1861 William and John were of draft age for the Prussian Army and copies of correspondence with the Army showed that Theodor, their father, was not trying to get his sons out of the draft when he brought them to America in 1861. They had to renounce their Prussian citizenship when they left for America and were told they couldn't return to become Prussian citizens again. 8

1 May 1863 18 or 9/24/1866 Naturalized: Naperville, DuPage County of Illinois. N.B. Wheaton became county seat in 1870. Naperville would not give up the county records, so a night raid by Wheatonians seized many of the records. Some were burned, some sent to Chicago for safekeeping and were destroyed in the Chicago Fire of 1871. 18

This may be Johann, but I am not sure:

We've lost track of John. Helen Ballou said he left the family in Illinois and said he wouldn't be back, and indeed he was never heard of again. Census records listing various John Collings in Chicago don't seem to be compatible with this John. 8
