Wesslings in Southern Illinois

My ggGrandfather was George Wessling born in Prussia he married Clara Reitgers.
First place I have them at this point is an 1860 Census of Clinton County Illinois. They had three sons that I know of: George, Henry and Louis. My line comes down through George. He was born 5 June 1861 in Ashley, Illinois and married Anna Lammers 6 November 1888 in Bartelso Illinois. They had six children: George Henry, Rosa Helen, Joseph, Maria Josephine, Henry and Anna. My grandfather was Joseph Wessling born 23 October 1906 in Beckemeyer Illinois. He married Beulah Fern Axe 5 October 1929, they had eleven children and one still born child. I have much more information of course but I will keep this as brief as possible.

I would be happy to expand on this information and would love to here from anyone who has connection to this family.
