Karl & Joseph Stapf, Lawrence Co. OH

I am currently researching the ancestors of a family by the name of Stapf who were from Ironton, OH. I am not a relative of the Stapf family, just a friend.

I would like to find out if anyone knows where in Germany the family came from and when they arrived in the USA. I would also like to know if they came with other family members.

I have determined that my friend is descended from a Karl (Charles) Stapf who was born in Germany in 1848. He was married in 1869 in Lawrence Co. OH. I also find a Joseph Stapf who was born in Germany about 1849 and married in Lawrence Co. OH in 1870. I found no trace of them in Ohio prior to there marriages.
