Caroline Fehring (NY)

I am looking for more information regarding one of my Maternal Greatgrandmothers , Caroline(a) Bernadine Fehring Ofenloch. I am looking to go back the next generation and family in Germany Roman Catholic
Born in Germany early 1850's (I think 1853). Died Hicksville, NY, April 1939. Burried in Holy Rood cemetery on Long Island.
Husband was Philipp Jacob Ofenloch, Had 6 sons, 3 survived.

I know she had atleast one brother that came to the US with her as she raised two of his children (Anna Fehring Puvogel and Bernadine Fehring Herzog) in Hicksville who left their father after he remarried (story is they did not like their new step mom). He was either from Long Island or New Jersey.
It appears that my Greatgrand parents were married around 1885, perhaps in Brooklyn. My grandfather was born in Hicksville NY in 1887, he was the third child.

Any help you can supply would be appreciated.
I am new to this forum so any information on other forums and sources would also be appreciated.
