John (Johan) Gunther b Nov 1853 near Berlin

I am searching for my great grandfather, John (probably actually Johan) Gunther and his familu. According to the records I have found (and which I believe to be true) he was born near Berlin in Nov 1853. He arrived in the US in 1872. In 1887 he married a woman named Ida who was born in Pennsylvania in Dec 1863. Both Ida's parents were also born in Pennsylvania. John and Ida had two children. Verna Christie Iona Gunther was born in Colorado (perhaps Denver) on 7 Nov 1889. (She was my grandmother, married to Charles Perry Rhodes.) Verna's brother Murlin was born in Kansas in 1888. I know that they were living in Lyon Co., KS in 1900 and Greenwood Co., KS in 1905. The last information I have on John or Ida is that they were living in Polk Co., AR in 1910.

Any leads on John or Ida's backgrounds would be greatly appreciated.
