I have searched the genealogy of R' Samson Raphael HIRSCH looking
for his extended family, and found only his father (Raphael Aryeh)
and grandfather (Menachem Mendel) - and the earlier generations
quoted by the BREUERs family tree. Is it possible that there were
no siblings? [...] I cannot find any siblings for R'SRH.
Quoted >from "Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch" by R. Eliyahu Meir Klugman
(ArtScroll, Mesorah Publications, Ltd., 1996):

p. 33
"[The Kuzari] was reprinted in 1838 by Rabbi Hirsch's younger
brother Hirsch (Harry) and another young student."

p. 185
"On Rabbi Hirsch's personal contacts with non-observant Jews the
evidence is scanty. He had a non-religious brother in Paris named
Harry, to whom he sent greetings every year before Rosh Hashanah,
and for whose repentance he said a special prayer every day in
Shemoneh Esrei."
