Journaling:
Nancy was my great-great grandmother, and one of the reasons I know so much about the family history, as she was very interested in genealogy, and kept track of the family enough to assist H.B. Plumb, who published two editions of his book on the American Plum/Plumb family and their origins in England, “The Plumbs, 1635–1800.” Copies of both editions were passed down in the family, and came to me from my aunt. I suspect she had much to do with the information contained in her own obituary, which is wonderfully specific and valuable, even if there is one typographic error!
Nancy’s photo (the only one I have of her, makes her look rather stern and straight-laced, which I suspect may be an accurate portrayal of this Yankee woman. But I am indebted to her for her legacy of facts and passion for genealogy. The following information was extracted from her obit.
Nancy Newell North Plum was the daughter of Selah North and Amna Newell North and was born in Middletown, Conn., October 21, 1814. She died at the old family home in Cuyahoga Falls on Thursday, May 16, 1901, aged 86 years, 6 months and 26 days, and is buried at Oakwood Cemetery in Cuyahoga Falls with her husband (their stone is pictured). Nancy had been a member of the Methodist Church since early girlhood when she sang in the choir of the old church in Middletown with Henry Plum who afterward became her husband. She was a descendant of John North who came to America from England in 1635. Her grandfather, Simeon North, had a gun factory in Middletown and invented and made the first percussion guns, and manufactured guns for the U.S. government. He was also a Revolutionary War soldier.
On October 11, 1835, Nancy married Henry Plum, also of Middletown, Conn., and the following year they moved to Ohio, settling in the Western Reserve at Monroe Falls, where so many from their native town had preceded them. They moved to Massillon in 1844 where they lived four years, then returned to Summit county and made their home at Cuyahoga Falls where they have been identified with the growth and interest of the town for over 50 years. Their home (pictured here) sat across the street from the Methodist Church and now houses a law office.
Mrs. Plum is survived by her aged husband and a sister, Mrs. Julia North Gaylord of Monroe Falls, and two brothers, John North of Rocky Hill, Conn., and Selah North of Rockport, Illinois. Ten children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Plum, seven of whom are living: Henry Wilbur and William Rattle Plum of Chicago, Mrs. Mary Fogle Jewitt, Mrs. W. F. Holloway, Mrs. R. H. Lodge, Mrs. F. R. Hale of Cuyahoga Falls (my great-grandmother) and Mrs. Hosea Paul of Cleveland.
Seventeen grandchildren and one great-grandson are living, and five of them acted*as pall bearers at the funeral. They were Dr. E. B. Lodge of Cleveland, W. R. Lodge, George H. Lodge, Louis B. Lodge and John F. Johnston of Cuyahoga Falls, and a cousin, Edward Hale, Jr. of Akron.
