Georg and Caroline had one son who died while they lived in Germany: Heinrich Wilhelm was born August 1, 1859 and died December 2, 1859.
In 1868 Georg and Caroline emigrated to the United States, sailing from Le Harve, France and arriving in New York City on June 22, 1868. They were accompanied by their three children; Hermine Caroline Wilhelmine (born September 4, 1862), Hermann (born August 29, 1865), and Georg Bieritz (born January 10, 1868).
