    Family sources report her full name as Ursula Jane.  I found her name in the 1950 census as Usley.  Then in her marriage record from Rutherford County, North Carolina, I found it the same, Usley Burleson.  In the 1850 census, there were three people on the same page with this name or similar.  In two cases it is written Ulsey, in her case Usley, as in her marriage record.

    Since we know her full name was Ursula Jane, this appears to be a nickname for Ursula.  Elsewhere she is reported as Ursula or Jane.  And Pleasant named one of his daughters Ursula Jane.  This variation in the nickname form of the name makes one wonder if it should have been Ulsey, rather than Usley, on her marriage record and 1850 census record.
