Seeking info. on Nordmeyer family in Hannover

I am looking for information, records, documentation on my great, great grandparents who immigrated to America in 1909. This is what I know about them.

Lord August Henry John Nordmeyer was born in 1859 in Hannover, Germany. He died in 1924 in Nebraska, U.S.A. He, his wife, and three children boarded the ship, Prince Friedrich Wilhelm in Bremen in 1909 and arrived in New York. They subsequently ended up in Nebraska. A 1920 census has them in Adams, Gage, Nebraska. My gggrandfather was a well to do farmer in Germany.

Lady Louise Willamina Gerhke Nordmeyer was born in 1869 in Hannover, Germany. She was married to someone else before my grandfather and had at least two children that she left in Germany when she immigrated. We have beeen unable to locate any information about this part of our family since we do not have names or dates. I do not know exactly when she died, but I believe it was sometime in the 1950's. My father remembers visiting her as a boy. She also died in Nebraska.

Their children were: Sophia b. 1903 in Hannover, Germany. August Henry b. November 28, 1905 in Hannover, Germany. Willamina Bettie b. 1908 in Hannover, Germany. Henry (Heinrich) b. 1910 in Nebraska, U.S.A.

Any and all information/help would be appreciated! Thank You!
