The Conestoga wagon is a good choice as a graphic for the Haning page because it was invented by Germans. My branch of the Haning family in America began in Pennsylvania, where the Conestoga wagon originated, and many family members undoubtedly traveled West in such wagons.

Matthias Wilhelm Henning is said to have been the father of
Matthew Haning

Matthew Haning was born about 1730 in Germany
He married Margaret McKinney (Peggy) about 1783 in Washington County, Pennsylvania
Matthew died about 1807 in Alexander Township, Athens, Ohio

Matthew Haning, Jr. was one of several children of Matthew and Peggy

Matthew Haning, Jr. was born in 1760
He married Mary Cuylinger
Died about 1837 in Athens County, Ohio

Aaron Haning, Sr. was a son of Matthew and Mary

Aaron Haning, Sr. was born in 1830
He married-----------
He died in 1896 in Montague County, Texas

Here, the different lists I have looked at get confusing. Two Aaron Hanings are both reported to have been born in 1830. I have chosen to leave this puzzle for the time being and skip down to my great-grandparents generation, where I am reasonably sure that most names and dates are correct.

Marion Franklin Haning was a son of Aaron Haning, Jr. and his 3rd wife, Mary Jane Hamilton

Marion Franklin Haning was born July 4, 1865 in Montague County, Texas
He married "Annie" Hawk

Marion Franklin Haning was born July 4, 1865 in Montague County, Texas
He married "Annie" Hawk - the facts are in doubt here but it is my belief that they were married in Siloam Springs, Arkansas on January 1, 1888
"Frank" died in Seminole County, Oklahoma on April 20, 1958
"Annie" died in Seminole County, Oklahoma on August 1, 1959

Will died in Ardmore, Oklahoma on August 4, 1958

This page is created from a variety of sources. Because I have few supporting documents, I urge serious genealogists not to copy what I have here. This list is intended mainly as information for my descendants. I am making it available to them, or to anyone else who wants to use it as a beginning point to do serious research.
