Henry and Martha Bankston moved from Georgia to the Miller/ Lafayette County area of Arkansas before the Civil War. They are buried in the Macedonia Cemetery in Bright Star, AR along with their son, T.Perry Bankston and his wife Evie and their son, O'Neal Bankston. My ggggreatgrandmother was Priscilla Bankston Mathis, daughter of Laurence Bankston of Wilkes County, GA. Her daughter was Isabella Mathis Allen, wife of J.C.Allen. This couple is also buried in Macedonia Cemetery.They also came to Lafayette County before the War around 1850. Isabella was born in Wilkes County, married in Coweta County and her daughter Frances Permelia Allen was born in Cobb County where Priscilla and William Mathis were living before 1850. All these of course are Georgia counties. Does anyone know of a kinship that existed between the Bankston and Allen families in Lafayette County AR?Where did Henry and Martha live in Georgia before they moved to Arkansas? Who were their parents? Were Isabella and Henry cousins? Laurence Bankston was the son of Andrew/Andres Bankston who was born in Pennsylvania. Any information about this Bankston family in Lafayette County AR will be appreciated.
