William, John G., August, Louisa, and Ernestina Brill (siblings)

I am looking for these siblings of my great-grandmother, Wilhelmina. They immigrated to Illinois in the 1870s.

William married Christina Miller in 1884. They had at last three living children by 1900: John, in Jan 1885; Hilda?, in Feb 1889; and Bertha, in Jun 1891.

August and Matilda may have had no children.

John married Lena Blecher in 1886. They had at least three living children by 1900: Leo, in Sep 1888; Paul, in July 1890; and Gertrude, in Mar 1892. (They lived in LaSalle County, then moved to Sac County, Iowa.)

Ernestina married George Wheeler in 1887. He must have died by 1900. The 1900 census shows three children: Inez, in July 1888; Esther, in Jul 1892; and Roseo, in 1894.

Louise married Ernest Bentke in 1888. I could not find them in the 1900 Federal Census in Illinois, so do not know if they had children.

I hope I can make a connection with someone. I am still searching for the villiage/city in which they were born. All I know is that they were born in Brandenburg Duchy.
