Michael and Rosalie Posner, orphaned in 19th C Europe.

My grandfather, Michael Posner and his sister, Rosalie lost their father, David, a soldier in Austro-Prussian War, killed in 1866, and their mother three years later. He was 6 years old. Rosalie was one or two years older.
I want to know who looked after them. There must have been grandparents or uncles and aunts, but I don't know.
There is a family myth that one of his uncles was part of the revolutionary uprisings in Europe in 1848. Allegedly he was sent to the US as a black sheep! It was said that he got involved in the Civil War, but this time on the winning side.
We would love to know anything at all about these distant forebears
