Rupertus Family from Kirchheim, Hessen, Germany

Surnames: Rupertus, Sippel
My 3rd great grandfather, Gottlieb Rupertus emigrated in 1851 to the US. His Brother Henry emigrated in 1853 to the US.

Gottlieb was born 5 July 1830 and his Godfather was the Unter-Burgermeister, Gottlieb Lange. Gottlieb and Henry's mother's name was Magdalena Sippel.

They left behind their father Johannes Rupertus who was the Master Shoemaker and Johannes' second wife and children. We do not know their names. We only know about the other wife and kids from the attorney's bill for closing the estate.

We believe that Johannes died in the latter part of 1868, as Gottleib had hired an attorney for closing his father's estate...first item on the bill for liquidation was dated 10 Dec 1868.

What I'm trying to do is find previous ancestors to Johannes, and possibly any living relatives, as well as how to go about finding any actual documents, such as a marriage/death date for Johannes and Magdalena.
