Hi Bohannon Cuzzies
I have just rejoined the list after being absent for quite some time.
We moved from FL to Guam and it sure took a long time for the
computer to get to this tiny island.
Anyway, here is my Bohanan line and I would greatly appreciate and
helpful hints or leads as to who might be the father of my William Bohanan.
Descendants of William BOHANAN Sr. - 21 Mar 1998
1. William BOHANAN Sr.1 was born about 1780. He died after 1832. He served
in the military War of 1812 in Mississippi.2 William Bohannon is listed as
fighting in McKee's Command, as pack horse master with the CHoctaw Indians.
William Bohanan Sr. came from the Mosholetubbe District in Mississippi,
16 Dec. 1832. He came to Agency Depot, Indian Territory. He had no roll
number. It is not know who his wife was, but she must have been 4/4
Choctaw. It is not known when he was born or when he died, or where he is
buried. William Bohanan Sr. was 4/4 white.
One source says William Bohanan Sr. was a Presbyterian Minister in MS, who
married the daughter of a Choctaw Chief. It is also said that he had at least
one other daughter who married a Pusley.
