KUNZ family-Cook County chicago ILLINOIS

Searching for relatives of the following KUNZ family who may have moved from Wisconsin to Chicago, Illinois:

Looking for a KUNZ family as I have very old photos of them in my possession. They were related (somehow) to my ZIEBELL ancestors. This is the family I am looking for. They were in Milwaukee, WI, 2711 Grand Ave up until 1917 when I lose them. Jacob KUNZ was a barber. Then one of my ancestors ELLA ZIEBELL shows up and lives in Chicago, IL until her death in 1965. She lived with the KUNZ relatives for a while, so perhaps she followed them into Chicago, IL. so maybe the whole family relocated then. Perhaps your relative is a descendent.

Jacob and Bertha KUNZ 1900 Milwaukee WI Jacob age 33, (a barber in Milwaukee)
Bertha, wife age 33
Arthur, son age 8 (turns out to be Arthur Emil John KUNZ b 30 July 1891)
Hilda daughter age 5

Jacob and Bertha KUNZ 1910 Milwaukee (still a barber)
Now living with them in addition to two children above are three members of the Siebell family (americanized version of ZIEBELL their true name):
Ella Siebell (ZIEBELL) age 25 (died in Chicago 1965)
Caroline Siebell (ZIEBELL) age 88
David J Siebell (ZIEBELL) age 46

Note: Ella Siebell (really ZIEBELL) had a sister named Bertha ZIEBELL. Both girls were sent to the US from Germany in March 1904 by their father to live with an 'Uncle William'. I have no idea who this is but know the KUNZ family are relatives because of photo groups. I've been trying to get more info on the family. Here is the Ziebell (Siebell) family who stayed behind in Kiel who shipped the two girls to the U.S. One Ella Siebell is found living w/ the Jacob KUNZ family in 1910 census.
