Dear Chris, I have been researching my family history and it seems my Great Grandmother was named Pesch, although this has not yet been confirmed. Orginally my Aunt Gert said her name was Paszki, but more sources point to Pesch, but maybe it was Peschke.
Magdelena Pesch b. 1857 Poland, Germany d. 1941 Chicago, Il. She actually lived in the apartment downstairs from me, but before my time. She was married to August Parchem. They had childern: August, Joseph, Julius, Elizabeth, Gabriella, Mary Parchem. I know little more. Thanks, Joe Jeka firstname.lastname@example.org
