Biography of John Plimpton
Yates County, NY Biographies





Plimpton, John, came from Massachusetts and settled in Milo about 1796. He had eight children: Esther, who married Enoch Sherman; Rachel, who married Carlton Legg; Moses, who married Betsey Coldren; Aaron; John, who married Harriet Holden; Rhoda, wife of Robert Taft; Polly (or Mary), wife of Chapin Taft; and Henry, who married Mary Ann Worden. All are now dead. Aaron Plimpton, born in Massachusetts in 1788, came with his father's family to Milo in 1796. He returned to Massachusetts in 1810, but came again into Milo in 1812 and afterwards worked in Abraham Wagener's mill at Penn Yan. He bought a farm some years later, and lived and died thereon. His wife was Elizabeth, daughter of George Hiltibidal, and a native of Sunbury, Pa. They had five children, viz.: Daniel, George W., Stephen V. R., Mary E. (Mrs. Andrew Thayer), and Ezra W. Aaron Plimpton died in 1866 and his wife in 1872. He was a prominent Democrat, but not an office seeker or holder, his interest was that of the substantial citizen, and not of the politician. His son, George W. Plimpton, lives on the homestead farm. He was born August 17, 1824, and has spent his life in the town and on the same farm. In 1855 he married Caroline Stone, by whom he has had three children, two of whom, Ida E. and Aaron, are living. Mr. Plimpton is a Democrat by conviction.
