Frederick Fetterhoff, Executer to Michael Bower's will

I'm trying to fnd the parents of my 4th great grandmother, Eve Boyer. In my search, I have come across a website that mentions my 5th great grandfather, and Eve's brother. My 4th great uncle, Nicholas Boyer (is mentioned, along with my 5th
great grandfather, Frederick Fetterhoff. Frederick is listed as an executer of his will.

Here is my line beginning with Frederick. I would appreciate it if you
can tell me if Frederick and Michael are related, and more about the
family connection.

1. Frederick Fetterhoff b. August 6, 1765, Lebanon Two, Lancaster,
Lancaster Co. PA, died July 16, 1837, Halifax, Dauphin Co. PA.
2. Philip Fetterhoff b. Bethel Twp, Lancaster, PA, September 2,
1788-died September 4, 1833, Halifax, Dauphin Co, PA. Buried St
Peter's Fetterhoff Church Cemetery.
Philip married Eve Boyer. She was born June 27, 1792,
Pennsylvania-died June 11, 1839. Married Philip Fetterhoff 1811.

I hope you can tell me if Michael Bower is Eve's father. If there is a
connection, I would like more information about the family. But, if
Frederick was listed as a will executer, shouldn't it say father in
law? (not brother?)-see website. And, why the change from Bower
to Boyer? Was it a spelling error?

Thanks,

Stefan Fetterhoff
