Matter of Dauphin Co., PA

Classification: Query
Lewis Henry Shoffstall/Schoffstall/Imschoffstall married Maria Matter. Feel his wife Maria may be from the Lykens Twp., Dauphin Co., PA area. I find her living in Frailey Twp., Donaldson, PA in the 1850 census with her mother Mary Matter. Maria was born 6/20/1826 and died 2/26/1877 in Frailey Twp., Donaldson, PA. By 1860 she is married to Lewis H. Shoffstall and having 2 children, son Wesley and Aaron. She is buried beside her husband Lewis H. and her mother Mary who was born 5/9/1801 in PA; died 9/30/1865 at the Salem Union cemetery, Donaldson, PA. Several families from the Lykens Twp., Gratz area removed to Frailey Twp., Donaldson by 1850. Lewis H. & Maria Matter Shoffstall are my husband's 2nd great grandparents. Any help in identifying who Maria Matter's parents are is appreciated.
Thanks! Cheryl
