durfor dufford teaford

You know this is just sooo cool. My family has been looking for at least 50 years for clues regarding our original immigrant ancestor Jacob Dufford - the U has an umlaut over it. Well, last week I was cruising ebay.com and found an old green canning jar listed by a woman in germany and the bottom of the jar was stamped durfor! This woman found this jar in an old barn in Nancy, France. Now my family by legend originates in Nancy. The spelling of the name is just too coincidental not to belong to the same line. The name Dufford in America becomes Teaford by about 1820 or so. Do you know who is the original Durfor in America? By legend my Jacob Dufford is supposed to have a brother but he didn't sign the allegiance oath at the port of philadelphia coming from the ship HERO no Oct 24, 1764..He may have been below the legal age or ill...Could we be related?
