I really don't know if this will help, but I'd be interested to see if I can trace lineage back a ways. I am William Poffenberger II (1967 - ). My father is William Poffenberger Sr. (1941 -). We are living in Southern California. My grandfather was Donald R. Poffenberger (192?-1992). He lived in Kingman, AZ for the last 20 years of his life. He was married to my grandmother, Lorena Hartley (193? -). Don and Lorena lived in Beech Grove, IN before moving to CA in 1961. Don had a brother named John who lived in Kentucky and another brother named Pluny (sp?). Pluny was maried to Dot (maybe short for Dorothy). Most of my dad's side of the family is from in and around Indianapolis. That's all I know from memory. I could dig a little and get a lot more, if you're interested. Just send me a reply. I believe you will have my e-mail address once you've read my entry.
