Sebastian Rapp/Rappe in PA 1850-1880

I'm looking for a connection between Sebastian RAPP(E) and Frederica EBERHAR(D)T. Frederica's son, John Sebastian EBERHART was my G Grandfather.

Sebastian RAPPE and Frederica are found living in the same household in:
1850 Census for Willistown, Chester co., PA
Rappe, Sebastian 31 Germany (all)
Rappe, Theresa 33
Eberhardt, Frederike 37
Eberhardt, Caroline 1

John Sebastian EBERHART was born a month after the above census was done.

I can't find Frederica in 1860, but Caroline is now living with Sebastian and Theresa/Rose RAPP:
1860 Census for Sheffield, Warren co., PA
Sabastian Rapp 41 Prussia (all)
Rose Rapp 43
Caroline Everhart 11

In 1870 Fredericka and her son, John Sebastian, are in Glade just a few doors away form Sebastian RAPPE.
1870 Census for Glade, Warren co., PA
Rappe, Sabastian 51 Prussia (all)
Pappe, Therrsia 53
Rappe, Simon 24

In 1880 Fredericka, a widow, is living with her son, John Sebastian EBERHART in Glade, Warren co., PA, a few doors away form Sebastian RAPPE and next-door to Henry W. and Eveline GARDNER.
1880 Census for Glade, Warren co., PA
Sebastian Rappe 61 Germany
Teresa Rappe 63

Henry W. and Eveline GARDNER are also my G Grandparents. Their son, Daniel Avery GARDNER, married John Sebastian's daughter, Ora Dineta EBERHART.

Now, back to my question. Does anybody have info on whether Frederica is Sebastian RAPP(E)'s sister. I think it is likely that she named her son after her brother who she was living with at the time of his birth. I have no info on Frederica's spouse.

Thank you,
