I am researching the burials at Lambert Cemetery, Columbus township, Bartholomew County, Indiana.
In this small cemetery we have stones for 4 POFFENBARGER children:
William H., died 9/14/1853, son of J. & S.A. Emeline J., died 8/22/1854, dau. of J. & S.A. David P., died 8/31/1855, son of J. & S.A. Edward F., died 3/18/1856, son of J. & F.
From the 1860 Census (listed as Paffenberger), death records, and the internet I have pieced together the following family outline:
John Poffenbarger (ca 1817, Maryland) married to Lydia ? (ca 1831, Maryland) had the following children:
