>>> I was always told the family was from Ruda Banyak Zemplinska - I have figured out that my grandfather came from Rudabanya in Zemplin county in Hungary. <<<Rudabanya is a place with a very small population in Hungary, due north of Miskolc.
To locate places in Europe, especially if you are not sure of the proper spelling of the place name, the best reference is found at http://www.jewishgen.org/ShtetlSeeker/loctown.htm
ShtetlSeeker will take you there via Mapquest, Multimap or Google.
On the 1910 map found at http://lazarus.elte.hu/hun/maps/1910/borsod.jpg
the village is found near the top-left edge in the beige area.
