Chester County

Pennsylvania, USA

Benjamin Buffington was a Private in the Continental Army of 1776 and is a D.A.R. recognized Patriot. Two of his sons, Thomas and George, also served in the Revolutionary War. Benjamin was the son of Thomas Buffington, Jr. and an unidentifiable german lady. (the Yeager book mistakenly named William Buffington and Alice Rupp as his parents - an error that is oft repeated). Benjamin came to the Lykens Valley, PA area sometime before 1814. See the Dauphin County Genealogical Transcription project transcription of the entry relating to Benjamin Buffington. He is buried in a very small family burial area in the middle of a corn field at the base of Short Mountain, Dauphin County (Lykens area), where one monument stands to honor all the family members buried there.
