Marriages: Hoyt H. Green to Miss Mildred V. Usry m. 12 Feb 1950

Misc. Items by H.G. Gray (Usry Bul 68 pg 6)

From A History of Oktibbeha County, Miss., written partially by Thomas Eattle Carroll. Judy Carroll's wife was Gertrude Perkins, a daughter of Dr. J.B. Perkins, son of
Joseph Perkins who married Mary Pauline Ussery, daughter of Peter Ussery of Giles Co., TN.

Excerpt: "A mile and a half east of Sessums? stands, Joseph Perkins in 1837 built a grist mill, horse operated, which served the immediate neighborhood."

Robinson's road from Huntsville, AL to Columbus, MS and throught the southeastern part of Oktibbeha County, and into Winston, and on to Jackson, MS. A
descendant ofJoseph Perkins whomarried Mary Pauline Ussery in Giles Co., TN says that Joseph Perkins came over this road with Andrew Jackson during the War
of 1812, like the country and after the war moved down.

About 1838 Joseph Perkins established the first tanning yeard in the county. It was not far from the grist mill. The Askew Crossings road passes north and south
through the old site, and the right-of-way of the Mobile and Ohio Railroad, Starkville branch runs through the northern end of it. Here Perkins bored a deep well, the
first artesian wells in Oktibbeha County.

William Dixon Perkins was one of the founders of the Starkville Baptist church July 28, 1839.

As a trade center Agency, Mississippi rivalled, perhaps exceeded Starkville in the middle 50's. It did not equal the county seat in number of stores, but surpassed it
in value of trade. Some of the store keepers were John Ussery Perkins; Dr. J.B. Perkins; Gordon Alston; Admiral Warr; and Perkins & James. Beat 5: The physicians
in this beat during the period around 1858 were C.W. Jordan; Joseph B. Perkins; E.R. Burt and J.G. Carroll. Perkins was the sone of Joseph Perkins, above
mentioned; he began his medical practice in 1852 and continued actively in practice; he moved to Starkville in 1892. He died there in 1899. Carroll came from
Carrollton, AL in 1857 and practiced at Choctaw Agency community until 1894; then he moved to Starkville where he died in 1902. Part of this book was written by
Judge Carroll before his death around 1924.

The records also show that Richard Ussery and John Ussery, sons of Peter Ussery, also served in Mississippi in the War of 1812. They all settled together, first in
Monroe County, where Richard Ussery and Joseph Perkins are shown close together in the 1830? index. Joseph Perkins moved to Oktibbeha County before 1840.
