In Reply to: Re: Surretts of Cleburne Co. Ala. by Inez Bush of 729

Inez -- Saw your message just last night & it caught my eye because of Cisero. I come thru his line, but do not have much info about him. I have in my possession pages from an Ezzell/Surrett Bible. It gives birth, death, & marriage dates of some of these two families (mostly Ezzell's).

Ciceroe Anderson Sanford Surrett & Cynthia Adeline Ezzell were married in Cleburne Co. 23 Nov 1882. The 1880 census for Cleburne Co. lists him as a child with siblings and a widowed mother -- Sarah J. Surrett (age 44). Census shows mother & father born in Georgia, as well as Cisero (18), Henry J. (15), James O. (13), Mary (11), & Arfay Naoma (9). Says a younger sister, Sarah (4), was born in Alabama. I don't know if the father, Cicero, died in Alabama or in Georgia, prior to coming. However, I'm leaning towards Alabama. Are there any printed materials regarding cemeteries in that area?

In the 1870 census of Floyd Co., Geaogia, I found the father, Cicsero (35), and the mother, Sarah J. (34) and their children, Willam R. (13), Francis M. (12), Cicero A. (8), Henry J. (6), James O. (3), and Mary T. (1).

I have also found in DeKalb Co., Georgia, the record of a marriage on 1 May 1854 between a Green Surrets and Sarah Jane Clay.
I don't understand the "Green" Surrets, but feel certain this is Cicero. He could possible be Cicero Green or Green Cicero, or maybe Green is a father or brother, and the recorder put down the wrong name. Any ideas?

I also have record of Sanford Serit marriage to Tabathia Clay. Haven't tied them to my family, but felt like Sanford was a brother to Cicero and Tabathia (Delitha) was a sister to Sarah Jane, especially since the Sanford name appears 2 other times in my family line. Do you have additional information on this?

You mention a Henry Sanford, changed to Henry Washington, is buried in Mt. Creek Cem. Where is this located? You also state that Cisero was in Cedar Town, Ga. What Co. is this located in? Have not been able to find Cicero & Sarah Jane in a 1860 census, but will search for Mt. Creek and Paulding Co. that you mentioned. It is right below Floyd! Have not found any 1850 census' that have helped me find the parents of Cicero or Sarah Jane Clay. Any suggestions?

Hope I haven't confused you too much and that this is of some help. If you have anything to add, I would apprciate hearing from you. You can E-mail me direct at if you like. I look forward to hearing from you.
