Obediah W. SURRETT was shot & killed by Police!
 "It's been reported that Obediah,2 SURRETT, was killed Aug 1849, at the Cherokee Reservation., NC.
According to family sources that have the documentation to prove it, Obediah SURRETT was not killed on the 'Reservation' but at his home in Henderson Co., NC. Apparently he was abusive to his wife. Mrs. Mary Mae (Allison) SURRETT
The police went to his house to arrest him and he was chopping wood and Obediah threatened the police with the axe and they shot him.
