Thramers from Hangenstein(?)

I am searching for the place of origin and ancestors of Josef Thramer supposedly born 20 Jun 1838 in Hangenstein, Austria. I cannot find a town on the map the nearest match being a Hangendensten on the border with Germany. In looking at the LDS database there is only one entry for a Thramer that was married to a Kramer. Could the name Thramer have come about due to a mispelling?

Josef married Caroline Tilecher(born 23 Apr 1834 in Hangenstein) and came to Nebraska and died in Ewing, Nebraska 14 Apr 1913. The couple had 3 children of which I am aware: Maria Therese (born 8 sept 1861 in Austria) , Joseph Karl (born 14 sept 1859 Austria) and Caroline (born 1865 in ?).

Maria Therese married Bernard Konert in 1878 in Humphrey, Nebraska and died in 1940.

I would appreciate any information on the ancestors of Josef Thramer, whether the name was Kramer or Thramer or ? and what the town or village name was if not Hangenstein and where it is.

Thank you.
