Looking for unknown Pleasant
Unknown Pleasant, thought to be from Ky., married a Mattie Branam, from Tn. and as soon as Mattie got pregnant, he bailed. Mattie divorced him and gave their child her maiden name and baby became my grandfater, James Barney Branam. He was born supposedly in Ky.. James grew up to be a circuit riding minister and first he married a Isabelle Smith and had 4 children. Then he married my grandmother, Emma R. Detweiler and had 3 more children. They all moved to Woodburn, Oregon in the early 1900's. James had been plagued with mental stress and in and out of institutes most of his life. He died in Woodburn, Or. Anyone know anything about this Pleasant family please contact me. Thanks.
