My GF came from "Prussia" in 1891 to Cleveland as Julius EWERT. He married Minnie (Wilhelmina _____) in 1891, almost immediately. So far, no documents give her the same surname twice.
In 1892, what appears to be a brother, August, joined Julius in Cleveland.
Eventually, in 1899, his parents, August and Wilhelmine SIESS?, and several other brothers arrived in Cleveland, too: Hermann (Herman) and Fritz (Fred) along with 2 married sisters and their families.
Julius and Minnie proceeded to have 14 children that I know of, 13 of whom became adults. In the 1900 and 1910 censuses, Julius' family had adapted to the Americanized EVERT and by 1920, they were calling themselves EVERETT (story goes that his oldest son was looking for a job and met with a lot of anti-German sentiment, so they switched to the English form, but I don't know what Julius and Minnie did about their accents).
However, as far as I can tell, Julius' brothers retained the EWERT spelling with some documents cropping up as EVERT.
If this all sounds familiar to you, and your immediate immigrant ancestors came from Prussia via Cleveland, perhaps we have some close relatives in common! Let's talk.
