From SUSERQ@aol.com I realized, when I received your second e-mail, that I had forgotten to mention that William and Samuel are brothers. Samuel's death listing says his parents are Joseph Plummer and Sarah McMurray. The artcle on William Plummer in the Whitley history said William's parents were Joseph and Sarah McMurray. I guess if Delilah is a sibling and you are from her line, that makes us cousins of some sort. There is a Steve Hively married to Rita Mullendore. Rita's mother is Eva Plummer who is my grandfather's sister. I guess folks in Whitley are somewhat interchangable when it comes to those old pioneer families. Susie

I've done some work on Joseph--Samuel--William Plummer in Leonard Lowell Plummer's data base. There are over a hundred of each given name. Anyway he does have Joseph Plummer #362 married to Sarah McMurray #367 and their children as William #8124, b 1805, Jeremiah, b 1806, John, born 1807 and Samuel, b 1808.

William Plummer #8124 m Sarah Crowell #8125 and they had a son, Joseph E Plummer #8129, b 1842, Preble County, OH. There is no mention of Delilah. Also the data indicates that Joseph Plummer#362 came from Bladen County, NC. If that's right, and if Delilah was a daughter, she would have had a hard time being born in MD.

I don't expect that this is anything new nor a help to you. Hopefully you might hear from Leonard in the next few days. Incidentally even though I'm using his data base the #'s might be different because we converted the data at different times from Brother's Keeper to Personal Ancestral File. I checked out Brother's Keeper. Our numbers there would be the same. He has Joseph Plummer III #366, Sarah McMurray (he spelled it McMorry) #371, William #8285 and Sarah Crowell #8266.

In studying what Leonard Lowell Plummer has on the family you are interested in I noticed that he had some notes. His original work
was done using Brother's Keeper. I've converted it to Personal Ancestral File. Neither of these two programs have facilities other
than GEDCOM that I know of for transferring information via Email.

I GEDCOMed his data in to Family Finder which allows for the genealogy report which follows. I don't know whether or not this will
be of interest to you.

Descendants of William Plummer
Generation No. 1

1. WILLIAM9 PLUMMER (JOSEPH8, JEREMIAH7, JOSEPH6, MOSES5, JOSEPH4, JOSEPH PLUMMER3 I, FRANCIS2 PLUMMER, JOHN1) was born Abt. 1805 in Rutherford Co.(Cleveland), NC, and died 1889 in Whitley Co, IN. He married SARAH CROWELL. She was born Abt. 1798.

Notes for WILLIAM PLUMMER:

William was young at the time the family removal to Randolph Co,TN, where he was reared to manhood & whence he later removed to Preble Co,OH. His father Joseph passed the closing years of his life in Franklin Co,MO, he having been a representative of one of the fine old families of the Highlands of Scotland.? Joseph Plummer served under Gen. Jackson in the War of 1812 & took part in the battle of New Orleans. His 4 sons: Jerre, John, William & Samuel.

Child of WILLIAM PLUMMER and SARAH CROWELL is:

i. JOSEPH E.10 PLUMMER, b. Abt. 1842, Preble Co, OH; d. December 14, 1916, Chanute, Neosho, KS; m. MARTHA A. SPANGLER, November 15, 1866, Whitley Co, IN; b. Abt. 1845, Whitley Co, IN; d. Chanute, Neosho, KS.

Notes for JOSEPH E. PLUMMER:

Joseph Plummer was born in Ohio & reared & educated in Indiana, which state he represented as a gallant young soldier of the Union in the Civil war.--was one of the able & sterling pioneers who contributed much to the civic & material developement of this section of Kansas, his familiarity w/which was such that the route he suggested to the engineers in hcarge was adopted as that for the line of the Atchinson, Topeka, & Sante Fe Railway thru Neosho Co Joseph Plummer was reared on the pioneer farm in Whitley Co,KS, and gained experience that well fortified him for his later pioneer activities in Kansas. He received the advantages of the pioneer rural schools, & advanced his education through self-discipline. He was among the first young men in Indiana to volunteer for service in the Cvil war, April 21, 1861, he enlisted as a private in Company E., 17th, Indiana Volunteer Infantry, which was assigned to the 14th Corps of the Army of

Cumberland, its commander having been Colonel Wilder, who later gained rank as general. January 4, 1864, at Pulaski, Tennessee, Mr. Plummer re-enlisted as a veteran, and he was stationed at Chattanooga, as a member of the First United State Veteran Engineers, when the war closed. He took part in 200 engagements, including 37 major battles. In February 1863, he was detailed as a scout, & he thus served until August 2, 1864, he haveing been elected & recommended for a lieutenancy, but the war having closed before a commission was issued. He was in active service four years, 5 months, & 5 days--a longer period than that which could be claimed by any other soldier from Whitley County.

After the war Mr. Plummer continued as a farmer in Whitley County 3 years, and he then set forth w/his wife for Neosho Co,KS. In September 1869, Mr. & Mrs. Plummer crossed the river in a dugout & landed near the prsent site of Chanute, where they passed the 1st night at the home of S.E. Beach. The claim of 160 acres that Mr. Plummer secured is now largely included in the city of Chanute. The erection of this little house of native timber, and 16 x 20 feet in dimensions, nearly exhausted his available capital, & failure of his crop the 1st years caused him to work at splitting rails on shares, & he endured other heavy labors & hardships. When the town of Chate was founded he found employment as a stationary engineer, in which service he continued 9 yrs, while his devoted wife looked after the farm, including the herding of their cattle.

In later years Mr. Plummer gave close attention to the 40 acres that the retained of his original claim, the remainder the land having been sold and being a virtual part of Chanute. August 15, 1900, Mr Plummer became carrier on rural mail route #1 from Chanute, & in this service he continued until shortly beforehis death, faithful & efficient, as he was in all of the relations of life.

Mr Plummer, as a democrat, cast his 1st presidential vote for Stephen A. Douglas, but in 1864, he voted for Lincoln, while in the field in the Civil war. Membrs of his Indiana command had not been permitted to vote, so he VOTED UNDER THE NAME OF JOHN SMITH, and as a member of the Ohio regiment. Thereafter he continued on a staunch supporter of the cause of the republican party. He served two terms as a member of the Grand Army of the Republic, and was one of the original stockholders of the First National Bank of Chanute. In his honor PLUMMER AVENUE was named, and in her attractive home on that avenue

Mrs. Plummer has remained since the death of her husband. (Quotes from: History of Kansas--State & People--Kansas at the First Quarter Post of the Twentieth Century. Written & compiled by William E. Conelley, Sec. of the Kansas State Historical Society, Topeka, 1928, Vol. III, page 1466. (Furn by Jean (Gary) Pinick, 2216 North 154th st, Basehor, KS, 66007, in 1998.

Good Evening Bill!  
    Glad to know that you must be feeling better and being active.
    Thanks for the detailed info. I will be in Washington, D.C. for a few 
days. When I return, I will try to find the connection with DELILAH PLUMMER. 
Already, I noted that William Plummer mentioned is from my branch of North 
Carolina Plummer (Francis Plummer line.) It may take some time to digest all 
of the data. I think I can help.

From: LenPlummer@aol.com To: DrG@execpc.com CC: jwplummer@charter.net, WYNPLUMMER@aol.com Good Morning Donald Gladeless! I finally completed a list of Plummers who settled and lived in Whitley County, Indiana, based on the details you furnished and my own records. In fact William Plummer, born in Rutherford (now Cleveland County), NC, is part of my Francis Plummer line. (Newbury, MA Colony 1635). Please let me know if this helps and if you have anything to add pertaining to the Plummer family. Surely Deliah Plummer fits into one of these Plummer families. It could be that she has a double first name. Thanks for your help. Leonard L. Plummer, 12121 Monrovia St, Overland Park, KS, 66213

He married Sarah Crowel October 15, 1835, daughter of Michael Crowel and Hannah Wells. She was born July 14, 1814 in Preble Co., OH, and died August 22, 1877 in Whitley County, IN.

Notes for William Plummer: From Biographical Sketches - Columbia Township, [Whitley County, IN], Written by Weston A. Goodspeed and Charles Blanchard, and published in Chicago by F. A. Battey & Co., in 1882: "WILLIAM PLUMMER was born in Rutherford County, N.C., April 5, 1805, one of six children born to Joseph and Sarah Plummer. At the age of twenty-one, our subject came West and went to boating, running between Terre Haute and New Orleans. He came to Whitley County in 1832, entered eighty acres Government land [in 1835 -- the east half of the south-east quarter of Section 31], made Union Township his home from 1838 to 1850, and then sold out and purchased his present farm in [Columbia] township, now all under cultivation. In January, 1862, he enlisted in the Fifth Indiana Battery of Light Artillery, and took part in the battle of Perryville, Ky., Stone River, Tenn., and many other engagements. In the Stone River fight, he was wounded; was transferred to the Veteran Reserve Corps, sent to Washington, and served there until his discharge, January 31, 1865.

         When Mr. Plummer came to Indiana, Columbia City was unthought of; there was not a white inhabitant in Jefferson Township, and the country was filled with Indians. October 15, 1835, he married Miss Sarah Crowel, of Preble County, Ohio, by whom he had seven children, five of whom are now living. They were named as follows: Michael C., Joseph E., Mary E., Jacob W., Sarah J., William C. and David L. Michael, Joseph and Jacob were soldiers in the late [Civil] war. Jacob, with whom our subject now lives, served from 1862 to 1865, and was at Chickamauga - where he was wounded; at Mission Ridge; and with Sherman on his march to the sea. He was also wounded while on a guerrilla expedition. After the war, he spent six years in the West and then returned to his home. On September 26, 1879, he married Caroline Londt, and he has been a resident of the county for nearly forty years."
