I am looking for information on this George Poff who, I believe was born in Virginia. He lived there and at some time lived in North Carolina prior to 1840. He was married twice at least, the last time to Martha Roberts from North Carolina. He died in Dennison, Texas in 1876.

I sure am hoping you find something ! There are a few of us that have been searching for a George Poff in that time frame for a while!!!
We have a Thomas Bueford Poff born 1826 in Harlan Co., Ky.. From a family bible, it says his fathers name was George. There is a George in Harlan Co. Ky. census for 1830, but not after.We were tracking the George you described.
Just speculation but we think he must be a son or grandson of George Poff & Anna Merchant.But at the sites I have found for this family, no one has anything on George Jr..
Do you have any children for your George ? Please say yes !?!?
Can contact me at :

Will keep my fingers crossed !

I have very little info on George Jr. He married Ann Myers in Augusta Co.VA 12/3/1791.
Also a brother Charles married Mary (Polly) Hedrick on 12/27/1832. He had 1 child named George that married Peggy Wilson on 2/7/1810.
As you can see Charles must have been married earlier if he had a son named George that married in 1810. I do not know if any of the names mentioned are connected to the Thomas Poff in Harlan Co. Ky. I can see that George was too popular of a name back then.

George Poff 1790's or 1800 ?

Thank you for responding. I have looked at all the sites with family of George & Anna, but no one seems to have anything on George Jr. or the son of Charles named George.
I have seen conficting info. about that Charles too.One says born in 1804 or something, another born in 1780's.
If...anybody EVER finds more on either George's...I hope they contact me !
Thanks,
