Abraham Plummly, Mary Melissa Evans, Lola Jane Plummly in Illinois

These are the Plummly's I know about:

Walter Campbell married Lola Jane Plummly in Illinois sometime around 1900. They are said to be buried in a cemetery SE of Griffin, IN.

Lola Jane Plummly's father was Abraham Plummly who died (1821/2 - 1894/5). He is buried in the Antioch Cemetery in Cowling, Illinois. The family was said to come from Fairfield, Illinois. He married Mary Melissa Evans in White Co., IL on Sept 7, 1880.

Abraham's other children by Mary Evans were:
a. Emma (Louisa Emmaline, d. 1976)
b. Eva
c. Lucy (Luthie), who became a prostitute after her husband died from falling out of a pecan tree and breaking his neck.

I am told that Abraham remarried after Mary Melissa Evans died (although the date I have for her death is after his). The family says he had the following children with his second wife:
a. Faye Plummly
b. Tiny Plummly
c. Floella Plummly
d. Adie Plummly

The family lived mostly in southern Illinois.

Any information about Abraham Plummly or Mary Melissa Evans would be very much appreciated. The Illinois marriage index lists their date of marriage, but I have nothing about their parents.

Thanks for any help.
