Still a long search to connect these women and find proof of parents and if they are sisters. Two married into Bandy family. If you check 1860 census Williamson Co. #1190 John Kirk with wife Mary (Polly) #1191 Laura Bandy widow of Richard S. Bandy #1192 Wesley Bandy (John Wesley) with wife Cynthia.
All of these women...Polly; Laura or Leah; Cynthia all born in Kentucky and maiden names are Elliot. I found marriage of Richard S. Bandy to Leah (lear in record) in Franklin Co. Illinois in 1839 a county near Williamson.
Any information, no matter how small-appreciated. Thanks Susan firstname.lastname@example.org
