Andrew & Barbara Wiedemann Europe to Indiana

I'm searching for more info on ancesters, life and decendants of Andrew Wiedemann b. about 1820 in Amsterdam, Holland. His 1st wife died prior to his passage to America in 1850. Peter was their (only child?) son.
On the ship from Holland, he met Barbara Ritter, b. about 1834
in Paris, France. They married and settled in NY,NY.
Andrew established a brewery and delivered Wiedemann Beer to the
saloons. With his savings, he moved his family to a homestead
near Spades, IND. My greatgrandfather Jacob b. 7-11-1852 near
Spades, his sister Eva(Hornsberger) of Seresco, Iowa, and a
brother Mike. Other children's names aren't known.
Jacob m. 1878 to Wilhelmina Haley and they had eleven children
born and raised near Norfolk, NE.
As mentioned before, Jacob dropped an n to Wiedeman:
Wondering if the Wiedemann Beer family from Kentucky? is related
to Andrew, his son Peter, and where him and Andrew (b./d.) are
buried? Any of his other children? Thanks for any help.
