Leopolds from Lockhausen, Wittlage Germany to Cleveland, Ohio

I am looking for the descendants and ancestors of the Leopold family who started the Leopold Furniture Company in Cleveland. Ernst Philip[?] Leopold had a son, Christopher Ludwig Leopold (b. 1785 in Wittlage and died 1847 in Lockhausen). His children were: Ersnt Friedrich, Johann Heinrich (John, my ancestor), Jobst Heinrich, Heinrich Wilhelm, Wilhelm Ludwig and Ernst Heinrich (Henry Leopold who started the Leopold Furniture Company with his brother John). Many of their brothers' children came to Cleveland to work for the Leopold Furniture Company.
