Fourth Generation

77. Pleasant MCBEE was born on 27 February 1809 in Tennessee.36,153

A WorldConnect file, now part of Ancestry, gave a birth for Pleasant McBee as 12 Apr 1806. However, the family Bible, probably entered by his father, states that he was born on Monday, February 27, 1809 - that seems the most likely based on his census age in 1850.

Although Pleasant's name was written in with the marriage records of some of his siblings - no record follows.

Pleasant McBee married Nancy Kelly about 1832. I believe he still lived with his father in 1830 & 1840 as he doesn't appear in a census in Claiborne Co until 1850.
