Wow, this is an old post. I've since uncovered quite a bit in my Schwarzkopf line. My Schwarzkopf's are from Iowa and Minnesota. My grandfather, Edward Schwarzkopf was born in St. Killian, Nobles County, Minnesota, his parents are Micheal William Schwarzkopf born July 29, 1872 born in Norway, Benton County, Iowa and mother Mary Heisterkamp, born March 10, 1879 born in Arcadia, Carroll County, Iowa. Michael's parents came over here from Germany, his father is Anton Schwarzkopf, born October 28, 1839, born in Edelbach, Bavaria, Germany and mother Catherine Weipert was born March 22, 1838 in Bavaria, Germany. I also know that Anton had a brother named Bruno and they both came over here in 1866. I also have a couple more generations back and the children if interested.
