Hi, Mary, Just found your posting from last year.There is a whole gaggle of Hanways in the Kansas City/St. Joseph MO area. Some time ago I talked to two of them and they believed their ancestors may have come from Prussia, but changed their name when arriving here. You might contact William L. Hanway, 5516 Ash Ave., KC MO 64133. They seem to be related to ferdinand. They are not related to me, unfortunately.
Good luck, and let me know how you come out, please. Paul Hanway, email@example.com
