About John C. Buchanan

According to Historical Southern Families, V. 21 (p. 9), John was b. in Ireland abt. 1724, came to PA and served in the Rev. War, and lived in Lower Chanceford twp., York Co., PA. His second marriage is probably the one performed on 10-3-1765 by Rev. Cuthbertson, a Reformed Presbyterian minister in Adams, York and Lancaster counties, PA. In this record, her name is listed as "Jean," at least by the transcriber of the record [York Co., PA Church Records of the 18th Century, vol. 3, p. 278. (SGS PA/67-11C)] This minister baptized most of the children of George, William, and John Buchanan. His Rev. War pension application gives his date and place of birth, and says that he served as a "3rd Class" (probably ensign) in the 6th Battalion of York Co. Militia, and names his (second) wife as Jane Rowan. They are both buried in Airville cemetery, York Co. PA. He left a will dated 3 Sept. 1803, and probated 8 Feb. 1810, which names sons James, Thomas, William, Ebenezer, and daughters Mary, Marthieu, and Margaret. Of these, James and Margaret were apparently by his first wife Jane Russell, and the rest were by Jane Rowan. See Ted Newton's book for some of this. Sources: "The Way of the Leaf," by Ted R.
