I tried googling the town and came upon yiskor and memorium data, however
I am at a loss as to the exact name of the town and if I can get other
information on this town. The surname Hochberg is on the list of
surnames, I just don't know how to continue with this.

Province.
Present town name Ukrainian has change slightly and it is known as
Podgorodishcheat 4942 2412, it is located just 6 miles NW >from Bobrka. Lwow
