Query: Albert B. Traeder, Lake County

Hi, Would you point me in the direction of a person that can be hired to do some research for me of Lake Co Records...Here is what I am looking for: 

                I am looking for the parents and siblings and/or any other information available from Lake County, Indiana, records of a person named Albert B. Traeder,  b 29 Nov 1849, Germany,  d Aug 15 1884, Lemars, Iowa.  He was married Jul 11 1876,  in Cook County, Illinois. (those records are online) to Bertha Marie Woodke,  b 7 Feb 1852, Prussia. He immigrated 1886 and d 13 Dec 1932, Odebolt, Sac County,  Iowa.       
                Bertha immigrated w/parents & siblings. She is the daughter of a Lake Co. settler/farmer John Woodke and Johanna/Hannah (nee Karl) Woodke. They had 8 children. She was child #3.  All children, in order:  William Frederick Woodke b1847, Henrietta Caroline b1849, Bertha Marie b1852, Otto William b1854, Charles John b1856, Herman Christian b1858, August Daniel b1861, Franz Frederick died as infant.
                There have been book bios written on members of the Woodke family, which is nice but I have found NOTHING on Albert B Traeder, husband of Bertha W.   Of course there were other Albert Traeder's living at that time but none with the same birth year.
                I believe he must have lived in Lake County at some point in order to have met Bertha. If I hire someone to help and that person does not find anything, I'll probably have to hire someone to search Cook Co. records.
                I've written this quickly and probably left something out.  The tree is assembled and located on  See profile #LW8Q-PXD  Bertha Marie Woodke  1852-1932. Thank you
