Could it be Kaschau? Sometimes n and u look alike in the old handwriting. It is north of Oradea, Cluj, and Tasnad and not unreasonable travel. Now in Slovakia, it was part of the Austrian-Hungarian empire.

Since you mentioned the town to be in current-day Romania,I would not exclude the possiblity of this town to be one of the below towns in the Csik region (old spelling, not the contemporary one).

-          Kaszon-Altiz

-          Kaszon-Feltiz

-          Kaszon-Imper

-          Kaszon-Jakabfalu

-          Kaszon-Ujfalu

FYI I have checked the gazetteer of the Kingdom of Hungary in 1892 and these are the only ones to be close enough…

 

I hope this helps.

Hi,
One of the town Kosice in Slovakia variations name is Kaschau.

On a US World War I document for a not-so-close relative, it says that he was born in "Kaschan, Hungary." The rest of the family came from various towns in what is today northwestern Romania. I would consider the target region to be bounded by a triangle of large places Oradea, Cluj, and Tasnad. I believe this relative also came from this region. I've searched the JG Town Finder and Gazetteer with various search strategies with nothing even remotely close.

The only reference to the town that I can find by googling, other than someone else also claiming to come from Kaschan, is a reference to the "Kaschan-Oberbergar Bahn" supposedly part of a rail network in Austria-Hungary.

Any suggestions? TIA.

Thanks to all the respondents. The main suggestions aside from Koson, Ukraine include Kosice, Slovakia (a.k.a. Kassa) and Kasov, Slovakia. However, in the 1930 census, this person indicates that he was born in Romania (and his parents in Hungary), which is why I suggested limiting the search to the Crisana/Transylvania region. By 1930, the places suggested were firmly in Czechoslovakia, not Romania, so I doubt these are correct. For those who were curious and feel this information might be key, his surname was FRIEDMAN.

Hello Mr. Stein                                                                                                           24th November 2020

I noted the word' Kaschan' --being born in Hungary and Hungarian is my mother's tongue --
I wonder if I may interpret it--via a spoken Hungarian lens--like ; was born--in Kachan--szuletett Kassan? Kosice? Kassoa? --near Satoraljaujhely 

or 
if the   authentic 'handwriting'  could be in front of me: I wonder Kaschan--I may perceive:  Koszony?--a shorten version of Mezokoszony?

or could be countless other 'perceptions' interpretations.
wishing you success

Kind regards

Hi Steve, 

I believe that the place you looking for is Koson in present-day Ukraine. In Yiddish is Kasan. Kaschan is the German spelling.
