The Mary (Spranger) Zimmerli Family History

I'm just beginning to research the SPRANGER family. (The name used to be spelled with an "s" on the end - SPRANGERS - prior to 1900.) My g-g grandfather, John Sprangers (1824-1884) came from Lage Zwalue, Holland in May 1847 with his brother Matthias. They landed in NY, then settled in Sheboygan Co., WI. John's son William (1866-1920) was my g-grandfather. He also lived in Sheboygan Co. My grandfather, William Thomas (1895-1979), moved to Green Bay, WI, and was married to Genevieve Tuyls in 1917. He moved to Akron, OH, then Fort Wayne, IN. My father, Robert Louis (1934-1995) lived in various parts of Indiana, and moved to MN in 1972.
Not too many Spranger families in the U.S., so this shouldn't be too tough, right?
