Query: OHMIE/BAUCH of Benton and Jasper Counties

I’m looking for information on Wilhelm Freiedrich Ohmie married Karaline Katharine Helene Bauch in Germany in 1883. They immigrated to the US and arrived February 6, 1884 at the Port of Baltimore. They settled in Gilo Township in Benton County, Indiana. Their first child was born May 2, 1894, Heinrich August Ohmie. They may have been tenant farmers. Wilhelm applied for Naturalization papers on October 13, 1886. They relocated in Remington in Jasper County prior to 1886. It is believed there was a child born that died in 1886 or 1887 because Maria Anna Ohmie was born April 9, 1888 and it was recorded as the 3rd child. Maria Anna was delivered by M. F. Reigle in Remington. The fourth child Johann Deitrich Ohmie was born Jan 23, 1880 in Remington. They may have been tenant farmers there also. It is believed they left the area around 1891 after the harvest. I have been given this information and need to know how to verify it with documentation. Or where and when the 2nd child was born, lived, died and buried.

Can someone help me or guide me? Provide charges? I have a map that shows where the property was and itemized chattel mortgages applied for and what was held as collateral.
