Mercer County, Ky. has several Plough, Plew families. Will for

Daniel, and Elias. Anderson Co. Death Records: Plough, Daniel,
age 93, d. 8/81853, parents Abraham and Sarah (born in 1760).
Anderson Co. was formed from Mercer Co. Ky. Also, Aldert Plough
and Fanny Plough on 5/10/1820 joined Little Flock Baptist Church,
Sullivan Co. In.. Also a Sally Plough on 7/11/1829. Would
suggest that if Daniel Plough who died in 1853 above was a brother of
Aldert, then parents could be Abraham and a Sarah (?).

was born May 1826 in Ky.
She married Henry Robertson
1853 in Sullivan Co. In, son of James Robertson and Diana Sortor(e)).
He was born December
16, 1826 in Ky, and
died May 06, 1893
in Sullivan Co. In. The only tie for Martha's parents is
that on 1850 Sullivan County, Jackson Twp. is that Martha age 28
is listed as living with Aldest Plew, age 84, male, N.Y., wife
Elizabeth Plew age 60, female, born Ky.. If Aldest married
Elizabeth in 1835, she can not be Marha's mother. If Elizabeth
was her mother, Martha should have a listed a different last name,
simply listed as Martha. I have not looked up Sullivan Co. Census
1840 page 29 to see if Aldert has a daughter proper age for
Martha. 1830 Indiana census Sullivan Co. has a female
proper age for Martha.
Plough was born
in Ky. probably Anderson
Co. was still living in
census: age 74 born in Ky with parents Ky and Ky., born may
They had 15 children with 5 still alive. Her exact date of death
been determined, although she is buried (family tradition) in Hickory-no stone. Martha J
