Schrage Immigrants

Can anyone give me any informantion on my Schrage ancestors?
(Herman) Henry Schrage came from Germany (possibly from Prussia).
I don't know what port he came through - possibly New Orleans - but they eventually settled in St. Louis, Mo. He and a brother (?)may have had a clothing store (Schrage Brothers) at 8th & Biddle & he & his wife - Margaretha (nee: Lohbeck) may have lived may have lived in a house behind the store. They had several children. One of them was a priest - Father (Henry) Walter Schrage who founded St. Agatha's parish at 9th & Utah - down near the brewery.
Another child, Elizabeth Cinnigunda )my great grandmother) was born on 09 October 1854 in St. Louis, Mo. To the best of my knowledge all their children were born in St. Louis.
