Birth: Jun. 11, 1754
Guilford County
North Carolina, USA
Death: Sep. 15, 1827
Washington Parish
Louisiana, USA

Married Henrietta Coates, daughter of Leslie and Drusilla Coates, on June 10, 1778, in Georgia. She was born January 8, 1760 in Clarke County, Georgia. They had twelve children, all born in Georgia before the family came to Louisiana. His parents were Jacob M. Bankston, Sr. (b. 1739 in Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania) and Jemima (maiden name unknown). He was a private in the Georgia Troops during the Revolutionary War. Also served in the War of 1812. John's father Jacob was also a patriot in the Revolutionary War. There is some question as to his year of death. Genealogy information has death in 1823, tombstone has 1827. His grave is supposedly one of the oldest if not the oldest in Tangipahoa Parish. The cemetery sign reads 1823. His great-great grandparents, Anders Bengtsson (Bankson), Sr. (47840751) and Gertrude Rambo (47845518), are buried at the Gloria Dei (Old Swedes) Church Burial Ground in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and can be found on findagrave. Their Findagrave numbers are beside their names. Gertrude Rambo's father, Peter Gunnarson Rambo (5679385), is also buried there. There is a link on her site to him.
