Does the marriage record show a different place associated with his
name? You might also check the 1869 census to see if he's there that
early and if he is, the "origin" name might suggest where he came
from if a town name is given.
One of my female ancestors married a guy who matches your situation.
The census provided me with a Lemko village only 5 miles north of the
Tatras that proved to be key path to his family line. Now I have only
two more lucky finds to make.
