Carl Heinrich Breetz (Britz)

I am trying to find the correct surname, birth and parents of

Carl Heinrich Breetz born about 1794
Married Philippina Marx (1809-1843) in 1826 in Merzig
Carl Heinrich seem to have been the mayor of Heusweiler for a short period of time
His wife and two children died in the 1842-1843 timeframe
Carl Heinrichs father might have been a colonel in the army and might have been named
Johann Freidrich Breetz and his mother was Friederice Carl who lived in
Berlin at the time of her death.
Carl and Phillipina had 9 children

Any info appreciated
