Pioneer Dies in Obscurity
One of the first white children to see the light of day in Seattle slipped quietly and unostentatiously into the Great Beyond in the Pierce county hospital this week. This man was Frank Plummer, son of Charles Plummer, third Seattle postmaster.
One of a family of several children, Frank lived with his family down on the split at the foot of Commercial st. His father, besides Conducting the post office, was interested in a great many other enterprises. He was a merchant, ran a sawmill and built a dock at the foot of Yesler way.
With the passing of the father, Frank inherited $60,000. Not in accord with his father’s thrift, it is said by Seattle historians that he soon spent his inheritance in typical Northwest fashion and dropped out of sight.
Years later, an old man, he was located living quietly near Kapowsin, on the Tacoma & Eastern railway. He died at about 65 years of age—a typical, picturesque Westerner.
