I found George Y. Banks on the 1930 census, living in Columbus, Muscogee county, Georgia. What's unusual about that you say? Well, there are a couple things. First, George Y. Banks died in 1910. And yes, this is the right person because the children match up. Second, George Y. Banks is listed as a 54 year old Female born in Kentucky.
Yes, this should have been entered more correctly as Katherine Banks. She was born Katherine Reed Bowman, daughter of Henry Clay Bowman and Elizabeth Reed. He/She isn't even entered as Mrs. George Y. Banks. No wonder I had so much trouble finding her!
