Another possibility is that the first Hani died in infancy, the second Hani
being your GG Grandmother.

How are there two sisters given the same names?
1 st Hani, my GG Grandmother b. May 6, 1866, d. August 3, 1905 I have
her official death record
2 nd Hani b. Mar. 16, 1869, M. Nov. 5 1898
I have her marriage record.
I think you have to consider that there was only one Hani, and whether
one of their birth records was mistranscribed. When making a decision
between a badly-written 'March' and 'May' guesswork could be involved,
and I note that you don't have two parallel certificates for any of the
two Hanis' life events.
