Henry Faus & Elizabeth Helper/Kepler

What are the sources for the surname of Elizabeth Hepler/Kepler who married Henry Faus? I know one for Hepler-the His of Columbia & Montour Cos PA 1915 which has several inaccuracies including: daughter Elizabeth (2 May 1808-7 Jan 1870) married Abraham Knauss/Knouse not Krauss) and Mary (1812-16 Nov 1886) married Peter Whitenight (Whitenitch etc) not Whitney. For Kepler: Sister Faus in her Faus Genealogy. She took her info on Eliz and Henry's children directly from the Co His--did she have another source for Kepler or was it a misprint? There were both names in Northampton Co. Elizabeth was born 1884 and died 1859 (tombstone). Andrew (Andreas) Kepler baptized a daughter Elizabeth born on 24 Aug 1884 in New Hanover Montgomery PA. Too bad we don't know the month and day of our Elizabeth's birth in 1884--or does somebody out there know the exact date? Any sources for the correct name and exact date very much appreciated. Additionally, with Mary's birth date 1812, father Henry did not die before 1811. Daughter Julia was born 4 Sep 1814 but need absolute proof that her father was Faus. Marilyn Knowles Riehl
