David and Mourning (part2)

·· George Bandy (559, 18-1228) (1853 - ?) married Laura Berry (about 1854 - ?), and they had 13 children.

··· Emma Jane Bandy (1875 - ? ).

··· Cora Bandy (1876 - ? ).

··· James Bandy (1878 - ? ).

··· Fletch Bandy

··· Daniel B. Bandy

··· Cora L. Bandy

··· Barney Bandy

··· Benjamin Bandy

··· Kathleen Bandy

··· Deforest Bandy

··· Cicero Bandy

··· Racheal Bandy

··· Georgia Ann Bandy

·· ClementineBandy (559, 18-1229) (1855 - ?) married John Stevenson in Hamilton County, Tennessee on July 16, 1871.

·· Marion IsaacBandy (1052, 18-1230) (1857 - ? ) married Samantha Adams on June 27, 1875 in Chattooga County Georgia. Possibly also married a Vose in 1890 in Winfield, Kansas. He had one son who, based on listed birthdate, was born to Samantha.

··· NormanBandy (1052, 19-1990) (1885 - ? )

As noted, Dicie's possible relative, Jesse, married Mourning Bandy in 1837. William is thought to have died before 1870. In 1870 in Hamilton County, Tennessee, Dicie is listed as age 53 (p. 651). In the 1870 census for Pontotoc County, Mississippi, Dicy Horton is listed with Harvey Horton (p. 307). Living with the couple are two children, Martha and Jeff, probably the children of Harvey and his first wife. Also living in the household is Lee Bandy a 17 year old Black female who may be a former slave. This Dicy lists her age as 36 and her birthplace as South Carolina. It is not definite how these two Dicies fit together, but the younger Dicie could be an older daughter of William and Dicie.

·A second possible son is Greenbury Bandy (17-1634)(1808-after 1870) who is listed in Rutherford County, North Carolina in 1840 after David and William had moved to Tennessee (p. 322). In 1850, a Greenbury Bandy is listed in White County, Tennessee married to Sarah (age 38) (White County, Tennessee, p. 87) with six children. The birthplace listed for Sarah and all six children is North Carolina. In 1850, Greenbury's birthplace is listed as South Carolina, but in the census of 1870, Greenbury lists his birthplace as North Carolina (White County, Tennessee, p. 403). Their children, listed below are based on the two censuses and on information provided by descendant Claire Bandy. The information was compiled by Howard L. Baine, Jr. If the information relating to the William (discussed in the previous paragraph) and Greenbury is correct they could be twins. It is noted that William and Greenbury moved from Rutherford County, North Carolina to adjacent Tennessee counties. As noted, Greenbury alternatively reported his birthplace as North Carolina and South Carolina, suggesting that the family spent time in both states. That is another indication of a tie between the western North Carolina group and the South Carolina group. Descendant Howard Baine reports that Greenbury was born in Camden, Chester County, South Carolina, and that he is the son of William and Ann Deaderick Bandy. Howard also reports Sarah’s maiden name as Nelson. His account lists William’s birth date as 1774. The above listed William was born after 1800. If he is the son of a William Bandy, then it likely is the William Bandy who listed in the 1800 Chester County, South Carolina census. See chapter 4.

·· ThomasEdgar Bandy (December 11, 1834 - November 10, 1895) married Margaret Olive Milligan (Millican) (September 10, 1840 - May 19, 1915 ) on August 8, 1858 in White County.[i] Margaret Milligan, widow of Thomas E. Bandy and who was born in North Carolina and died in Cumberland County, Tennessee, applied for Confederate Widow’s benefits. She married Thomas in White County, Tennessee.[ii] Based on the 1870 White County, Tennessee census (p. 401) and information provided by Claire Bandy their 17 children include:

·A third possible son is Absolem Bandy (598, 17-1075) (around 1798-1891) who married Sarah Walker (598, 17-1076) (around 1803-1893) in Rutherford County, North Carolina sometime in the early 1830's. By 1850, Absolem and Sarah had moved to McMinn County, Tennessee (p. 273). As their children, ages 4 through 15, all listed North Carolina as their birthplaces the move must have been after 1846 and somewhat independent of the moves by the others. Absolem, Sarah, and their children remained in McMinn through 1860 where they are listed in the census (p. 284). A 12 year Cyntha is listed in the household in 1860 along with 40 year old Polly, probably the same Polly who lived with David in 1850. By 1870, Absolem H. and Sarah were listed in the Phelps County, Missouri census (p. 638). Sons Francis and Martin are listed on the same page of the census. Both Martin and Francis have one year old children listed as having been born in Tennessee which indicates that the families moved to Missouri in about 1869. Absolem and Sarah were buried in Luckey Chapel Cemetery in Phelps County. The cemetery derives its name from the Luckey Chapel founded by Rev. John H. Luckey.[v]The children are:

·· MartinBandy 18-1507) (born 1835) In the 1870 Phelps County, Missouri census (p. 638) Martin is listed with wife Lithe (born in 1831) and two sons:

··· FrancisBandy (1866- ?).

··· JohnBandy (1869 - ? ).

··Narcissa Bandy (598, 18-1508) (1838 - ? ).

·· Francis M. Bandy(598, 18-1509) (1843- ? ) In the 1870 Phelps County, Missouri census (p. 638), Francis is listed with wife Catherine (born in 1849) and daughter:

··· EllenBandy (1869 - ? ).

·· Cynthia Minerva Bandy (598, 18-1510) (1846 - ?).

·Also living in Cherokee County, North Carolina in 1850 and listed on the same page of the census record as David is Jonathan Bandy (599, 17-1077) (1823 - after 1860), wife Ruth (599, 17-1078) (1824-after 1860), and three children all of whom list North Carolina as their birthplace (p. 69). They are listed in McMinn County, Tennessee in 1860 where the birthplace for the children is listed as Tennessee (p. 338). No sons under age 10 were listed in David's household in 1830. This suggests an error in the record, that Jonathan lived elsewhere, or that Jonathan is not David's son. The male between the ages of 15 and 20 listed in David's household in the 1840 census could, however, be Jonathan. It is noted that Ester who lived with David in Cherokee County, NC in 1850 lived with Jonathan in McMinn County, Tennessee in 1860. These fact suggest a family relationship. The children are:

·· Thomas J. Bandy (599, 18-1511) (1843 - ?). Probably the Thomas J. Bandy who married Elizabeth Yarnell in McMinn County, Tennessee on October 1, 1864.

·· Amanda A. Bandy (599, 18-1512)(1848 - ?).

·· Charity Jane Bandy (599, 18-1513)(1850 - ? ).

·· Dugger F. Bandy (599, 18-1514) (1857 - ? ) a boy.
