  • Abraham Saudek (1830 - 1902)
    death announcement states that he was a Kaufmann=Merchant, in Ruhestande=Retirement.
  • Alois Schwarzkopf (1866 - d.)
    Just tightening up his birth year based on his wife Rosa's birth year of circa 1874. Suggest his birth year as circa 1870. This opened up many references to a Alois Schwarzkopf born in 1866. Same person?
