My name is Jason Poff. I have no idea about my branch of the Poff family. I currently live in Christiansburg, VA and believe that most of my clan came from Floyd, VA. I don't know if our family paths will cross but I tought that I would reply to your posting.

I have just starting looking for Poff family history. I was trying to find any relatives that may have been in the Civil War around this area.

I will ask around with my Grandmother and my Dad to see if any of the names you mentioned ring a bell.

The Poff family out of Floyd Co. is quite large. Has quite a history. Please go to the website and look up Greenville Tuggle Poff. You will find many of your relatives. You will find the line that came down from Pa. It is so intriguing.
God Bless You! You can email me at
