      Clair County, Alabama, 1819-1853, by Mrs. C.P. McGuire, 1952) [There
      is no proof that this is a wife of the same James here. St. Clair Co.
      was adjacent to Blount Co.]
      28 May 1834, James Banks was granted land in Section 23, Twp 10, Range
      4 E, residing in Blount Co., AL. (Old Huntsville Land Office Records

      Banks [Mrs. Leander Walker], WF 21, b. AL, married within the year.
      [Note: the wife's name Frances is consistent with a marriage to
      Frances Hester, but Ann Carlton Banks was supposedly still alive in
      1850]
      The Roster of Revolutionary Soldiers listed either James or his wife
      Ann as dying 1858. James is more likely -- if correct.
