BANDY-ELDRINGHOFF from White Church, West Plains Mo. or Deer Trail, Co.
Looking for my Mother's side of our family! We know very little about our mother's family. So here is what We have to share, Our mother was born in Woodward, Oklahoma, 27 OCT. 1942 and raised in the little town of Gage, Ok. she died - 13 Dec 2007 Concordia, Ks. She was the daughter of Coetta E. Christian & Living BANDY. We have been looking for information on our grandfather's family for about a year now and we keep comming back to the same place. We know our Great- Grandparents names and the names of their children, we keep hitting a wall with census and marriage records. So if there is any one out there with any or even a little help, we would be more than glad to share what little information we have. So here is the bit's we have-
Herman C. (Charles ?) BANDY- 1885 ? Married: Lucinda Eldringhoff to this union they were blessed with 7- Children, not sure of the order, most of our information comes from an obituary we found on line of one of their children, due to the fact that we had no clue that our Grandfather even had any siblings.
1. Chole Mary Bandy-1906 ?
2.Stella Cecelia Bandy
3.Helen Marie Bandy Barnes 1923- obit we found, she married the step-son(Francis C. Barnes) of our Grandfather's first wife, Ruby Melissa Ballard Barnes Bandy 1901-1943.
5. Guy Bandy, Servied in WWII
7. Living Bandy, Served in WWII- navy.
We have found some records of them living in Gage, OK., Deer Trail, Co., White Church & West Plains, Mo. Coetta E. Christian was our Grandfathers second wife. He married for a third time in 1963 to Living Enslin Pearson Bandy.
