I am typing in a response to the one that Amy Grubs posted. My name is Walter Mauney and I live in Blairsville, GA. The Rush Mauney that she is talking about that lived in Blairsville was my dad. He lived most of his life in Blairsville and was friends with as well as being related to Amy's dad, Harrell. My dad passed away in 1969, but I can remember waiting at the mailbox with my dad for Harrell to bring the mail and that he would give me a piece of gum. My dad's name was Luther Rush Mauney and he was a son of Charles S. Mauney (Charlie). My grandfather was the youngest son of Sylvanus Mauney and Louisa Hill Mauney. My grandfather had three brothers and three sisters. His brothers were named Martin Luther Mauney, George Rush Mauney, Vance Mauney (Amy's great grandfather), and his sisters were Mary Mauney, Alice Mauney Owenby, and Laura Mauney. Sylvanus Mauney moved to Blairsville in 1868 from Cherokee Co. NC and my grandfather was born here that same year. My dad was named after two of my grandfather's brothers, Martin Luther Mauney and George Rush Mauney. Several of Uncle George's desendants live in Cleveland, GA and you might want to contact them for information on that part of the family.
