John Bandy of Virginia, Kentucky, Indiana, and Iowa

This John Bandy (272, 16-616) (June, 4, 1794 - May 5, 1873) was born in Virginia suggesting that he may be related to the other Bandys from Virginia.[i] John's Virginia birthplace indicates that he could be a descendent of Kendall. It is noted that Kendall had a son under age 10 listed in his household in the 1800 Accomack County, Virginia census. Records pertaining to this John sometimes spell his last name Banda and other times as Bundy. However, this John married Mary VanNyes (272, 16-617) (November 11, 1799 - June 2, 1881) on April 14, 1821, probably in Kentucky. That family's records indicate the spelling as Bandy. [ii] Nevertheless, it is not entirely clear what the early spelling of the name may have been raising the possibility that he could be related to the Bannings discussed in the previous chapter. Some references to the name list it as Bundy and others as Banda. According to a family story, John and a younger brother were orphaned. John and his brother lived with an uncle, and when the uncle died, John was placed into an apprenticeship while his younger brother was placed with a family named Brady or Bradley. John ran away from his master and enlisted in the army at Madison, Indiana in 1812 and served two enlistments. He returned to look for his brother, but found that the family had moved west, perhaps to Texas.[iii]

Apparently, John is listed twice in the 1830 Indiana census, once in Switzerland County and also in Tippecanoe County suggesting that the family moved at about the time of the census (pp. 32 and 121 respectively). The information in the census is generally consistent for the two listings and the subsequently reported birthplaces for children include both counties. In 1840, the family is listed in Des Moines, Iowa, and in 1850, the family is listed in Scott County, Iowa (pp. 153 and 390 respectively). By 1860, they are back in Des Moines, and they are still listed there in 1870 (pp. 814 and 586 respectively).

It is not clear whether the family is related to Keren, Thomas, either William orGeorge or other Indiana Bandys discussed below. It is noted, however, that the move from Switzerland County to Tippecanoe County would have take John through the part of the state where the others lived at a time when they all were there. In the 1870 census, Drinkard Bandy, age 68, and Martha, age 40, are listed in Wayne County, Iowa (p. 390). Drinkard, William, and George are all sons of George, grandson of 1795 Richard. Richard, age 42, and Mary E., age 36, and their children are listed in Fremont County, Iowa. This Richard, apparently, is the son of Samuel, grandson of Richard, great grandson of Thomas, and great great grandson of 1795 Richard.

John's first wife was Rachel Bergen.[iv] There is no record of their having children. John and Mary's 12 children include.[v]
