Jacob ROLL, Wuerttemberg/Germany, immigrated to Chicago

I´m researching the Roll families of Chicago and found a Jacob ROLL immigrating from Germany to Chicago. The name of the place of origin is probably misspelled, it could be Unterriexingen, Wuerttemberg. I have more information on this Jacob Roll for the time after immigration, but am not sure if there is a connection between the Roll family of Chicago I´m researching and this Jacob ROLL who lived in Chicago also. I just know from the documents I received that the name of my grandfather´s father was Jacob ROLL. Two of his sons, Joseph and Frank, lived in Chicago, but there were more Roll families in Chicago – I just don´t know if and how they are related. Does anyone out there have information on this Jacob Roll below from Wuerttemberg/Germany or on a Jacob ROLL with a connection to Chicago?

Arrival Date: 10 Aug 1861
Age: 20
Port of Departure: Bremen, Germany
Destination: Chicago
Place of Origin: Unterriedringen,WUE (WUE means Wuerttemberg/Germany)
