John Mersdorf 1832 or 1833 Germany and New York

I'm looking for information on a John Mersdorf born in 1832 (or 1833).

He came to America from Germany (possibly Prussia?) in 1858. His first wife was Frederika Schmitt b. 1834. They had 11 children (Charles, John, Anna Marie, Sabina, Ursula, Martin, Margaret, Elizabeth, Helen, Jacob, Mary). It looks like they settled in Buffalo, NY.

His second wife was Bertha Myers b. 1859. She came to America in 1886, also from Germany and they were married sometime between 1887 and 1899. They had 2 children Bertha and Libby.

I am especially looking for any information on John Mersdorf or Frederika Schmitt so that I can trace the family back into Germany.
