Pleasant’s brother Stephen

One of the enjoyable parts of posting this genealogy is the interaction it’s stirred up with others.

As I’ve described throughout, genealogy research includes a great deal of swapping with other researchers or family members. Sometimes others have a piece that allows a big breakthrough, and sometimes it’s a colorful insight.

Here’s a newspaper clipping relayed by Diana Stasko showing Pleasant’s brother, who relocated from North Carolina to California.

Note, too, the reference to his mother as Delilah Hunt, reflecting the confusion of her maiden name, which was sometimes also given as Rayle rather than its actual Britton.

The portraits of George and Delilah (the “right” noted in the photo album) will be included in the chapter on them.
