Doerrs in S. Il. & Mo. 1840s?-present

I am looking for any information about the Doerr side of my family. What I have been told is that my Great-Great-Grandparents, Karl and Kristine Doerr of Alsace-Lorraine left Bremen in the mid-Nineteenth C. and came to America. I don't know where they settled, but their son, William, married my Great Grandmother, Frances Irene Wallace and settled in Pickneyville, Il. Their second child and eldest son, Homer Arthur, b. 1889, was my Granddad. He later settled in Perryville, Missouri where he met and married my Grandmother, Mary Moore. They moved to St. Louis early this century and raised a family of four. Their third child and second son, James Arthur, who married Marilyn Moore in 1948, is my father. Does anyone have any further information on this line of Doerrs or their spouses?
