  • ID: I3519
  • Name: George BUCHANAN
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: ABT 1721 in Romelt,Donegal,Ireland
  • Death: 1815 in Madison,Jefferson Co.,Indiana
  • Burial: Buchanan Cem.,Ripley Co.,Indiana
  • Note:
    According to a Ripley Co., Indiana, genealogist, George was a soldier in the
    American Revolutionary War. And, according to the DAR, there is an established
    patriot from Pennsylvania who died in 1818 in Indiana; his wife was Esther
    CAMPBELL, and his children were Wilson, Mary, John, David, and William.
  • Note: Grave is marked with a government marker: 4 PA REG REV WAR 1815
  • Note:
    Immigrated from Ireland to York County, Pennsylvania, in about 1774. Remarried
    in Pennsylvania. Moved from Fayette County, Pennsylvania, to Kentucky in 1790.
    Listed on tax list in Woodford County, Kentucky in 1792, 1793, 1794, and 1795.
    Moved to Jefferson County, Indiana by 1813.
  • Note:
    The "Buchanan Station" blockhouse was built on his property in 1812 or 1813 as
    protection from Indians who were still in the southern Indiana area. "Buchanan
    Station" was constructed in Brown Township, Ripley Co., Indiana, in 1812 or
    1813.
  • Note:
    NOTE: Some family genealogists claim that this man's father was William
    Alexander Buchanan, born about 1698 in County Donegal, Ireland. HOWEVER, no
    proof has been offered to support the claims. It is highly speculative that
    George was the son of William b. 1698 in County Donegal. Consequently, this
    database will not link George to any parent.

    This database is the result of over 25 years of my research. I am now an attorney; in the past, I spent two years as a librarian at an LDS Family History Center. For direct-line ancestors, and for all descendants of any of my great-great grandparents, all information has been proven by me. However, as with most genealogists, I have included some information in this database that is not the result of my own research, but rather the result of someone else claiming that the information is correct.
