Shishwiak, Sisulgak, Sesulak, Sislock: Stephen, Steve

In 1892 my Great Grandfather Stephen Sislock (Sislock is the final spelling the family settled on)came to Forest City, Susquehanna, Pa from Austria and worked in a Coal mine. His wife Maria (Mary) came a few months later with daughters Maria and Teresa. They are shown living on Susquehanna St. in the 1900 Census with the last name spelled Shishwiak and only two of the children had their names spelled right, ages off a bit also. Maria's name was missing. The parents did not speak English. In the 1910 Census, Mother Mary is shown as widowed. She and her children are still living on Susquehanna St and now own their house. I have no further information on Mother Mary,or the missing Maria...or the father, such as when he died. If any one can steer me in a direction to check for more information, I'd appreciate it...
