The Americanizing of a name…

I have spent the last week doing some research on the Poray’s. Most of what I have found are the different variations of the name. When the family came to America, the name was Porai Koshitz. When Mary passed, it was Poray Koshetz. I have recently been in contact with a man from Russia who has given me the Russian variations of the name. They are…

Porai-Koshits
Poray-Koshits
Poray-Kochits – french in id passport
We also seemed to have Americanized the name Anatole from Anatoly. 
It seems that William dropped the Koshits from his name when he got married. Just need to find out when Porai changed to Poray?
