Kissels of Vanderburgh Co., Indiana

Looking for any information on the German origins of the Kissel family of Princeton, Indiana. The earliest Kissel, Nicholas, came in advance of his brothers and parents in the late 1840s from Darmstadt, Germany, coming to the Port of New Orleans and then traveling upriver to Indiana. Any information on where the Kissels originated in the Duchy of Darmstadt would be appreciated!
