I believe your Va. Mebanes orginally came from Orange County, NC. Aexander Allen Mebane, b. Sep 1806 in NC was son of James Mebane, b. Sep 1774 in Orange Co, NC. This Alexander was a prominent Presbyterian minister in Richmond, Va. He had a son William Kinchen Mebane, b. 1834, d. 1878. His son was Charles Sublett Mebane, b.1860 in Va., d.1913. His son was Daniel Bower Mebane, b.1892, d.1957. His son was Alexander D.Mebane, b. 1923 in New York. He was Treasurer of the New Republic Bank of NYC. Hope this helps.
