Yes there is an Elisabeth J. Derflinger Bn abt 1842 - my Grandfathers only sister - Union Co. Washington Twp. Ohio. It doesn't sound like the right one. The problem always seems to be that the same names keep showing up generation after generation. Elisabeth is one of them. I'll look thru some of my other records to see if she shows up. The Thomas connection is possible but who knows. I don't have very much info on his family. There were several Henrys in that area around 1840 - 1850.
