Searching for kin of John Schwarz, b. 1840, Germany. Family came to NYC 1855. John went to Savannah, married first Elizabeth Endres (1846-1865). Daughter Laura Schwarz b. 1859-1889 and Caroline (1863-1876). John m. second Mary (Magdalena) Geil. Four children: Mamie, Frederic, Theckla, and John Jr. John owned Savannah Steam Bakery. Served as mayor of Savannah 1889-91 and sheriff of Chatham County, GA, 1901-1906. Also served on the staffs of two GA governors.
I believe one kinsman may be a great great grandson, Kurt Rau.
