Yes, you are referring to James O'Bannon (b.Madison County, MO 1825, d.Madison County, MO 1878). He married Elinor Amerlia Anthony (1836-1877) in Madison County, MO Sep. 8, 1852. They are buried in the O'Bannon Cemetery 2 miles west of Fredericktown, MO on Hiway 72. James was son of Elijah O'Bannon and Mary Chilton.

James and Elinor had 13 children from Samuel to Joseph. Virginia Lee (Jennie) (1864-1942) was the 6th child. She married Edward Lee Lewis (1864-1940) on Feb. 27, 1899. Virginia and Ed had 14 children of which Nellie Christina (1894-1879) was the 4th Nellie married on Nov. 24, 1920 Claude H. Anderson (1891-1941). They had 2 children:
Claude H. (Clyde) Anderson (1922- ) and Colleen (1923- ) married to James K. Maupin.

James O'Bannon was brother to my great grandfather William Isom O'Bannon. They all lived around Fredericktown (Madison County) MO and southern St. Francois County, MO adjacent to the north of Madison County. This family is large, and I have lots of data. I knew some of James' youngest children who were still living until very recently.

What is it you wanted to know about Colleen? I don't know her personally.

Surnames: Rhoads, Obannon, Obanion, Johnson
I am also researching Obannon or Obanion from Missouri. Looking in particular for o,Bannons who most resently lived in Pettis Co., (Sedalia Area)

I have heard that the spelling had changed some where in the past.
Looking for information on Benjamen O'Bannon who was born in 1841--origin unknown.

His son Charles Alvin O'Bannon--who died in 1939 who was married to a Sarah Alice Johnson

Charles daughter Mattie Leora born in 1880 who married a Mahlon Elmer Rhoads.

Any connections

Surnames: O'Bannon, Paullus
My information has a Lucinda (Lousenda) O’Bannon from Madison Country, born 1833 or 1837 marrying James C. Paullus of Coldwater in Wayne County. James C. Paullus was born 5 Jun 1831 and died in 1927. Lucinda was the daughter of George Washington O’Bannon; born 1815; died about 1878 and Marguerite Wilson. G.W. O’Bannon was the son of an Elijah O’Bannon from Kentucky; born 1791.

Is there any correlation here and can you provide any additional information? My mother was a third generation Paullus under James C. Paullus. Could Lucinda be buried in the Fredericktown cemetery?

Thank you,
David Geisler

My grandmother's maiden name was Sadie Mae O'bannon. Her father was John Elijah O'bannon and her brother was Frank O'bannon. I believe all were born in Missouri. Sadie Mae married Pearl Bollinger and lived for a time in or around Messler MO where my father, A.J. Bollinger was born in 1924.
A.J. had two brothers Harold (lives in Cape Girardeau) and Billy of Scot City. Sadie Mae was a large percent American Indian, she looked it and there are a couple of pictures showing an O'bannon with his Indian wife and seven or eight kids. I have never pursued my geneology but I thought that this might help someone.

Surnames: O'Bannon, DeJournet, Hill, Bollinger
I have John Elijah O'Bannon (1865-1937) of Madison Co, MO born to Francis (Frank) O'Bannon (1823-1911) and Emma Jane Hill (1838-1880).
I have John Elijah m. to Mary Frances Menley (1877-1961) To this union I have 8 kids--5 girls, 3 boys. One of the girls is indeed Sadie May (b.1901, d. when?) and one of the boys is indeed John Frank (1915-1975). I do not have wife and kids for John Frank. I have names and descendants for the others of Sadie's and John's siblings.
As for for Sadie Mae, all I have as her husband is a guy named DeJournet (first name unknown). I have no Bollingers for this line. Perhaps Bollinger was a later husband of Sadie Mae?
I do have Bollingers married to O'Bannons in collateral lines--they probably came from Bollinger County, MO--adjacent to Madison County where the O'Bannons lived.
Although Cherokees intermarried into O'Bannons in other collateral lines, I cannot guess who of the above line would have contributed Indian genes. Perhaps Emma Hill? Certainly not any of the O'Bannons--Elijah was four generations removed from Ireland and the O'Bannon males married women of mainly English surnames.
If you will contact me at we can discuss these differences more readily.
Good hearing from you. Would certainly like to add more to this line. (John Elijah's father Francis was brother to my great grandfather William Isom, and I have a photo of Francis in old age).

Very definitely there is a connection between the Pettis County, MO O'Bannons, the Prince William County, VA O'Bannons, and my Missouri O'Bannons--we're all descended from Bryant O'Bannon who came from Ireland to Westmoreland County, VA and eventually settled in Fauquier County, VA just shortly after Fauquier was spun off from Prince William County.
Bryant had three sons: John, William and Samuel. Some of the Pettis County O'Bannons descend from William, others from John. My own line (the Madison County, MO O'Bannons) descend from John.
To make a start in connecting us up, I suggest you get in touch with me directly at my e-mail address. There are thousands of names involved, too much to post as a reply to in the O'Bannon board.
Look forward to hearing from you.

In another posting, you said you had the quilt that had been passed down in your family, that had the name of Brian O'Bannon1 (the immigrant) on it and it included the name of his wife, which was Sarah Isham. Is there any way I could get a picture of the quilt? I will be glad to pay whatever costs there would be! Do you know who made the quilt, and when?

You also said that a cousin was sending you, by snail mail, papers of the ship manifest that had Bryan O'Bannon's name on it, which would be the ship on which he immigrated from Ireland. Did you ever receive the papers? Could you send me a copy of the papers?
