Maj. Richard Philip Sasnett

1Judge Frank L. Little, Sasnett Family Records Book, Elizabeth deParry, 4748 Aberdeen Dr, Ann Arbor, MI 48103. Written about 1910. "I have always regretted that I did not know my wife's father Mr. Richard Philip Sasnett, who died in 1851, just eight years before I became by marriage an inmate of his family.  His portrait shows him to have been a gentleman of large mould and of splendid physique, with a well shaped intellectual head, and men who were his intimate friends especially Col. Chas. W. DuBose and Major Wm. E. Budd have assured me he was a man of distinguished presence, firm address, excellent culture, and decided intellectuality. His education was obtained in the plain schools around him until he was advanced enough to go to Dr. Carlyle P. Bemans celebrated school in Mount Zion. Afterwards he spent three years in Virginia with Dr. Piper who moved to Transylvania University in Kentucky, where he went with him. He took a leading interest in the agriculture of Hancock County and when 25 years old was sent from his county to the Legislature but he refused to cultivate any political aspirations afterwards. Upon the breaking out of the Seminole War he enlisted, holding the rank of Lieutenant and Adjutant in his battallion in which capacity he served until the war ended. His exposures in this service brought on a violent attack of sickness from which he came near loosing his life, being detained several weeks in Macon, GA. for medical treatment. His health was never completely restored after this its impairment continuing until his death which occurred on the 23rd day of May 1851.

My principal impressions of my wife's dear father were obtained from his brother Dr. William J. Sasnett. Between these brothers there must have subsisted the very warmest devotion and love. Dr. Sasnett spoke of him always as a man of large intelligence, public spirit, the most noble and generous impulses, a charming companion among friends and especially in his family relation, and a pronounced christian character. This estimate, was fully shared by those who knew him and who have spoken to me about him. When I became acquainted with his sister Mrs. Absolem Harris in her home in LaGrange, GA. in 1859, she said to me "Wm. Little, you ought to have known my brother Richard; he was one of the noblest men that ever lived."

Inscription on his tombstone, "In 1842 he embraced the religion of Christ, and became a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. ... Though leaving a wife and five interesting children, he was resigned and happy, gloriously affirming with his dying breath the confidence of his hope in Heaven."."

Joseph Richard Sasnett

1Judge Frank L. Little, Sasnett Family Records Book, Elizabeth deParry, 4748 Aberdeen Dr, Ann Arbor, MI 48103. Written about 1910. "Joseph Richard Sasnett was the youngest, of the children of Richard P. and Mary Ann Sasnett. His education was obtained in the Sparta Male and Female Academy when it stood on the present site of John D. Walker's residence. Before he was twenty-one years old he married Julia F. Adams daughter of John F. Adams of Putman county. She was the only sister of William P. Sasnett's wife. He served several years in the Terrell Artillery, commanded by Capt. Edgar G. Dawson. When the war ended he moved on his plantation on Buffalo Creek, in Hancock County, but undertook the, problem of farming under the new and untried conditions of negro freedom. These conditions made successful farming difficult to those who were experienced, but they were attended by much more to those who had just begun their farming career. His experience was attended by fortune, and after a long test he abandoned farming and moved his family near Atlanta and settled at Hapeville, Ga. where he now resides. In the meantime he lost his wife and was married a second time to Miss Anna Stevens of Mount Zion, Ga. From his former marriage there were born the following children: Wm. Rosser Sasnett who lives in Atlanta, Ga. Richard Philip Sasnett (who bears the full name of his Grand-father Sasnett), and now resides in Jackson, Ga. where he is merchant and cashier of the Bank of Jackson. Rebecca Borden Sasnett who married Mr. W. W. Strong and resides in Atlanta, Ga. where her husband is an employee of the Post Office and Julia F. Sasnett who married Mr. Alonza Roan and lives in Hapeville, Ga. and Donothy Harris Sasnett.

By his second marriage the following children were born: Rolen Stevens, Joseph Randolph and Anna Bell Stevens (who were twins) and Lucius Lamar Sasnett all of whom are inte11igent, and promising boys and girls, hard at work in building up their future prospects in life. The death of his second wife was followed by his third marriage to Miss Helen Pitts of Newborn in Newton County, Georgia, by whom he has had no children. She is highly esteemed by all the members of the family who have formed her acquaintance.

Dick Sasnett as he is familiarly known, is a man of splendid personal appearance and has developed into a successful business man as a travelling salesman."
