Jean Francois Baasen and Maria Catharina Sybella Gretsch 1794-1849 (Remich or city of Lux?)

Surnames: Baasen, Gretsch, Minges
I am seeking information from Luxembourg records for Jean Francois Baasen b. 1794 in Luxembourg. Was a Notary from 1826-1849 and then came to the U.S. in 1849 as a Consul for Luxembourg (controlled at the time by the Netherlands). He died in Milwauke, Wisconsin in Oct 1874. His wife was Maria Catharina Sybella Gretsch. b. 1811 in we think Remich, Luxembourg, and died in Milwaukee Apr 1878.
they had 9 children we've found so far, all but 2 born in Luxembourg:
Francois Marie Joseph Baasen 1829-1901 - First Secretary of State of Minnesota
Father Jean Baptiste 1833-1902 buried in Apalachicola, FL
Elisabeth Baasen 1837-1922 buried in Milwaukee
Eva Therese Baasen (Sister Odilia of the Order of St. Chretienne) died in Merz, France 1839-1880
John G. Baasen 1843-1900 died in Chicago, buried in family plot in Milwaukee
Prof. Michael Baasen 1844-1917 buried in Milwaukee
Nicholas Baasen 1846-1927 buried in Minnesota
Maria Theresa Francisca Baasen Minges 1852-1873 (b. in Milwaukee, d. and buried in Rochester, NY)
Brigetta Josephina Maria Baasen 1854- (died before 1922 per sister Elise's obituary)

I'm particularly looking for parents or marriage records of Jean Francois and Maria as we don't have much information on them from Luxembourg. I did find some possible siblings on the website, but not sure.

any help is appreciated.
