Collettes of Bolendorf

I have a Bollendorf gg & his brother for whom I need roots. NICHOLAS COLLET (use any spelling) b c. 1824 in Bollendorf of a French father and a German mother, married MARGARET FRENZ. They had 4 cnildren born in Bollendorf: ELIZABETH, MATTHIAS, ANN, AND MARGARET. Margaret Frenz presumably died c. 1854 and he and the children emigrated to Chicago, probably in 1856. He married Catherine Klassen and they had 7 more. He died June 12, 1878 in Chicago.
His brother, MATTHIAS aka JOHN BAPTISTE, was born c. Feb 1832 in Bollendorf and probably emigrated with his brother. He married MARIA ??? and they had 9 children in Chicago and Iowa. Mathias died some time after 1900, probably in DesPlaines ( a Chicago suburb where he had lived in 1900-1910).
I will do the Bollendorf microfilms if I must, but I was hoping those two boys could be placed by the prolific genealogists of the prolific Collets.
