Does the Surname "Thisty" Originate in Roumania #general

Stein Lewis

My maternal ggm was Esther Thisty. I have not been able to identify anyone of
that name using JRI-Poland. I think that my ggf served in Roumania during the
Russo-Turkish War of 1877-78; and his sister married the well know Roumanian born
cantor, Israel Kupfer, which leads me to wonder if Thisty could have been a family
in Roumania.
