WasBANGHART DeWITT really Joseph Devitt?

Seeking any information on Maria "Polly" BANGHART or her son Joseph Banghart Devitt. Polly was born in NJ,married George RIBBLE abt 1793,son George B Ribble was born abt 1794. Her husband died shortly after. In 1800 she married Dennis DEVITT from Ireland. 7 children were born in Ramsayburg, NJ before they re-located to Ontario, Canada in 1812. 2 more children were born in Canada before she fled back to the States in 1815 taking the youngest with her but leaving as many as five with her husband. That is the last we know of her but believe she may have altered her name to DeWITT. It is possible that the youngest child (Joseph?)became BANGHART DeWITT. Did she flee to NJ, PA, OH, Michigan or where? Even IN is possible. Banghart DeWitt is known to have been in Dearborn County in 1834 when he married Maria Taylor, part of the Aquilla Cross family. It is believed he remained there, fathering nine children before his death in 1853. Was he really Canadian-born Joseph Devitt?
