Surnames: Dick

I was trying to find my 3rd great grandfather record of his parents. Here what I do know. His name is Johann Dick who born on 10 Sep 1832 in Brunnenthal, Solothurn, Switzerland. This was on his passport that my great aunt had but his passport didn't have his parents name and birth just his name and birth which I had provided above.

He came here to America when he was 19 years old I did find his listing at Ellis Island Name
Johann Dick Birth abt 1832
Origin Switzerland
Departure Bremen, Germany
Arrival 16 Nov 1851 New York, New York
Destination Missouri

I even went to local courthouse to find his marriage records to see if I can find names of his parents there wasn't any due they didn't record any marriage record after 1885. However but I do have his death. No names of his parents.

My goal is find his parents names and birthdates and death dates if any and his siblings if he has any.

Any help I appreciate it
