I would guess that when they immigrated their name was NOT Bighouse but the Ukranian equivelant

Also may not be Carl and Caroline either

alternate could be Bighaus


Now this is a big stretch but the ages of Peter and Adam match
and their last name is similar to the village name you gave

1920 census

Caroline Bighans 59
Peter Bighans 24
Adam Bighans 22
Elisabeth Bighans 17

I would say their name starts with a V
