Do you have any birth dates for the immigrants?
Also, do you know from what German state they came?
While I find several references of Jacob Brox in Berlin/Kitchener, I have not found him or his brother Philip on any passenger list.
I found the passenger list of a Johan , Margaret , and Phillip , who immigrated in 1857!
I have found the passenger list for a Catherina ZIEGLER, 19, who immigrated on the ship BALTIMORE arriving in New York on 21 September 1849. Will send you the image of the passenger list if you believe it's her. She came with another person named Ziegler, possibly a sister or cousin.
So if, as you said, they were married in Buffalo sometime after the 21st of September 1849, this would tell me that they knew one another before they immigrated, thus, they were probably from the same place / town in Germany.
BTW I live in Columbus Twp, St Clair.

Greetings list friends,
Do any of you have passenger records for ships arriving in Baltimore before
September 1849. My ancestors Jakob BROX, his brother Philip BROX and
Jakob’s fiancé Katharina ZIEGLER sailed from Germany to America in 1849.
Jakob and Katharina were married in Buffalo, New York in September 1849.
Then they migrated north into Canada and settled in just north of Berlin,
Ontario (later called Kitchener). A relative checked with the LDS Church in
Kitchener, Ontario but could not find any information on their immigration
to the U.S. and then Canada. Can you help?
