Samuel Roof - 1819-1880 - Pennsylvania

I am looking for any information on Samuel Roof, his ancestors or siblings. He was born August 29, 1819 married Martha Tawser in 1844 (August, 29?)near Pine Grove Furnace, Cumberland County, PA by Rev. William Morrison. He died November 14, 1880 in Louden (Fort Louden) Franklin County, PA. He worked in the iron furnaces in Fraklin County and perhaps surrounding counties. First confirmed location is in Metal Twp., Franklin Co. census 1850. Martha's (his wife) father was John Mattie Tawser who was in Menallen Twp., Adams County in 1840 and also worked the iron furnaces. Four years before Samuel and Martha were married. Any potential connections?
