Looking for GRUENBAUM Roots in Bavaria at the First Half of the 19th Century #germany #names

Dear Genners,

Trying to help an American friend who started discovering his Jewish roots though he was raised as a Christian. 
He knows a lot about the family in the USA through documents in the USA but has no idea about those who stayed in Germany. He assumes that there were
 more siblings in the family in Bavaria(no idea in which city). I myself have no experience in Jewish German genealogy in the 19th century. Here is what he wrote to me:

"Millard Greenbaum: born 1898, in Missouri and died 1958 in San Diego, CA. (See the attached photo of his headstone at Ft. Rosecrans National Cemetery, which identifies him as Jewish.)  Millard’s paternal grandparents immigrated to the U.S. from Bavaria prior to 1858, and his maternal grandparents immigrated to the U.S. from Moravia prior to 1877.


Millard’s father was Solomon Greenbaum: b. 1858, Maryland, d. 24 February 1944.


Solomon’s father was Marcus Greenbaum:b. 1828, Bavaria, Germany, d. 16 March 1896, Baltimore, MD.) He was the son of Levi Greenbaum.


Solomon’s mother was Fanny Bacarach: b. 1836, Bavaria, Germany, d. 1896, Topeka, Kansas.


Fanny’s father was Samuel Bacharach: b. 1790, Fellheim, Unterallgau, Bayern, Germany, d. 1866, Philadelphia, PA.


Fanny’s mother was Sophie Burgauer : b. 1799, Fellheim, d. 17 September 1875, Philadelphia, PA."

He believes that he probably has some relatives there.

Any help will be appreciated.
