He received a Civil War pension in 1915 for the sum of 21 dollars per month certificate number 468,454. He was a private in Company G, 7th Regiment Maine Infantry, in Civil War.The 1840 census for Maine list a John Plant in Brunswick Maine. males under 5=1 males 5-10 = 1 males 20-30=1 females under 5=1 females 5-10=1 females 20-30-=1 I think this could be family of Joseph's father as his obituary states that he was here by 1842 that would mean that his fathers family was here as well and this is the only Plant family in Maine that could be the one. Joseph Plant was 5'10" tall and dark complected and weighed 235 lbs. He married in Oxford Maine, and went into the Civil War from Lewiston Maine. It is odd that he was naturalized September 18, 1880 and his papers read I have been living in this country since coming to Monmouth Maine four years ago (1876). That is odd and it is also odd that he received his civil War Discharge January of 1890 by authority of the Secretary of War , they state that he was Discharged September 21, 1864. also his Civil War record in Augusta Maine states that he left service by Desertion. I have been told that he was a woodsman and met his wife from working in the woods with her brother Joseph Jordan.OBITUARYJoseph Plant died March 7,1921 at North Jay Route 4 .

G .from apr 6 1864 thru aug 21 1864 He was in the Battle of Spothsylvaina Courthouse and The Battle of the Wilderness, later Honorably discharged from the service September 21, 1864.
