Montgomery Co., NC USGenWeb site



In 1777, William Ussery , his sons WELCOME and THOMAS , and his brother JOHN USSERY , signed a petition to have a new county formed or to have the present
courthouse relocated. The PeeDee River was dividing the county making it very difficult to the inhabitants to travel to the courthouse. As a result of their efforts a new
county was formed and named Montgomery, in honor of General Richard Montgomery, who was a distinguished officer of the Revolution, and who fell fighting her
battles in his heroic attack upon Quebec, 31 December 1775.

In 1779 Montgomery County was formed from Anson County. Unfortunately, the Montgomery County courthouse records suffered through three disastrous fires, the
most destructive occurring in 1835, so the information on the citizens of that county is limited. From what has been researched, it is apparent that William and his family
took a very active role in their community.
