My grandfather was Arthur William Scherr (Scheer). His father's name was Nicholas Scheer (Scherr). They were from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I am trying to trace Nicolas back to Germany, and determine his relationship to Reinhard von Scheer of WWI fame. I have no information on the birthplace of my g-grandfather, nor do I have info on the name of his father. My grandfather told us that Vice Admiral Reinhard von Scheer was his grand uncle. I know that Reinhard was born in Obernkirchen 30 September 1863 and died in Marktredwitz 26 November 1928. Any help with this search would be very much appreciated.
