Perhaps you are looking for this place

Chitominsky sounds like Chotimisk.

Have you looked for immigration documents of his/her relatives? Perhaps their birth place can clear things.
1/13/2021 2:07 PM Maybe the name is related to Zhytomir (┼╗ytomierz in Polish). Major city now in Ukraine.
Zhytomirsky would mean "of Zhytomir".
Ostrog is 100 km west.
The city was at some time a capital of Volhinia
Gubernia.
