Pleasant H BECKHAM was born about one mile north of Barren River in the eastern part of Warren County, July 20, 1883, and is the third of the four sons and five daughters born to Clayton S and Margaret (Ground) Beckham. Clayton S Beckham was born in Barren County, Kentucky in 1806 and was reared a farmer. After marriage he came to Warren County, but in the spring of 1860 moved to Tarrant County, Texas, where he died in October 1864. He was the son of John Beckham, a native of North Carolina who married Rachel Moseley, and came to Barren County, Ky about 1795 or 1800, where he engaged in farming and surveying, in the latter capacity laying out both roads from Bowling Green to Glasgow.
Mrs Margaret (Ground) Beckham was a daughter of Robert Ground, who was born in England and came to Warren County when in his teens; he married Rhoda Long, whose parents were born in Ireland, but who were among the pioneers of Kentucky. Here one of their daughters, a sister of Rhoda Long, was carried off by the Indians.
Pleasant H. Beckham, who was reared a farmer, married September 19, 1858, Perlina J Moulder, a native of Tennessee and daughter of Jacob and Sarah (Evans) Moulder. Jacob Moulder was of German descent; was a farmer and a Baptist minister. Mrs. Beckham died in June, 1879, a devoted member of the Christian Church, and the mother of four children: Robert E. (deceased), Simeon a (deceased), Annie L. and Addie B.
In December 1879, Mr. Beckham married Mrs. Artemisia (Lowe) Fultz, of Warren County. Both are members of the Christian Church. At the age of eighteen, Mr. Beckham engaged in teaching; in 1860 he went to Texas, taught until 1868, when he returned to Warren County and engaged in teaching and farming; in 1884 he engaged in the goods business at Doughty's Creek- better known as Toddy's old stand- and is now one of the thriving and leading men of Warren County.

Notes for JACOB MOULDER:|
Jacob was a Professor of Public Schools in Warren County, Kentucky for thirty years. His son George B Moulder was considered the authority on the Moulder family history. Quoting George C Moulder, author of "The Moulder Family", George B Moulder, of Nashville, Tennessee, in his younger days, took a great interest in our family history and I believe ran it back as far as it will ever go in authentice history without a great lot of hard work and expense."
George W. Moulder futher quotes Jacob, father of George B Moulder, from a letter that Jacob wrote dated 7 May 1897:
"The Moulders are of Teutonic descent, the ancient orthography being Muller, Mohlar, Molder and then Moulder. John Moulder and his wife Susa crossed the ocean about 1760. He leaving behind his sister Meta whose romantic adventures with the great musician Grofstock has found a place in history. One of the brothers, Otford Muller, who was a great musician, remained in Germany. As already stated, John and Susan crossed the water, settled first in North Carolina and finally in Tennessee, twenty four miles north of Knoxville and died there. His widow Susan survived him many years and my uncle David Evans remembers her very distinctly. They are now sleeping side by side at the old family burying place at the farm now owned by Nelson Yeadon near Traswell, Tennessee. They had sons Jacob, Felta or Valentine, and Henry. The family of Jacob migrated northward through Ohio and Indiana. I have never seen any of his descendants. The people of Henry crossed the Mississippi at or near Memphis and peopled Arkansas. I have seen three distinct branches of his family. Samuel, having settled near Carthage, Tennessee. They are just like the Moulders in features and faculty. Felta, or Valentine, remained near the old homestead, was a Justice of the Peace for 40 years and a very popular Baptist preacher. See his name in Benedict's History of the Baptists 1848. He was drowned in the Clinch River, Tennessee in 1826. He was in the water lodged upon a grape-vine still alive for twelve days before the body was found, and was buried at the high water mark in obedience to the then Eistenge law.
In 1878 I made a pilgramage to fatherland and saw the graves of John and his wife Susan also that of my Grandfather Felta at Sharp's Chapel, Tennessee. Grandfather Felta's wife Levina was a Penn. She survived her husband twenty seven years but her agony of suspense over the loss of her husband demented her mind and she remained partially though harmlessly deranged until her death. She was not buried beside her husband, but at the cemetery, now a very large one, at the old homestead of Valentine Moulder, three miles north of Maynardville, Tennessee. A State road runs over my grandfather's grave. Mrs. Sharp who knew the location came very near failing to find it. I found both grave stones, that of the foot being six inched below the surface while the head stone was visible. I did not replace but I set a stone four feet high at the head with his name roughly carved on it. Grandfather Felta's wife Levina was a direct descendant of William Penn.
They left twelve children, six girls, Selina, Polly, Susan, Vina, Bettie, and Rebecca, six boys, George W, Felta, John, Rufus, my father Jacob and Silas. The first second, fourth and sixth migrated to Camden County, Missouri in an early day where they propagated a numerous progeny, many of which being of wealth and influence. All the girls married in Tennessee. We have a swarm of relatives there who are able and are willing to entertain relation and who are proud of their noble ancestry."

Second son of Felta of 1815. David was two years old when he came ot Camden County, Missouri with his parents in 1842. He walked 3 1/2 miles to attend school.

He was the oldest merchant at Linn Creek. He sold goods then years at Richland, Pulaski County, Missouri. In 1887 he bought the old Governor McClurg mansion, which was located high on a hill overlooking the Linn Creek and Osage valleys. Later, the two valleys became part of the Lake of the Ozarks and the property was surrounded by water. He also owned a 300 acre farm. He was elected Treasurer of Camden County in 1874 and re-elected in 1876. He resigned this position in 1877 on account of his removal to Richland, Pulaski County, Missouri. David was a member of the Masons and a staunch Democrat.
