Bonin family from Prussia (1880's)?

+1 vote

My greatgrandmother was Martha Bonin,born in 1881 in Preiswitz,Schlesien,Prussia. She had a sister name Marie. Their mother died 1889(?), father had alcohol problems, so Martha and Marie were raised by a grandmother.

Martha immigrated to the United States around 1902. I know about her life after that.

Marie lived in East Berlin, Germany in 1950 and her married name was Kaczmarek.

That is all the information I have. Thank you for any clues.
