Seidels related to Dierschkes

Seeking any Seidel families with a family connection to Joseph Franz and Pauline (Seidel) Dierschke, especially Seidels who have roots in Washington/Austin/Lavaca counties. Joseph, Pauline and two daughters immigrated in 1867, landing at Galveston and first settling in Austin Co., then moving to Moulton in Lavaca Co. They arrived on the same ship as her parents Joseph and Magdalena (Matschke) Seidel and siblings Marie, Ernestine, Anna, August, Franz, Paul and August. Those Dierschkes eventually had 10 children. I feel these families followed family members who arrived in the 1850's. My families came from Friedberge, near Silesia, Prussia. I'd be interested in seeing copies of any correspondence or other documents which may prove a connection between the Lavaca Co. group and the Washington Co. group. It would help me in going backwards. I've hit a blank wall. Thanks to anyone who will take the time to share!
