It appears he was NOT born in Sønderborg:

A Carl Erhard Schwartz registered for the draft 1918 in Detroit and listed birth as 18 June 1884 Denmark, nearest relative Mrs Augusta Schwartz.

Detroit censuses list him with a wife Augusta born Ohio, and the attached 1909 Cleveland marriage license appears to be them, listing his parents as Hans Peter Schwartz and Katharine Nielsen.

The censuses list Carl's immigration as 1904, 1905, or 1910, but this appears to be registration in Copenhagen of he and a younger brother:
