Trying to find the parents of Pleasant James ARNOLD, b. 1854 in MO (according to 1900 Ray Co., MO census--have no idea where he was before then). He is my husband's great-grandfather, and the census records also show that both his parents were b. in KY, but we don't know the county. A family has been mentioned in some old books which has a Pleasant ARNOLD. We are trying to determine if they ended up in MO in the mid 1800s (or earlier) and if he could have been an ancestor of our Pleasant James ARNOLD. This family seems to have first shown up in VA, travelled through KY, and ended up in TN. Some also went on to MO. Here is what was written: William ARNOLD m. Elizabeth NOEL, 17 Jun 1787, Halifax Ct., VA. Children: (1) Robert ARNOLD, m. Elizabeth MARION. Lived in Shelby Ct., KY, but migrated to MO, where he lived in St. Charles Co. and Montgomery Co. After Elizabeth died, he m. Piercy HAMLIN. They lived in Calloway Co., MO. (2) William ARNOLD, died during War of 1812 due to measles. (3) Noel/Howell ARNOLD, b. abt 1793 in KY. He m. America (Mariah) NOEL. In 1850 they were living in Gibson Ct., TN with 6 children. (4) *Pleasant ARNOLD*, m. Sythra BARNS, 1822, Wilson Co., TN. (5) Polly ARNOLD. (6) Susan ARNOLD.

I find Jessie & Melonia in 1850/1860 in White Co., Tn, then 1870/1880 in Wilson Co, Tn. Also, Timothy D. CLARK & Mary McRoy in 1870/1880 Wilson Co, Tn. Timothy & Mary CLARK supposedly died of some epidemic, leaving their children orphaned and to be raised by family or friends.

HUBBARD - OWEN Looking for parents and any connections to Pleasant HUBBARD b. about 1815 in Tn. Married 1st16 Nov 1835 Wilson Co. Locky OWEN b. about 1818 in Tn. Pleasant m. 2nd Phebe OWEN in 1855. Phebe is daughter of Stephen and Mary BATES OWEN. Pleasant and Locky were listed next to Josiah and Ritten BRYAN OWEN. Josiah was brother to above Stephen and I believe that my Locky may be a daughter of Josiah. In 1840 an estate sale of Reuben Hubbard included Pleasant Hubbard, Stephen and Josiah Owen. Is Reuben the father of Pleasant? Also mentioned in estate sale is Richard PEMBERTON. I have two Reuben's - one being born before 1775 according to census records of Wilson Co and then the other b. about 1812 - this Reuben m. Frances PEMBERTON in 1837. The HUBBARD were in Wilson Co., Tn as early as the 1820 census. The OWEN's were from Halifax Co., Va and I can provide additional info on them to anyone interested. Pleasant Hubbard moved to Webster Co., Ky where his son Gideon was living between 1870-80 but may have returned to Wilson Co., Tn as I can find nothing further on him or other descendants. A few OWEN's from Wilson Co. can be traced to Webster Co., Ky with this line as well.
