Birth: 1840

Death: May 9, 1894

The son of Abraham & Belinda (Stonesifer) Bankard, he apparently never married. In 1860, he was a laborer living in Littlestown, Adams County, and stood 5' 9" tall.

A Civil War veteran, he enlisted January 3, 1862, in the field at Camp Dix, Baltimore, Maryland, and mustered into federal service there the same day. Captured at the battle of Carter's Woods June 15, 1863, and incarcerated on Belle Isle in Richmond. Following his parole, he deserted from Camp Parole, Annapolis, Maryland, but came back after 10 days and returned to duty with the regiment on October 5, 1863. Wounded at the battle of Monocacy July 9, 1864, whan a ball entered just below the right knee and exited through the calf. Returned to active duty September 20, 1864, and was honorably discharged January 3, 1865.

After the war, he lived in both Columbia, Lancaster County, and York. In 1889, he entered the Soldiers' Home in Hampton, Virginia, and died unexpectedly of a lung hemorrhage. His last name was also spelled "Bankert," but he insisted that "Bankard" was correct.
