Thank you so much for posting to this family forum.I figure the name is SO unsual that somehow there should be a connection.I have checked the names that you gave me to what I have and there are none listed in my information.
I'll give you what I have on my "FOUNDING FATHER"! His name was John William PLAUGHER/PLOGGER, I figure the last surname was Americanized!He was b. 11 July 1799, I have been told VA., but I have found him NOWHERE in VA. records, d. 9 March 1871, Greenfield, Ill.He married Martha Jane "Patsy" Morris, Kerrs Creek District, Rockbridge Co., VA., 23 September 1823.She was the daughter of William Morris and Anna Gunn of Rockbridge Co., VA., b. 27 February 1802, Kerrs Creek District, Rockbridge Co., VA., d. 27 September 1872, Greenfield Co., Ill.
Since I have no dates for Jacob, I don't know if there is any connection or not.I would love to learn more about him.
Any information sent would be GLADLY accepted, hopefully - we would connect somewhere down the line!!
