Sorry, I never got around to investigating Sarah Gobelís antecedents.

I know a few interesting tidbits, for instance Phoebe Dillistin (Dillestin) had a brother or cousin who made his living traveling around on trains in upstate New York and Pennsylvania, making arrangements with farmers to ship their produce (mainly apples) to New York City. Snover Layton lived for a time near Waverly, New York, not far from his fatherís farm in northern Pennsylvania. His wives and children were sickly and most died young, mostly from the tuberculosis which infested some herds of milk cattle in that period. Only daughter Edna lived to an impressive old age. She married well and lived in New Jersey in a large house with servants, but there were no children. As for Abby Layton Munn, I looked at the cemetery lists in Bradford Co., PA and itís likely her husband had children with previous wives, but I couldnít trace any offspring to her.
Sally Snover (who married John Layton) was known to her grandchildren as ďGrandmother with curls.Ē I guess she was continuing to style her hair in the sausage-curl fashion of her youth.

Best of luck!
