Pleasant Hannibal Clemens. The only one of Clemens's brothers and sisters for whom no birth or death dates were entered in the family Bibles. He was born after Pamela and before Margaret Clemens, late in 1828 or early in 1829, and died at three months of age. Some confusion exists about his name. Orion called him "Pleasant" (18 May 85 to SLC, CU-MARK), Clemens simply called him "Han" in "Villagers of 1840–3" (Inds, 104), and Annie Moffett Webster called him both "Hannibal Pleasant" and "Pleasants Hannibal" (Webster 1918, 2; MTBus, 44). Both of his names were family names—John Marshall Clemens's two brothers were Pleasant (1800–1811) and Hannibal (1803–36)—but since he was named after his paternal great-uncle Pleasant Goggin (1777–1831), it is most likely that his first name was "Pleasant" (Bell, 26–27; Selby, 77, 79, 93).
