Family Surname: Schor, Leib

I am interested in the passenger on the first line of ship manifest, but I am having trouble reading the Old German script. His name is Leib Schor. Based on what I know about the family, the birthplace is a village named "Hinkowce" which was located in Galicia near Tluste. I would very much like to know what is listed as his last residence. The second half of the word looks like "owce" but the first few letters don't resemble "Hink" so I'm thinking it's another village with the same suffix as the birthplace. Any ideas? Thank you!

There is a Jakowicze in Ukraine today that looks like a match. The town would have been in Galicia back then.
