I am seeking any additional information that you can add to these families. Pleasant (Plesent) WEBB1 was born about 1765. He died between 1830 and 1840 in Ohio, USA. Around 1800 Pleasant and family came in to the Ohio valley from Rutherford County, North Carolina. In 1803 he was in Scioto County, Ohio and was said to be a notorious character, said to be a Tory during the Revolutionary War. A writeup on Scioto County, Ohio states that in 1803 Pleasant Webb murdered a man named Squires at the Licks and the salt boilers drove him away from Licks after his crime. Could this have been the salt licks of Jackson County? Pleasant was in Greenup County, Kentucky in 1820 and in Lawrence County, Ohio in 1830, he did not appear in the 1840 census, so it is believed he died between 1830-1840. Pleasant (Plesent) WEBB and Unknown (Margaret?) BLACKWELL had the following children: Elias WEBB, James WEBB, Hanley WEBB, Aden WEBB, William WEBB, Margaret WEBB, Baker WEBB, Sarah (Sally) WEBB, and Temperance WEBB. Larry D.

I have a Oskywow from 1985 that I found in a box from my own high school days. It seems to belong to a Karen Komaromi, a sophomore at the time. She apparently moved to Wisconsin, where I picked up the book in spring 1986. She would have been an '87 graduate. Any clues would be appreciated. It looks like something sentimental where a return, although late, would be appreciated.
