0-1-6-12 Joseph Plymale was born in what is now Wayne County, West Virginia on August 28th, 1848.  On April 1st, 1869 Joe Plymale and Leonora E. Sprangler were united in marriage in Gallipolis, Gallia County, Ohio.   Leonorea was the daughter of John Sprangler and Mary Loucks and she was  born in Gallia County, Ohio on January 30th. 1840.  Her mother was also born in that state and county, but her father was born in Cabell County, WV (then Virginia).

Leonorea Sprangler, was a great grand-daughter of the old Revolutionary War soldier William Loucks, who is said to have fought beside George Washington.  It is also said that one time he volunteered to go behind the British lines to get powder from a magazine.  This act turned out to be a deciding factor in the ensuing battle.   George Washington supposedly gave him a signal by waving his hat from atop a stump when he thought William Loucks would have the best chance of coming back through the British lines with the wagon half-loaded with powder.
