Michael Rippstein..immigrated from germany

Michael Rippstein immigrated from Germany in 1849 on the ship Portsmouth. He had several family members with him. One was my GG Grandfather John Konrad. He ran away from home when he was about 15, so we have pretty much no info on the rest of the family. Michael had three more kids after he got to the usa. He settled in Cincinnati Ohio. I was wondering if anybody had any information on the other children that came across on the boat with Michael, the names i was really looking for are Nicholaus, Terrance and margaret. These might be middle names. they were all born in the late 1820's, i think in bavaria but not sure.
