Hi! I'm looking for information on Lee (Leo on 1880 Census) Constantine O'BANNON (spelled O'BANION on another census).Specific information I was looking for was where he was in 1900.

Information I know:
He was born 14 Nov 1866 in West Virginia (probably Jefferson County) and died 26 Aug 1944 in Charlestown, WV. He was never married and according to my grandfather (now deceased) Lee was my great-great-grandmother's ( Ida C. PAINTER ALLEN ) live-in lover for many years. In 1900, Ida was living with her husband & 2 sons in Maryland (Washington County). Before that, the ALLEN family had been in Charlestown. Ida's husband, George, died in 1901 and she moved back to Charlestown between then and 1910. By 1910, Lee was living with her, listed as "Boarder" and on a later census, he's listed as "Uncle" to my great-grandfather.

On Lee's death certificate, it lists his father as Alfred O'BANNON (b. in Jefferson County) and his mother is Jane GALLAHER. On the 1880 Census for Alfred O'BANNON, Jane is listed as his daughter, with "Leo" as one of his four grandchildren. (The other O'BANNON children listed were: Henry b. abt 1858, Mollie & Fannie, twins, b. abt 1872)
