NameSanford A Petitt, G Uncle
Birth10 Feb 1916, Crix, Rowan Co., Kentucky
Death8 Oct 1983, Rockford, Winnebago Co., Illinois
Much of my information on Sanford's family is from a letter that his daughter Deeda wrote in 1980. In that letter she says Sanford was not given a middle name, only the letter A. His daughter Edna adds that the A is not to be followed by a period, to indicate that it is the whole middle name, rather than an abbreviation for something else.
