John Poffenbarger, of Washington county, Maryland, was a prosperous man and skilled artisan. He operated such large blacksmith shops and their forges gave out such volumes of smoke, that the village built up around his works was called Smoke Town, which is yet extant. In his will he appointed his son Henry as one of the administrators of his estate. No marriage records being then recorded in Maryland, we find by his will that his wife's name was Mary, maiden name unknown, as is disclosed in the previous records of the family where for three other generations the wife was Mary, surname before marriage unknown.
