Rutland Daily Herald, May 1, 1925:
Charles Plummer, 89, of North Main street, the oldest member of Roberts post, G.A.R., of this city and of Center lodge of Masons, died last night at 9 o'clock at the Rutland hospital of dilation of the heart following the amputation of his right leg Monday, from which operation he had rallied. He was born October 26, 1835 in Worcester. He married May 1, 1857, Miss Elizabeth Merrill of Chelsea, moving to Rutland shortly afterward. He enlisted during the Civil war as a member of Company K of the 12th Vermont infantry. On his return from war he became a member of Center lodge in 1865.
He had been a lifelong member of the Methodist church.
He is survived by one brother, George Plummer of California. His wife died in February 1924.
