WEBB - It was suggested by another researcher that I check out Isle of Wight County, VA. I am seeking any additional information that you can add to these families especially the parents/siblings of Pleasant Webb. Thanks a million. ================================================================

Pleasant (Plesent) WEBB was born about ca 1760. His son, Elias, said that his father, Pleasant was born in Ireland (not substantiated). He died between 1830 and 1840 in Ohio, USA. Around 1800 Pleasant and family came in to the Ohio valley from Rutherford County, North Carolina. In 1803 (reported to be 45 years old) he was in Scioto County, Ohio and was said to be a notorious character. Supposedly, he tried to break up a fight between James Bradley and the wife and children of James Quire (Squires). He ended up shooting Mr. Quire (Squires). After this incident at the Licks, he was driven out of that area. He is also said to have been a Tory during the Revolutionary War. Pleasant was in GreenupCounty, Kentucky in 1820 and in Lawrence County, Ohio in 1830, he did not appear in the 1840 census, so it is believed he died between 1830-1840.

HEDGEBETH - Looking for information on ancestors of John Moses Hedgebeth, born about 1835 in Nansemond County, Virginia. I believe his father was Elijah Hedgebeth of Isle of Wight County, Virginia. John Moses had a sister, Nancy Hedgebeth, born approximately 1835. Elijah's wife was Mary (maiden name unknown). I speculate that Elijah and Mary had two othe children, Dixon Hedgebeth and William H. Hedgebeth (my great great grandfather). Census data for Nansemond County in 1860 and 1870 lists William's and Dixon's last name as Hedgbeth rather than Hedgebeth. John Moses married Charlotte Holland. I believe that John Moses Hedgebeth may have been killed in the Civil War only because he does not show up in the 1870 census for Nansemond County and Charlotte does. But again, just speculation on my part.
