Stuck and Confused~ Can anyone help?

Classification: Query
Surnames: Feis, Sorg
I'm trying to find my 3rd great grandparents, Celesine Feis and Franciska Sorg in the ship lists. I am trying to trace them back to their birth places in Germany but 1st I need to find them when they arrived here (USA) and left Germany.

I believe I have (I hope this is the correct person) Franza Sorg: Arrival on June 10, 1854 at New York, origin was Baden, departure was Le Havre, France and the ship was Zurich.

I have Celesin Feis who arrived at New York in May 1848 with no ship listed.

I have checked with the IMGT(sp?) and neither of them are listed on any passenger list and if fact the ship Zurich is not even listed.

These 2 I do not know much about: I have no parents for either one nor do I have birth dates only guesses. Celestin was born about 1821 in Baden and Franciska was born about 1830 in Baden. I believe they married here in the USA but I've yet to find their marriage. They both ended up in Stillwater, Washington County, Minnesota where they had their family and raised them.

Please, I do not understand immigration / emigration so if you can help me out I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you,
