In John J. Haney's CSA file, it's written he "Died at home in Gwinnett Co. Ga Sept 2, 1863." The Gwinnett Historical Society published a large book of all known deaths in the county, and they included him, but his burial place is "UNK." Either he never had a stone, or it has deteriorated somehow.
I did however find out about Melissa. In the ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 20 September 1912, page 10, in the Mortuary notices:
"Mrs. Melissie Haney.
Mrs. Melissie Haney died yesterday morning at her home, 51 Powell street, at the ripe old age of 76, being survived by two sons, W. S. and I. B. Haney. The funeral will be held from the residence this afternoon at 2 o'clock, and the interment will be in Greenwood cemetery."
Then on page 12 of the same issue, under the Funeral Notices:
"HANEY--The friends of Mrs. Mellisie Haney, Mr. and Mrs. I. B. Haney and Mr. and Mrs. W. S. Haney and family are invited to attend the funeral of Mrs. Mellisie Haney this afternoon at 2 o'clock from the residence, No. 51 Powell street. Interment at Greenwood cemetery. Pallbearers are requested to meet at the private chapel of Harry G. Poole at 1:15."
The only other thing I would mention is that there is a William S. Haney buried in Gwinnett County. This William was born 10-04-1860 and died 02-17-1929. He was the husband of Nancy Elizabeth and is buried in Friendship Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery on Dogwood Road.
Hope this helps.
