Geography mystery: Did any part of Polish Russia became German between 1880 and 1900? Specifically where? #poland #germany

My ggg-grandparents Sol HYMAN and Pauline LICHTENSTEIN came to US from Polish Russia / Russian Poland in 1840s.  i'm trying to narrow down where they came from specifically.

Their and their families' US census records are consistent through 1880.  In 1900 and 1910 the country of origin became Germany.  Nowhere I've looked have I been able to find territory that changed hands from Russia to Germany (Prussia) in those years.  Anyone know what may have happened?

Thank you,
Rob
