"Pleasant Ridge as I know it was organized in the head of California Hollow in Bill Golden's house by Bill Golden, Frank Parrott, John Tom Parrott and J. T. Stamper, who was my dad and was the minister. The other ones were the first deacons. The Parrotts lived on Parrott Branch and were Baptist. My dad lived in a house near where the store house Paul Stamper ran his insurance, but the railroad took it.
