    I am seeking information on the parents of my gg-grandfather Pleasant CRENSHAW, born SC 1813 or 1815. His 1st wife Elizabeth was born about 1810 in GA. Because of the naming of the children I suspect Elizabeth maiden name or Pleasant's mother's maiden name to be DARVEL. I am also suspect of the names William, James, Anel, & Pleasant as possible fathers. Pleasant CRENSHAW had migrated to Neshoba County, MS by 1843, when his oldest child was born. I suspect that he was living in Alabama with relatives in 1840. I believe that he may be associated in some way with either the HOUSTON, GULLY, or CALCOAT families.
