Descendants of David Banks, b. abt 1802, Virginia.  Participant 215019 is 5 generations from John Banks.
David moved to Coffee Co., Tennessee and his descendants moved mostly to Oklahoma, Texas and California..

While the participant here has not tested for the R1b category, several persons very close to his marker
values above was found to have L159.2.  So there is little doubt this is the category to which all belong.
There are persons with the surnames of Barber, Beatty and Dooley who have marker values extremely
close to the participant here.  Information about these other men is very hard to find, but the common
ancestor surely lived within the last 500 years and probably more recently than that.  Either the Bankses
here are descended from these other families or vice versa.  The much larger number of men with these
other surnames suggests the Banks family may have been adopted from one of these families.
