Michael, It seems that your Peter Dorscheid was b. 15 Dec 1814 at Kastel, Germany. He was the son of Michael Dorscheid (b 1782)and Margaretha Loch (b 1788). He left from Kostenbach in 1842 to immigrate to the US. He traveled with my DeTemple/DeTamble family, including Nicholas, who married a sister of Peter's wife.
Peter married Regina Backe. Regina's surname has been seen in US records as Bocky, Bocke, etc., so keep an open mind when searching. The spelling "Dorscheid" is exactly that way in the German records, but as you've seen it shows up in a variety of spellings in the US.
You should check the records at St. Cecelia's and Sacred Heart. I don't believe St. Cecelia's have been filmed, but it's possible that Sacred Heart's records have been.
The information I'm sending has been taken from a reliable source book from Germany.
Good luck in your search. -Patricia
