Records in North Carolina

  • Petition from Anson County in 1777 for dividing County. Among signers John USSERY, Thomas USSERY, Peter USSERY, and William USSERY. [In 1770 William USSERY, SR., his sons Welcome and Thomas Ussery, and his brother John Ussery, signed a petition to the Governor, Council and Assembly by Inhabitants of Anson County against the court at Salisbury, saying that they spent of necessity much gold and silver there which finds its way to Virginia and South Carolina from the Province of North Carolina; asks that a court at Campbellton be established for Anson, Orange and Cumberland Counties].
  • In 1788, Welcome, Peter, David Ussery and James Ussery, as well as brother-in-law Isaac Armstrong, petitioned the General Assembly to allow part of the inhabitants of Montgomery county to be annexed by the neighboring county of Richmond. It seems that many of Montgomery's citizens were having to travel some forty miles, as well as cross the PeeDee River which was sometimes impassable, in order to travel to court. They asked that the land be annexed from Coleson's ferry landing on PeeDee river direct to the head of Drowning Creek and all that part of Montgomery County east of said line. On Nov 10, 1788 the House of Commons passed a bill allowing Richmond County to annex that portion of Montgomery. JAMES USSERY was chosen as one of the Commissioners to run the dividing line.
