Thank you for your response and the information. Faithful Massey was my great, great, great grandmother through her daughter Mary Jane Ussery. I was wondering if you might know what Clarinda's middle name was and her death date. My information shows that Faithful was born in South Carolina in 1811. She was the daughter of James Massey and Faithful Strickland. She married Elijah Ussery in 1880 in Tenn. Elijah was murdered (not sure of the date) and she was left with several minor children. They lived in Cass Co., Tx. close to the city of Jefferson. She was involved in Probate cases in Marion Co. in 1861, 1862, and 1868. This information is available in the Probate indexes in Marion Co. for 1860-1939. She had nine children, E. M., William C., James A., Clarinda F., P. H., Theodore A., Jack, Mary Jane, and Eli. She was also in the 1850 Census in Cass Co., Tx. I haven't been able to find any information on her past the probate cases. I hope this is helpful.
Thank you again,
