Classification: Query
Surnames: Brohl
To reconstruct their "footprint" in Milwaukee for that era you should search out children's baptisms and/or the possibility of church burial records (simultaneously scanning for the Brohl parents as baptism sponsors for other families too). The Mormons microfilmed all area Catholic church records and many, not all, area Protestant church records.
Wauwatosa in 1850s means the township, and the Fed. Census description may place the family in a part of the township? Or check other names on nearby census pages against property owners showing on early maps of Milwaukee County / Wauwatosa Township. The UW-Milwaukee Library has 1850s map/s in their online digital collection.

I haven't indexed any entry or reference of Brohl in "Milwaukee's German Newspapers; an index of death notices and related items" (1844-1950).
