Seeking information on Betsy Plummer wife of William7 Plummer of the Francis Plummer line.
(Loring8, William7, Robert6, WIlliam5, Aaron4, Joseph3, Joseph2, Francis1)
Also her name could be Elizabeth, as Betsy was a apopular nickname fot Elizabeth at this time.
------
William Plumer/Plummer was the sone of Robert6 Plumer.
William7 Plummer was born 26 May 1787 in Royalsborough, now Durham, Cape Elizabeth, ME. Died 16, Feb 1880 at Dover, ME

Vital Records of Brunswick, Maine 1740-1860, Joseph C. Anderson [2004] p.71

Betsy Plummer (d. 24 Dec 1862, Age 76 yrs, 6 months, 26 days ( b. calculates to 28 May 1786)

In the 1850 census Betsy's birthplace is given as Harpswell, ME

They lived in Athens, ME and Dover, ME

It is not known where or when they died. or were buried.

They had children: Julia, Sarah W., Henry, Caroline P., Lucy, Emma T.
------
So William Plummer was born in Durham, ME. Betsy Plummer was brn in HArpswell, ME.  They were proabbly married about Oct 1808 in Brunswick, ME. They had Loring in Brunswick, ME.  They had Horace in Wales, ME.  They next lived in Athens, ME.  Then it appears they moved to Dover, ME where they both died.

This suggests that Betsy/Elizabeth Plummer may have been from one of these areas.
------
The information I am looking for is:
- I would like to confirm the maiden name of Betsy or Elizabeth Plummer
- I would like to find Betsy's date and location fo birth and marriage
- I would like to find her parent's names, and date of location of birth, marriage and death, and the children in that family.
- Any information other children William and Betsy Plumer may have had.
------

Any help on this family is appreciated
