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.

the Fellheim part is in my file, with minor differences:

Samuel Bacharach b. 23 Aug 1791 Fellheim, married 22 oct 1828 in Huerben to
Sophie Sila Burgauer b. 12 Dec 1803 in Ichenhausen; they had at least 9 children born in Fellheim, who (the ones who grew up) probably emigrated together with their parents:
Magdalene b. 25 Aug 1829;
Emilie b. 22 Sep 1830;
Fanny b. 11 Jan 1833;
David b. 21 Dec 1834;
Caecilia b. 21 Jul 1837;
Sara b. 14 Oct 1839;
Sigmund b. 21 May 1842;
Nathan b. 16 Aug 1844;
Marie b. 30 Nov 1847 - d. 10 May 1848 Fellheim;

for Samuel Bacharach I have only one brother Wolf b. 10 Jul 1794 in Fellheim - no further info.
their parents were Simon Bacharach and Magdalena NN.

Sophie Sila Burgauer was probably (the b.dates differ: 23 Dec 1802) the daughter of David Nathan Burgauer and his wife Antonia Mina Mindle NN. who had at least 8 more children in Ichenhausen, who were mostly married there: Heumann/Heymann, Schnattinger, Kahn, Henle, Wolf/Wolff;
btw. Sophie Sila Burgauer and my ggrandmother in Laupheim are 10 steps apart - like most Jews in the region.
