Surnames: Jeske, Ewald
Researching my family but hit a dead end. My great, great grandfather Michael emigrated to the US around 1892 along with his wife and approx. 1 year old son. Apparently the spelling of the last name changed around that time from Jeske to Yeski. His wife was Elizabeth (possible last name is Ewald), and their son was Frederick August Jeske. This branch of the family settled in Connecticut.

I'm stuck on making the connection to where they're from in Germany, so I can't research any farther back. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
