Grentz, Grantz, Grendzick-seek info on German ancestors

I am attempting to help someone try to find information about his ancestors who immigrated to the United States from East Germany in 1906. At the time, the name was Lorenz Grendzick/Grendziak. In 1910 census, his wife is shown as Mary and the following children:
John age 19
Joseph age 16
Edward age 14
Helen age 12
Mary age 11
Pearl age 7

No census record exists past 1910, leading us to believe that they "Americanized" their last name, quite possibly to Granger, Grentz or Grantz.

If you have any information on this family, please let us know. Thank you.
