Default Question for Internet search masters

Okay, so my wife'* Aunt use to own a Tavern here in town. When she owned it it was called the Sky Way Tavern. Previous to that it was called Brandts Grill, and it is believed that the owner was George Brandt.
Anyways, her Aunt has an antique mirror that hung above the bar that was brought over in the late 1800"* to the early 1900'*. We think the style of it is "art nouveau fauna"
Her aunt would like to sell the mirror, which she believes is worth a few thousand dollars. She would like to contact the family of the original owners first to see if they would be interested in it.
With the information given, would anyone have any idea of how to track them down?
It was the Brandts Grill, in the late 1800'* early 1900'*, located in Fairview PA, Erie County, which was renamed the Skyway Tavern, which was then called the Walnut Creek Bar and Grill. . The Brandt Family came to the US from Germany.

Can you not check with your local Tax Appraisal District? They usually keep records for quite some time about current/previous owners.
