I would be skeptical of Anna Eva, wife of George, being a Sebring. Her granddaughter was Anna Eva Ribble Sebring, and the assignment of this surname to George's wife would appear to result from confusion between granddaughter and grandmother. George and Anna Eva were married in Germany, (probably near Annweiler, in the Palatinate) and it would be a hugh coincidence for her to have had the same surname as the NJ Dutch family into which their son and granddaughter would later marry. Not that hugh coincidences can't happen, but it does make one look more closely. What is the source for giving her this surname?
