PLUMMER CEMETERY
Luther Thomas Martin (L.T.M.) Plummer and his wife Rachel (Parker) arrived in what is now Limestone County in 1834. They received a Mexican land grant for 3,321 acres in this area the next year. In 1836, Rachel, her son James, and her cousin Cynthia Ann Parker were kidnapped by Comanches. After Rachel was returned in 1838, she and L. T. M. had another son, Wilson, in January 1839, but Rachel died in February and the infant in March. Upon Wilson's death, L. T. M. set aside one acre of land for a family cemetery. Since then, over 100 Plummer descendants have been buried here. 1991
