The Ploggers Of Rockbridge

If your last name is Plogger you are most likely a descendant of John William Plaugher/Plauger/Plogger, born July 11, 1799 in Virginia, says James W. Plogger and RoseMarie Payton, authors of The Ploggers of Rockbridge: Rockbridge County, Virginia and Rockbridge, Illinois. John William Plauger married Martha Jane "Patsy" Morris on September 18, 1823 in Rockbridge County, Virginia. John and Martha were parents to ten children.
       Mr. Plogger, a native of Rockbridge County, and Ms. Payton, a native of Alleghany County are both descendants of John William Plauger and one of his sons, William Paxton Plogger, a Civil War veteran.
       Their compilation includes over 1900 names in the registry spanning 206 years and ten generations. It includes over 650 marriages and over 475 surnames. The book also includes more than 160 photos of the Plogger family, listings of descendants buried in New Monmouth Presbyterian Church Cemetery and Alone Mill Community Cemetery, both in Rockbridge County, as well as Oakwood Cemetery in Rubicon Township, Greene County, Illinois. Just a few of the surnames are Broughman, Collins, Crist, Floyd, Gaylor, Graves, Hall, Higgins, McCormack, Mozingo, Reno, Reynolds, Smith, and Riley.
       The book will be available in mid July 2005 in a soft cover spiral bound edition as well as an e-Book in PDF format on CD. For more information you may email Mr. Plogger at or phone 865-981-9099. Mailing address is James W. Plogger, 3058 South Hampton Way, Maryville, TN 37803.
