FELIX (France to Rochester, NY)

Im looking for information on this FELIX family.

They immigrated from the port of Havre, France to NY (arrived on May 19, 1846) on the ship FRANCE. The family included:

Nicolas Felix (abt 1809 - bef 1880)
Theresa Felix (abt 1809 - after 1880)
Joseph Felix (abt 1832 - ?)
Victor Felix (abt 1833 - ?)
Louise Felix (abt 1835 - 5/1881 in Rochester, NY)
Xavier Felix (abt 1837 - ?) (AKA: Francis)
Albert Felix (abt 1840 - 1882 in Rochester, NY)
August Felix (abt 1843 - ?) (AKA: Joseph)

Also on the ship (Im assuming they were relatives b/c they have the same "family group #):
Catherine Felix (abt 1798 - ?)
Madg. (Magdalena ?) abt 1776 - ?)

Once in Rochester, Nicolas John Felix worked as a cooper (as did his sons). Louise (aka: Louisa or Leonise) married John Christian Donner by 1850. By the 1880 census, only Theresa remained in the Felix family home with Albert & August/ Joseph. I have no idea who died or moved by that point.

As a descendant of Louise, I would love to find anyone who may link to her many brothers !
