The HANEY side
HANEY = My grandfather told me that the Haney's came from Ireland, possibly during the Potato Famine. He never went into anymore detail than that. So far I can only go back 3 generations. Here they are:

He was in the campaigns in Libya, Africa and Italy (Anzio, etc). Out of a company of 200 he was one of the few survivors (he said six). He has entered the war as a reservist and because of a prejudice by the commandment, no reservists were ever promoted. So, he went in a private and came out a private. He received the Purple Heart when he was injured by a bomb blast that went off under his feet. But, there was so much mud and muck that it cushioned the blow. Also, he said the metal covered bible he carried in this chest pocket saved his life. When the US AIR FORCE became a separate armed force after the war, my grandfather joined up. He spent a total of 27 years in the service of his country.Joseph & Mabel had 3 children, the first died at birth, the third was
