Are you looking to trace them further back or find out what happened to them after 1855? Was KELLNER their name in Germany and they used BILLINGS in the U.S.?
I have the 1855 image in front of me. Henry was 48, born Germany, occupation laborer. His wife is listed here as Fredrica, not Rebecca. She was 39. The children listed are Agust, 12, Lower, 11, Lena, 9, and Loueza, 5, all born in Germany. They were residents of Utica for 1 year.
I can only see a transcription for 1860, but Henry, age 65, Frederica, age 44, and Louisa, age 10, are still in Utica. Their birthplace is listed as Saxony. It could be that Henry's age is mistranscribed, or was just recorded incorrectly.
By 1875 Frederica is gone. The NY state census for Utica has this household:
BILLING, Henry, age 68, b. Germany, laborer
wife Sarah D. age 60 b. Germany
dau KEIZER, Louisa age 25, b. Oneida, widowed, Tailoress
KEIZER, Carrie age 8
KEIZER, Frank age 6
dau REED, Lena, age 27, b. Germany, Tailoress
REED, James H. age 28 b. Germany, Fireman
REED, Laura age 4 b. Oneida
REED, Louisa age 1 b. Oneida
I can not find Henry BILLING in the 1870 census. But I did find his daughter, Louisa KEISER, age 20, b. Saxony, with her husband, Andrew KEISER, age 25 b. NY, and children Caroline, 3, and Francis, 1.
I found an MA death record for Frank J. KEISER, age 23, b. Utica, NY, died 7-Sept-1893 in Hinsdale, MA. Occupation: Brakeman. Father: Andrew J. KEISER b. Utica, NY, mother: Louisa M. BILLINGS KEISER b. Germany.
It looks like Louisa never remarried. In 1910 she is living in Utica in the household of her daughter Caroline GORTON and Caroline's children, George & Charles.

I am trying to research my family name Sennewald. I know that my Grand father was Fritz Werner Martin Sennewald, born in 1923 in Nordhuasen in Germany - but I cannot find any brith records (he moved and died in Wales - I have a copy of his death certifiacte). I have been told that his father was Bruno Sennewald who potentially lived in Nordhausen, Thüringen, Germany, but again, I cannot find any records. The only thing i can find is a record on ancestory.com which has a phone record for a Bruno Sennewald in Nordhausen, Thüringen, Germany.
Does anyone know a good place to continue my search?
