Mt. Pleasant, Jefferson County, Ohio

Les' ancestor Peter Babb lived in Mt. Pleasant, Jefferson County, Ohio in about 1800 and was a member of Short Creek Friends'Society. He is buried in Short Creek Cemetery although we can't find the headstone. Peter's son Aaron moved to nearby Pleasant Grove, Colerain Twp, Belmont County, Ohio and Les descends from that line. This particular Babb line was in this area for over 200 years.

Mt. Pleasant is a small quaint town located in a very pastoral part of Jefferson County, Ohio. It includes the historic district dedicated to its involvement in the Underground Railroad. The Quakers who founded the town were activists in the anti-slavery movement. The Quaker Yearly Meeting House shown in these pictures was built in 1814.
