Jacob Reiger Gorlitz, Germany to Chicago

I'm looking for information on the ancestors of Jacob Reiger. He was born 1863 or 1864 in Gorlitz, Austria (now Germany), and died 13 Oct 1938 in Chicago, Illinois. Jacob's father was Sina Rieger born 1836 or earlier in Gorlitz. Jacob's mother and siblings are unknown. Jacob's wife Sarah Kolber was also born in 1863 or 1864. She died 21 Aug 1951. She was born in Neu Sendec, Austria. I'm not sure if that is now a part of Germany or Poland. Jacob and Sarah were married in New York City, New York and moved to Chicago sometime before 1888.
