Simeon Perkins and Celia A. Howardton

From the History of Texas, The Lewis Publishing Co., Chicago, 1896
Usry Bul. 164 page 1)

More than twenty years a resident of Comanch county, and nearly twice that long of Texas, the subject of this sketch is entitled to biographical honors in this work on account of his long connection with the state if for no other reason; but more than that his life has been one of activity and usefulness; he has done his part in helping to develop the resources of the country, and he is now one of the respected citizens of Sidney, living practically rot rod. None are better known or more worthy of personal mention than he, and it is gratifying to us to present here the following facts in regard to his life and ancestry.

Simeon Perkins was born February 14, 1833, five miles from Savannah, the county seat of Hardin county, Tennessee. His father, Samuel Perkins, was a native of North Carolina, of English and Scotch extraction and a representative of a family that settled in the Carolinas during the colonial period. He was twice married. By his first wife, whose maiden name was Marsh and whom he wedded in North Carolina, he had six children, viz: Hugh, John, William, Solomon, E.M. Perkins and Lucinda. Some time after her death he was united in marriage to Miss Anna Ussery, a native of Tennessee and a member of one of the respected families of the state. As a result of their union eight children were born, namely; Amanda, Hardeman, Catharine, Samuel, Anna, Joseph, Simeon and Louisa. The mother of those children died in Hardin County, Tennessee. The father lived to the ripe old age of seventy-six years. Both were members of the Christian church, in which they reared their family. By occupation the father was a farmer, in politics he was Democratic, and as an honorable and upright citizen he stood high in his community.

On his father's farm in Hardin county the subject of our sketch passed his boyhood and youth and as he grew up had instilled in him those lessons of honesty and industry which form the foundation of all true success. His book knowledge was obtained in the common schools near his home and his business training was in the broad school of experience. In 1853, at the ambitious age of twenty, we find young Perkins breaking home ties and starting for far-away California, where he landed in due time, having made the journey by water. A year later he returned East, and the next year again went to California and made another sojourn on the Pacific coast. While there he engaged in mining and was fairly successful. In 1857 he directed his course toward Texas, and took up his abode in Rusk county, where he made his home until 1875, when he disposed of his interests there and came to Comanche county. Here he purchased a large tract of land near Sidney and about ten miles west of Comanche, and for some years was extensively engaged in farming and stock-raising. At one time he owned no less than fifteen hundred acres at this point, but of recent years sold off most of his acreage and is now retired from the active duties of the farm. His home is a handsome, modern residence, beautifully furnished and with attractive surroundings, and here he and his good wife are pleasantly passing their declining years, surrounded by a large circle of friends and acquaintances, by all of whom they are held in high esteem.

Mr. Perkins was married December 15, 1859 in Rusk county, this state, to Miss Celia A. Howardton, a native of Alabama but reared and educated in Rusk county. She is a daughter of William and Mary A. Howardton, both natives of Alabama and both now deceased. They were among the early and prominent families of Rusk county. His death occurred there in 1866 and hers in Sidney in 1895.

Reverting to Mr. Perkins' early life in Texas, we state that when the civil war came on he left his wife at their home in Rusk county and went out in defense of the Confederate cause, as a member of the Eleventh Texas Infantry. Governor O.M. Roberts was his colonel. Among the engagements in which he participated were those of Mansfield, Jenkins' Ferry and others, and on one occasion he was captured by federal troops, taken to New Orleans and there held a prisoner fifty days, after which he was released. Mr. Perkins has always tendered his support to the Democratic party. He is now the appointed postmaster of Sidney, but does not himself take charge of the office, its business all being in the hands of his deputy, Hugh R. Lacy. Both Mr. Perkins and his wife are identified with the Christian church, of which they are members and liberal supporters.

Mastin Ussery and Catherine McKinnon

Mastin Ussery was born about in 1809 Montgomery Co, NC. and died about 1858 in Hardeman Co., TN. He married Mary Catherine about 1834. She was born about 1813 in NC and after 1865. The following article was found in the HARDEMAN CO, TN HISTORICAL SKETCHES 1979


by Bob Ussery

Hardeman County was the settling site for Mastin, Benjamin, Welcome and Pearson Ussery and their families from Montgomery County, North Carolina. They joined the rolling tide of migration that swept them across the mountains, down the valleys to the new home in Middleburg. They were experienced planters and woodcrafters.

Mastin Ussery (1808-1858) built his one-room cabin, sixteen by twenty feet, and later expanded it with additional rooms connected by the familiary "dog trot". Later, the lots were covered with clapboard. Nearby, stood the woodshop and forge, where the men built wagons, furniture and coffins.

Welcome and Person settled further south where Welcome built a millpond and established Ussery Mill which was used as a polling site for District seven.

Mastin and Mary Catherine were parents of William, who served with the confederate Army; Amanda; Delita; Tabitha; Jackson; Frederick; Eliza; Mary; Macklin; Noah; Robert; Andrew.

Mary Catherine Ussery died just after the war. William, Robert and Andrew remained in Hardeman County. Andrew and his wife, Mary Caroline Reaves moved to Whiteville. All three brothers and their wives are buried in the Ussery Cemetery just west of the Mastin Ussery home. They pioneered together, enjoyed the weddings, the cropping, the barbeques, and quaked in the face of the fever and joined in the tears at death. They were God-fearing people with a great respect for self, marriage, and community. Sharing intimately the horrors of wars, civil and against the elements they had a fierce bond of friendship and loyalty to each other, their country, state and county.

On Feb 26, 1847Daniel H. Marsh of Hardeman County sold to Mastin Ussery of Hardeman County, for $55, 7 acres of land located between Bolivar and Middleburg. From Welcome Ussery's line crossing Stago Pond, west to Nielson's line, thence south to Stago Pone, and east to beginning.( Book J page 29 )

Pearson Ussery and Alice/Alcye Pulliam

Pearson Ussery was born May 17, 1817 in Montgomery Co, NC and died Dec 20, 1865 Faulkner County, AR. With his brothers, Mastin, Benjamin, and Welcome, he migrated to Hardeman County, TN. (I believe there was another brother Thomas Wade, but have no proof of relationship) On Feb 7, 1840 in Hardeman Co, TN he married Alice/ Alcy Pullum who was born Jun 15, 1815 NC to Silas and Sarah Morgan Pulliam. Alcy died Apr 20, 1898 in Faulkner County, AR. Both are buried in the Mt. Vernon Cemetery.

In Conway County AR, Alice filed Probate Records on Pearson' s Estate:

D02, No 204, Estate of Pearson Usrey. Admin. Alice Usery. Alice Uscery, wife and widow of Pearson Uscery, deceased, requests $30 with which to buy provisions for herself and family during the year; approved. Bond for Alice Uscery approved, July 3, 1867, Nathan Phillip, James A Ucerry, and Wesley Lively report to the Court that they have laid off dower land about one-third of the total land, for the widow in NE NE 36-7-11; W SE1/4 25-7-11; W 1/2 NW 1/4 36-7-11 January 15, 1868, claim of R.T.

Noah R. Ussery and Martha Jane Reaves

Noah R. Ussery was born about 1834 in NC to Mastin and Mary Catherine Ussery. He migrated with his family and uncles to Hardeman Co., TN. On Jan 4, 1853 in Hardeman Co., TN he married Martha Jane Beavers. (Source: Hardeman Co., TN Marriage Records, July 11, 1852 - Dec. 31, 1859, copied by Armour, Bolivar, TN., Feb. 3, 1965 pg 5: "Noah R. Usery to Martha Jane Beavers. Bond made Dec. 20, 1852 by Noah R. Usery and W.W. Taylor. License issued Dec. 20, 1852 by R.P. Neely, CCC. Solemnized Jan. 4, 1853 by M.J. Hamer)

Noah can be found in the Hardeman Co., TN Census listed as a blacksmith. Three years later in 1853, he married Martha. I believe they eventually migrated to Arkansas to live close to Pearson Ussery, his uncle. According to a descendant (, Noah's daughter, Mary J. Ussery died in Arkansas and was a member of the Surrounded Hill Church of Christ in Jackson Co., AR. This could substantiate Pearson as being the reason Noah moved.

Noah and Martha Jane had two known children:

  1. Mary J. Ussery b: Abt. 1856 Hardeman Co., TN? d: Jan 7, 1918 AR mar. John W. Blanton
  2. Adolphus N. Ussery b: Abt. 1859

The following Info contributed by Lyn,

From the will of William Beavers, Hardeman Co., Book 5, page 136: " debts be settled and the residue to my wife Marey for her support. Upon her death what she leaves should be divided between my five children. Elizabeth F. Marsh, Martha Jane Ussery, Mary Ann Ussery, Angaline Ussery and Nancy Adaline and said property that I will to the childring that have husbands to be at the disposal of the husband of said childring."

This is all I have of his will at this time, but have ordered the entire document, which I will pass along to you at a later time, as well as the actual settlement, which lists "N.R. Ussery, A.J. Ussery, Wm. Ussery and J. P. Clifft" that I know of so far. William Beavers died in 1866.

From the Hardeman Co. marriage books I know:
"Ussery, W.H.C. to Beavers, Angelina, 11 Sep 1865, no bondsman shown, solemnized 13 Sep 1865 by W.S. Douherty, MG"
"Usery, Noah R. to Beavers, Martha Jane 20 Dec 1852, W.W. Taylor bondsman, solemnized 4 Jan 1853 by M.J. Hamer, PG"
I "believe" the third Beaver's daughter to marry a Ussery was:
"Ussery, F.P. to Biebers, M.A. 11 Oct 1864 no bondsman shown, solemnized 27 Oct 1864, B.F. Ussery, JP"
This third would be Mary Ann Ussery. The other two girls in the Beavers family were: Elizabeth Beavers, m. Obediah Marsh in Oct 1850; and, Nancy Adaline, m. H.E. Dailey in April 1867.

In researching the Beavers and Ussery, we found William Beavers widow, Mary:
1870 Census - Hardeman Co., TN - district 7, hh 18
Beavers, Mary 59, f, farmer, NC
VESEY, M.A. 29, f, TN
Vesey, Lavinia 5, f, TN
Vesey, Sarah E. 3, f, TN

I believe this "VESEY" to be Mary Ann USSERY, living back with her mother after "possibly" being widowed. I'll be checking this out. However, when looking farther into the "VESEY" thing, we found the following:

1870 Census - Hardeman Co., TN - hh 21
VESEY, Noah 33, m, farmer, TN
Martha 33, f, TN
Mary 14, f, TN
Adolphus 12, m, TN
Virginia 8, f, TN
William 4, m, TN

From "History of Laclede, Camden, Dallas, Webster, Wright, Texas, Pulaski, Phelps & Dent Counties, Missouri ", Published 1889, Goodspeed Publishing Company.

J. P. Brownlow, banker of Buffalo, MO., and one of the prominent and enterprising residents of Dallas County, was born in Giles County, Tenn., August 17, 1841, and is a son of James and Isabel (McCreary) Brownlow, who were also natives of that State and county, the former being killed during the late war by the soldiers, and the latter dying in Dallas County, MO., in 1882. J. P. Brownlow received a limited early education, owing to the scarcity of good schools at that period, but acquired a fair knowledge of the "three R's". In 1861 he enlisted in the Confederate army, in Company K, Third Tennessee Regiment, under Col. Brown, who afterward became governor of Tennessee, and participated in the battle of Fort Donelson, where he was wounded by a grape-shot in the right arm, and was afterward discharged and joined the Ninth Tennessee Cavalry, and was elected a lieutenant in Gen. Forrest's command. At the battle near Franklin he was wounded by a gunshot in the left shoulder, but was not disabled from duty. He was also in the battles of Nash- ville, Resaca and in a great many hard skirmishes, and was mustered out and discharged in April, 1865, at Gainesville, Ala., after which he returned home, and was engaged in farming until 1873, when he came to Dallas County, and located in Benton Township, about five miles from Buffalo, where he tilled the soil and was interested in stock trading and raising until 1882. He then came to Buffalo, where he has since made his home. All his business enterprises have been attended with good results, and in both social and business life he ranks among the first men of the county, and is a liberal giver to all worthy enterprises, having been one of the liberal contributors to the beautiful Baptist Church which has lately been erected in the town. He was married on December 4, 1859, to H.J. Ussery, a native of Tennessee, by whom he has seven children: Arabella F., Sallie P., John E., Joseph F., Cecil A., Cora and Katie. Mr. and Mrs. Brownlow and their four oldest children are worthy and consisten members of the Baptist Church, and are highly esteemed residents of the county.
