Pleiss from Uslar, Hanover, Germany

My wife's great grandparents were Wilhelm Diedrich and Caroline Augusta (Wienieke) Pleiss of Uslar, Germany. They were probably married in Uslar about 1870-73. Children born in Germany were: Frederica (1873), Heinrich P. (1876), Paul G. (1877), Wilhelm H. (1881)and Carl(1884).
The father, Wilhelm D., was a cigarmaker in Uslar and was born about 1847-8, the son of Frederich Pleiss and Minnie Bestiko(?). Caroline Wienieke Pleiss was born about 1852, daughter of Wilhelm Wienieke, probably from the Uslar area. Heinrich Pleiss, gardner of Colmar, was a sponsor at baptism of W. H. Pleiss in 1881. Wilhelm D. Pleiss family settled in Baltimore, Maryland, USA about 1884-5.
Any information about these families will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
