* The Samuel Plummer of Plummerville, Arkansas Home Page*

Updated May 20, 2002


Samuel Plummer was born in Virginia in 1800 or 1801. He was orphaned and taken into the home of Patrick Rogers, a wealthy Washington leather merchant, for whom he worked. In 1824 he left Washington to work for Foster and Barton in Boston. He left Boston in 1825 and settled at the present site of Plummerville, Arkansas. The old Fort Smith to Little Rock Stage Coach Road ran through his land and in front of his cabin. The cabin, with its later additions, became known as Plummer Station. This cabin is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is occupied to this day having stood for 169 years. Samuel had five sons and lost four during the Civil War. His son Samuel received the southern equivalent of the Medal of Honor for his actions at Chickamauga on September 20, 1863 at which time he was wounded. The younger Samuel was taken to Atlanta where he died of his wounds on December 22, 1863. He is buried in Atlanta in the cemetery where Margaret Mitchell, the author of Gone With the Wind, is buried.
