long shot but Johann Reck relatives lived in Germany 1914

Johann F. Reck (my great grandfather) left Bremen, Germany and arrived New York City, USA on March 22, 1875. Around 1911/12 he along with most of his family moved to Newark, Ohio, USA. When he died on Feb. 27th 1914 a newspaper article in the Newark Advocate mentioned he had a brother and sister in Germany. Since the departure records of Bremen for that time no longer exist I have no idea where in Germany he came from. Are his relatives still in Germany? Are you reading this and thinking maybe it's the Johann you've been looking for too?
