Sophia Garman

Does anyone have information on Sophia Garman of Snyder(Union) or Perry Counties in Pennsylvania? She is my gggg grandmother. Here comes the problem. Some say she was married to John Sheaffer and some say John Sheaffer jr. and some say both. Does anyone know her line?

In any case she was also married to Perry Hare. I would also like to know if there were any children to Hare. In Snyder County, in a private cemetary on Susan Swarms farm under an apple tree, there is a marker for an unknown child of Perry Hare. Sophia was born 11/25/1824 and died 8//18//1916 at 91 years 8 months and 24 days.

She had a daughter Sarah Anne Sheaffer and a son Edward Garman Sheaffer..my ggg grandfather.

I know little of the lady, but I know she came from a family of well known and successful merchants....funeral homes among other businesses.
