He was born in 1878....Austria
I was thinking about checking the same town as the Plis family came from.
From what you have said here in reference to the Plis family, I am presuming that he was born not in Austria the country, but the part of the former Poland that was ruled by Austria. In the last Polish partition from 1795 - 1918, Poland didn't exist as an independent country, it was ruled by Austria,Russia and Prussia.
I cannot find any reference to this being a Polish surname, although maybe others would know better than me.Unfortunately, it's entirely possible his name was not spelled correctly and there is no way of knowing if this was a mistake or not!
I have found a link to a Michael Hubinsky born in Austria in 1877 ( estimated birth date ), the other name variants turned up nothing of relevance. It is probably not him, but family members listed include Catherine, Mathew, Nicholas, Mary, and Anthony. It is a 1930 Census listing:-
Incidentally, what is the connection between the two differently named families? The more information you can provide would give everyone a better chance of helping you.
