Andrew McGaffick sibling to Elizabeth Risinger? Beaver co PA

Looking for information about the Beaver Co McGaffick families: This is listing from 1880 census:

Census Place: Fallston, Beaver, Pennsylvania
Source: FHL Film 1255097 National Archives Film T9-1097 Page 364D
Relation Sex Marr Race Age Birthplace
Andrew MC GAFFICK Self M M W 60 PA
Occ: Farmer Fa: PA Mo: PA
Margaret Ann MC GAFFICK Wife F M W 56 PA
Occ: House Keeper Fa: PA Mo: PA
Elizabeth RISINGER Sister F W W 71 PA

I believe that the Elizabeth Risinger living with Andrew and his wife belongs with this family from the 1850 census:

William Risinger, age 47, a ship's carpenter, and
his wife Elizabeth, 42. Their children are Jackson, 19; Madison, 16; Sarah J., 14; John H., 11; Thomas J., 8; and James H. P. (or K. P.), 5

In 1816, Andrew is listed as a singleman on tax list of Ohio TWP; don't know who his father was. Am mostly interested in if this Elizabeth Risinger is his sister as listed in census. Also, would like to know if Andrew's mother was living during the Civil War.

Any help with the family would be appreciated, Many Thanks, Janet Currie
