*Usry Bul #113, April 1970:Denmark--The 1850 US census for Cass County, Texas listing Eli Ussery from Denmark has caused some speculation as to whether Eli was really born in Denmark in Europe. There has been a theory that the Ussery name may have come originally from Denmark or some Scandinavian county, but this theory has not found much acceptance. Also, the theory contemplated a migration some hundreds of years ago, and not so recently as 1811, when Eli Ussery supposedly was born.

It has been pointed out that there was a town in western Madison Co., TN with the name of Denmark. However, the records for Madison county, as presently known, do not start until about 1840. This raises some doubt that Eli could have been born in Madison County as early as 1811.

Maps also show a town named Denmark in Bamberg Co., South Carolina which originally was in Barnwell county. The 1810 census for Barnwell county shows a Peter Ussery and the 1820 census shows Peter Ussery and Welcome Ussery. These Usserys are believed to have come from Montgomery county, NC. This raises the possibility that Eli Ussery was born in Barnwell Co., SC in or near the community of Denmark.

History of the Ruth Church of Christ written by J. I. Parham in the 1970's

"In those days, before the turn of the century, the members of the church of Christ in that area did not have a place to meet for worship. Finally arrangements were made with the Trustees of the Farmers Branch school to use the school building for this purpose. For the benefit of many in Coryell county and elsewhere, I would like to give the names of some of the ones that were responsible for the beginning of the Church of Christ in the Ruth Community. I am not depending on memory alone, for we have some records that were kept, without which we could not make much of a story. The records were kept by Juber and Viola Brown, a very prominent family in this particular community. The records relate the names of preachers who had preached at Ruth from the beginning. Having secured the Farmers Branch school building for a meeting place, the church began to grow. They met each first day of the week for worship and to commemorate the dath, burial and resurrection of our Lord. Following are the names of the ones, according to the records, that were there before the turn of the cnetury and had an active part in the development of the church.

First, I will name: John N. Brown, who had many descendants in Coryell County. And then Mistress Lucinda Medlin. She was known as 'Grandma Medlin'. Her knowledge of the Bible was excelled by none in her day. Others, were Mistress Newman, Mistress Betsy Todd, Alex and Mattie Pruitt, Will and Mary Pruitt, Ab and Ada Pruitt, Mr. and Mistress E. P. Denny, Miss Betty Todd, Miss Jo Brown, Miss Bertie Brown, Mr. and Mistress John Gates, Robert and Jenny Jackson, Miss Annie Medlin, Virgie Bird, Juber and Viola Brown, Richard Wicker, Tom and Fannie Woolard, Mistress (Grandma) Wicker, Mistress Sergent, Mr. and Mistress Silas Wood, Sillis Carroll, Mr and Mistress Tom Baldy, Mr. and Mistress Calvin Furgeson Tom and Rena Beal, Cora Beal, Mr. and Mistress Dick, Mr. C. M. Brown, Miss Janie Evans, Miss EllieBrown, Miss Clema Brown, Miss Mary Denny, Miss Mattie Denny, Mr. Ed Wood. There are others of course, of which we have no name. But these were the ones who were active in the development of the church of Christ in the Ruth community."

Preachers: "According to the record, the names of the preachers that have preached at Ruth are as follows: J. J. Moye, H. F. Oliver, A. R. Lawrence, T. R. Burnett, W. D. Black, J. N. Cowan, J. S. Hall, Ernest Christian, W. M. Carter, J. T. Bentley, W. A. Bentley, Kirby Bentley, Frank Coleman, D. F. Draper, U. R. Forrest, J. W. Kelley, W. T. Kidwell, A. J. McCarty, Dr. Truitt, Sam Smith, John Straton, J. M. Ussery, T. B. Clark, Joe Sprott, Brother McGann, John W. Hedge, Brother Tripp, Frank Cox, Brother Brandon, brother Courtner, Ira Grantham, D. J. Whitten, Mike M. Young, Sylis Howell, Flavil Colley, Fred Ross, Charlie Watkins, Alfonso Bezoni, Sylvester Graham and Bud Alford."

Charlie A. King to Mrs. Cecil Usrey May 2, 1943

Cecil Inez Usrey was first married to Balser D. Hefner in 1925. They had 4 children, 3 girls and one boy. My mother was the middle girl. Balser and Cecil abandoned the children and the youngest child, the boy died of pneumonia and malnutrition. The three girls were adopted by various family members. Bessie, the eldest was adopted by the Hefner family and her name was changed to Beth. Her married name is Pohl I believe and if still living, lives in Oregon. Ruth, the youngest was adopted by ‘Aunt Mamie (Chitwood) I believe and was raised in Lake Charles, Lousiana. My mother was originally named Clara May (Mae?) but her named was changed at the age of about 3 to Gene Claire when she was adopted by Cecil’s brother, Mack Andrew, and his wife Clarice Louise Snyder Usrey. I knew Cecil as Cecil King. I believe she died in Oklahoma.

John McMills et als vs. Thomas W. Clark, Adm.

District Court Fall Term A.D. 1853

The following is a statement of facts proven on the trial of the above suit: Hardy Strickland being sworn, stated, that Presley P. Rains told him that he had sold to JOHN URSURY one hundred acres of land, for which he had secured payment. That URSURY had built houses on it; and cleared a field, and died on it. That he proposed to buy the URSURY place from Rains; that Rains said he would like to have him for a neighbor, but that he could not sell him the land, for he had sold it to URSURY, and given a bond for title. Witness said that he did not know whether the land described in the petition was the some land that Rains he had sold to URSURY, That the spring is on the Alfred Reel head-right, That Rains was then living on the Alfred Reel head-right This was in the year 1839. That the JACK URSORY place which he proposed to buy of Rains was about 1/2 or 3/4 mile from where Rains then lived.

McAdams being next sworn, testified, that in March or April 1840 Jamison, at the request of Mrs. Rains showed him the ___ of the tract of one hundred acres, which Mrs. Rains said had been laid out by her husband and Jamison, for JACK URSURY, that he, the witness, examined the line? and found the tract in an oblong shape; that Jamison pointed out a grave; and showed him a live tree marked with the letters J.M. Mrs. Rains proposed to sell the land to the witness, in the presence of her mother, old Mrs. Ursury, who said to her, “Sarah Ann, you ought not to sell that land for you know that Jack Ursury bought it and paid for it in a yoke of oxen at one hundred dollars and Mr. Rains gave his bond for title to it.” Witness then proposed to buy the land but ___ that year from Rains, widow of P.P. Rains, and stated that a man by the name of Britt wanted it from Mrs. Rains, the next year. The witness further testified that Ben Kimberland’s houses are now three or four hundred yards east of where the Ursury houses were, in the same tract of land, known as the Ursury place; and that the Ursury place is on the William Little headright survey.

Stanfield, Kimberling, Boulware and Hall, being next sworn and the following description of land being read to them by the defendant’s counsel from the petition, to wit: “One hundred acres, bounded on the East by the land of Albert Jones, on the South by that of Thomas W. Clark; on the North by that of Benjamin Kimberland; and on the West by the lands of James King and Forest.: They each severally testified, that they knew the land thus described; that it is on the Alfred Reel headright; that there never has been any houses, improvements, nor clearing it; that the Ursury improvements are on the William Little survey from 1/2 to 3/4 off a mile from the defendant Clark’s house, which is the same place where Rains lived in 1839. Stanfield further testified, that Ursury showed him his clearing on his south boundary line in 1838 or 1839 and pointed to where there was a spring; he said it was on a point of land and that he could have the use of it. Witness said the spring was on the land described above, on the Alfred Reel survey. That Clark has been in the possession of land since 1840 and he (witness) considered that he had it in possession for the estate and heirs of Rains.

It was also in evidence, that at the time Mrs. Rains proposed to sell to McAdams, she was the widow and administratrix of P.P. Rains; _then?__ married Thomas W. Clark, who became administrator of Rains’ Estate, and also administrator of Jack Ursury’s estate, and still is so, of both estates. That the Pltf Nancy [Clark] is now the wife of Pltf John McMills, is the surviving wife of Jack Ussery, and the Pltf Sarah Ann is the only child said Ursury and the said Nancy and is about 14 or 15 years old.

(Editor's note: Nancy Clark first married John A. Ussery was Nancy Clark's second husband and they had Sara Ann b. abt. 1839; then Nancy married John McMills . Their children were John, William and Isaac).

We the counsel for the plaintiffs to the above suit, agree to foregoing statement of facts, and that the ___ contains all the facts proved at the trial, sign under our hands and seals this 7th February 1852.
