Do you have anything on Winnie's husband in 1870? I have a copy of the 1850 census you were talking of. I have the Sarah, who if I'm correct, could be Winnie's mother on the 1880 Pontotoc census. Her name is listed as Sarah J. Lard with her daughters Sarah J. (age 21), Callie (age 18), Cordelia (age 14), and Ellen (age 9). There is no distinction on the last names (Lard) is ditto on each of the girls, but the first three girls were Surratt. Cordelia was my Great Grandmother. I have a copy of her marriage bond and it says Surratt. I also have Ellen's marriage bond and she is listed as Ellen Lard. I know this is my line, but the thing is connecting this 1880 census with the John and Sarah Surratt on the 1860 census. The daughter, Sarah (age 2) on the 1860 census could very well be the daughter, Sarah J. (age 21) on the 1880 census and it appears they are living next to Wm Surratt (age 22?) on the 1880 census. This census is almost illegible. I have tried and tried to find them on the 1870 census, but no luck. I'm sure that census could make the connection. If you have anything that could help make this connection, please let me know. Thanks, David
