This is interesting. I have been mainly interested in James since he would be a direct ancestor. But according to
the 1860 Tippah County MS., James is married to Eliza Doyle. They married Feb. 1860 in Tippah County, I found that in the marriage records. So I'm not sure about Missour Parris. If my James was married to her then I guess they must have divorced. Eliza & James Plumley also have listed with them a 2 yr old Mary. Also the census actually has James listed as Jarvis....took me awhile to figure that one out. Shouldn't have but did. They had a son whose name was James Alexander.
Now another interesting fact that I have come across is that they lived in a town called Salem. This town no longer exists. The reason it no longer is around is because it was the home town of Nathan Bedford Forrest. Well everytime the Union forces came thru there they would torch every thing trying to catch up with Nathan. So I even wondered if that is possibly how James might have been killed. Or maybe he ran off, I don't know; it sure is a mystery to me.
Anyhow in the 1870 census Eliza with her 4 children are living with an A.H. Doyle and then in 1880 with an A.B. Doyle. In the 1900 census my James Alexander Plumley Jr. is still living in MS with his wife and 7 children. By 1920 he had moved to Pottawatomie Oklahoma and had 6 other children not mentioned in the 1900 census. This Jr. is my gg-grandfather. My g-grandfather would be Asa Leonard Plumley and my grandmother was Juanita Plumley.

Now for Jonathan, in the 1860 MS census it shows Jonathan married to Rebecca with 2 children. Now if Rebecca is a Doyle could it be possible that James married her sister.

Both Eliza and Rebecca were born in Virginia.
