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 &
	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
	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
	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
          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
	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
	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.

Name: USSERY, JESSE RAY August 01, 1978 - August 21, 1978 Marriages

Sarah Ussery age 22 to James Scoggins age 65 Dec. 23, 1902. Source: Fayetteville Observer (Nov. 6, 1971) Article was titled Confederate Home Once Again Has Widow Resident. Sarah Ussery Scoggins was the last surviving daughter of the Confederacy.


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".
