Benn family from West Prussia that settled in Milwaukee, WI

My Great-grandparents, Wilhelm Benn and Justina Hohnke Benn came to
America leaving Bremen in 1871. I found their children's baptism records
in Krojanke, Kreutz Flatow, Germany. Wilhelm had two brothers,
Carl Benn who married Wilhelmine Vogt, who were my grandmother's
parents (my grandparents were first cousins) and August Benn wh m.
Henrietta Kaeding, (their children also christened at Krojanke 1855-1868)
I have been unable to find any record prior to 1855 on any of
my Benn family in Germany. My Great great grandfather may have
been Erdman Benn, but have been unable to find any records on them.
Family info from an aunt says they may have immigrated to Germany
from England. Wilhelm and Justina Benn came to Milwaukee, Carl &
Wilhelmine and August and Henrietta did not come to America. Any
information would be appreciated.
