Thank you so much for your reply. I did not know where to look next for Jesse Hanway's parents, though I have his will from Monongalia Co., WV, where he died. Could you tell me where you got this information? I have been looking for a published genealogy of the Hanways, but have not found one. Is there one? Do you know the family further on back up the line? I love to go back as far as I can. I wish I had something to share with you in return, but I don't; I know nothing of the Hanways, except that I have Jesse's will, and I know his descendants through his daughter Rebecca. Thank you again so much. You've saved me much vain searching.
