I see furthermore that "eucre" appears in the Arkansas Times and Advocate, 25 Dec. 1835 (Newspapers.com).  Naturally, Barry Popik has been there already and clipped that article.

In Newspapers.com, the advertisement mentioning "Ucre" appears as early as the Tennessean, Jan. 9, 1836.

OED has 1841 for the card game "euchre".

This is also quite early for "poker" (OED has 1832).
