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