The only information thus far is from The Hepler Family History by Avice Hepler Morgan:
CYRUS M. HEPLER was born June 07, 1840 in Westmoreland County, PA, and died February 02, 1916 in Smithton, PA. He married MARY ANN FRICK September 13, 1860. She was born January 31, 1842 in Pittsburgh area?, PA, and died March 29, 1915 in Smithton, PA.
Notes for CYRUS M. HEPLER: Blacksmith
Cyrus' wife Mary Ann Frick was the daughter of �The Pittsburgh Fricks� who owned many of the oil fields around Pittsburgh. (I can't find any references to any oil Fricks. Lots of steel and coke Fricks but none with any family trees online.)
Both buried: Hoffman Cemetery, Smithton, Pa
I have found a Mary Ann Frick, daughter of John Andrew Frick & Susanna Coder with similar but not exact dates. (See link below.) This Mary Ann Frick was born 3-13-1848 no mention of place but likely S. Huntington Twp, Pa. She has many ancestors listed as being in S. Huntington Twp... so in or near Smithton with many buried in Hoffman's Cemetery, Pa.
