Rossick family, Livingston,MT might be Rosique, Rossique, Reisweich

Seeking info on Rossick family of Livingston. Only known facts are: Mary Rossick gave birth to son William Oct. 6, 1911. Gave him to her sister, Rose (Mrs. A.C.) Leopeer who took him to Twin Bridges orphanage. He was adopted by Mrs. Walter Gum of Carbon Co. Nov. 3, 1913. William relates a story of visiting his mother's grave in a Catholic cemetery in Livingston in the late 1950s or early'60s. She may have died in the flu epidemic of the teens or early '20s. Researcher questions the spelling of the name as it may have been given verbally to clerk who wrote it phonetically. Similar sounding names are Reisweich and Rosique or Rossique. One document lists mother as being Polish. Would appreciate anyone with knowledge of a phonetic match in Polish to the name Rossick. Also, spelling of aunt's name seems suspect. Suggestions for variations of phonetic matches to Leopeer wanted. Thank you.
