This might have been better sent to the Torrens list, so I'm cc'ing it
However it is highly likely that many of the Bann families can=me from the
same area of Scotland, south of Glasgow. It's pretty certain my own line

I never did put up the tree of the Larkhall line. Have now!
A quick search revealed a couple of other sites that connect with this
There are probably members of the Torrens list who would appreciate
gravestone information: suggest you contact me off list.
