The best that I could find was the family of Henry 42 and Mary 40 Hanyene (Hanyun) that lived in Springville, Susquehanna County in 1860. Included in this family was Geo. 3. All were born in PA, but it wasn't uncommon for enumerators to get lazy and just default the places of birth to the state they were in. Oddly I could not find any member of this family in any other census under any spelling. It's as if all except perhaps Henry, Mary and George all disappeared or died. I couldn't find them anywhere in the 1850 census either.
I found a widowed Mary Hanyon in the 1880 census living in Wayne County that would seem to fit the bill.
George's death may have been recorded at the Susquehanna County Register of Wills Office. It may not tell you much except to give you the exact date of death. Check with the Susquehanna County Historical Society to see if they can help you find his obituary.
If you know of any of George's siblings I suggest researching them. Their death records or obituaries might have data on the parents.
You could also try the Wayne County Historical Society an the Northeastern Pennsylvania Genealogical Society in Shavertown to see if they can help you.
In case you don't have it here is where George is buried: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=hanyon&GSbyrel=in&GSdyrel=in&GSst=40&GScntry=4&GSob=n&GRid=22311749&df=all&
Beyond that you would probably have to check wills and deeds at the county courthouses for at least Susquehanna, Luzerne and probably Wayne Counties.
