Benedict Omps

Classification: Query
I am trying to find information on Benedict Omps (1798-1863) born in Germany. I have a family story saying that Benedict and his sister Margaret were stowed away on a boat headed for America by their mother in order to get them away from an abusive step-father. They were discovered on board the ship and sold as indentured servants to a Puffinberger upon arrival. I haven't been able to find any resources to back this up. Does anyone know how Benedict Omps came to America or where in Germany he was from?
