George Buffington, I
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Feb. 8, 1759
Death: Mar. 26, 1830

George was born in Bradford Township, Chester County, PA and married Barbara Hoffman on September 2, 1782, and together the had the following children:

Elizabeth, born 12/23/1782, married George Lubold
Isaac, born 8/8/1784
Jacob, born 5/16/1786
Mary, born 7/26/1788
Susanna, born 8/25/1790, married first Jacob Fisher
married second Jacob Yeager
Rachel, born 4/3/1792, married Christopher Lark
George II, born 5/12/1795, married Catherine Yeager
Catherine, born 2/15/1797, married John Yeager
Margaretha, born 8/27/1799, married John George Daniel
John, born 1/7/1804

Barbara and her husband George were probably buried where the John Peter Hoffman memorial stone is now located,at the base of Short Mountain in Lykens, PA. It looks as though, any stones that remained from this small farm cemetery into the 1900's, were relocated to the Hoffman Church Cemetery (St. Peter's now).

Because George served in the militia during the Revolutionary War, I am going to try to have the U.S. Dept. of Military Affairs issue a replacement stone for this grave, as I did for George's brother, Thomas, buried in the Harrisburg Cemetery.
