At familysearch.org is the 1917 marriage record of John and Anna. His parents are listed as Harry Kurchock and Eva Polishen (both deceased). Her parents are listed as John Sheuskie and Mary Napa. The 1930 census shows John immigrated in 1913 and Anna in 1906. I could not find the ships they arrived on.

There are many records you could check for more data. I would start by getting their death certificates which should help to confirm their parents' names. Check with the Historical Society of Schuylkill County or at the Pottsville Free Public Library about their obituaries. In addition to listing their parents they may also list exactly where they were born and any surviving siblings. Their Social Security applications might also have the exact town they were born in. John may have filed for naturalization at the Schuylkill County Prothonotary. His papers might listed exactly when and where he arrived in addition to where he was born. Anna most likely came with her parents.

Spelling is of course always an issue and Eastern European names are quite often misspelled.
