More about Rabbi Moshe Aaron Poliyer of Kobrin's family:

Rabbi Moshe Pallier of Kobrin [1784 - 29 Nisan 1858] was a close follower of the Rebbe, R. Mordechai of Lechovitch and afterwards of his son, R. Noach. In 1833 he became the first Rebbe of the Kobrin dynasty, with thousands of chassidim, many of whom subsequently moved to Eretz Yisroel. His teachings are collected in Imros Taharos. 1

He was a dedicated follower of Rabbi Mordechai the Holy Elder of Lyakhovichi and later of Mordechai's son Rabbi Noah. It was not until 1833 that he accepted the role of Amdur of Kobrin, prior to that he spent most of his time in Lyakhovichi. The book he wrote is said to be the first writings of the teachings of Rabbis Mordechai and Noah of Lechovitz. He is considered the founder of the Slonim Dynasty which was led first by his pupil Abraham of Slonim and then by Moshe's grandson Noah-Naftali of Kobrin. Appears in Otzar haRabbanim as #OR15005 and is cross-referenced to his son's listing Israel Jacob Paler #OR12225. In a story in lchaimweekly.org his yahrtzeit is cited as 1851, not 1858. His last name is given variously as PALER, FALER, PELIER, PELLIER. Some of his descendants are said to have used PALEVSKY which was a surname in Lyakhovichi until the twentieth century.2
