Dyckhues (or Dickhaus, Dyckhaus, etc.)

I am finding that my ancestors came from the DAMME area south of Oldenburg and west of Hannover. It seems that there was a mixing of heritage in this area of Germany because many Germans from the Damme area migrated annually to the lowlands to the north to harvest the Peat (?) in the dyked lands to help make ends meet. I am finding Dickhaus (as I found my ggggrandmother's maiden name in 1837 marriage records in Cincinnati) spelled a variety of ways in the german websites. I got my information from the HONKAMP site and "Damme-Dickhaus" (google). What seems rather consistent is the "Dyck" portion of the spelling--seemingly to imply a connection to lowlands of the north. Families that I am looking from Germany immigrating around the early to mid-1830's--G.H.Detmer (Gerhard Heinrich or Henry) and his wife, "Anna", Enneking, Brokamp, Dickhaus (or possibly Dyckhues or Dyckhus), Kleine or Kline. Also a good website on discussion of name derivation "Bebloemer/Bauernhoefe".
