I'm looking to see if anyone knows anything about Schurs who lived in Mobile, Alabama in the early 1900s. My 2nd great grandmother and her sister were Schurs and lived in Mobile, and we've heard from family lore that originally they had a brother who lived in this area, which is why they eventually settled there as well.
Unfortunately there are a lot of holes. We don't know his first name, or if he kept the name Schur. We think he moved to Utah and had no further contact with the family. As far as we know the family was originally from the Ekaterinoslav Gubernia in Ukraine in what was then the Russian Empire.
This is really like searching for a needle in a haystack, but I want to research every possible lead I can. If anyone has any information please let me know!
