Daniel Ristau

Looking for information on the parents and siblings of Daniel Ristau born Feb 2, 1850 in Jczejewo and died in 1924 in Kruszcewo, Poland. He was married two times.
1. Minna Litke. Two children born to this union, they were:
Whilhelmina Ristau who married a cousin of her father, a Ristau.
Edward Ristau born Jan 5 1877 and died 1944 in Cleveland Ohio.
Minna, the mother, apparently died when Edward was about 2yr of age.
2. Karoline Zinn, 1860-1942, in Kruszcewo, Poland
there is 11 children born to this union. If someone is interested I can offer their names.

Seek any connections to this family.
It is believed that the Ristau family moved from the Alsace Lorraine region of France at the time of the French Revolution. Family story suggests that 6 Risteau brothers lived in France at the time and 3 were beheaded and the other three escaped to Russia/Prussia area and settled there.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks
Alice
