Jacob Gorgas - Cassiah Horting

In Reply to: Re: Gorgas and Crawford Family Information by Emiliano Gorgas of 261

My great grandmother was born Mary Emaline Gorgas (b. 11 August 1840 d. 2 April 1914). She was second cousin to Dr. William Crawford Gorgas. She was the daughter of William Rittenhouse Gorgas, who was the son of Solomon Gorgas and Grandson of Jacob Gorgas, the clockmaker of Ephrata. She married Dr. George A. Horting, dentist who had a sister Cassiah Horting who married a Jacob Gorgas in about 1850-1860 (certainly not the clockmaker or his son). Does anybody know how (or if) he fits into the family? I will be glad to share any information I have about the Gorgas or Horting families.
