David: I noticed that in one of your early messages, about a year ago, you noted that James McDill arrived in Chillicothe in 1800. One of my ancestors, David Banker (or Bankard)Came from Frederick County Maryland to Chillicothe, also in 1800. The Banker's (also Bankert, Bankard, Bankart, etc.) had a lot of connections to Pennsylvania families. He married a Mary Ann McDill in Chillicothe in 1810. Do you know who her parents might be? There's also a Baily connection -- When David and Mary Ann moved west to Butler County, OH, he obtained land that had been owned by Elijah Mills, who was also from the PA area; Elijah's wife was Mary Baily (or Bayley).
