||I have been told by a true historian that my Wainwright ancestors came
from or through Beaufort County. I was given a name which I can't spell or
pronounce, but it sounded like "Ficus" or some such-Ficus Wainwright as being
possible father of Hastings Dixon, Thomas, Samuel, other? Wainwrights. This
would have been in 1780 or so. There was a Dixon connection, possibly wife's
maiden name. She first or second was also married to a Singleton. Any clues?

||Pleasant (Plesent) WEBB was born about 1765. We suspect that
he and his family may have entered the USA via Beaufort, South Carolina.
He then appears in North Carolina, Kentucky, and Ohio. 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. 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.
