Does your search seem to stop at 1815-16? Does your ancestor connection originate from Berlin, Prussia? Is there mention of 5 or 6 brothers and the Battle of Waterloo? Did arrival involve England and military transport?
Charles Frederick William was a Sargeant at Waterloo with the 60th Regiment. The brothers arrived in Halifax, were dispatched to Bermuda and back to Halifax. On return Charles remained in Nova Scotia while the brothers moved on to the U.S., Maine, New York, Massachusetts and Illinois.
Your ancestor arrival in 1815-16 may be raleted to Charles. If your details suggest such is possible I would like to hear from you. With added information, the search for Prussian ties may be simplified.
