Mrs. Marguerite Brice of Corinth is a great-granddaughter of Lucy Moland Surratt."

    --Beulah Price, "Widow Surratt's Civil War Skirmish, The Corinthian, Nov 1983.
    --
    Written on clipping: "This property is now a golf course on Shiloh Rd.
    Shiloh means 'place of peace.'"
