  • Notes 
    • from the web - unproven, though there are many good sources the webmaster has seen that back this up:

      "I am searching the Buchanans who eventually ended up in NC. They started with Duncan Bohannan Jr. b 1675 in Kingston Parish, Gloucester, Va son of Duncan and ____ Dudley, who married Sarah Elliott. They had a son, Duncan III, b 17 jan 1704 who married Susannah May. They had a son, Richard Bohannan who changed to Buchanan b abt 1744 Orange, Va and married Elizabeth. They had a son, Joseph, b abt 1771 Orange, NC and married Martha. (and here is gets dicey with various sources claiming Joseph.) They had a son, Alfred and my line continues from there to my ggrandmother Martha Jane Buchanan who married another Buchanan--Carlton Nell. His father was Thomas Henry Benjamin Buchanan and his father was Henry b 1820 Chatham NC and his father was Benjamin..."

      Owned Land on the Cape Fear River next to Thomas Ragland and Isaac Watts Avent. Some say he was b. in Scotland, though this contradicts evidence given above. Estate Papers in Raleigh, NC show a petition of older children against younger children in Nov 1850 for the land to be divided. The land division gives Samantha Maddox 25 acres on the Cape Fear River, next to her Wesley gets 25 acres, next to him, Louisa W. gets 25 acres, next to her Sion T. gets 40 acres. Hilliard gets 55 acres that are located above Samantha, Wesley and Louisa are beside Sion. Grezza Ann gets 60 acres above Hilliard and Sion. And then in a square piece that juts off of a corner of Grezza Ann's, Mary Ann and Flora Jane each get 33 acres beside each other, and then Elbert and Nancy Cox (wife of Elias) get 33 acres above Mary and Flora. Samantha, Hilliard, Grezza Ann, and Mary Ann's land all touch or border on Tom's Branch. In his will, the above 10 children are named. Hillyard (sic), Mary Ann, Flora Jane, and Louisa are minors in 1848. In the files of 1852, Grezza Ann is now married to Jacob Utley.
