Re: Plummers of Warrenton NC Warrenton,& Gwinnett
In Response To: Plummers of Warrenton NC Warrenton,& Gwinnett GA ()
(Ancestry.com incorrectly transcribed his age as 76; all census shows he was born abt 1812)
What this tells you is that both parents were born in NC, and with the oldest child living at home being born abt 1843, that the family had been living in GA since at least that time.
The family is also there in 1850, where Louisa Hawthorn was apparently head of household.
This tells you he was still in GA about 1838.
Additionally, I think this is probably the best record of all, on Find-A-Grave, which has much more there too:
James W. Plummer
Second husband of Louisa (Rutledge) Hawthorn Plummer and son of Hezekiah Plummer and Susannah (Spears) Plummer.
There are a lot of unmarked graves in this Family plot
Of note, the name "Hezekiah" was often interchangeable with "Ezekiel".
If you research him further, especially in census, I think you'll realize where they were from, and it wasn't Warren Co., NC.
Always, completely research the suspected slaveowner, it can give you a lot of info which will enable you to follow your ancestors through their records.
