——
William Plumer/Plummer was the sone of Robert6 Plumer.
William7 Plummer was born 26 May 1787 in Royalsborough, now Durham, Cape Elizabeth, ME. Died 16, Feb 1880 at Dover, ME

Vital Records of Brunswick, Maine 1740-1860, Joseph C. Anderson [2004] p.71
8 Oct 1808 William PLummer and Miss Betsy Plummer, both of Brunswick intend marriage.
Betsy Plummer (d. 24 Dec 1862, Age 76 yrs, 6 months, 26 days ( b. calculates to 28 May 1786)

In the 1850 census Betsy’s birthplace is given as Harpswell, ME
They are buried together in the Old Dover Cemetery at Dover Foxcroft, ME
They had two known children: (Possibly  more) Loring8 Plummer and Horace8 Plummer
——
More on Loring8 Plummer
He married 1st Sally Grant or Sarah Goodrich (b. 25 Oct 1816, d. 9 Sep 1875) about 1832

They lived in Athens, ME. Bangor, ME, and Dover, ME.

Sally GRANT or Sarah GOODRICH

Sally Grant or Sarah Goodrich of Athens, Cannaan, Dover or Skowhegan, Maine or these general areas…

Seeking information on Sally Plummer, wife of Loring Plummer of the Francis Plummer line.
(Loring8, WIlliam7, Robert6, William5, Aaron4, Joseph3, Joseph2, Francis1)

Her given name could be Sarah as Sally was a popular nickname for Sarah at this time. So I am looking for Sally/Sarah Grant or Sarah/Sally Goodrich.
———
Loring Plumer/Plummer was the son of William plumer of the Francis PLumer line.
William Plumer was born in Royalsborough, now Durham, Cape  Elizabeth, ME on 26 May 1787. He lived in Athens, ME and had sons Loring and Horace.

Loring’s name has also been listed as Loving, Loren, Loran and Laren which I believe are errors.

He married 1st Sarah Goodrich, place and date are not known
Sally Goodrich born 25 Oct 1816 in place not known, but the best guess is Athens, Canaan, Dover, Skowhegan or Solon, ME of these general areas as the names and borders of some of these towns have changed since 1816.
She died on 9 Sep 1875 in Dover, ME
———-
In the 1870 census for the town of Dover, ME, Sally Plummer was listed as born in Canaan,  ME
On the death records of her son James W. Plummer his mother was Sally Grant born in Solon, ME
On the death record of her sone Edwin V Plummer his mother was Sarah Goodrich born in Athens, ME

Some records say Mrs. Sally Plumer was born in Dover, ME. I believe this is an error, but it may be worth checking out.

The town clerk in Canaan, ME told me that part of 1816 Canaan is now part of Skowhegan, ME or vice versa.

This is why I say the best guess is Athens, Canaan, Dover, Skowhegan, or Solon, ME or these general areas as the names and borders of some of these towns have changed.
—–
The information I am looking for is:

I would like to find Sally Grant’s parents’ names, and date and location of birth, marriage and death, and this children in that family.

I would like to find Sally Grant’s date and location of birth and marriage.

Any information on the other children of Loring Plumer and Sally Grant may have had.

Another Response to Letter Writing Month

January is almost over, but letter writing and contacting cousins is exactly what I’ve been doing this month.

Back in the 1980s I corresponded with a FLAGG family 4th cousin who I heard was now in her 80s in a nursing home. So I decided I better work on that family again while I could still ask her questions. I did and called her. She is still fine mentally and was delighted to hear from me, and asked to write and visit if I got over to Belfast. I mailed her what I was able to find on the family, to see if she had anything else. I also drew a map of now-discontinued roads in Belmont so she could place for me, just where the old Flagg farm and cooper shop used to be, in relation to the old family cemetery I found in 2010. I plan to visit Belfast this summer. She said she planned to still be there!

I was also working on my LEAVITT family, and a 3rd cousin down in Salem MA from a branch that was totally missing two years ago that left Maine. It started with a cousin finding my website and contacting me on Facebook, and telling me how to reach his mother. I have talked with the two Leavitt sisters in their 80s who told me the old family stories and where they were buried, and giving me enough info to search more online, and also calling cemeteries, newspapers, libraries (and got copies of old obits and articles), and town halls (who gave me contact info from their current voter registration lists), and found the address for their 2nd cousin they had lost contact with, who I have mailed their family charts to. I also asked if any family photos or stories survived in their branch of Leavitts. Still hoping to find old photos. Through these distant cousins, I learned exactly where to find the grave of my gg-grandmother Mary Morgridge Leavitt (1840-1922) in Salem.

Also, a BOUDWAY family cousin on Facebook replies that she is talking with the older people for a major update of their branch that moved from Orono to Northampton MA.

I have always made a point of tracing all the cousin legs forward to find current-day cousins, and sometimes I do get lucky with lots of new family data. I put all my findings on my website when I get time so that more cousins can find me. It’s nice to find new cousins that appreciate the family genealogy. This is fun.
