John Bandy of Maryland
The only known death of a Bandy in the American Revolution is John who served in Col. Thomas Price's 2nd Maryland Regiment.[i] Where he lived prior to his service is unknown. Perhaps he is Edward Banning’s descendent through his son John. As many as eight other Bandys served in the Revolution in Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, and possibly Georgia.[ii]
