Wegener from Mecklenburg

My husband's great-grandmother, Johanna Louise Wegener, was born 29 May 1836 in "Hamburg, Neubrandenburg, Mechlenburg" according to the family Bible in my possession. Her father was "F. F. Wegener" born 26 Jan 1795. Her mother was "Regina Deters" born 15 Feb 1799. According to the Bible, the children were:

1. Friedrich Ludwig Joachim Wegener, born 15 Jan 1827
2. Teodor Adolph Martin Wegener, born 23 Feb 1831
3. L. Johann P. Wegener, b. 22 Nov 1833
4. Johanna Louise Webener, born 29 May 1836
5. Maria Wegener, born 30 Aug 1842

Family records say that Johanna Louise Wegener (she was called "Louise") came to America in August 1856. She married Christian Philipp Dittmar in 1862 in Toledo, Lucas County, Ohio.

I may have found Louise in the 1860 census of Toledo, Ohio but the microfilm is very hard to read and I am not sure of my translation. It is:

E. P. (Jos.?) Waltz, age 20
Luisa Wagner, 24, born Mecklenburg
T. H. Wagner, 28, born Mecklenburg
August Wagner, 18, born Mecklenburg
Jacob Weiss, 32, born Mecklenburg

Does anyone else have access to this microfilm who can add or enlighten me as to the transcription?

Does anyone have any Wegener ancestors who fit any of the above descriptions?
