Matthew Leyh 1828-1898 Germany

Hi all:
I am looking for information about Matthew (Mattias) Leyh. He was born Jan 6, 1828 in (I am told) Neuses, Land Gricht, Dinglespeil, Bavaria, Germany. Or it could be Dinkelsbuhl. He married Margaretha Wolf in Oswego, Ill. April 1858, and died April 12, 1898, is buried in Union Cem. Sumner, Iowa. He came to USA in 1853 and lived near Aurora and Oswego, Ill. south of Chigago. The farm in Iowa was purchased when Franklin Pierce was Pres. between 1853-1857. He and Margaretha had 8 children. One, the youngest was my grandfather, Fred Gotlieb Leyh. Can anyone help me find more information about my great-grandfather Matthew?
Thank you before hand.
Phyllis Ward
