Home State:( Virginia )

0-2-3-8 John Greenberry Plymale was born in Bedford County, Virginia on October 25, 1837.   On August 11th, 1861 he was united in marriage with Sarah Whitworth.

He was also a soldier during the Civil War, fighting with the Confederate army.   It is told by his descendants that he was with his two brothers, 0-2-3-2 Samuel Plymale and 0-2-3-7 Thomas Perry Plymale when Samuel was shot in the groin by a Yank bullet.  With the help of Thomas Perry Plymale, he carried Samuel in back of the lines to a first aid camp.  Unfortunately Samuel died the next day.

After the death of his parents, 0-2-3-8 John Greenberry Plymale took over the old home place, where he lived for several more years.  Later he moved to a log house some two or three miles from the old home place (which is now located on the lower flood control dam, across the lake from the farm of 0-2-3-2-1-4 Robert Edward Plymale).

John Greenberry Plymale’s wife, who preceded him in death, is buried In the old home place cemetery. He died in 1916 and is buried in the new cemetery on top of a hill a little ways from the house where he died.  The exact location of these cemeteries is unknown to me.
