Looking for info/father of orphan? Sarah Marguerite Donaberger (1859-1923), wife of Jacob Eberly and Donabergers of Pennsylvania

Query by westcoastie

Sarah Marguerite Donaberger was born 1859 in Lebanon, PA and passed 1923 in Bone Creek, NE. She took the maiden name of her mother, Sarah Donaberger who was born c.1824 in PA as well. Her parents were David Donaberger and Sarah Groh. I would love to learn where this line of Donaberger's came from.

I haven't been able to find a father listed to Sarah Marguerite Donaberger and since she took her mothers maiden name, there isn't much to go on. I would also like to know if she was in an orphanage or what happened to her.
According to censuses, I believe she was fostered out to a Frederick and Mary Staeger in Heidelberg Township, Lebanon, Pennsylvania. It seems like they had other children with different last names than them in their household at different times as well. A Sarah Donaberger appears in their household in 1860 when she was 1 and in 1870. And in another 1860 census there is a 18 year old Sarah Donaberger living with her parents in Jackson township, Lebanon, Pennsylvania which I am certain is her mother.

If anyone knows anything or knows a way to go about searching for information in a situation like this, I'd love to hear.
