I decided to do another search for the church they likely attended in New York City. St. John the Baptist Roman Catholic Church was just around the corner from where they lived and served the German immigrant community. I looked up the history of this church and discovered that there was a fire in 1847 which burned it to the ground. From 1847 until 1851, the Church of the Nativity served the congregation. I did a search for Church of the Nativity and found that FindMyPast has this church included in their Catholic Church records collection. I signed up for a 14 day free trial and did a search. The very first record that came back was their marriage record in St. Nicholas Parish, New York City.
In this transcription, it lists Fanny as Anna Ziegelmilch and her parents as Dauli Ziegelmilch and Victoria Siefrie. Given the newspaper article found noted that the Ziegelmuller family was a relation to Elizabeth Dunzinger, I'm very confident that should be Ziegelmuller.
Here is the transcription:

I looked back through the emails the researcher in Aichstatt sent me. Leonard Ziegelmuller's parents were Paul Ziegelmuller and Victoria Seefried! Leonard and Anna Ziegelmuller were definitely brother and sister. The Victoria "Seidlenar" in the 1855 New York Census and Victoria Seifrei found in the Dunzinger marriage record was Victoria Seefried, at least as found in Leonard Ziegelmuller's marriage record.
