States: Indiana: Gibson
The 1900 and 1910 census lists a John D. Bankford and wife Mary in Gibson county with 3 sons; Edward, Sylvester and Leo. The IN marriage index says she is Mary Gelhans/Golhans (several different spellings, who married John Bankfort/Bankfert in Vanderburg county on 14 Nov 1882.
In 1880 John Bankford is listed as the stepson of John and B. Abblug?? They are living next door to the Henry Meyer family. I found a marriage in the IN marriage index of a Bardina Meyers who married a Henry Bangford 04 Oct 1853 in Gibson county. This could well be John Bankford's parents, and the connection to the Meyer family.
