Many of the family members are Baptist; would that be a factor?

to my knowledge the Lublin Project database does not have any Lutheran Germans in Piotrkow Pierwszy and only few in the surrounding villages.
"Piotrkow" usually refers to Gubernia piotrkowska, which included a large area with Germans living mainly in and around Łódź. See http://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gubernia_piotrkowska
As the records for 1887 from parishes Lublin and Rozyszcze have been indexed already and there seems to be no son to a Andreas Lang(e), I'm afraid you need to widen your search geographically.
