Possible Record Problem!
A descendent of this branch states:
"I can find no connections with Cherokee co Ga for Sanford or Cicero either one, nor can I connect the dots that leads me to believe that they are related to Wm Sanford of 1840 Cherokee Co Ga are 1850 Hot Springs Ark. Or Lenney Prater and son John of Cherokee Co Ga. I can never find one page that has Wm. Sanford & Lenney( Prater) Surrett in the same place or the same co. as Sanford & Cicero Surrett."
[Date: Wed, 12 Jul 2000 1:40:45 PM Eastern DT, Amos Surrett (]

"You ask me if I have any evidence as to the parents of Sanford and Cicero that is contrary to your findings Ans No I do not, I have always said The first time you can account for Sanford and Cicero is the marriage license in 1853 and 1854 in Dekalb co Ga. I have no Earthly idea who ther parent were. I talk to all the Surrett in Va and N.C and Tenn and Walker co Ga and OKla none of the place and times have ever check out."
