Biographical sketch of Frank and Annie:

I cannot discuss these two seperately because I never knew them as individuals. When I was a child, I did not even know their given names. I called them "Grandma and Grandpa Haning." That is what my parents called them, also. We saw them once a year at the Haning family reunion

The photograph above is from the book Matthew Haning and His Descendants. I believe my grandmother, Eva Haning Brooks is the woman standing on the left. This group is posed on the porch of the old homeplace. Grandma and Grandpa Haning sat on that porch and received hordes of grandchildren and great-grandchildren every Father's Day during the forties and fifties

Stories

Frank seems to have been a much quieter person than his wife. Several stories about Annie are told in two books about the Haning family. I do not own either of the books so I can't be sure, but I don't think they include any stories about Frank. I have two brief stories to tell here, one about Frank and the other about both of them.

My father, Kenneth Brooks, grandson of the Hanings, tells about a time when he was a teenager working on the Haning farm with several other family members. Someone ran out to the field yelling, "Grandpa's dead".  Everyone rushed back to the house and the doctor was called. I don't know whether Grandpa Haning was revived by the doctor's skill or the family prayed for him. At any rate, he did revive. According to my mother, who was the oral historian in our family, after that Frank Haning never did any work. He spent his time sitting on the front porch of the farmhouse.

It was on that front porch that he spoke to my mother about his wife's pretentiousness, "Annie says she's German. Me, I'm just plain Dutch." Explanation: Frank and Annie were both German but the original word for German was "Deutsch".  Germans and others who had picked up the word pronounced it "Dutch" but it had nothing to do with the Netherlands.

Pennsylvania Dutch are of German heritage
