The Orval Lee Bane Family welcomes all visitors to our site. We became interested in creating a "personal web site" while doing genealogy work. This site will have information about our family with some pictures. We will have news about other Bane(Bain) relatives or friends as it becomes available!
We are seeking evidence that any Bane(Bain)families lived in Alabama in the 1800-30s. We are especially looking for information about John Bane, born June 1, 1825 in Franklin County, Alabama and died Dec 19, 1916. At the age of 14 he left home and went to Tishomingo County, Mississippi where he later married Sarah Kinningham on Sept 14, 1848. He could have had a sister, Amanda, brothers named James, David and Hiram. David could have gone north and the others toward Texas. John's family came from N.Carolina and Scotland. We would appreciate any information what-so-ever about his actual birth place, parents, brothers, sisters or any other information about any Bane(Bain) family in Franklin County.We have information about his family from 1825 until the present time. We will freely share our information.
Our search has recently located Amanda, James and Hiram in the Nacogdoches area in east Texas. They migrated from Blount county, Alabama. Amanda married a Buchanan and the boys went to Texas with them.
We have information about Bain's in Tennessee, Arkansas & Oklahoma.
We are also seeking information on Keiningham, Kinningham,(from Virginia & Tennessee), Du Boise, Halleman, Hester, Erickson, Dieger & Spain.
