Dils/Dilts Family - NJ 1700's

I have an ancestor named Philip Dils (b. abt 1735 in NJ) who married Mary Hoffman (b. abt 1744, prob. in NJ). They married before 1762.

I found one gedcom on the Internet that had this information:
"Philip Dils born abt 1735 in Hunterdon, NJ. No record of marriage or children. Will listed for Amwell Twp., Hunterdon Co., NJ dated 16 Jun 1784. Father listed as Henrich (or Henry) Dils, born 11 Mar 1712 in Urbach Kirchdorf, Rheinland, Prussia. Died 11 May 1787 (?) in Hunterdon Co., NJ. Parents from Prussia - Wilhelm Dils and Eulalia Thomas.

Philip's mother listed as just Anna, born abt 1715 prob in Hunterdon Co., NJ., died after 1787. Married to Henrich in 1734.

Other children of Henrich and Anna Dils:
Henrich Dils (abt 1737), Peter Dils (abt 1739), Anna Dilts (abt 1742), Wilhelm Dilts (abt 1744), Maria or Mary Dilts (abt 1746), Elisabetha Dilts (abt 1748), Catharina Dilts (abt 1750), Christina Dilts (abt 1753) and Jacob Dilts (1756). All children born in Hunterdon Co., NJ. Information probably came from desc of Jacob (more info about him).

Note: Except for first two children (Peter and Henrich) the surname for all the other children is listed as Dilts."

The only child I know of born to Philip and Mary Hoffman was my 5G grandmother, Anna (or Anny), b.1763 in NJ, who married William Lyons.

Any further info about these people appreciated.
