If you are on ancestry.com you can see 3 family trees
with Reinhold in them - they show he has some living family.
You could try contacting the tree owners. One at least gives
a quite detailed entry about Reinhold, so it's likely to
be from a close relation.
None of the trees know who Reinhold's parents were.
