William Henry Mahaney (b. 7-8-1844 in Hardy County, Va (now West Va.); d. 4-10-44 in California, Pa.) was my mother's grandfather. He was in the Civil War as a very young man (17). I have his Civil War hat and some other information on him, but am always searaching for more. His father was Thomas Mahaney and his mother was Mary Ellen Hunter (b. 7-7-1825 in Centerville, Washington county, Pa.; d. 8-10-1900 in California, Pa.)
Thomas' father was William Mahaney born in Culpepper (?) in 1767 and his mother was Susanna Schroeder (b. 1-25-1779.)
Mary Ellen's father was Joseph Hunter born in 1790 (?); he was in the War of 1812. He died in Alleghany co., Pa. Joseph's parents were Joseph Hunter from Londondery, Ireland; and his mother was Ann Stirling.
Mary Ellen's mother was Margaret Holman (b. 1800 (?) and died 5-24-1856 in Jefferson, Pa. Margaret Holman's father was Henry Holman born in 1758 in Washington County, Pa. and her mother's name was Catherine Keppler (or Shepler ??) Of course, I have a lot of data on my great grandfather who apparently was a brother of the husband of Angela Harris.
