I have been researching this family and have discovered the identity of Bernhard Zerkowitz and his brother, Adolph:
LAZAR ZERKOWITZ was b. in Leipnik, Moravia, 20 April 1822, s/o Markus Zerkowitz (b. 1793) and wife, Jachid (Kraus) Zerkowitz. [Witnesses to his birth record were his maternal grandparents, Salomon and Ziperl Kraus.] Lazar remained in Leipnik but frequently traveled out of the country as an "agent". [I have a copy of a passport issued to him in 1870.] He was still alive in December 1881, but I don't know his date of death.
Lazar was married to BETTY WINTER, who was also still alive in December 1881.
