Thank you for the additional information. Sorry about mixing up the names -- I should never type after 8 p.m. Temperance Awtrey and William Bankston had a son James J. Bankston, born 11 March 1815, but evidently he never married. He is found as a single man living with his parents in 1850 Walton County, GA and in 1860 Clark County, Arkansas where that family removed to. I have not found him after 1860 and suspect he may have died during the Civil War. I have no indication that any of this family ever went to the Gulf Coast communities where you've found your Bankstons. I have both Awtrey and Bankston lines and have been working on untangling them. There are a number of Bankston lines in Louisiana and Mississippi and if you can find your family in 1870 and 1860 censuses, perhaps I or others can pinpoint the lineage for you. The county/parish/state is critical to untangling these families as like in most families there are many names that are the same or almost the same in several generations.
