Heinrich Schuessler -- Germany to Pennsylvania in 1732

I'm trying to find out what town my Schuessler ancestors came from. I've been able to trace my family to Heinrich Schuessler, who imigrated to Pennsylvania on "the Ship Mary of London," which landed in Philadelphia on September 26, 1732. Henry'a age was listed on the passenger list as 52, which would place his birth around 1680. Other members of the family who were listed on the passenger list are: Hance Jacob Schuessler (22), Jerick (George) Schuessler (18) and Henrich Schuessler (16). The passenger list referred to the passengers as Palatinates. However, family oral history always said that one ancestor (who turned out to have been born in Philadelphia, and was the younger Heinrich's son) was Hessian. From what I've seen on the Mormon records at, Schuessler has been a very common name in Germany/central Europe, and I'm unsure which (if any) person I've seen there may be my ancestors -- I haven't found anyone that I'm sure is connected to my family. Any information that can be shared, or suggestions about who to contact for information (either in the United States or in Europe), will be very helpful. Thank you for any information and/or suggestions that you can give me.
