Searching for any and all people related to the Oberwarth family. Since there appear to be so few of them in this world, they are probably all related.
My line: Leo Oberwarth, a cloak merchant, was born in Holland, possibly around 1841. He died 1896, in New York, NY. He may have been the son of Leopold Oberwarth and Henriette Reichenheim, but this is still speculative. Leo's wife was Jenny Marcus, born in Germany. Leo and Jenny had six children:
1. Leo Louis Oberwarth, born 1873 in Brooklyn, NY, died 1939 in Frankfort, KY, married 1897 to Ruth Buckner Hawkins, born 1877, in Frankfort, KY, died 1951, in Frankfort, KY. Two sons: Leo Edwin Oberwarth, born 1897 in NY, died 1971, in Franklin County, KY, married 1925 to Zanna Faith Porter, born 1902, in Hampton, IA, died 1984; and Clarence Julian Oberwarth (my grandfather), born 1900, in Frankfort, KY, died 1983, in Tuscaloosa, AL, married 1935, to Lillian Murray Wiard, born 1904, in Frankfort, KY, died 1991, in Eutaw, AL.
2. Edwin Oberwarth, may have died of consumption about age 19.
3. Mildred Oberwarth, born in Germany, married Robert Esselbornm, born in NY.
4. Alice Oberwarth.
5. Gertrude Oberwarth.
6. Henrietta Oberwarth, born 1889, in Manhattan, NY, died 1984, married Edgar B. Vroome, born in NY. They had a son: Gorden E. Vroome.
