Location of town Fuchany, Roumania

My uncle Samuel Harris Groper (occasionally spelled Gropper) lists his birthdate and place of birth as 22 May 1899 at Fuchany, Roumania in his 1918 US Naturalization Petition. As this a script (not typed) entry, I may be misinterpreting the "n" in Fuchany.  I have been unable to locate a town or region in Romania with anything similar to this name.  And since he left Romania at a very young age (~age 5) I realize that he may spelling the name phonetically. 

Can anyone help me find his birthplace in Romania? His parents were Max Gropper (from a farm somewhere in northeastern Romania) and Annie Cohen (from Dorohoi, Romania). 

Gratefully,
Joan Mattson (USA)
