Any hope for finding records

I'm trying to trace my great-great grandfather. I know his name, his birth date (October 11, 1856) and the quote from his obituary that he "was born in Bavaria." I have a probable date of immigration, but can not find any record of the ship he came over on or any other information that might narrow down where in Bavaria. Is there any hope for me finding out where exactly he was born and who his parents were (he was Catholic, do they still have baptismal records available that far back or town records), or have I most likely reached as far as I can go with that particular branch of my family tree?
