Bastardy and Fornication in Pennsylvania

I would like to find a certain Susanna Rode who was too familiar with a certain Jacob Lupfer in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania about 1814. A male child resulted and Jacob was convicted of Bastardy and Fornication in 1815. He was sentenced to provide support for the child until the child was seven. Jacob was born in 1791 in New Bloomfield, Cumberland (now Perry) County, Pennsylvania. It seems probable that these events occured in that area, but Jacob may have travelled a little farther.
This Susanna was likely the same age as Jacob or younger. Her birth year could have been any time in the 1790's. Of course other possibilities exist as to her age - she may have been older.
In the documents nothing is said about Susanna except her name.
