  • Note:
    [Researcher's note: From what my father [William Arthur Buchanan] told me, and other's I discussed it with, they don't think William served in the military, but was called "Major" as a sign of respect, much like others might be "Colonel". Since all the other researchers I've worked with use it with his name, I have included it also.]

    Info from Wadene Bennett's descendancy chart, Ethel Sullins e-mailed to me, and Harold Miller. Also info given to Arthur Buchanan
    Info from Frances Nichols, Colville, Wa.
    Info from Florence Crawford Miller, Ava, Mo.
    Info from Lucille Parks, Mountain Home, Ark.
    Info to me from Wadene Bennett, Tulsa, Ok.
    Deed information from Douglas Co., Mo. [Courthouse burned in early 1880's, any info of time before that was voluntarily brought in by residents to be recorded again.]
    LDS Ancestral File: Researcher on William Anderson, born abt. 1818
    Spouse: Elizabeth Submitted by Dianne Knowlden Moore, 1381 22nd Street, Odgen, Ut. 84401 Microfilm 1394333
    Diane Hanson, Independence, Mo. She has family record copied from William Robert's Bible, listing birth dates for him and children from first marriage with Elizabeth. It gives Elizabeth 's last name as Gordon, and the dates I've used are those from the Bible.
    Family history prepared by daughter-in-law of Robert Anderson, Glessner Anderson. This gives birth of William as September 18, 1818.

    His actual grave-site is un-marked, so Dad put a marker-tombstone in the cemetery there for him, Susan, and 3 of the kids-Cora, Henry, & Pearl, because there is no dates for them.
    He is in the 1840 census for Indiana Co, Green Twp, PA, on pg. 58
