Hello,
I've checked the Hoffman's "Polish surnames", but unfortunately I haven't found the clear explanation of this surname.
Maybe is has roots from miś, “bear; fat person”, or from given names starting with "Mi-" such as Michał, Mikołaj,
Miłosław.

There is also mentioned a surname Miszkin, from Lithuanian miškinis, “from the forest” or Polish
miszkinie, “kind of mushroom” —both Miszkinie and Miszkinis are Polish names of several
places in Lithuania.

I searched the contemporary distribution map, but there are no results for Misznik.

In Geneteka (database of indexed vital records) there are several Misznik people (in different locations): https://geneszukacz.genealodzy.pl/index.php?search_lastname=Misznik&from_date=&to_date=&rpp1=&bdm=&url1=&w=&lang=pol&op=se

Maybe the original spelling of your ancestor's surname was different? For example Michnik?
