  • Notes 
    • Birth: Pleasant b. 1836 is oldest child of Lieghton and Orra Ewell, states a letter from GW Ewell, Ref. #13, to Wm T Ewell.
      Also see FG notes of probate records of 1851 and 1853 of his father, Leighton Ewell listing Pleasant as a minor child;

      Burial record list birth as 18 Nov 1835. death 8 Oct 1901. He died at Gaston while enroute to Portland for treatment. Don't know what he was being treated for. Researcher Tracy Tallman e-mail 20 Jul 2006

      VaLene believes that he was born in Ray Co. MO because Land rec. of Ray Co. indicate that Lieghton, his father, was there from 1834 thru 1836.

      1850, Pleasant Uel, age 15, and Mary Uel age 13 in Holt Co MO with John and Mary Hays--Sylvester Hays' parents, America Ann Ewell's future husband. (B. 1836)
      1. The 1850 census for John Hays can be found online at the Holt County, Missouri Gen Web site at: <http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~mackley/Mo1850Jpegs/Holt50/HoltP0192.jpg> The census image shows a Pleasant Uel (15) and Mary Uel (13), both born in Missouri, living in the John Hays household. From Rick Osborn (cousin of Gene Hays)

      Ben Ewell, son, 14 years old, residing at Starbuck, Washington


      1904, a letter by R.L.Ewell states: "My grand-father married a second time, left some children by that marriage one of them Pleasant H. lives in California, but I don't know where."


      I believe that this Pleasant H Ewell to be the same child found as the minor child of Lieghton Ewell in the probate records of Lieghton's death. However, if this is true, the birth year of 1831 in the 1900 census is incorrect. Pleasant wouldn't have been a minor at the age of 20 or 22 years old. In the 1880 census, it lists P. H. Ewell birth year as 1836. Being born in 1836 would mean that by 1851 or 1853 he would be a minor and matches the birth year given by GW Ewell.
