Alsace-Lorraine surnames

Surnames: MATTER, MOTTER, KEISER
Am researching my MATTER family line. Origins back to Alsace Lorraine. The following is what little I know:

Hans Matter, born 1616, died 20 Feb 1680/1, married Catherina circa 1642. Catherina born 1616, died 1697/8, in Eckendorf, Als.Lorraine. 3 children:

Catharina, circa 1644-1680

Hans Matter (2), 1646-1692

Diebold Matter, circa 1647-1727/8.

Does anyone have information preceding 1616? Parents of Hans Matter? Any information about Hans Matter, the Matters in the 1600's? Did the Matter family name originate in Alsace Lorraine? and so on.

others:

Anna Christina Keiser, Altdorf, Alsace Lorraine, 1696/7-1741. Parents: Jacob Keiser and Maria Veit|Reit.
Other descendants in this keiser line.

Hope to meet some "cousins" out there!
