Georg Petry 1850 information

I am looking for information about Georg Petry (other spellings possible who immigrated to the US from Germany c. 1850. Around 1922 he donated money to pay for an addition to the Bliesdalheim Catholic church in (Saarland) Germany, possibly his place of birth. I would like to know his profession and how he was able to afford to send such a large sum of money back home to pay for the church addition.
PS I used to live in Bliesdalheim, Germany.
