Johann (b: Oct 1842) & Dorothea Ristau (b: Feb 1840) Germany

Hi, I'm looking for any information on Johann & Dorothea Ristau. I've got Johann born about Oct 1842 in Germany. His wife, Dorothea (or Dora) born Feb 1840 in Germany.
I've found their children to be:
1. Johann (Jr)
2. Emilie
3. Carl
4. Eduard
5. Fred born: July 1873
6. Gustav

I believe all of the children were born in Germany, but they immigrated while the children were small. (I think Fred was 5 when they immigrated.) They settled in Chicago, Cook County, IL. Does anyone have anything more on Johann & Dorothea Ristau? (Note: Fred later moved from Chicago, IL to Muskegon, MI with his family. Muskegon, MI is where he died.)

Thanks, Kaye Sherwood
