There is ANOTHER PAFF/PUFF family up at WALLKILL in Ulstewr County NY that preceded them by some 20 years. Peter PUFF or POFF or PAFF is listed in New York Court records as early as 1763 in Wallkill, Ulster County. He is Peter PAFF Senior and had a son Peter PAFF Jr. There is quite a large group of PAFFs up in Wallkill, Ulster County, NY, that are descended from this Peter PAFF/PUFF/POFF.


I believe this Peter Puff may be the Peter Poff/Puff who left Ireland for NY in 1760. His wife was named Anne. They were Palatines who had emigrated to Ireland, but were unhappy there, so they moved on to New York. There are still some Poffs in Kerry Co., Ireland.
