John Butt from Germany to Wilkin County

I'm looking for information on Johann Friederich Butt, born 1827 in Hannover Kingdom, Germany - possibly the city of Hannover itself, or a village called Oschersleben. He was married twice. His first marriage was about 1851 to Metha Alpers (or Metta Ehlers). They had at least two sons - one named Henry, the other named John or Frank. By 1867, he had married Margaretha Tiedemann and immigrated through Baltimore in June of 1867. They then had four children in Mason County, Illinois - Mary, August, Frank and Anna. Mary is my great-grandmother. They moved to Iowa, back to Illinois, then onto Minnesota. John died in 1917 in Wilkin County, Minnesota. Any information regarding John and his second wife Margaret Tiedemann is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
