Hanlines in W.Va., Illinois, Nebraska

I am descended from an Abraham Hanline, dates of birth and death unknown. Abraham and his wife Hepekiah, nee Hayes, moved from West Virginia to Illinois in 1863. They were of the Quaker religion.

Abraham had five sons: Daniel, Samuel, David, Issac, and Jacob. Daniel was born near Oakland, West Virginia, on April 4, 1852. Daniel and his wife Mary, nee Bush, moved to Saunders County, Nebraska, in 1879. Daniel is buried near Ceresco, Nebraska, as is his brother, Samuel. We have had some limited contact with descendants of their brother David, living in Illinois, Ohio, and Missouri. The fate of Issac and Jacob, and of Abraham himself, is unknown to us.

Daniel had ten children, the progeny of which are too numerous to be listed here unless someone really wants to know. I have complete records if anyone wants them.

I am hoping that someone can help me connect Abraham up to his predecessors, and/or help me find out what happened to Abraham and his otherwise unaccounted-for descendants. I have seen here references to a Jacob Hanline, son of Abraham, but the dates don't match, unless my great-grandfather Daniel was born ten years after his father's death. :-) It still seems too coincidental; I wonder if we aren't looking at cousins/uncles with the same first names.

Any info anyone can provide would be appreciated; I am quite willing to share anything I have in my possession.
