John Kauffman’s daughter Maria Elizabeth married my 2nd great-grandmother’s brother Emile Schmitt in the 19th century.

Emile became an executive in John’s business, the Kauffman Brewery. The brewery flourished making John, his partner, and many others in the business very wealthy men.

John Kauffman rests in Cincinnati’s historic Spring Grove Cemetery across the plot from his former business partner and possible family member Rudolph Rheinboldt.

These two monuments are a sight to behold. And a reminder in stone of the powerful men they were during their time.
