CRESWELL, Julia (PLEASANTS), author, born in Huntsville, Ala., 21 August 1827 ; died near Shreveport, ha., 9 June. 1886. Her father, Colonel James J. Pleasants, of Virginia, removed to Alabama, became secretary of state, and married a daughter of Governor Bibb. The daughter was educated by a superior teacher from the north, and was encouraged by her father to write verses. In 1854 she married David Creswell, a lawyer and planter, who was a district judge of Alabama. Her cousin, Thomas Bibb M. Bradley, a young poet of promise, who died soon afterward, induced her to publish a selection of her poems with some of his own. The volume appeared in 1854, before her marriage, under the title " Apheila, and other Poems, by two Cousins of the South" (New York). After the war Mrs. Creswell taught a village-school, while her husband, who had lost his large estate, resumed the practice of law. She has published an allegorical novel entitled "Callamura" (Philadelphia, 1868), and left many unpublished poems to be issued in posthumous volume.
