looking for information on immigration etc for Weit Rees (Reiss,Reitz,Reist) around 1830 from Bavaria Germany

Query by monkeyblonde

He was smuggled in with his brothers George and Michael. First they went to Ohio then to Bourbon County,Kentucky in 1838. Wiet(Viet) married Minerva Kimes (daughter of Stephen Kimes and Elizabeth Wycoff) and they had many children. They ended up moving to Kansas and that is where they both died. If anyone has any information on how and when they came to the USA or where they lived in Bavaria Germany I would really appreciate it. Have been looking for a long time now and have had no luck at all.
Thank you
