Rehlich couple in two little girls from Russia in Michigan late 1890s leave for PA

Does anyone know of any Woytovich or Waytovich who lived in Pennsylvania after dropping off two little girls in Berrien County, Michigan before 1900? The little girls were from Russia and the couple who took them in were Russian. The couple's last name was Rehlich, Roehlich, or even Roelick. Are there any stories in your families about this?

I have a 93-year-old friend whose mother was one of those girls. I would like to reunite her with her real family. Even her mother didn't know what her last name really was. She was just known as a Rehlich after that. The little girl was 6 years old in 1900 on the census of that year, named Mary.

My friend did some research on her own years ago and for some reason mentions the name Witt. She's as clear as a bell and still wondering about her mother. The girls never saw their parents again.

Thank you!
