Two suggestions for you.
1. Try the series Germans to America to see if you can find the ship and the passenger list that applies. Since you have a pretty good hunch as to when they came, checking the Germans to America should be easy. Then use the LDS DEPARTING passenger list rather than the ARRIVAL list to see if a town is listed.
2. Check the 1920 US census for any children of the person or people who came from Prussia. In the 1920 census they were supposed to state the city their parents came from.
3. If you do discover that yours came from the Potsdam/Berlin area, please get in touch with me as that is where mine came from in 1858 and they settled in St. Louis MO.
Best of luck. John Fritsche in Santa Barbara CA.
