Town, looks like "Bilincz" outside Odessa

Hello, I'm wondering if anyone has better luck that I at reading this handwritten city/town that an ancestor came from, as listed on the 1909 Ellis Island passenger list. Its written twice, first as the town he most recently resided in, and then as the town his nearest relative lives in. It looks like Bilincz. And the second time its written, it looks like it has "Mobilev" after it, and then his sister's name, which I also can't read. The full page is here, he's third from the bottom, line 28:

Later on this document he lists his birthplace as Odessa, and other times he lists Kherson, so if there's a list online of Jewish settlements around that area of Ukraine, that might help me puzzle it out.
