Geiss Family - Bensheim, Darmstadt to NYC

I am looking for decendants of George and Katherine (Alt) Geiss of Bensheim, Hesse Darmstadt. They came over to the US circa 1852 with their 2 children, George Jr.(1846) and Sarah Rosalie(1849). They had another daughter here in the US in 1854 named Mary Magdalene. George Jr. married and had several daughters, named Teresa, Sarah and Lizzie. His wife may have been named Mary. Sarah Rosalie married Alphons Sommer and had 6 children - Robert, Walter, Herbert, Cora Pauline, Lily and Amalie. Mary married Louis Bieral and had 2 daughters, Grace Bieral Fischer and Mabel Bieral Todd. Grace Bieral Fisher had 2 children - Harold and June. These families all resided in the NYC area. Any information would be appreciated.
