Haneys of Preston County and PA and ?

I am descended from a Matthew Haney, born 1824? in PA? who settles in Preston County, WV to raise a family. I have much info about this clan, but not back further than Matthew. He had 8 children to Eliza Murray Haney, b.1828? died 1867 in Preston County. The children are John M., b. 1847 d.1854, Sarah C., b. 1849 and married to John W. Wilkens 5 Nov. 1874, Alfred T., b. 1851 and married to Nancy Martin on 4 May 1871 and then to Mary M. Murray on 13 Sep 1888, Mary Caroline b. 1852 d. 1854, William Walter b. 9 Feb 1854 married to Melissa Evelyn Snyder on 20 Jul 1879 and he died 8 Jan 1930, Francis b. 23 Mar 1856 d. 1856?, Sanford [my greatgrandfather] b. 1856 married to Emma Olive Messenger on 8 Jul 1883 in Taylor County, WV and he died 7 Dec 1920 in Johnstown PA [ where I am from] and the last child is Elizabeth b. 1860 and married to Harmon Coch of Germany in Preston County on 18 Jul 1880. I have more about the Alfred T. Haney branch of this family. There was also an Amos Haney living in Preston County around this time. I have info on him and his ancestors, and am just trying to find a connection. It seems like I've been looking forever for Matthew's beginnings. Little to go on. But Amos's clan appears to have been from Monongalia County and around Pittsburgh from time to time. He is descended from Barney Haney. Email me and I will tell you more, if you like, or think this applies to you. You can tell me what you are looking for.
