Thank you! I did not have the probate information for Faithful!
I am sorry but I do not know Clarinda's death or middle name. But Faithful had a half sister named Clarinda Clementine (Massey) Bass, child of James H Massey and Martha Ellen Anderson, his second wife. Just a thought.
I believe Eli Ussery was murdered in 1853 by Alfred R Lander in Jefferson. This is from the books "Antebellum Jefferson, Texas: Everyday Life in an East Texas Town" and "Reports of cases argued and decided in the Supreme Court of the State of Texas, Volume 12".
