Children of Nicholas Reiffers (1805 - 1867)

My great grandfather, Michael Reiffers (1840 - 1917), was the son of Nicholas Reiffers (1805 - 1867). Michael and his brother Nicholas immigrated to American while another brother, Philippe stayed in Luxembourg. I am trying to clear up some confusing information regarding Nicholas. I have a sworn statement signed by Nicholas that puts his birth year as 1819, other information states 1846 - a big difference. Nicholas was a common name through the family tree. I'm trying understand the lineage from the Nicholas who arrived in the US in 1854.
