I beleive her brothers name to be Heinrich (Henry)he was married to Francisca.
Francisca died while on a trip back to Germany in June of 1896 and her body was returned to Illinois.
Mary Elshoff married Anton Dirksen, also from Gronau. They were married in 1855 but I do not know if it was in USA or Germany.
Any hints are appreciated.
