Another Issac Shirk

Surnames: Shirk,Groff,Kilhafer
Looking for parents and descendants of Isaac W. Shirk 1824-1885 of West Earl Twp. Lancaster County PA m.Mary Kilhafer.I have strong reason to believe that their daughter Mary or Maria is my Mary Shirk. My Mary Shirk 1854-1935 married Elam Groff 1849-1905 Both are buried at Groffdale brick church.Mary's headstone has the middle initial "K".Using a mothers maiden name as a middle name for a child was common in those times. Also there is a Frank Kilhafer who lived with the Issac W. Shirk family who is also buried at Groffdale.This seems like a match,but i need something more.LMHS is not too far away from me,going to go soon.
