William & Frederika VON LOESSE of Westfalia

I don't know what her maiden name was, but Frederika was born in Silesia "about 70 miles from the Polish border". She first married John PLASMAN in 1794 and they had a son, John. The elder John died not long after his son was born. All of this occurred in Silesia.

Frederika then married William VON LOESSE in 1813. They settled in Garbeck (part of Balve) in Westfalia and had two children, Frederika (married Professor Joseph Johannes H:UECKER) and William (who inherited the bulk of the estate since Frederika and Prof. HEACKER had accompanied their son, Dr. William Joseph HEACKER, to the U.S.

Looking for any information I can find on the VON LOESSEs. Particularly interested in how the name mutated to LAWSHAE or LAWSHE and why the VON was dropped.
