Wanted to give a special thank you to all those that helped me several years ago. I finally unraveled why my x2 GG John Przelenski(1856-1935) in Wheeling WV went by Schewinski. Took a lot of time, but figured out that the actual spelling was Przełęcki. When put into google translate, it says Schewinski when you hit listen. Had a relative of John that died in 1924, they lead to Lipinki. Sonnenfeld's lead to Ostrowitt, 5 miles away. And then found the marriage last night from 1880. Special thanks to Elzbieta, Ryzsard, Gilberto, and others, from 6-7 years ago for putting up with me. Thank you again, now have a trip planned out next summer...hopefully.

Lots of research to get to that point. Borders and language changes, almost have to know town origin, and even then you think you're crazy for sifting through 135-150+ year old documents. But it can make sense, once you unravel clues, and be relentless in looking.
