Looking for information on Baesler/Besler/Bessler family Germans from Russia who came to South Dakota

Surnames: Baesler, Bessler, Beseler, Bahsler, Besler, Reub
I have run into a dead end with my grandmother's maternal line--can only get back as far as a Samuel Bessler who was married to Elizabeth Reub. There are about 10 different spellings of the Bessler last name. None of the family trees out here are the right Bessler line. I know that my branch of the family immigrated to South Dakota, primarily Bison and adjacent areas, though I believe some of the family was also living in Elgin, ND. My grandmother knows nothing about this side of her family; all of her relatives are now gone, and her memory is getting murky. Her DNA analysis came back with 20% Greek/Italian, and there is so far nothing in our family record to substantiate this. Please help!
