States: Pennsylvania: Dauphin
I haven't done a lot of research in that specific part of Pennsylvania myself so someone else might know better. Here is what I suggest.
Going to the State Archives and State Library in Harrisburg might help (in your case the Archives more so than the Library). Lancaster County Archives would have the old court records for Dauphin County before it was formed. Try the Dauphin County Courthouse, specifically the Register of Wills, Orphans Court and Recorder of Deeds. Check online to see what they have available for either county. The Lancaster County Historical Society and Dauphin County Historical Society will cover all of each county. Depending on what part of Dauphin County they were from try the Hershey-Derry Township Historical Society, Paxtang Historical Society and Hummelstown Area Historical Society.
