Grandfather immigrated early 1900's

My Grandfather John immigrated to the US from Poland in the early 1900's, I believe Poland had no county status at that time. He lived in Chicago, he married a Scot named Johanna (joy) Morrison. My late father George William Macko said that the last name, before it was Macko, was Mi-nesh-neh-culski (excuse spelling) my father also said that there were other Macko's who chose to make their names Mieshko, mi-nech-ko. I don't know. There sure seem to be alot of Macko's out there. Growing up in Arizona, I thought we were the lonly ones. Nobody ever pronounced the name correctly, and alot of times I was asked where Macko came from, I just said Poland, and that it was the name my paternal grandfather chose when he got here (Ellis Island)
