Plummers of Warrenton NC Warrenton,& Gwinnett GA
I am researching the Slaves of James W. Plummer in Gwinnett Co. Ga. from the 1860 Slave Schedule he was the only owner named Plummer in GA. He was born in NC He owned 14 slaves one was a 6 year old male.
The earliest Plummer that I know without a doubt is the family I am looking for is found in the 1900 Census 3 yo Zeke Plummer is living with his mother Fannie. In Warrenton, Warren Co. GA It states Fannie Plummer is married but no male is listed. We know that Zeke's father's name is Ezekiel Plummer. That information was gleaned from Zeke Jr.'s Social Security application.
Back to the 6yo male slave. Assuming he took the slave owners last name. He should be Ezekiel Plummer. Zeke Sr.
In 1870 Census we find a Zeke Plummer 17 yo in Macon listed as son of 37 yo female head of household named Franas Plummer (Francis).
In the 1880 Census He is 27yo in Milledgeville living with his employer a Blacksmith
And that is where I started.
I believe that Zeke Sr. was looking for his father and had been told he was in Warrenton but not what state. or he forgot.
Can anyone help?
