Miller families in Colorado Co. TX

Classification: Query
Surnames: Miller, Dampken, Meherns, Richart, Harris
My great grandfather was Johann Miller. He was married to Mary Elizabeth Dampken. They were from Oldenburg Germany and came to Texas about 1947-1950, I think thru Galveston.They were married according to the Col.Co. Marriage Record Jan 28,1859 by J.C. Roehm a Lutheran Minister. I would like to know where this church is so I could see if their parents names are listed.

There were 4 children born in TX.: Anna married a Richart. Henry married another Miller. Emma married a Mehrens and my grandfather John who married Bertie Mae Harris from Orange Co. TX.

From Passenger lists I think Mary Damke came over by herself at age 17 in 1847. If I have my Millers right, Johann came with his family in 1849. Father Gerard, Mother Anna, Brothers Herman and Gerard, and a sister Elisa. If someone knows if Gerard Miller is my ancestor for certain, I would appreciate hearing from them. Also if you know who Marie Dampken's parent are.

I believe Henry Miller married Helena Miller, daughter of Frederick and Geismat Margaret Bartels.
