The Luft/Mehrman/Herb/Seeger line of Loffenau is mine. Can you tell me how we might connect?

My grandmother was Amelia Herb, d/o William/Wilhelm Gottlieb Herb who came over on the ship, "Connecticut" to NY in 1854 with his family at age 6. They had to walk from Albany, NY to Schenectady, NY because his father, Jacob had been robbed in the old country before leaving and was very short of funds. They lived two years in St. Johnsville on the Mohawk and in 1856 the family moved to Alton, Madison Co. IL. I now have this family documented in Loffenau through his father, Jacob Friedrich Herb (1822-1898), s/o Georg Friedrich Herb (1770-1840), s/o Christoff Herb (1732-1814), s/o Valentin Herb.

Jacob had two wives: 1) Theodore Seeger (they had three children together and she had 9 children with her first husband, Johann Christoph Hecker); 2) Theodore Merhman (they had no children together).

Georg Friedrich Herb was married to Margareta Luft (1779-1864)
Christoff Herb was married to Justina Margaret Mehrman (1742-1815)
Valentin Herb was married to Katherina Klara Ziegler
