Michael/Peter/William Shofner of NC

I am a descendant of Michael and Margaretha Shofner who came to Orange
County, NC in 1760 from Frankfurt, Germany. Their son Peter and his son
William moved to Bedford County, TN in the early 1800's. William and
Elvira Brown Shofner and four of their children (Acton, Jasper Newton,
Samuel Layton, and Minerva Catherine) came to Angelina County, TX in
1837. My great grandmother, Margaret Annie Shofner, was the daughter of
Joseph W. Shofner, who was the son of Jasper Newton Shofner.

This is basically the extent of my knowledge on my Shofner line. I am seeking any additional info on Michael, Peter, or William Shofner (Shoffner).

Also, there was a mention of a Shoffner book. Are any of my ancestors listed in it? Is it available? If so, could you tell me how to get it and what is costs?
