My wife is a Poffenbarger and from the Elias P. line. On checking my records I have Elias as the son of David and Barbara P. b. 28 Dec. 1817 and baptised 19 April 1818 Altalaha Evang. Luthern Church, Berks Co., Pa. Also father on same church record David P., b June 8, 1792, baptised 12 Aug. 1792 son of Joh. Geo. P. and Margaretha.
Elias married three times 1) Rosanna McCreary, 2)Catherine Martin, 3) Susan DuVal. With third wife he lived in the Dayton,Ohio area
Brother was John Reuben P. Union Army vet. in battle of Harpers Ferry with a Maryland Reg. so he stayed in the Maryland area.
I have lots more on Ohio and Indiana line.
