Henry Kephart son of Heirich, father of John

I am trying to verify that Henry Kephart, born in 1756 in Bistol Twp, Philadelphia Co, Pa is the father of John Capehart Kephart b. 29 Dec. 1783, Bucks, Co., PA and d. 21 July 1858, Bucks Co., PA. John was the father of Andrew Capehart b. 26 July 1807 in Philadelphia, PA and who died 20 Nov 1890 Keokuk Co., IA. Andrew was the father of George Capehart, b. 14 Apr 1837, Belmont Co., OH and who died 20 Dec 1920 near Guthrie Center, IA. George is my husband's great, grandfather. If I have the right Henry Kephart, he is the son of Henrich Gebhardt/Kephart b 1725 in N. Baden, Switzerland and who d 16 Sept 1793, Cumberland Valley, Philadelphia Co., PA of yellow fever.

Henrich's wife's name was Barbara. I don't know what Henry's wife's name was. John's wife's name was Rachel Ott. Andrew wife's name was Lettitia Briggs and his son, George married Sara Ann McCullough.

There seems to be some confusion as to whether Elizabeth Kephart was Henry's sister or daughter. I find I have her entered in my genealogy program as both. If she was his daughter, he would have been only 16 when she was born.

Any help anyone can give would be appreciated.
