I have just recently started my family research of the Pleasants family name. My father was Richard Carl Pleasants of Waynesboro, Va. His father was Carl Cleveland Pleasants. His father was Richard L Pleasants. Richard L. Pleasants was located in the 1900 census with four children, Carl, Clifford, Arthur and Bertha. I know Richard L. Pleasants was a carpenter and loved working with wood. I have a china press that Richard L Pleasants made. It has been past down from generation to genearation.
My father was one of four children. He had a brother name Roger. He also had two sisters,Lois and Helen. Helen died as a young child (age 9 I think).
Unfortuately, I have little info about the Pleasants family past my grandfather, Carl. I have a vague memory of an aunt of dad's living in Newport News, Va. I have found old photographs with gradaddy and his brother Arthur and sister Bertha in our old family photos.
I hope this info is helpful to someone else. I am looking for further info on this family. I would appreciate any and all help if you have information. I an willing to share any info and photos I have. Please contact me at my email address or my regular address.
