The homestead was evidently near Drew's Landing in Polk Co., There was a place known as the "Mary Vickery Field" as late as the 1950's near the present-day subdivision of Holiday Lakes, east of Goodrich on the Trinity River, also Polk Co. deeds show an agreement between Wm. (cannot read) Goodrich & Mary Vickery over a disputed property line near Goodrich, Texas....."


========My Notes==================================

On the 1860 Mortality Schedule for Polk County, Texas there is a listing for 3 year old Arabella Vickery, b. Texas, d. June, 1870 after a 21 day illness. Cause of death - Flux..........I don't know whose child she was.

Elisha Vickerry, 27, b. MS., with wife Elizabeth 37, b. S.C. and
William Brake, 7, b. TX. ( This child is Elizabeth's son by her 1st. marriage.)

2. John J. "J. J." VICKERY, b. 1825, Mississippi; d. Aft. March 04, 1844, Somewhere in Mexico in either the Mier Expedition or Mexican War..

Notes for John J. VICKERY:
On June 7, 1841 an Unconditional Class 3 Certificate was issued to John J. Vickery for a 320 acre Land Grant in Liberty ( N. Dist.) County, Republic of Texas.

There is also a Land Certificate listed in the name " J. J. Vickery " in Cherokee Co., Texas.
(no date or other information.)

On March 4, 1844 J. J. Vickery signed a deed for a land certificate from James Davis to Aaron Vickery, (640 Acres) J.J. Vickery (320 acres) , William Anderson (320 acres) , & Elisha Vickery (320 acres)....Liberty County, Republic of Texas.

In Probate # 88 dated 4-10-1851, Polk Co., Texas, his brother, Elisha Vickery, petitioned the Court for his estate stating:
"The State of Texas, Polk County. To the Judge of the Probate Court of Polk County;
    Your Petioner, Elisha Vickery, would represent to your honor that his brother, J. J.

Vickery, deceased, that your Petioner shall have the entire interest in the certificate.........Petioner would further represent that the said Aron Vickery has departed this life without transfering........said certificate to your Petioner..............Elisha Vickery"

My Notes:
I believe John J. Vickery died somewhere in Mexico during the Mexican War since he went as a soldier of the US Army, but have not been able to locate his name on the Roster for either the Mier Expedition (1843 ?) or the Mexican War. There were listings on both of these for "Name unknown or Name not remembered")

CSA Records indicate Vance served with Co. E., 20th. Texas Inf. 1862-1865. He returned home 7-10-1865 after being hospitalized with a broken shoulder. As a disabled Confederate Veteran, received a donation land grant from the state of Texas in Bexar County on January 20, 1882.

Records describe him as 5ft. 10 ins. tall, hazel eyes, fair complexion.

There is a Land Certificate listed in his name in Edwards County, Texas, but I have no other information on it.

On October 5, 1909, in Liberty County, Texas, Vance filed an application for a Pension for his Confederate Service (listed above). In this application he states that he enlisted in February, 1861 and got home the 10 th. of July, 1865. He gives his age as 65 on June 16, 1909 and says he has lived at his present address , P.O. Rayburn, Texas for 5 years. He states he is suffering from Heart trouble, Old age, and Rumatism and at this time he owns 6 head of cattle worth about $ 40 and 1 Horse and Wagon worth about $ 70.00.

His brother, Hardin Vickery, ( Whose name was written as Hardin Vickerry )
as a Witness confirmed Vance's service in the Confederacy.

On some deed records in Liberty Co., TX. he is referred to as " Dr. Vance Vickery ",
but this was obivously an assumed title as he had little formal training. He was probably
what in those days was known as an " Herb Doctor ".
He is still remembered in San Jancito Co., Texas as" Dr. Vickery ".

1850 - Polk Co., with his mother, Mary Vickery.

1860 - Polk Co., TX,.... P. O. Swartout.....with his mother.

Family tradition says C.V. Vickery died soon after the birth of Claude
and that he was the only child of her marriage to Vance.

Notes for Udora  ERWIN:
In December, 1930, San Jacinto, Texas, a Widow's Application for a Confederate Pension was filed for Udora Vickery, based on the service of her husband, Vance Vickery (deceased). In her application, Udora states that she was born December 20, 1862 in Jasper County, Texas and that she and Vance were married on April 2, 1880 in Newton County, Texas.

She also gives her husband's date of death as 1909 and that she had lived at the same address in Shepherd, Texas for about 14 years.

A brief history of various activities of pioneers fron 1835 - 1910." Prinited in Livingston, Texas by Keen Printing Company, paid for by Miss Emma Haynes, 1968:


Two families of Vickery (Vickerry) moved from Miss. where the older men were born and settled in Polk Co., Tex. in the early 1840's.................The Vickery family farmed. Elisha's wife died in 1848 and two years later he married Mrs. Elizabeth Brake, a widow with one child, William, born in Polk Co. in 1843. She was born in S. Car. Elisha helped to survey roads in 1846 - 47. Aaron Vickery was born in Miss. in 1830. Elisha died in 1853.......

Mary Vickery was probably wife of Aaron, an older Aaron who died early in 1850. She was born in Tenn. and sons, Matthew and Hardin in Miss.

Nathaniel Bailey built a store a warehouse and a two - storied hotel.................................

( Page 53 )..........1850 census of Polk County shows that Nathanial Bailey was born in New Hampshire, Mrs. Bailey in New York State and Alphonso Bailey in Tenn.

Alphonso Bailey, the son of Nathanial and Sarah Bailey, married Ellen Vickery of Swartout in November, 1853 and died before June, 1857 without having made a will. He had a house, household furniture, and eight lots in Swartout. S. B. Tackaberry of Swartout applied to be administrator of Bailey's property and was appointed by the Court in 1858, after making a $6,000 bond. John F. Eckford of San Jacinto ( A Methodist minister ), Harper Copeland and John Vickery, father of Ellen, were appointed commisioners to appraise the property. The widow and children were allowed to keep one house and eight lots in Swartout and $300. In 1859 the widow of Bailey married Tackaberry. A son of Ellen and Bailey died at the age of 12 and was buried by his grandparents and father near Swartout.
