I truly can not be the only person anywhere searching for the HANIE family.
Benjamin Franklin HANIE stated he was born March 3, 1821 Pendleton District, S.C. He was in Gwinnett Co. GA by 1837 when he joined a local unit, at age 16, to fight in the Florida-Indian War. He married 1839 Gwinnett Co., Ga. to Margaret Elizabeth MARTIN. He begun to practice his system of medicine in 1842. The family went to Pickens Co., Ga. sometime in the early 1850's & to Hall Co., Ga. right after the civil war. His descendants used & still use the spelling of HANIE, although my grandfather didn't care how it was wrote (he didn't know how to read or write) thus gradually our family went over to the common spelling of Haney, but his siblying's family stayed with Hanie.
