Imel/Immel in Germany

Has anyone traced the Imel/Immel line back into Germeany. Specifically has anyone verified that the "5 brothers" were indeed Hessian soldiers? From Vol 1 of Hetrina, I have found two Heinrich Immels, both from Erksdorf in Hesse but nearer to Marburg than Kassel, both in the von Huyn Regiment but different companies, one born 1751/1752, the other 1753/1754 both serving from 5/1776 to 2/1783. Could these be the samr person, listed twice or are they two of the brothers, listed under the same name. The birth dates do not agree with those from the kelley book but are close and the ones in Hetrina are estimated to have as much as a 2-4 year error. A Johannes Immel from Treisbach, also near Marburg, born 1756/1757 served in the regiment for the same period. Finally there is a Paul Immel from Erksdorf, born 1757/1758, again of the von Huyn Regiment but serving from 5/1776 to 10/1776 when he is shown deceased by disease. In Volume 3, an Immel, first name unknown, of Erksdorf, born 1758/1759 but of the von Knyphausen Regiment, listed on leave in 1785.

I don't know if any of these are our "Imels" and would appreciate any information anyone has from Germany.
