In an earlier case Martha A. PETTY said her husband died owning 2/9 interest in a tract of land in the 18th C.D. containing about 555 A, being the tract owned by James DOUGLASS at time of his death and on which his widow Susan resided. Intestate (Daniel PETTY) owned very little other property. Due to Civil War the slaves were freed and that caused insolvency of the estate, and the widow asked land be sold for payment of debts.

In an earlier case Martha A. PETTY said her husband died owning 2/9 interest in a tract of land in the 18th C.D. containing about 555 A, being the tract owned by James DOUGLASS at time of his death and on which his widow Susan resided. Intestate (Daniel PETTY) owned very little other property. Due to Civil War the slaves were freed and that caused insolvency of the estate, and the widow asked land be sold for payment of debts.

This John GOFF is the one who moved to GI Cty., TN and lived there through 1880. It appears he moved back to WM Cty., TN where he died, apparently to be near other relatives in his older years, as all his children had moved to more distant places, or had difficulties with those who were in TN. He appears to be a cousin of the John GOFF who mar. Susan Walker. He also appears to have had brothers who were in GI Cty. in earlier records. See John Goff of GI genealogy in the GI Cty., TN library, submitted by the compiler. I do not know if there is any connection of the Joseph Erwin of GI Cty. to the ERWINS of WM. Cty.

Bolivar is on Ms. River and has two Cty. Ct.houses. Both would have to be checked, Chancery Ct. has land records, which should include slaves bought and sold, as they were considered chattel. Written above his name was "Agent for Mastin". I suppose this means Mastin was the owner of the property, which could be land, slaves or both. I suspect working the deeds there should reveal the kind of property and should be in Mastin's name. Now I wonder if the reason "the gold was buried in his yard" was from slaves that two brothers were "running" was not in fact the property of Mastin and the reason the gold was buried in his yard. Quoted from conversation with Abner USSERY of Caldwell Cty., TX, a descendant and current owner of the USSERY property.

From newspaper "Daily Cosmopolitan", Brownsville, TX - Column titled "Daily News"
"A fellow named Sam BROWN who waned to marrie Gussie, Daughter of M. USSERY and who was unfavorably looked on by the old man, on the 7th went to his sweethearts house and in cold blood shot and killed her father." Published in "TIPS OF TEXAS" genealogical quarterly of Harlingen, TX, Vol. 3, No. 3, Nov. 1965, p. 25.
A descendant said the story was Sam BROWN asked for the hand of Gussie and was refused because she was too young, He came back to the USSERY home a 2nd time and again refused, whereupon he shot & killed Mastin on his front porch. They buried Mastin in the front yard of the home, which became the USSERY Cemetery. The graves of Mastin and Sarah Jane are the above-ground type about 2-3 feet high and filled in with asphalt when I saw it. Several USSERY family members are buried there.
This descendant also said sons and sons-in-laws formed a posse and caught the Sam Brown. They hanged him in the town of Luling and then dragged his body behind a horse through the town. Charges were brought against the posse memebers. Some of them went to California until the charges were dropped. The descendant said it was the last hanging in the Cty.
