Maurer and Erni in Alsace

My Erni/Erny family came from Bern, Switzerland (or so I was told!) Great grandfather John Henry Erny came to the US in about 1872. Settled in Pittsburgh, PA. His wife, Emma Ris, came in 1864. Her parents in Switzerland were Rudolph Ris and Anna B. Meyer.

Apparently there were Ernys in Switzerland, Alsace, and Germany. I wonder if there is any connection? Since I have no idea which Canton John and Emma were born in, I am at a loss to track down their parents, etc.

Any ideas?? Thanks, Marianne
