Jacob, John, and Max Fuchs of Stamford, Connecticut

Looking for any information of these three brothers who immigrated from Germany about 1893. Jacob Fuchs, born June,1869, in Oberhekenhofen, Germany, married Anna Meyer in Germany, moved family from CT. to Allegheny County, PA, Lorain Co., Ohio, and, finally, to Jefferson County, Kentucky, where he died 29 March, 1929, and is buried in Calvary Cemetery, Louisville, KY. Max Fuchs, born August, 1867, married Margaret (MNU), also in Germany, had three children, and remained in Stamford, CT. John Fuchs, born August, 1871, married Teresa (MNU), about 1897, probably in the Stamford area, and had two known children. He also remained in the Stamford area. All three of the brothers at one time worked for the bronze factory in Stamford. Jacob took his family back to Germany about 1899 but returned to the States in 1910 and went on to Pennsylvania.
Would like to connect with family members of this group.
Jacob's only living grandchild is now 89 years old, she knows she has cousins, but has lost contact with them over the years. Any help with this group would be truly appreciated.
