Nathaniel Shaeffer, 1766-1844, Leacock, Lancaster Co., PA

Seeking info on this individual. He's an ancestor of mine and I can't seem to find any info on him other than a church record here and there. I know where he's buried and who he married and a couple of his children obviously, but I don't know who his parents are. I'm thinking they are Martin Shaeffer & Margaret Groff, but Martin's will doesn't mention a son Nathaniel, even though they were living in the same area. Nathaniel lived in Leacock Twp throughout the census years 1790-1840. And there were other Shaeffers living right near him, one of them being Martin and a John here and there, but can't find anything on John, though I think John was a son of Martin, being Martin's will mentioned a son John. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Oliver Family of Whiteland/Goshen Twps., Chester Co., PA

Looking for info on the Oliver family of this area of the county. Father was Samuel Oliver, ca 1725-1777. Mother Elizabeth Hemphill. Their children were James, Andrew, Samuel, Nathaniel, Alexander, & Jane. Andrew is the next generation I need info on. He lived in Whiteland, till about 1809, when he died or so I'm assuming, since he isn't in the 1810 census and doubt he moved. I know he was married but don't have names for his wife and children, but I'm thinking my ancestor, Elizabeth Oliver was one of them. Her husband/my ancestor, William Arment and his family wer eliving in teh Caln area and am guesisng Elizabeth came from Andrew. Does anyone have more info on Samuel & Andrew?
