I am looking for my Great Great Grandmother Her name is Mary Puffenbarger she married a Puffenbarger possibly a Gerome Puffenbarger c. 1874. I can't tell you much about her other than I found her listed in the 1900 census and it gives her DOB as Oct 1848 and list that she is the mother of 9 children and 8 were living. I did find my great grandmothers (Carrie Puffenbarger) marriage certificate from 1903 and it just list her mother as being Mary Puffenbarger and no father. The only other thing
I have found but it is by no means anything that is fact is a marriage record through the LDS Familysearch.org (VA Marriages, 1785 - 1940 for Highland Virginia) for a Mary Helmark (I think it may be Helmick just was transcribed
wrong) who was widowed and at age 28 she remarried (Dec 26 1872) a Jas. J.Puffenbarger (born 1852)the son of Ad. Puffenbarger and Elizth. Puffenbarger. Oh and it list Mary Helmarks' mother as a Lizzie Simmons (born 1844).
This is a shot in the dark but I'm trying to not leave any stones unturned.
