Surnames: Kurysh Kuresh

Looking for information on the surname Kurysh. Grandfather Jacob Kurysh born about 1888 to Saphat and Palagie Kurysh (nee Komarnicka). According to a Canadian marrige certificate of 1912 he was born in Harysmiv Horodenka. His death certificate just states place of birth as Austria.I am unable to find any records of immigration or naturalization for him or any Kurysh family members. I have also checked the census'. Our family has used the spelling Kuresh for many years now if that helps. If any one can help it would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you.
