Meredith Ussery and Jane Watson Information provided by Earl S. Chambers
Addition information provided by J.T. Ussery --See Laurens Co, GA for more information on this family.
Meredith Ussery was born in NC about 1790 and died in Laurens Co., GA in 1868. Evidence reveals that his parents were Thomas Ussery (d. 1821 Laurens Co) and Elizabeth (d. 1820 Laurens Co.) See Will and Land Records in Laurens Co., GA.
It has been written that Thomas had a brother, name unknown at this time, who was married to Sally. They had the following children: Lydia, Catherine, Milly & John. Milly married Elias Hutto. Both Milly and John are listed on the Land Deeds of Elizabeth. More research is needed on this family.
On March 6, 1817 Meredith married Jane Watson. Three years later in 1820 Meredith Ussery drew, from the lottery, land in Watson's 6-20 of Appling Co. and in Watson's 287-8 in Irwin Co. He is listed in the Laurens Co. 1830, 1840 and 1850 Federal Census. As his wife Jane was not listed in the 1850 Census, it is presumed she was no longer living. It is interesting to note that all of his children are still living with him when the 1850 census was taken.
