To add something to what Joanne said, I just checked newspaperarchive for
"fireplug" between 1900 and 1905.
There were nine different articles in six different newspapers. All the
articles were talking about local fireplugs. Nothing too technical.
There were many more hits for "fire hydrant" during the same period, in the
same newspapers. I can't give you the ratio as the search engine seems to
be upset right now.
