Stephan Alt in Germany

I can't seem to find birth or marriage information about my great-grandfather Stephan Alt. Approx. birth Oct. 1817 in Hesse Darmstadt, Germany -- possibly Vogelsburg. Immigrated to USA in 1867, died in Carroll County, Illinois in 1873. Why can't I find birth information with his parents' names???

Dear Neoma, I just started on ftdna and we seem to be distant relatives. How is still unclear to me. I looked at your ancestors and read about the mr Stephan Alt who arrived from Europe. I tried to find more about the Alt family in the region he came from and found this:

===============================

They lived in central Germany at about 100km from Darmstadt.  Of course I cannot say they are directly related to Stephan, but there is a Stephan Alt who was a son of Jacob Alt (1886-1956) a son of Johan Alt of 1847, who was a son of Leonhard of 1817 ( http://gw.geneanet.org/elkealt?lang=nl;pz=timothy frederik;nz=lehr;ocz=0;p=stephan;n=alt;type=tree ) and ( http://www.werelate.org/wiki/Person:Leonhard_Alt_(2) ).                                                                                

 I don't know how relevant this is to your questions, but I like to give you this information.

 

With regards,
