Biography

Pleasant Martin ... He passed away in July, 1825 which was written in a deposition taken from George Ennis, his brother-in-law, taken when Pleasant Martin's estate was sued by creditors of ex son-in-law James Ball Davis who deserted his daughter Sarah Ann and their small son. Pleasant went to Tennessee in 1822 to see James Ball Davis about a divorce. He returned and said James Ball Davis was about to be married. Pleasant also said he would never pay James Ball Davis' debts.

Pleasant Martin (Bachelor) and Betsy Ennis (spinster) were married November 23, 1791 in Amherst Co, Virginia.
