    PLUMMER William 1-1-4-0-0 Pejepscot Claim (Danville) Cumberland County (now Auburn Androscoggin Co)

    WILLIAM PLUMMER b 14 Dec 1757 (should re-check date?) at Scarboro, Me d 29 Oct 1838, the fourth child & second s/o Aaron Jr & Elizabeth (Skillings) Plummer, m 2 Mar 1785 at Cape Elizabeth, Me, Abigail Jordan b 14 Feb 1760 at Cape Elizabeth, Me. she d 27 Jan 1838. William was a sailor, fisherman, & farmer. At ae 18y he enlisted in the Continental Army at Cambridge, 1775, and served for a time there. In Jan 1776, he was serving at Portland (ME) and was there disharged, following which he was engaged for some time in privateering, a natural service for an accomplished sailor. In later enlistments his records included participation in the surrender of Burgoyne at Saratoga, the cruel winter at Valley Forge and the Battle of Monmouth. In later years, contemplating his war service, WIlliam wrote in his diary under date 19 Dec 1836: " I was to the taking of Buroine & his army I went from Saratogue to Valley Forgue. I went from thence into Monmouth Battle a remarkable hot day and from thence to RI & wintered in providence I was a soldier at Cambridge and a soldier in Casco Bay after it was Burnt by mowet. I went in a schooner Privateer Putnam, Capt Stephen Mashell of Salem (MA). I was shipwreaked on the coast of France and a number of other times and I remin yet Blessed be God for all things - I can't write one hundredth part of my hardship" After the close of the Revolution Mr Plummer settled at Cape Elizabeth, engaged in Farming and continued to follow the sea. On March 2 1784, at Falmouth, he married Abigail Jordan, who was born at Cape Elizabeth 4 Feb 1760, the daughter of Thomas & Ann (Simonton) Jordan. She was of the fourth generation from Rev Robert Jordan. In 1788, WIlliam & Abigail (Jordan) Plummer, with their first two children moved onto the Pejepscot Claim (Danville) ME, Here he built a log cabin which for two years sheltered his family, and in which the third child Thomas Jordan Plummer was born. Having constructed a frame house the family moved into the new home, and the cabin was left as a home of his brother Edward and family. For many years, Mr Plummer cleared more and more land for his farming operation and raised ample crops to provide for the needs of his family, and to sell in the market. He was also active in the raising of cattle, sheep and swine. His market was in Portland (ME) and many entries in his diaries describe his journeys to that city by oxcart. In 1817 having reached the age of 61y Mr Plummer sold one half of his farm to his son Thomas J and for the remainder of his life worked only the smaller area, and continued to live in the original fram house, his son building on his half of the farm. William Plummer was a Jeffersonian Democraft and a public Spirted citizen. He was one of the signers of a petition to incorporate the town. Served as field driver 1802, highway surveyor 1803, 1805 & 1807, tythingman 1806-1807, Hog rieve & fence veiwer in 1807, grandjury list 1809, andselectman 1816-1817. William apparently having had little formal education, kept for many years a careful diary. Many of these diaries still are in existence. There are twenty folios of these records kept with the precision of a ship's log, at which , in the course of sea duty, Mr Plummer likely had some experience. They are carefully sewed together the first recording being dated 20 June 1804 and the late 4 Jul 1837. The compiler of the sea family records has been extremely fortunate in having had the opportunity of making a complete transcription of the diaries and they are a valued record of many historical events in the story of early Danville (ME)
