Re: GAINEY/GANEY, Ananias and wife, Mary Sweet
Suzanne, I believe Ananias is connected to Micajah Gainey, the Loyalist who surrendered to the Swamp Fox.I found one little snippet by going to Google books and entering the name Ananias Gainey.

....Capt. (Ananias) Gainey as a flag from Major (Micajah) Gainey to know my intentions in marching this way and what terms I would grant them.....
There was also a query from 1998 on the Gainey forum about the two Gainey men.
