Help Finding Birth Record in Hamburg circa 1866-1869

Classification: Query
Surnames: Oshuskey, Osiski, Osiecki, Boutz, Henderson, Erwin
My maternal gggrandmother was born in Hamburg May 5th 1866-1869. Shortly after her birth the family left for the US.

Her name is Rebecca/Rickey/Ricky/Rica (I have seen spelled all these ways). Her last name is spelled Osiski/Oshuskey/Oshusky (Also seen spelled all these ways). Her mother was Johanna/Hanna/Hannah nee Boutz born in Germany in November 1844/45. Her father was Carl/Charles Osiski/Oshuskey/Oshusky also born in Germany.

According to 1900 and 1920 census they came over to US in 1869/1870.

One daughter, Annie, was born in 1875/1876 in Shenandoah. One son, Willie/William, was born in 1879-1881 in August in Groesbeck, Limestone County, Texas.

Apparently the father died before 1884 as I did find Limestone County Tax records with Hanna Oshuskey's name so I assume the father was already gone.

I am trying to find out exactly when they came over to US and my maternal gggrandmother's birth record so I might figure out where in Germany/Prussia/Poland did they come from?

Any help, thoughts, ideas, etc greatly appreciated as I have hit a wall on this for the last several years.

Thanks!
