Sarah Shofner, daughter of Jacob

I am searching for Jacob Shofner and ancestry of
that group. Since Sarah was born in Chambersburg, Franklin Co., Pa in 1817, he
and her mother (unknown name) must have lived
there. Sarah married my great great grandfather Moses Bumgerdner (wrong spelling) in 1835 at Portage Co., later Summit Co., Ohio. Her father, Jacob gave his
permission since she was 14, and her husband
was older. A Joseph Shofner also made his x
as a witness. Jacob is buried near his
daughter and her family at So. Whitley Cem.
in So. Whitley, IN. If there is anyone working on this Shofner line, I would like to
hear from them. I never have seen all these
Shoffner books that were listed in the queries. Thank you for any help you can give
me. Bonita Baumgardner Martin, the Family
Limb Lines Lady of Goodman, MO
