(1) Matthias CHITWOOD was born in 1681 in England, and married Mary KEY, daughter of Richard KEY, who was born Jan 12, 
1684/1685 in Northumberland, Co. Va. Mathias died in 1754 in Powhatan Co. Va., Cumberland Co., Virginia,
USA and was buried in Jan 1754.
Notes for Matthias CHITWOOD:
Scott Co. Historical Society. This is on pg. 48. Where his Will is copied. His son Richard was executor.
In the book "Chitwood Family" by Jean C. Tombaugh, printed 1976 by Tombaugh Publishing House of Rochester, Indiana,
the author presumes that Matthias is a grandson of Thomas Chetwood, an immigrant to Lancaster CO, VA, based on the
geographical location of Matthias' marriage records (Northumberland CO, VA). The author guesses that Matthias is the son of
Berkeley (son of Thomas)or another son, but is looking for more info on his parentage. The book also states that
his will was proved on Jan 27, 1755 in Cumberland, CO, VA under the spelling of Marthias Cheatwood and that "in 1695 Matthias
was living with Mrs. Elizabeth Banks, Northumberland CO.,VA - his age being given as 14. Certificate was given
to George Espridge and assigned to Mrs. Banks for 450 acres of land for transporting nine persons from England,
including Matthew, or Matthias Chitwood."

Hello Joe,

I see that there is some confusion in your Pleasant Chitwood lines. Dunno if you knew that there are several Pleasant's early on in Matthias' line. Think they liked the name or something.
<shrug> So going to try and catch you up to speed a little. Hope it helps you out.
Pleasant Chitwood (Matthias (1st) Richard (2nd) James & Martha WHITE (3rd and they had 9 children, Pleasant was the #2 child)):
Married Sarah COWAN on 28 September 1797. (You have Barabra Barns, wrong Pleasant, down further will show you where that Pleasant's line is) they had 11 children:
James
David
William
Nancy
John
Daniel
Polly
Hugh C.
Isaac
Shelby
Pleasant (yes another one, this one married Polly THOMPSON)
Sophronia

Pleasant Chitwood (Matthias (1st), Captian James Chitwood (2nd)married Alice CARPENTER and they had
7 chidlren, Pleasant being the 6th child):
James
Moses
Shadrack
Joshua
Joesph
Pleasant (this is the Pleasant that married Barbara BARNS on 28 Feb 1792)
Amos

Pleasant Chitwood (Matthias (1st), Captain James Chitwood (2nd) married Barbara BARNS and they
had 6 children:
Richard
William
Elizabeth
Daniel
(Unknown) Daughter
Charles

Research notes on Captain James CHITWOOD (Pleasant's Chitwood father, the husband of Barbara BARNS):
Capt. James Chitwood was a Tory during the Revolutionary War and was captured and hung after the battle of King's Mountain, NC.

"The names of the comdemned Tories were---Col. Ambrose Mills, CAPTAIN JAMES CHITWOOD, Capt Wilson, Capt Walter Gilkey, Capt. Grimes, Lt. Lafferty, John McFall, John Bibby,
and Augustine Hobbs. They were swing off (the Gallows Oak) three at a time, and left suspended at the place of execution.
According to Lt. Allaire's account they died like soldiers---like martyr's in their own and friend's estimation. "These brave but unfortunate Loyalists," says Allaire,
"with their latest breath expressed their unutterable detestation of the Rebels, and of their base and infamous proceedings; and, as they were being turned off, extolled their
King and the British Government. Mills.
Wilson and CHITWOOD doed like romans.....The poor Loyalist leaders had been left swinging from the sturdy oak upon which they had been executed. No sooner had the
Whigs moved off, than Mrs. Martha Bickerstaff, of Biggerstaff, the wife of Capt. Aaron Bickerstaff who served under Ferguson, and been morally wounded
at King's Mountain, with t he assistance of an old man who worked on the farm, cut down the nine dead bodies. Eight of then were buried in a shallow trench, some two feet deep;
while the remains of Capt. CHITWOOD were conveyed by some of his friend's on a plank, half mile away to Benjamin Bickerstaff's where they were interred on a hill still used as a
grave-yard." Taken from the book "Kings Mountain and its Heroes", by Lyman C Draper.

Capt James Chitwood would have been the Uncle of James Chitwood, who was one of the founders of Winfield Formerly Chitwood) TN. It is probable
that he is named for his Uncle.

Resource for this information: Julie Chitwood

"Captian James and two of his sons Shadrack and Moses, were arrested after the Battle of King's Mountain and tried for treason. All were convicted but only James was executed by hanging;
Shadrack and Moses were granted 99 year reprieves. There are several accounts of this incident in print, the most notable is found in "King's Mountain and Its Heroes" by Lyman C Draper.
According to this account James was buried in Aaron Bickerstaff's family graveyard near the "Gallows Oak" from which he was hung."

Resource for this information: Susan Lynn Boone

That about does it for the Pleasant's of the line. I hope it helps you out. I know I got very confused until Julie Chitwood and Judith Knight set me straight.
They are descendants from both of the Pleasant's.
Write me if thers anything else I can help out with.

Take care,
Kimberly

Letter from Lucky & Yoe,
Succesors to Logan & Lucky,
Attorneys at Law,
Knoxville, Tn Nov, 19th 1886
Mr Riley Philips,
Huntsville, Tenn.
Dear Sir:
I trust you have, before this, received safely the body of Nannie, your daughter.
I found on my return home, Wednesday evening, that it would be impossible to send by press as directed by your telegram,
to Helenwood, as it could not leave here until Thursday morning at 6:30 o'clock not connect with Con.
Southern R. R. train; could not leave Chattanooga in all probability until Friday morning as the night train on that road does
not stop at Hellenwood so we were in formal.
I decided it was best to ship by Buckeye - on Knox. & Ohio Road & thence by wagon. Also we could not ship by Express.

Notes for Joseph (Joe Tucker) PHILLIPS:

!This is the Authors Grandfather, who he knew well, as he didn't die
until 1959.
Several things I remember about my Granddad Phillips were his visits to my parents house in Tazewell, where he slept in the guest bedroom in the four
poster handmade cherry bed, made by my Uncle Doug Wilson. Granddad was a very loving person and usually enjoyed a good joke. He was a fisherman in his
earilier years and liked going with my father and uncle. He chewed tobacco and would keep a spit cup by the bed. He enjoyed a good cigar on occasion and
glad that my brother George remembered to send him some, Havana, if I remember correctly. I remember an accident he had once while staying with us and
attempting to return to Scott County on a bad winter day. He came back to the house with a cut on his head. I remember his trips to Texas with my
father, where he owned a farm, 360 acres. He had bought the farm along with Roberta Carr, Park A. Carr's wife sometime maybe in the early 1900's. Mrs. Carr
and her husband had owned the farm since the late 1800's. It was located near Plainview, Texas. Just before selling the farm, that my Granddad had
bought along with my father from Mrs. Carr, they had drilled for and struck a water well and had two crops of cotton. They had drilled two wells, the first
hit a pocket of natural gas, which they capped and moved on to another section where the water was struck. They got in the neighborhood of $80,000.00 for the
farm and retained about 1/8th the minieral rights. I have done extensive research on the ownership of these rights and whether any drillings have been done.
There are two articles I wrote for the Claiborne County Historical Society regarding my Granddad's exploits while an Agent with the ATF, Prohibition
Division of the Treasury Department. I believe the Winter 1992 Edition and the Spring 1993. Many articles from the Lousville Courier and papers in
Memphis and Chicago are among the items in my possession. Among his other accomplishments were his first job with the Cumberland Chronical, 1890's,
his his serving in the Spanish American War, the Phillipians and in China during the Boxer Rebellion. He returned and married my Grandmother, had the
first power and light company in Claiborne Co., the first motion picture theater, was County Road Commissioner was Captain of the local Volunteer malitia, was
a U.S. Marshall, Pinkerton Agent and lastly Deputy Chief Adminstrator over Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee for the U. S. Treasury Department's Prohibition
Service. The Commercial Hotel that was owned and operated by Abner Hansard a cabinet maker, the fifth house was the only building facing Main Street on the next
block. It was Graham's lumber house. Since that time it has been turned around and is now used as a store house by Joe Phillips. The sixth house, Buchanan
Brothers large store building occupied the southwest corner of the third block.
The tenth house stood on the site of the Shell Hotel and was a large brick store owned by J. L. Evans and Brother.

"James first had a land grant in Virginia; then he came to NC and settled near Lawndale between Mabel and Know Creeks. His NC land grant
from George III reached from Bellwood to below Sandy Plaines Church (20 sq mi). James, a Tory, was captured at the battle of Kings
Mountain and was brought back to near Sunshine or Gilbertown and sentenced with 39 others to be hanged. They were hanged in threes,
and he was the ninth man to be hanged." - Ben Jenkins (son of Lawson) as told to Virginia Greene DePriest

"Capt. James Chitwood was a Loyalist who was taken prisoner at the battle of King's Mountain in late September,1780.
The victoriouspatriots were itching for r evenge, and decided to stop and hold whatwas termed a "drum head trial" the fir st night the
prisoners werebeing marched from the battle site. A score a local folks who hadtaken the loyalists side were convicted and sentenced
to die. Nine were indeed hung, when high officers interrupted the proceedings and put a halt to the executions.
Eight were buried in shallow graves bythe side of the road immediately after the executions were stopped.The body of James Chitwood
was carried by some local sympathizers tothe crown to their own family burial ground about a mile away andgiven a real grave.
His sons were arrested by patriot forces andgiven several choices - take their father's political side and face exile or
take the Oath of Allegiance to the patriot cause and be ontheir way. They chose to take the Oath, and left North Carolina forless
and settles lands further west."........sent to me in e-mail byJane Dresser "Capt. James Chitwood was a Tory during the Revolutionary
War and wascaptured and hung after the battle of King's Mountain NC. "The namesof the condemned Tories were --- Colonel Ambrose Mills,
Capt. JamesChitwood, Capt. Wilson, Capt. Walter Gilkey, Capt. Grimes, LieutenantLafferty, John McFall, John Bibby, and Augustine Hobbs.
They were swung off the Gallows Oak, three at a time, and left suspended at the place of execution. According to Lieutenant
Allaire's acocunt, theydied like soldiers --- like martyrs, in their own and friends'estimation. "These brave but unfortunate
Loyalists', says Allaire,'with their latest breath expressed their unutterable detestation ofthe Rebels, and of their base and
infamous proceedings; and , as they were being turned off, extolled their King and the British Government, Mills, Wilson, and Chitwood
died like Romans.....The poor Loyalistleaders had been left swinging from the sturdy oak upon which they hadbeen executed. No sooner
had the Whigs moved off, than Mrs. MarthaBickerstaff, the wife of Capt. Aaron Bickerstaff who had served underFerguson, and been
mortally wounded at King's Mountain, with theassistance of an old man who worked on the farm, cut down the ninedead bodies.
Eight of them were buried in a shallow trench, some two feet deep; while the remains of Capt. Chitwood were conveyed by some
of his friends, on a plank, half a mile away to BenjaminBickerstaff's, where they were interred on a hill still used as agrave-yard.
