I am trying to sort out the relationships among the Haynie/Haney families who passed through or settled in Morgan and Scott Counties in IL between 1833-1850.My direct ancestor is Alden Haney, born about 1797-1798 probably in KY.He married Jerusha Harris in Jefferson Co., IL in July, 1820, and ended up in Morgan/Scott Counties in IL by 1833.He may or may not be related to the Francis Haney born Prince Edward Co., VA, April 19, 1754 who served in the Revolutionary War and was living in Morgan Co., IL 1832-1835, then returned to Jefferson Co., IL by 1840, living in the household of William Hicks.
Between 1830 and 1850 there were a number of other Haynie/Haney families that appear in Morgan/Scott Counties (Scott was formed from Morgan in 1839).The list includes: Richard, born about 1779, wife Lieurana (born about 1777) Henry H., born about 1806 KY, wife Ellen, Ormsby/Ornsbe born about 1803 KY, wife Zerilda (born about 1817), T.S., born about 1810 KY, wife Elizabeth, William, born about 1816, KY, Jefferson, born about 1828 TN, Miller, born about 1829 TN, James, born about 1823 TN, Isaac, born about 1820 TN, wife Anna Cooksey, and Dillard S. who married Lucinda Richards in Morgan County in 1833 and Elizabeth Wright in Morgan County in 1846.Almost all of these families, with the exception of Alden's and Isaac's, moved out of the county before 1860.Richard and Lieurana died (he in 1846, she in 1844) and both are buried in Scott Co., IL.
These Haynies/Haneys intermarried with the Welch family in Scott County and are related to the James Haney family that returned to Jefferson Co., IL from MO.
The Ornsby/Ornsbe and Zerilda Haynie family make me think that these families are somehow descended from the Ormsby Haynie line of Northumberland Co., VA.I'm guessing thatRichard and Lieurana are responsible for many, if not all of these families.
Do these names sound familiar to anyone?
