Ostertag, John Jacob Philadelphia

I am new to this but here goes....

My Grandfather was John Charles Ostertag - lived in Philadelphia from 1891 to 1979.
His father was John Jacob Ostertag and he was born in Meglingen Germany in 1857.
His father was Johannes Ostertag born in March 1810 and died in 1875 and Theresia Ostertag born 1829. Does anyone have records of brothers and sisters?

Apparently my Great Grandfather owned a saloon in Philadelphia and we have the greatest picture of it. The doors actually have the name OSTERTAG woodworked on them - I will try to scan there somewhere that I could post it?
