ARNOLD, BANNING, CAUDLE, EMMONS posted by Betty Kehl Richardson on Tuesday, May 1, 2001

Looking at the Caudle, Arnold, and Banning families of Macoupin and Greene Counties and their relationships. I had a quiery earlier about Lemuel Banning who married Mary Angeline Caudle dau of Isham and Sarah Arnold Caudle (m. jan 22, 1843 in Greene Co., Ill) There are several Arnolds, Caudles, and Lemuel Banning and Benoi Banning buried in Land's Cemetery. I recently heard from Bill of St. Louis whose direct ancestor was a brother of Lemuel Banning. He had that Lemuel and Mary Angeline Caudle Banning had two daughters both who appeared to have Arnold as a last name..I suspect it was a middle name since that was their mother's maiden name. Bill and I are interested in hearing from anyone from this Banning, Arnold, Caudle Connection. I am grateful to Julie Claussen (my distant cousin on both Mother and Dad's sides from ancestors of Macoupin,Greene, and Morgan)for posting her listing of those buried at Land's Cemetery although it is not complete...probably because from time to time, stones have been stolen or distroyed. I have an incomplete listings of a few Caudle and Emmons burials there from stones I saw in Land's Cemetery in the 60's.
