Town called Obenshania or Obenshain?

I am searching for a town called Obenshania or Obenshain (note: my spelling it likely incorrect). My great grandmother's family was supposedly from there, but I cannot seem to locate it on any historical or present-day maps.

I'm not even certain it's in Austria because in the forty years of census records I have for her, the birthplace listed for her changes literally every 10 years... Austria, Germany, Hungary, and Romania. I am assuming it's because the borders were changing around the Austro-Hungarian Empire. (Her death certificate listed Austria as her birthplace, though.)

I'd be so grateful if anyone has information about this town/village...

Thanks!
