Trying to locate more information on the parents of Adam Schwarzkopf, born 22 January 1863 in Germany. Adam married on 26 Jun 1889 to Helena Sterkel (b. abt July 1866) in Chicago.

Adam Schwarzkopf aka "Adam Schwarzkoff" & "Schwartzkopf" & "Schwarizkops" & "Schwarzkoyf"

Helena Sterkel aka "Helen Sterkel" & "Sterbely" & "Starkel"

On his 1942 death record from Adam's parents are listed as "Unknown Unknown" from "Unknown, Germany" with residence in Chicago. I'm an amateur when it comes to genealogy research but it appears Adam Schwarzkopf's mother is *possibly* Elisabeth Dietz (maiden: Binks) who was married to Louis Dietz ("Diatz") born abt 1826 in Gemany.

In the 1880 U.S. census there is an "Adam Diatz" (Dietz?) born about 1863 listed as son of Louis and Elisabeth. I suspect this could be the same person as Adam Schwarzkopf (DOB: 22 January 1863) living with his biological mother Elisabeth and step father Louis Diatz. Nothing confirmed of course but that's all I could surmise thus far.

Thanks for your time.
