All surnames Osiecki, Oshuskey
All places
Research notes I have hit a brick wall with the name Oshuskey.  According to grandmother, who is now passed, Carl/Charles Oshuskey md Johanna Boutz (b 1844-1926) immigrated to US in 1870 with daughter Rickey born in Hamburg 1866.  Another daughter Annie born in Shenandoah about 1876 and son William born about 1880 in Texas.

Earliest record I can locate is 1900 census with Johanna (Hannah) as widow with Annie and William.  Rickey md F.M. Lloyd in Texas about 1886.  No Carl/Charles records of death or immigration, etc. found. 

I have been told by other researchers that the name is likely from Poland even though census reports Germany - I understand the changing geography.

Any ideas greatly appreciated!
