Lost Pleiss branch from Indiana- HELP!

I know its been a while since any Pleiss' have been on the forum, but I'm in a quandry.

I can't find any records of my descendents. My grandfather is Omer Pleiss from Gibson County, Indiana. He was born in 1915. His parents were James Henry and Cora Ellen Pleiss. James and Cora both died around 1950, and were born around 1860. James Henry had two brothers, George and John, and a sister, Mary Lula Mae. James and John were both tobacco farmers. James ended up in Gibson County in Indiana with his tobacco farm. I don't know if James and his 3 siblings migrated from another state. Omer believes it was his grandfather who first came to the United States (the father of James Henry Pleiss). Is this ringing a bell with anyone?
