Signers of Petition - Regulators
Petition dated 9 October 1769.
"Mr. Speaker and Gen't of the Assembly.
Humbly Showeth:
That the Province in General labour under general grievances, and the western part thereof under particular ones; which we not only see, but very sensibly feel, being crouch'd
beneath our sufferings and not withstanding our sacred privileges, have too long yielded ourselves slaves to remorseless oppression. - Permit us to conceive it to be our inviolable
right to make known our grievances, and to petition for redress as appears in the Bill of Rights pass'd in the reign of King Charles the first, as well as the Act of Settlement of the
Crown of the Revolution. We therefore beg leave at the Act of the Settlement of the Crown of the Revolution. We therefore beg leave to lay before you a specimen thereof that your
compassionate endeavors may tend to the relief of your injured Constituents, whose distressed condition call aloud for aid. The alarming cries of the oppressed possibly may reach
your ears; but without your zeal how they shall ascend the throne - how relentless is the breast without sympathy, the heart that cannot bleed on a view of our calamity; to see
tenderness removed, cruelty stepping in; and all our liberties and privileges invaded and abridg'd (by as it were) domestickes; who are conscious of their guilt and void of remorse. -
O how darling! how relentless whilst impending Judgements loudly threaten and gaze upon them, with every emblem of merited destruction. A few of the many grievances are as
follows, (viz't)


1.    That the poor inhabitants in general are much oppress'd by reason of the disproportionate Taxes, and those of the western Counties in particular; as they are geneally in mean
circumstances.
2.    That no method is prescribed by law for the payment of the taxes of the Western Counties in produce (in lieu of a currency) as in other Counties within this Province to the
Peoples great oppression.
3.    That Lawyers, Clerks, and other petitioners; in place of being obsequious Servants for the Country's use, are become a nuisance, as the business of the people is often
transacted without the least degree of fairness, the intention of the law evaded, exorbitant fees extorted, and the sufferers left to mourn under their oppressions.
4.    That an Attorney should have it in his power, either for the sake of ease or interest, or to gratify their malevolence and spite, or commence suits to what courts he pleases,
however inconvenient it may be to the Defendants; is a very great oppression.
5.    That all unlawful fees taken in Indictment, where the Defendant is acquited by his Country (however customary it may be) is an oppression.
6.   That Lawyers, Clerks, and others, extorting more fees than is intended by law; is also an oppression.  
7.   That the violation of the King's Instructions to his Delegates, their artfulness in concealing the same from him; and the great injury the People thereby sustains: is a manifest
oppression.
And for remedy whereof, we take the freedom to recommend the following mode of redress, not doubting audience and acceptance which will not only tend to our relief, but
command prayers at a duty from your humble Petitioners.

1.    That at all elections each suffrage be given by Ticket &  Ballot.
2.    That the mode of Taxation be altered, and each person  pay in proportion to the proffits arising from his Estate.
3.    That no future tax be laid in Money, until a currency is  made.
4.    That there may be established a Western as well as a  Northern and Southern District, and a Treasurer for the same.
5.   That when a currency is made it may be let out by a loan  office (on land security) and a Treasurer for the same
6.    That all debts above 60s (shillings) and under 10 pounds  be tried and determined without lawyers, by a jury of six  freeholders, impaneled by a Justice, and that their verdict
be enter'd by the said Justice, and be a final judgement.
7.    That the Chief Justice have no perquisites, but a Salary only.
8.    That Clerks be restricted in respect to fees, costs, and other things within the course of their office.
9.    That Lawyers be effectively Barr'd from exacting and extorting fees.
10.   That all doubts may be removed in respect to the payment of fees and costs on Indictments whereas the
Defendant is not found guilty by the jury, and therefore acquited.    
  11.   That the Assembly make known the Remonstrance to  the King, the conduct of the cruel and oppressive Receiver
of the Quit Rents, for omitting the customary easie and effectual method of collecting by distress, and pursuing the
expensive mode of commencing suits in the most distant Courts.
12.   That the Assembly in like manner make known that the Governor and Council fo frequently grant lands to as many as they think proper without regard to Head Rights,
notwithstanding the contrariety of his Majesties instructions, by which means immence sums has been collected, and  numerous Patents granted, for much of the most fertile   lands
in this Province, that is yet uninhabited and cultivated,  environed by great numbers of poor people who are necessitated to toil in the cultivation of bad Lands whereon
they hardly can subsist, who are thereby deprived of His Majesties liberality and Bounty nor is there the least regard  paid to the cultivation clause in said Patent mentioned, as
many of the said Council as well as their friends and favorites  enjoy large quanitities of Lands under the above-mentioned   circumstances.
13.  That the Assembly communicates in like manner the Violation of His Majesties Instructions respecting the Land  Office by the Governor and Council, and of their own rules,
customs and orders. If it be sufficiently proved, that after they had granted Warrants for some Tracts of Land, and   that the same was in due time suvey'd and returned and the
Patent fees timely paid into the said office; and that if a  private Council was called to avoid spectators, and  peremptory orders made that Patents should not be granted;
and Warrants by their orders arbitrarily to have been issued in the names of other Persons for the same Lands, and if   when intreated by a solicitor they refus'd to render so much  
as a reason for their so doing, or to refund any part of the money paid by them extorted.

14.   That some method may be pointed out that every Improvement on Lands in any of the Proprietors part be proved when begun, by whom, and every sale made, that the
eldest may have the preference of at least 300 acres.
15.   That all taxes in the following Counties be paid as in  other Counties in the Province (i.e.) in the produce of the  County and that warehouses be erected as follows (viz),
    In Anson County at Isom Haleys Ferry Landing on PeeDee River, Rowan and Orange at Cambleton in Cumberland County,  Mecklenburg at __?___ on the Catawba River, and
in Tryon  County at __?__ on __?__ River.
16.   That every denomination of People may marry according  to their respective mode Ceremony and customs after due publication or License.
17.   That Doc't Benjamin Franklin or some other known patriot be appointed agent, to represent the unhappy state of this Province to his Majesty, and to solicit the several
Boards in England.

CONFEDERATE HOME ONCE AGAIN HAS WIDOW RESIDENT

by Margaret McMahan


Thursday was another milestone in the life of 91-year-old Mrs. James Scoggins of Fayetteville. She became a resident of the Confederate Women's Home, and thereby somewhat
of a novelty.

Once upon a time Confederate widows predominated in the home on Fort Bragg Road (opened in 1915). Then, with the swift passing of the years, "real daughters" made up the
majority and finally, there was not a single widow among them.

Now there is one for the 35 other residents to enjoy. Mrs. Scoggin's clear peach-glow complexion and cameo features belie her years. Alert, smiling and proudly erect in her
wheelchair, she ignores the fact that she broke her hip just six weeks ago and cheerfully recalls, instead, some of the highlights of her life in the long ago. From her crown of snow-
white hair to the tips of her toes that peek out beneath a bright multicolored and handmade afghan, she is a lady of another century, bringing to life a slower and more gracious time.

Sarah Elizabeth Ussery was 22 when she married her 65-year-old veteran of the Confederate War, James Scoggins of Moore County.

"I had typhoid fever when I first knew him.: she tells you. "I had it that year from November to March. I was weak and lifeless and young company wore me out. He was very kind to
me. He came to see me and his voice was soft and pleasant. I liked him straight off and it didn't matter to me one bit that he was a widower and had 10 children. We were married on
December 23, 1901, I think it was, at my home on Harrington Hiss (Raleigh Road area).

What was the wedding like? Mrs. Scoggins is straight-forward and plain-spoken: "It wasn't anything fancy. We were married in the front room by a Methodist preacher named Moose.
My dress was brown- made out of a sort of flannel cloth. It was just a plain dress, but is was pretty. It didn't have any braid or velvet bows or anything like that."

The newlyweds set up housekeeping at the "Morgan Place" across the Cape Fear River. "Mr. Scoggins had been bargaining for it before we got married," says his widow, "and he
had made a down-payment on it. It wasn't long before the house caught fire and burned...There was a hole in the apron of the stove and I've always thought it was caused by a
spark or chip coming through it."

Home for a time was with a step-daughter "until we could find a place of our own again." Mr. Scoggins continued to farm and I helped him the best I could. I thought the Cape Fear
River was so pretty and once we took a boat ride and visited some of my Ussery kinfolk's in Bladen County. Most of the time we went places with a horse and a buggy...One of the
horses was named 'Charlie Bob'...He was a good old horse."

Mrs. Scoggins recalls that her soldier-husband fought in the "battles of Virginia:, but she doesn't remember "which battles". (Records at State Archives reveal that James Scoggins
volunteered April 9, 1862, Co. F, 56 Inf, NC State Troops, age 22, that he was wounded in June 1864 at Bermuda Hundred, near the James River in the Petersburg Campaign. He
was captured early in 1865 at Farmville, VA, and was paroled April 9, 1865, at Appomattox). She quotes his remark, " The Yankees were determined to send every soldier they
could get against us. .They got substitute soldiers to fight for them lots of times." Another cherished remembrance is that Scoggins "always kept a Testament in his pocket...bullets
would glance away from it."

Continuing, she declares with emphasis: "Mr. Scoggins was all right and he made my life happy as long as he lived (he died at 86, in 1921). He didn't drink, smoke, chew or curse.
He was a good singer and he was a good old Democrat, too. One of the nicest things about him, he was easy to cook for. He had to have hot coffee, but not hot meals. Sometimes
he'd say, " I'd like for you to stew me up a chicken or some beef:...And once I heard him say, "I promised my Master if I got out of that bloody old war I'd be thankful if I just had plenty
of bread."

Old memories stir and we learn of other matters. "Even though he was mostly good he did have his peculiarities, like any man. One was naming the children. He wanted all their
names to begin with the letter "L".

Coming quickly from the past into the present, Mrs. Scoggins tells you that reading is her greatest pleasure. "I've always liked to read the Bible and good poetry. But I'm going to
have to get my glasses changed so I can read better".

What does she think of her new home? "It's a nice place, comfortable and pretty, and has some nice people to talk to. The lady in charge is just as sweet as she can be."

Fortunately, Mrs. Scoggins will be able to see her two daughters often. Both of them, Mrs. Lilly Hall and Mrs. Caroline Broom, live in Fayetteville. Both admit to being old enough to
reside in the home themselves. But their time is not yet, since they are both working.

The new Confederate widow at North Carolina's home for survivors of the soldiers of 1861-1865 concludes with a bit of the philosophy that is, perhaps, the secret of her long life: " I
don't have anything against anybody. I'd do a favor for a person who didn't like me just as quick as I would one that did. I hope everybody has a home in heaven, just like the one I
hope to have for myself".

Montgomery Co., NC

In 1788, WELCOME, PETER , DAVID, and JAMES USSERY , as well as brother-in-law ISAAC ARMSTRONG (m. Elizabeth USSERY ) 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.

Obituary
The People's Press, June 25, 1891
Oldest Person in Wilkes Dead-- On the 7th instant, on Hunting Creek, Wilkes Co., Betsy Usery departed this life at the age of 105 years. The Chronicle says her husband was a
soldier in the Mexican war and that for many years the deceased had been drawing a pension to which the widows of such soldiers were entitled.

Marriages:
John Usry married Anne Yates, Wilkes County, NC Nov. 30 1814 Witnesses: Jesse (x) Smither (Smith or Souther?) and R. Martin, Clerk
Archibald Jacoway married Susanna Gilreath, Wilkes Co., NC, Dec. 29, 1804 Witnesses: Nancy Gilreath
[NOTE: Johannah Gilreath of Wilkes County, a widow, on May 9, 1809 took on as an apprentice one "Usley Robert" to teach her to be a spinster. I suspect that she must have been
the daughter of one of Johannah's daughters but do not know this for a fact. Johannah's daughter, Susannah Gilreath, married Archibald Jacoway in 1804 and they named one of
their sons "William Ussery Jacoway". I do not know the Ussery connection to this family but it appears to me that "Usley" was actually Ussery. Do you know how the Ussery family is
connected to either the Gilreath or the Jacoway family in early 1800s in Wilkes County?  John Norvill Jones - nj3568@mindspring.com ]
