Re: Elizabeth 1810?-1886 Franklin Co, PA

I have a gg-grandfather, Hiram Rafesnyder (surname as per 1850 census). He was probably the grandfather of Mary Elizabeth Miller, who married Norman Diffenderfer. I have no information yet on Mary, but I am assuming her mother was a Rafesnyder/Reifsnyder who married a Miller. This information is based on oral family history. My great uncle, who died at birth about 1936, is buried on top of his grave in Chambersburg, Franklin, PA (Cedar Grove Cemetery).

The only other information I have on him is from the 1850 census (Franklin County/Hamilton township):

Elizabeth Rafesnider age 45
Sarah Rafesnider age 8
Lydia Rafesnider age 6
Hiram age 7 mos
A man by the name of Jacob Garver is listed as another family at the same dwelling, age 60.

If anyone has any amplifying information it would be greatly appreciated!
