I am impressed by this level of research. I have only scraped the banister family, but I have a question. I believe that my great great grandmother was Levisa Banister b 1772 in Virginia, and that she was a daughter of a William Banister who was in the 1790 SC census. Although he is dead by 1800 I assume that his widow is the one Banister in the Pendleton SC census. My ancestor was Joseph Nation and his son Nathan married in SC about 1795 to Levisa. The named a son Banister Nation b 1805 died MO 1866. His (Banister's) brother named my ancestor William Banister Nation in 1857. His sister Sarah Boren named her son Banister Boren in 1818. That's a lot of Banister's and indicates to me some sort of high regard for this William Banister. Concurrently, I have found that Nathan's cousin James Nation b 1794 d 1871 Gonzales Tx had a daughter named Corilla who married Richard Banister a son of Rev John Monro Banister d 1907 in Huntsville Alabama. Corilla Banister d in 1927 and is buried in Gonzales TX. Her husband had to have died about 1900. They had one daughter b 1876 Louise who maried Truman H Aldrich. Truman's father was a congressman in Alabama and politically connected. When his son wished to divorce Louise they fabricated a story about her incapacity and put her in an asylum. They spread that she died in the teens but she lived until about 1963. Vivian Hull says she saw some proof that Levisa was married to Nathan in the Warren County KY archives. I would like your opinion.
