Switzerland

I am a 6th generation descendant of Johann Michael Bergmann B 10/29/1802 and married unknown date Johanna Catharina Trautman B 2/10/1809 and I am trying to track down their homeland to know where our heritage originated. Several documents list different places of birth...Savoy, Switzerland, Prussia, Saxony Germany, and Sunderhousin Germany.They had 2 sons "charley" Carl Friedrich Bergmann B 8/11/1833 and Christian Heinrich Bergmann B 1/4/1836. They arrived at Castle Garden NY from Bremen Germany 8/23/1853 and went to Seneca County, Ohio and then Crawford County, Ohio where their 3rd child and only daughter Amelia Bergmann was born 7/21/1854. John died in Defiance County 2/20/1885 and Johanna 3/17/1900. Help!!! I am trying to track down the homeland of my ancestors to try and discover more about my heritage. It was said Johann had one brother Henry who stayed in the homeland but not sure and have no names of either Johns or Johannas parents. Any info would be appreciated.
