We have been looking for your first family group, too.I don't know why I can't find these Poffinbargers/Poffenbargers on Census records!If you have, let me know!
I have the same as you with two exceptions: John (Johann?) Noel Poffinbarger (b. 1839) +married:Hilda Bruwer (b. 1847) (their son) - Noel Poffinbarger (b. 1882 & d. 1954)(where?) +married:Ethel Gerbur (b. 1876 & d. 1945)* (look below) (Noel & Ethel's son) -- Ralph Nolan Poffinbarger** (b. Feb. 6, 1913 & d. July 1977) +married:Leona Nelson (parents:John C. Nelson & Cornelia Tambur)
*From a Rootsweb search, there was a mention of Noel Poffinbarger's marriage to Ethel, but, her maiden name was supposed to be Shawver (& our dates didn't exactly match for her).I wrote to the person who put this in & it was information that had been given to him from someone who had gathered the information 50 years ago.Could Ethel have married a Gerbur before she married Noel?
** From a Social Security Death Information search engine, I found Ralph Poffinbarger (correctly in Arizona).It had the birth & death dates; also, it had that the number was issued in Illinois before 1951.The Arizona address was Mesa, Maricopa Co., AZ.
If anyone can help me with places Noel & John Noel P.lived, siblings, dates, etc., we would appreciate the help!Thank you!!
