I am researching Peter Banta, born Henry County, Ky about 1810. He migrated to Texas via Ohio and Missouri. His wife was Susan, born in Vermont. In 1850 he is in Milam County, Texas, with his wife and children.
However, I cannot ascertain who his parents were. A hint might be that his daughter was Miranda. It might be that he had a second marriage and the daughter from that marriage was also Miranda.

I wonder if someone could help me.
