13.  Anon.  1880.  History of Morrow County, Ohio.  O.L. Baskin & Co., Historical Publishers, Chicago (online at Heritage Pursuit).  On p. 556, under the heading, "Gilead Township":
JACOB H. SHAFER, farmer and stock-raiser; P.O. Cardington; was born in Delaware, now Morrow Co., Ohio, about the year 1815, and lived there until he was 25 years of age; he then moved to Marion Co. and farmed there for fourteen years; thence to Cardington, where he followed teaming and farming, until 1868, when he came to his present place, and has lived there since.  Nov. 24, 1841, he married Miss Hester Ann Cupp; she was born in Pickaway Co., and moved to Crawford Co., and lived there until she was 17 years old, when she went to Delaware Co., and lived there until her marriage.  They had twelve children, eight of whom are living, viz. Mary E., now Mrs. Albright, Van Wert Co., Ohio; Helen M., now Mrs. Lewis, of Morrow Co., Ohio; Barbara A. at home; Wm. S., Morrow Co., Ohio; Nancy, now Mrs. Loffer, Morrow Co., Ohio; Sarah C., now Mrs. Lucas, Marion Co., Ohio; Jacob A., Morrow Co., Ohio; Lucetta F., now Mrs. Kisling, Morrow Co., Ohio; also Minnie F., adopted in infancy.  Mr. Shafer has always been a hard-working man and has earned all he has by his own labor and management.  He owns 113 acres located two miles southeast of Mt. Gilead.  His parents, William and Sallie (Dewitt) Shafer, were natives of Pennsylvania, they married there, and came to Delaware Co., Ohio, in the year 1810; he enlisted and served during the war of 1812, after which he moved to Cass Co., Ind., where he died; his wife died in Marion Co., Ohio, previous to his going West.  Mrs. Shafer's parents, Conrad and Elizabeth (Cruninger) Cupp, were natives of Pennsylvania; they married there, and moved to Pickaway Co. at an early day, and in 1824, they moved to Crawford Co., where they died.
They were married in 1842, at least according to an extraction of the county marriage records.
