Could WISHING be WISSING?

In Reply to: Wissing family from Schleswig-Holstein by DAVID MOORE of 38

My paternal grandmother's maiden name was WISHING. The family lived in Buffalo, Erie County, New York, USA in the early 1900's. Her brother, George WISHING, had moved to San Francisco, CA, and there are a few descendants there and in San Diego. A current internet telephone-listing search turns up only about two dozen WISHINGs in the entire US. I located one family elsewhere in Erie County, but can't find a tie-in. I do believe the name was modified from something else; perhaps from WISSING.
