Elizabeth! Both Phillipp Schuck and Anna Maria Keßler were distant relations of mine, he more distant than she; they were also direct ancestors of Ned Siegel of Belleville. I suggest that you review messages 176-177 in the Schuck Family Forum for a little background; know that he and I have come a long way genealogically since their posting. I've forwarded your post to him. Between the two of us, we should be able to answer some of your questions. You may prefer to take this conversation to e-mail.
