Gassner family - Germany to Ohio

My name's Elaine Hopper. My grandmother's mother was a Gassner and I'm doing my genealogy and need all the help I can get.

The first Gassner I have record of is: Wolfgang Gassner. Wolfgang had a son named John Baptist Gassner who was born August 11, 1815 in Veburg, Germany. John married Dorothy Speyer Gassner approximately 1851 on the boat from Germany to America. They had 3 children together:

John Gassner, born 1852 in Cincinnati, Ohio
Louis Gassner, born 1860 in Cincinnati, Ohio
and Lena Gassner born on May 4, 1862 in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Lena died on Good Friday March 28, 1933 or 1934 in Cincinnati, Ohio. She married John Henry Kampf. They had 5 children (my grandmother Helen is their youngest child): Christine, Elsie, Calvin, Louisa, and Helen.

John Gassner married Rose ? They had 3 children: Katherine, Clara and Louis.

Louis married Chloe Irma Upton. They had 6 children: Harding,Evelyn, Kenneth & Keith (twins), Irving and another one I don't have a name for (I don't know whether the child was female or male, either).

Any and all help/leads would be deeply appreciated.
