Thank you for the insight everyone. In jest, my Grandmother, used to bug my grandfather about being a Kuschub when she was mad at him. I would like to find out more about the culture... And when they started to intermingle with the German folks.....

Some people were named after their heritage or ethnicity: Reimann = Rheinmann = a man from the Rhineland, Mittelstaedt from Mittelstadt or Mittelstetten (diff. places), Noerenberg from Noerenberg near Szczecin, Preuss = somebody from Preussen (Prussia), Pohl from Poland, Russ from Russia... and Kaschube from Kashuby. They also could be merchants, who travelled in this area.
