Kirschke in Schlesien 1860s

My Grandfather was Paul Otto Alwin KIRSCHKE, born Oct. 1859 in Goldberg, Schlesien. Today this is called ZLOTORYJA, in Southern Poland. His Mother was a Baudisch, his Father possibly named Franz. After a divorce(?) Franz lived in Berlin and remarried. Later son Paul O.A. apprenticed in Berlin, "sneaking" out of Germany in about 1882, ending up in Milwaukee, Ohio and finally Texas ca. 1884-85. It had been said his Father sired two more sons. If there is more of this family today, I should like to find them. And would really like to find out about "Franz" Kirschke. I have NO info.
My brother has one son, a Navy Seal and he has one very young son. So, the name still survives in this line. My neice, a Kirschke, married a Kirschke (this is one for the record books). We have searched and searched but find NO connections.
My regards, Doris Kirschke Brown . . . .a Texan in Florida
