over 1,100 families

An Unknown Bandy probably married to AVY founded this line, originally in VA and NC.  Their son George married Christine SLINKARD in Botetourt Cty, VA

The lines we have shown here are some of the largest lines originated before 1800 which we have not been able to link to any other yet. Only Y-dna testing will help us show if they are truly separate families or members of the main line.  There are many other lines and small groups in the world which are still a puzzle to us. Time does not permit listing them all here at the moment.
