Henry C. Wiegand, last of Antelope Co, Nebraska

I'm searching for information on an ancestor named Henry C. Wiegand, born Oct 19, 1860 in Canton, MO., to Dietrich and Barbara (Sinn) Wiegand. The only evidence that I have that these are the correct parents is his wedding certificate. He appears in Saunders Co., NE in an 1885 census as Henry Wiggin (I believe this is him). He married Elizabeth Stoner Emerick in 1886 and had 2 children, Fred in 1887 and Alice in 1890, both born in Antelope Co. At some point, he disappeared or died and absolutely no one knows what happened to him. I'm searching for info pertaining to early life as well as after the birth of his children. Since there are other Wiegands and Sinn relations in St. Louis and other Missouri localities, and there is a Henry born in 1860 to a William and Mary Wiegand, my preliminary theory is that William was a relation and baby Henry was given to them to raise. Only a theory. Also, Dietrich and Barbara were both deaf and dumb.
