Re: Plummers of Warrenton NC Warrenton,& Gwinnett

Some suggestions.
Have you done any research on James W. Plummer? That is, look at his census records and determine where he was, and when. You appear to have only looked at the 1860 Slave Schedule, but did you look at the actual 1860 Census for James W. Plummer? It tells you a lot.
First, the 1860 Census shows this:
James W. Plummer -46 - M - FARMER -NC
LUIZA PLUMMER - 53 - F - NC
JAMES PLUMMER - 17 - M - GA
DAVID PLUMMER - 15 - M - 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.
There are many records for this family on Ancestry.com, including a Land Lottery record:
Georgia Cherokee Land Lottery, 1832 about Loveless's
Name: James W. Plummer
Number: 6
District: 22d DISTRICT, THIRD SECTION, CHEROKEE
Residence: Loveless's
County: Gwinnett
Comment: granted previous to the first day of January, 1838

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
Birth: Apr. 7, 1811
North Carolina, USA
Death: Mar. 12, 1879
Georgia, USA

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.
