Hi Karen,
I don't know - that's the million dollar question. All I know is that John was born in Shippensburg, Cumberland Co., PA and married Sarah J. Stoffer/Stouffer - most likely in Cumberland County, but I don't know for sure.
My hope is that someone will recognize the names that I listed and contact me...
