Anyway... my connection to the Bankstons starts with Floyd Eldrige Bankston, who married a cousin of mine, Mary Bell Brewer sometime in the 1940's.These folks and their descendants live(d) in Texas. They had at least 14 children that I know of (Yikes!!).Our Brewer line is from Thomas and Lucretia Brewer through their son Briant.
I don't know if we have a connection here, but I thought I'd share what I know.Please let me know if any of this sounds familiar.
