Cvechko, Cvecko, Chez

I am looking for any information on families with the Surname Cvechko or Cvecko in hopes it may lead to learning more about Peter Joseph Cvechko or his father Matthew. Pete is believed to have been born abt June 1885 perhaps in St. George (Czechoslovakia). Some of his records state he was born in Austria. In his teens, Pete worked under his father Matthew as a game warden or similar. Matthew Cvechko worked as an oversee of lands for a wealthy family or in some such capacity. I wonder if he may have worked at the St. George Forest perhaps for the Thurn-Taxis aristocracy (I don't know much of this history). Pete came to America between 1909-1914 entering into the US through northern New York. As far as we know, no other family members came to America and he had no contact with them. Peter married Mary Magdeline Chez perhaps born Sept 1895 in Austria. It is believed they dated or married before Peter left for America and she then joined him. Family members say Mary often spoke of Karlovy Vary which I believe is now in West Bohemia, Czech Republic. Some of the dates don't quite make sense. The first information for Pete & Mary which I do know is correct is that they were in Fayette Co, Pa in 1915 when their first child was born.
