Dear Ms. Storye: Thomas Hanway, ?-1792, lived in Chester County, PA, during the middle of the 18th century. He was married to Elizabeth ? and they became home owners in New Castle County, DE in the 1780's. They had six children, Samuel, Thomas, Jesse, David, John and Elizabeth. Samuel was an officer in the Revolutionary War and at its conclusion he was given a large tract of land in western Virginia, now Morgantown, WVa. Samuel never married but convinced his brother Jesse to join him. Jesse, 17? to 1804, married Rachel Ridgeway; their eldest child, Ezekiel Samuel Hanway (Hanaway), 1794-1873, married Mahalia Cox, 1813-1882. Ezekiel Samuel and Mahalia's first child was George, 1830-1904 and he married Emily Martin. Their fourth child, Ezekial, 1837-1917, married Appalonia Martin.
Thomas' 1792 will has the surname spelled three different ways in the same document, HANWAY, HANAWAY, and HANNAWAY; thus many of his descendants have various spellings of the name.
Paul Hanway of Florence, OR, has done extensive Hanway geneology research and clearly is our national Hanway expert. J. W. Hanway
