George and Christina

George Bandy (192, 16-373) (1750 - Jun 1830) son of Avy (75, 14-38), is the best known Bandy of North Carolina. George (·) and wife Christiana Slinkard (192, 16-374) (? - June 1830) had 12 children.[i]Their children (··), grandchildren (···), and great-grandchildren (····) are listed below. Great-great-grandchildren (·····) are included if the family name if Bandy.

· GeorgeBandy was born in Virginia and reported to have moved to North Carolina during the American Revolution. Much is written about him by his descendent Allen Bandy, Sr.[ii] Although Allen Bandy lists George as descended from 1795 Richard in The History of the Bandy Family, he reports, in correspondence with this writer, that he now concludes that George is Avy’s son. This is based on an analysis of records that show that there were two Georges, one who was born in Virginia and moved to Kentucky and a second who was born in Virginia and moved to North Carolina. Based on real estate transaction, tax records and other information, Burt and Jane Eubank in Bandy Gallimaufry do an excellent job of supporting a conclusion that the George who moved to North Carolina is Avy’s son. George is listed as indebted to the state in Burke County, North Carolina in 1889 suggesting that he first moved there.[iii] He is listed in Lincoln County in 1790, 1800, and 1810. Part of Lincoln County became Catawba County. George’s presence in Burke County does suggest a relationship between he and other Bandys who are found there including John, David, and Jesse.
