Arthur,

There are several locations with spellings that are similar to the one you supply. Here is a results page with most of them:

If you are sure that your community was not in, or near the Austrian Empire, as some of these are, is there any other evidence that points to Gomel or other communities nearby. There is a place in the Poltava gubernia that is spelled like this.
