August Formella and Elizabeth Wolscho(n) - Detroit, Michigan

Looking for information on August Formella and Elizabeth Wolscho(n)(Wolezon?). Castle Garden has August Formella (age 42) arriving on the ship Amerika May 13, 1882. Elizabeth (age 32) followed July 14, 1882 on the ship Hermann with their children:

Louise age 8 (my great great grandmother)
Caroline age 7
Johann age 4
Margreta age 2
Franz age 11 months

Caroline, Franz(Frank) and Louise all used Formiller

Caroline is in the 1900 census in Detroit listed as a servant. She shows up again in the 1920 & 1930 census in Eloise Hospital. My grandmother says that she can remember going to visit her great aunt when she was a very little girl. She said that Caroline was in Eloise Hospital because she was depressed over the death of her infant child who died in an accident involving an Iron and the subsequent death of her husband who died in an accident after learning of the death of their only child. Unfortunately she listed under her maiden name and I've yet to fine a marriage record for her.

Frank married Frances Buczkowski in Detroit 19 October 1903.

I believe John married Rosa Schraff and lived in Detroit in 1920 and Royal Oak in 1930 (I have yet to find the marriage record with parents listed for the John Formiller that married Rosa but I believe this is the right family.)

I have no information on Margareta.

Louise (Ludovica) Formiller married August Meier November 10, 1890. Their first child Anthony August Meyer (my great grandfather) was baptized Sept. 6, 1891 at St. Michaels church in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with Caroline Formiller and Michael Breitwies as sponsors.

Does anyone know if my Formellas are relations of the other Detroit area Formella/Formiller families?
