I have been researching my grandfather's lineage, John Beech Earle(s). My records show that William Pleasant Earles b., Feb. 12, 1849 at White Co., TN.; d. Dec. 18, 1901, at Earlsboro, OK., was the son of Pleasant Earles, b., Abt. 1780 at Virginia; d., Dec. 1844 at White Co., TN., and wife (1) Nancy Pirtle, b. Abt. 1807 at Spartanburg Co., SC. Pleasant Earles and Nancy Pirtle were married Abt. 1837 at White Co., TN.
