Is that the Christian KAUFMANN that was born 3-Jul-1854 to Hans & Elizabeth KAUFMANN and died 28-Jul-1925 in Bedford, Ohio? If that's your Christian KAUFMANN that would make us related, but quite distantly, something like 8th cousins once removed, the common ancestors being Peter & Katharina (GSTEIGER) KAUFMANN (both born in Grindelwald in the 1640's). Does that fit with what you have? My branch of the family is descended through Peter & Katharina's son Bartholome Sr. (through Walthard, Christian Sr., Christian Jr., Johannes "John" Sr., and Peter J. KAUFMANN in Grindelwald). John Sr., his wife Magdalena, and their eldest 9 children immigrated to Wayne County, Ohio in 1869 where they had a couple more kids.
