Cooshek or Kywek from the Ukraine
I'm stuck on a fellow born 1886 in the Ukraine/Russia. Religion is Greek Orthodox.
He was in Canada and married by 1917. I'm hoping to learn where exactly he came from and who his parents were.
His name is Peter Cooshek. Original spelling may have been Kywek.
Suggestions or help in searching?

He married Catherine Ponolnsky (Polny). Their first child was born in Ontario, Canada in 1917. Their other 2 children were born in Ontario in 1920 and 1922. I have been unable to find them on census records for 1921.0
