While searching about this last couple weeks, I found reference to the Hannas of Martinsburg, VA and allied families in the Revolution and post-Revolution time-frame, in one of the google books:
Henry T. Tuckerman (Henry Theodore Tuckerman) 1871 _The Life of John Pendleton Kennedy_
pg 42 (51 in pdf)
My mother was in delicate health for many years before this, and travelled a great deal.My brother [Andrew] and myself were her constant companions on these rambles.Our circuit always ended at Martinsburg, where I passed a month or two always in hot weather.My grandmother was then alive [Mrs. Philip Pendleton, Ann Patterson or Agnes Patterson, daughter of William Patterson & Hannah Vance] and took great delight in having my mother with her.
The family in Martinsburg was large; my mother's eldest sister, Mrs. Hunter, lived there with her husband, Colonel Hunter, and a house full of children.Philip C. Pendleton, and Edmund, James and Henry, all younger than My Mother, were at home [David Hunter, Philip Clayton Pendleton, Edmund Pendleton, James Pendleton & Henry Pendleton]; Sally and Maria, now Mrs. Dandridge, and Mrs. Cooke, were very young then.I remember my grandmother's sister, Mrs. Ferguson, an old lady who used to come in from the country, somewhere near Martinsburg, and stay a few days at a time with us...

There was a kind old dame in Martinsburg who was one of our tutelary saints, old Mammy Phoebe -- what her other name was I have never heard.I think she had been General Stephens's house-keeper...
There was a family of Hannas who lived a few miles from Martinsburg, relatives, I think, of my grandmother.There were several brothers of them, and I believe not one who was not over six feet three or four inches in height.The father of these had a little farm on the Tuscarara [Tuscarora], where he kept a school.To this school I used to go with some of my comrades, during my long summer visit to Virginia."
