Maleschefsky from Prussia to Detroit - 1888
My Grandfather was Otto Maleschefsky. He was born in Prussia in 1887 and came to the US with his parents Frederich Maleschefsky and Mary Kusc Maleschefsky, and an older sister, Meine/Minnie. Mary died in Detroit in 1923. On her death certificate her father's name is given as John Kusc, and her mother as Tesia Marquardt.However, on my grandfather's WWI draft registration he gave his mother's maiden name as BRUCHESCI. I can't figure out how he got Bruchesci from Kusc.
I'm open to any suggestions.
