Diederichs from Mecklenburg-Schwerin

Classification: Query
Surnames: Diederich
I am hoping that someone out there can help me. I know that my great-great grandfather, Johann Frederick Diederichs, came from the Mecklenburg-Schwerin area of Germany. I have found the ship record from his immigration to the US in 1882. I know the date of his birth, but that is about all that i have been able to find on him, and cannot trace back any further. I have found no birth or baptism record for him in Mecklenburg, or anywhere in Germany. His death certificate, obit, and anything else i have found on him only list his place of birth as Germany. I have found other Diederichs in the Mecklenburg area, but not him. His death certificate lists his mother as Doris Diederichs, and father unknown. I found online a record of a Dorothea Diederichs coming from Germany in 1884, and it links her to Johann, but i don't understand why the records are linked. There is nothing in either record mentioning the other, and i find no records anywhere here in the US for Dorothea. I am hoping someone out there can make a suggestion for where i can go from here. The 1867 census for Mecklenburg has been no help....

Thanks, Don
