0-1 Anthony, 0-3 John, and 0-4 Elizabeth mentioned above all signed their marriage bonds with "his X-mark" indicating that they were not very well educated at the time.  0-1 Anthony learned to write at some point for he signed several deeds in Giles County, Virginia spelling his name Plimale.  Later in Gallia County, Ohio it was spelled Plimon (1825 census) and Plymale. 
0-3 John Plimell signed his will with "his X-mark" so either he was too feeble to write by that time or had just never learned how.
