Do you have information in your family files re Benjamin and Eliza SOBER of Huntsburg?

I found this transaction in deed records (my research notes included):
Joseph Scott (wife Polly) and Benjamin Sober (wife Eliza), on 4 Jun 1837, together sold the portion of Lot No. 97 which had been purchased by John W. Scott 10 Sep 1836.

(The most logical way they could have come into possession of this property is by inheritance, as there is no record of them purchasing the land from John W. Scott. What connection might there be between Joseph Scott and either Benjamin Sober or his wife Eliza, and John W. Scott? Also, I need to explore possibility that John W. Scott may have died between 10 Sep 1836 and 4 Jun 1837, although not recorded in Geauga Co Vital Records. Also of interest: this land was sold to Aaron Scott, possibly related, but no definite connection found yet.)

I've been trying for years to identify the ancestors of my 3rd great-grandparents Joseph and Polly (Faunce) Scott, and I wonder if there is a family connection to Benjamin Sober or to his wife Eliza. Joseph may have been from Phelps, Ontario Co NY, or surrounding area, coming first to Ashtabula Co OH in mid-1830's, then to Huntsburg in Geauga Co, where he died in 1855.

They apparently have a connection to the CLAPP families and the family of Israel HUGHES (whose wife was daughter of Joseph and Polly), all of Huntsburg, and the family of a George and Aldina HOLLOWAY, who died in Phelps NY betw 1850-1855 and whose orphaned children (Mary and Adolphus) showed up living with the Hughes/Scott and Clapp families in the 1860 census.

I'm hoping one or more of these surnames will ring a bell with you. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you.
Judy Davison
