A genealogist/historian in Germany sent me the following information (I will look up his name and post it), and I have no way of verifying if it is true. But if any of you are planning a trip to Germany or read German, maybe it will give you some leads:

Philip Lux (b. 2 Apr 1786, d. 19 Mar 1840) married Maria Elisabeth Kirstgen (b. 30 Jun 1785, d. 6 Jun 1856) on 8 Jan 1809 in Dreis, Germany. They were both born and died in Dreis. Their son, Mathias (Matthew) is our ancestor (b. 2 Jun 1909).
There was another son, whose name I do not have.

Philip's father is Lorenz Lux (b. 7 Oct 1751, Dreis) and his mother is Maria Dorothea Thome (d. 7 Dec. 1788, Dreis).

M.E. Kirstgen's parents were Jacob Kirstgen (b. 1758, d. 7 Feb 1818) and Anna Katharina Wurmser (b. 1759, d. 15 Mar 1834). Both were born and died in Dreis.
