Hi, I'm looking for information on the Gustainis name/family.

It was my grandmothers maiden name, and her Grandfathers name was Jurgis Gustainis, he had two brothers I know of (via my grandmother who is 92 and still living) Valentine, and Anthony. She also claims one of the brothers (Anthony I think) was captured during the Russo-Japanese war.

Jurgis Gustainis settled in West Pittston Pennsylvania, and married a Lakowski. Oddly my grandmother remembers her mother being called a “Zukas” which I believe refers to small clans of Lithuanians that were from the same towns in the old country (sort of like small “gangs”). That is also where Jurgis passed away. Just for reference my grandmother’s name is Anna Wierbowski (Verbauskas on her wedding certificate which is a Lithuanian name for the Polish name Wierzbowski).

Any insight or information that anyone has would be greatly appreciated.
