Jacob and Rudolph SHOFNER, NC

After 5 years of dead ends I have made a tenuous connection to family for SARAH SHOFNER who was born c 1774 (census says PA) and was married to Benjamin THOMPSON on Mecklenberg Co NC c 1800.

Can anyone tell me more about these 2 men? Or their relationship to the REAP family?

in Mecklenberg Co, NC:

1784 william REAP age 8 was bound to Jacob SHOFNER tolearn to be a taylor

1798 Rudolph SHOFNER only one in Meck. tax list

c1800 Benjamin Thompson and Sarah SHOFNER marry

1803 Rudolph SHOFNER sells 100 ac land to Benjamin Thompson

later in 1803 Peter REAP ordered to be admin of Rudolph SHOFNER's estate

1813 Benjamin THOMPSON sells land in order to go to Marshall Co TN

1814 Peter REAP does final account and settlement of Rudolph SHOFNER estate (no heirs named)

I would hate to try to deduce any familial relationships between Jacob, Rudolph and Sarah on such meager data. Can anyone fill me in?

Please email directly
