Plummer Cemetery
Limestone County, Texas

Lat: 31° 34' 20"N, Lon: 96° 28' 20"W

Contributed by Bruce Jordan, Sep 30, 2004 [bjordan@glade.net]. Total records = 146.

From Groesbeck take Highway 14 north, turn right on FM 1245, go 3.2 miles to the end of road. The road becomes LCR 420. Stay on LCR 420 keeping to left until reaching LCR 454. Turn left on LCR 454. Go 2 miles, pass Webb Chapel Cemetery. Plummer Cemetery is on the left. It is easily seen from the road.

Luther Thomas Martin Plummer and his wife, Rachel Parker Plummer moved to Fort Parker with her family from Illinois. Rachel and their son, Platt, were captured at the famous massacre at Fort Parker in 1836. After some time Luther heard that Rachel was in Pecos, Texas and sent $150.00 for her ranson. She arrived back in Limestone County on Feb 19, 1838.

Rachel gave birth to their third child on Jan. 4, 1839. Rachel and the baby died about two months later. They were the first burials in the Plummer Cemetery. She had given birth to the second Plummer child in captivity. It was killed by the Indians.

A cemetery association maintains this cemetery now, and it is still accepting new burials.

These records were compiled from a reading I did when I walked this cemetery in Spring of 2004. It includes all existing & legible headstones. Listings followed by an asterisk * are markers not located in 2004 but were listed as being part of the cemetery in the late 1970’s.
