We have in l860 at Fort Ann, Washington CO, NY a Horace Plue, age 14 and Lucinda Plue age 7 both born in New York and living in the home of Alvah and Lucinda Benton. Lucinda Benton was the d/o Daniel Earle Jr of Whitehall, Wash Co, NY...so there are roots in Whitehall from this family.
Alvah Benton, in 1860, was aged 55 years, born in Massachusetts and his wife Lucinda was 50 years of age born in NY.So perhaps Horace and Lucinda Plue are their grandchildren...but from what daughter we do not know. Perhaps this information may aid you in some further research.
As I too would like a more fuller picture on this family, so should you know or come across any further information about this family.. I would most appreciate hearing from you!
