With genealogy, anything is possible. She, Maria could be somehow related to your ancestors being that she was arriving from Staritrg.
Since your ancestor spoke German than most likely he was of German ancestry. I do not find SPECK or SPECH in Slovenia's phone book
You might have to hire a researcher for research in the other 2 Stari trg's church records.
One SPECK and one SPECH in Croatia's phone book.
SPECK and SPECH in Austria's phone book. So than these are 2 different family names.
