Ehling's from Hungary/Germany

My Ehlings arrived at Ellis Island from ?Perjama? (sounds like Pajamas said my grandmother) Hungary in early 1900s. I found records on Ellis Island site. Peter Ehling came over first with son, Stephen (I don't think he had any children), and about a year later came his wife Eva Frank with the daughters. The family has always said they came from Germany. Two more daughters were born in US, my grandmother, Amelia Ehling, and her younger sister, Nancy, were born in Cincinnati, OH. Nancy had no children. They then migrated to Detroit/Dearborn, Michigan. Peter and Eva are buried in Holy Cross Cemetery in Detroit. They lived on Military St. in Detroit. Am trying to start some discussions on Ehlings. I have information on the Ehling 'sisters' descendents. Could use any help with the Ehling and Frank European ancestry since I do not know any German. Am very interested to find out exactly where 'Perjama' is.
