Landgraf Brothers (Franz Jacob and Anton Franz Andreas)

I am searching for the birthplace in Bavaria of my 4th great-grandfather {Franz Jacob/Jakob Landgraf}, born May 1831, and his brother, Anton Franz Andreas Landgraf, born February 1833.

I've always been told growing up by my grandmother (a Landgraf, granddaughter to Franz) that these 2 men came from Hesse-Darmstadt. However, I can NOT locate them there.

I've searched extensively what few German databases are available on Ancestry and found nothing. I've also searched ad nauseum on Family Search [LDS website] and found information giving 2 different towns--but the birthdates just don't match with the information I have.

Can someone out there point me in the right direction as to where to search next? I'm stuck.

Thanks so much.
