Chris: There isn't a lot of information on Peter and his wife, Delilah, but here's what my research shows:
Peter was born on 20 Nov 1770 in what is now Alamance County, NC. He was the son of Michael Shofner and Margaretha Fogleman. He married Delilah Henderson, probably in 1794, with whom he had at least six children. The possible 7th child is Hezekiah, supposedly born in Bedford County, TN, perhaps in 1822. Hezekiah reportedly married Emily Pitt in 1847 in Rutherford County, TN, had nine children and by 1860 had moved to Dyer County, TN. He is believed to have died sometime after 1880. As for Peter, he had moved to TN in 1808 only to return to NC in 1812 to manage lands he had inherited from his father. Later he sold these lands to his brother, Frederick, and was back in TN by 1820. His other children's names are as follows:
1. Caty Lattimore; b. 1795; d. 1822
2. William; b. 1797; d. 1879
3. Plummer L.; b. 20 Mar 1811; d. 8 May 1888
4. Gabriel; b. 1814; d. 1880
5. Elvira; b. 17 Jun 1817; d. 25 Sep 1886
6. Elixabeth; b. 1819.
Hope this helps some.
