Musadora Nugent
Family Tree

Musadora Nugent was born around 1835 in Roark's Cove, Franklin County, Tennessee. Her father was John Nugent and mother was Elizabeth Neighbors. Musadora and her sisters were assulted as is shown in the 1852 court case. She married Alexander Usrey in Coffee County Tennessee on July 6, 1864. I have found no records that they had any children. She is listed as an heir in the John Nugent estate in 1876 were they bought the house and land of her father. She died November 10, 1900 and is buried in the Cumberland Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Gum Creek, Franklin County, Tennessee.
