Miss Thys has a brief obituary of an Elijah Banks, probably of some relationship to Morgan Banks, Notary Public.  Elijah, a pioneer to McPherson Co., in 1871 d. 10 miles south of Gypsum, the farm on which he resided since 1871. (sic)    Elijah was 79 years of age when he died.  He was a brother of Capt. Banks, Mayor of Salina, Kansas in 1887.  (Unfortunately this obituary like many old obituaries was not clipped to include the date and name of the newspaper in which it appeared, neither was this essential information added; therefore, it is offered only as a small clue to time and place for the Banks brothers and not as evidence.)
