The preceeding information is on Jeff Weaver's Website. To view the entire site, click the above title. This list is contained in the Lyman Draper Papers,
and is undated. It is presumably a list of men in what became Grayson County in 1792 accused of being Tories or refusing to take the oath of alliegance to
the Commonwealth of Virginia. Quakers were included on this list because they refused to take oaths of any kind, and were thus suspect in the eyes of
Montgomery County Officials.

Using Virginia Land Records in Family History: K
ettlestick, Flat Rock, Tar Kiln and Crooked Run, with Blackwell-Hite-Ussery-Pettway. By June Banks
Evans.   For more than two hundred years the land on Kettlestick Branch of Flat Rock Creek, a tributary of Meherrin River, was held by only four families.
The original patent was granted in 1743 to Edward Pettway of Sussex County while the area was still a part of Brunswick County, although that tract fell
into Lunenburg County upon its formation in 1746, and additional acreage was granted him in 1750. He sold 475 acres of these patents to John Ussery in
1770 and his heirs some forty years later sold to Robert Blackwell. The Blackwells later sold a portion to James Land Hite, whose family continued in
possession for the next 150 years. Mrs. Evans has traced these four families through several generations, providing abstracts of the deeds and wills
concerning each and adding pertinent entries in the land tax books and other record series. A number of maps are reproduced with the land boundaries
superimposed on them and photographs of "Oaksville," the Hite residence, are included. There is a full index of personal names. Copies can be ordered

Subject: Your Ussery Site
From: "Barbara Martin"
Thank you for your wonderful Ussery Surname Research Site. You have done a tremendous job there.
I think you and I may be approaching the same question from opposite directions, and I'm hoping we can come together and solve it. Prior to seeing your
site, I had begun to suspect that my distant grandmother was a Ussery of Lunenburg Co., Virginia. GGGGG-GM, Francis "Fanny" Calliham Garrett named
a daughter Jane Ussery Garrett. Fanny was the daughter of John Calliham and an unknown mother whom I suspect was a Ussery. John C. had land
adjoining John Ussery. In 1793, John C. deeded a slave over to granddaughter Jane Ussery Garrett. A John Ussery witnessed the deed.

John Calliham did not name his wife in his 1804 will, so the presumption was that she had died.

John U. and John C. listed together in the Lunenburg County, Virginia Publick Claims 1780-1784:
John Ussary for 2 gunsJohn Callaham for the same
Also this from John Calliham's son, Morris:
Deed Bk. 20 p. 20. 12 May 1804.
Morris Calliham and wife Jane of Edgefield County, South Carolina to Sterling Niblitts of Lunenburg consideration: $1,000 current money of Virginia land: in
Lunenburg containing 522 1/2 ac beginning on Kettlestick Creek on Usserys line..., Nibletts line..., Ragsdales line..., Morgains line..., Kettlestick Creek...

Morris Calliham
Witnesses: John Garrett, John Ussery, James Niblett. .. Proved 14 June 1804 .

(Source: The South Carolina Magazine of Ancestral Research, SCMAR, Volume XII, Number 1, Winter, 1984, p.20, Some Migrations from Virginia to South
Carolina (Continued from Vol. XI, p.103)

When I discovered your site, I found that you had this same John and Sarah Ussery with a daughter who may have married a Calliham: viewable at: http:
//www.geocities.com/~cindycasey/john3.htm#john4 (John Ussery and Sarah)

It is not known when John Ussery was born, but it is believed he is the same John who died in 1784. Speculation has been made that he was born around
1718 and arrived in Baltimore in the 1730's. His wife was Sarah, (mn unknown) and they had the following children:

1. Thomas Ussery
2. Pleasant Ussery mar. Susanna D. Irby
3. Annice Ussery and Thomas Almand, Sr.
4. Samuel Ussery
5. Sarah Ussery? mar. Callyhan?
Could it be that your Sarah married John Calliham? Do you have anything further on this Sarah, or do you have a source for this entry that I could pursue?
Interestingly, my John and unknown wife named one daughter Sarah, and another after his mother.

Thanks again for your great site. Barbara Martin

Another query!

I was wondering if you have any info on Sherwood [Sherrod] CAllahan and his wife Nancy. You did clear something up for on the marriage of Sherwood
and Nancy. The Callahan and CArwile Book has Sherrrod married to Mary Ussery, then MAtthew Callahan marries Sherod wife.

My husband descends from Matthew Callahan and his second wife. He very well could descend from MAtthew and his first wife Mary Ussery too. Do you
happen to know the names of Matthew and Mary Ussery`s children. In 1850 MArgaret Callahan marries a Henry J. Callahan here in MAury Co. Tn. Henry J.
was a son of Matthew and the 2nd wife. I`m trying to find the parents of Margaret father John H. Callahan b. 1804 in VA.

It`s very confusing --Matthew, sherrrod and Moses Callahan marrying 3 Ussery`s If John H is the son of MAtthew or Sherod [Sherwood], then he is related
to the Ussery. If you don`t have any info, maybe you know someone who does. Thanks PAtsy
