George Herring & Anna Sell info. request

I posted this on another board this morning by mistake. This is the board where I wantedit posted. Sorry if I'm being redundant.

I have several questions about George Herring. Does anyone have any other information they can share?
1. Where did he live in Pennsylvania and in Maryland?
2. Were his parents Johann Christian Herring and Elizabeth(a) Orwig?
3. Where did he and Anna marry? When?
4. Some of his children were born in Maryland. Does anyone know if this was in the Friendsville area of Garrett
5. Does anyone know when they actually moved into Preston County?

Below is the information that I think I know about George and Anna Herring:

George born 16 Aug 1791 possibly in Bedford County Pennsylvania, he was baptised 13 Oct 1791 at Zion Red Church in Berks County, sponsor: George Herring, single., married Anna Sell - born 9 Sept. 1798, d.10 Apr. 1873

George and Anna lived in Maryland. We don't know where they met, nor married at this time.
Anna & George are buried in Herring Cemetery Nedrow Farm in Preston County WV --- (according to Janice Sisler)

some tie-in with the Deahl family:

[543] Shortly after marrying Elizabeth, they moved to Stoyce Town, PA ?
where part of the family was born. About 1823 the family moved from Stoyce Town to
Chestnut Avenue, near Hazelton, Preston County, WV. According "History of the
Deahl Family" published about 1926 (compiled by Virginia Deahl-Teets & Peter
Michelson) when Henry Deahl Jr moved from Pennsylvania to Preston County, WV
he was accompanied by a man named Sell, and his sister Anna Sell later became
the wife of George Herring (Grandfather of George A. Herring of Kingwood WV)

Thank you for any information you can share. I have been trying to locate George and Anna in several states and counties. The only thing I know for certain is that they are buried in Preston County.
