Henry Garretson and Minnie Garretson of Peoria, IL

Henry - born abt 1836 and Minnie about 1839. These are my great grandparents and I am trying to locate information on what happened to them. They indicate that their bp is Prussia in the 1870 census and they list my grandfather Freddy Garretson ( a twin) as a son. (actually Frederic Gerretsen was the correct spelling of his name). Then the next census shows that they are 10 yrs old and move in with the Lodder's. What does not match is Mary Lodder's birthdate - if Mary remarried or if Minnie and Mary are 2 different people. Then what happened to Henry? They had two other sons, John who was born abt 1864 and William who was born abt 1877 and they were born in Butler, Ohio. Does anyone have any info on this family?
