Henry Freehling/Fruhling,ButlerCo,PA

Searching for anyone with information about the FREEHLING families of Winfield Twp, Butler Co, PA who were desc from Henry FREEHLING b 1813 Hesse Darmstadt, Germany who came to PA before 1845 perhaps with his parents.

I need to know more about his second wife, who was:

Elizabeth RUPPEL/RUBLE b 1810-1816 Hesse Darmstadt and who married first to Johannes BEPLER of Allegheny City, PA, and second she married Adam KINSLER of Armstrong Co. but he died soon after.

In 1865 she married HENRY F FRUHLING. they had no issue.

'FROM THE ARCHIVES OF BUTLER CO, PA' by Diana Marie Voltz Geibel pub by Closson Press not dated, appears to be a new book of typewritten pages with little leading between the lines and no spacing betwen families or any documentation of sources. It might have better been named, "Some Early Families of Armstrong County, PA " With an emphasis on the germanic families she has listed alphabetically the descendants of the early settlers. It would have been even better if she had told where she got the marriage records, etc. I guess the info was in the vertical files or records of Butler Co, Archives.

HENRY FREEHLING, Jr. (b 1813 Hesse Darmstadt, Germany/farmer there til came Am. in early day/pioneer Winfield T. farmer/e\wed 3 times/parents:
Henry FREEHLING/FRUHLING, Sr. and Elis\zabeth g\both life-long Germans)
+ (1) Margaret RAFT (b. 1812/e 1854/left 3 ch.)

+ (2) (Mary) Elizabeth RUBLE (b 1810/wed 1855/d 1865)

+ (3) Mary HELLER (b 1829I) wed 1865/d 1891/1 ch)

Children of Henry:
1. Henry F. Fruhling b Germany/came Armstrong C. PA 1830 married Vesuma of Germany (son was Caspar)

2. John George Freehling b 10 Feb 1840 Germany, came Winfield Twp , a farmer and carpenter near Cabot, a civil war vet d 1919 m Anna Miller

3. child of Mary HELLER, Ida Freehling, married Herman Foerster, her children Charle H. Foerster and Mary Foerster who married a Mr. HEPLER.

Now there are more descendants with their wives , occupations residences.

It appears that some of this must be from family hearsay as the date of Elizabeth RUPPEL RUBLE birth is no where near the date on the census of 1850 or 1860 .

They show she was age 34 before 7 Aug 1850 and 43 bef 11 Jun 1860.
Perhaps her birth date was between June and Aug of 1816 or 1817.
