I couldn't find any of the names you mentioned with those dates, etc but did find some info that may be of use. Also, this book has hundereds of SCHMEER family info, but most are not from Prussia, they are from Bischmisheim area of Germany. If you find more SCHMEER names from Germany, there is a good chance they may be in this book!

I did find one family that went from Germany to Pennsylvania and since many of the families new each other in the "old country" they tended to move to same area in America. You might want to check this family out:

Philipp Wilhelm SCHMEER b. 09 Feb 1831 Bischmisheim, Germany; married Dorothea Catherina KAMP on 03 Feb 1859 Dudweiler, Germany. One of their children, Peter SCHMEER came to America and settled in Hazelton, PA.

Most of the SCHMEER families that went to America listed in this book, settled first in New York.

If you find additional info (names, etc) of ancestors from Germany, let me know and I can see if they are in this book.
