      There is also a town called Steinhübel, Kreis Neisse, located in
      Silesia, Germany. However it was a R.C. parish.

      Steinhübel (umlaut u) would be the German surname spelling meaning
      Stein = stone + affix hübel.

      http://www.iarelative.com /search/sea0599c.htm

      The Slovakia telephone directory lists 4 surnames under Modra in
      western Slovakia.
      2 spelled Steinhübel, 1 Steinhubel, and 1 S^teinhu"bel (Slovak version
      of German surname)
      And 1 Steinhübel listed under Pezinok.
