German SIG #Germany Help with locations in East Prussia/Lithuania #germany

I just got off the phone with a relative that gave me some interesting
information but nothing I can pinpoint. I'm hoping that you all can help.

My GG Aunt was supposed to be >from Hedecruk near Leipzig in East Prussia.
She met her husband, who's family were shingledeckers, when he was looking
at trees. His family was >from Tavriz in/near Kovno, Lithuania. My GG Aunt
always claimed her mother was German.

I've been unable to determine what communities they are referring to using
Shtetl Seeker. Does anyone recognize these shtetls? Also, when my GG Aunt
and her father arrived in 1904 (at Ellis Island), they listed Akrnauschken,
Germany as their last place of residence. Does anyone recognize this
location? Thanks for any and all help in advance.
