      I checked further and did find the Christopher Waisches family in the 1901 Canadian census for Nipissing, Ontario (WAY up north!). Charles is included in this census and is 19 years old, so he probably was moved out on his own by the time the 1910 US census was taken. People living in the household in 1901 were:
      Christo  male, head of household, married born 7/15/1838  age 43
      Julia, female, wife, married, born 9/4/1863  age 38
      Charles, m, son, single, born 9/22/1882, age 19
      Mary, f, daughter, single, born 4/11/1886 age 15
      John, m, son, single, born 6/15/1895, age 5
      Johnston, Martha, daughter, single, born 10/26/1897, age 3
      Johnston, Christina, daughter, single, born 2/26/1900, age 1
      This fits with your immigration time line, too, as Charles would have been 2 when they immigrated from Europe in 1884. Please let me know if there is anything more I can do to help!

      Hi everyone, I am a new member looking for the birthplace (or any other info) of my Great-
      Grandfather and Great-Grandmother. Their names were Christopher Waisches (b. July 15,
      1858) and Julia Pookes(?)(b. @1866) and they came over to either the US with their son,
      Charles Waisches (b. @1883). I believe they were married @1880. I haven't been lucky
      enough to uncover their immigration nor ship records. Most of the records I've dug up on
      them say they were from Germany. Charles' war registration says he was born in Vilna,
      Lithuania but I'm at a dead end there. Also, some records say they were from Russia....and
      one woman who's ship manifest info says she was a cousin of Christoph Waisches and was
      from Medwilu, Russia (which I can't find anywhere).

      Anyone here know the name Waisches?? Which is now Waishes. Or could maybe point me in
      the right direction of where to go from here.

      Thanks so much for any help you can give!!

      Lisa Waishes xx
