Jacob Weigle, Birthplace and Family

I am looking for information about Jacob Weigle. I have been getting some very good information on his life in Illinois. His Pennsylvania background is what I am looking for. I would like to find out where in PA he actually was born, parents name's and wife's last name, brother's and sister's etc. According to family and census records,he was born in PA in 1824, probably Lititz, Lancaster Co. Census records show that his parents were also born in PA. In 1848 he was in Carroll Co. IL to purchase some land. I cannot find him on the 1850 census, IL or PA or any of nine other states that I have checked. About 1850-51 he was married in PA to Mary (last name unknown). She is thought to have been born in PA. Their first three children, Benjamin, Elizabeth and Elias were born in PA. The third, Elias, was born in 1854 in PA and their fourth child, Henry K., was born in Carroll Co., IL in 1856. Two more children were born after Henry, both in IL. He was married a second time in 1864 to Mary E. Netzley. He lived the rest of his life in Shannon, Carroll Co., IL. He died in 1893. Any help will be appreciated.
