Hello. I believe you are referring to Gottfried Schimpf born in 1864, died in 1950 in Saginaw, Michigan? He was the brother of my great grandfather George Henry Schimpf born in 1880 in Oberdorf as well (married to Eva Elisabeth Stahle in Erlanbach, Russia 1906-08?) and also the brother of David Schimpf. Their fathers name was Heinrich Schimpf married to Elizabeth (last name unknown). I haven't been able to research further. If you have any additional information please share. Thank you!
