John Buchanan1,2

M, #235, b. 3 September 1846, d. 28 November 1887

  • Birth*: 3 September 1846; Brighton Twp., Northumberland Co., Canada West; The 1881 census lists his birthplace as Ontario. His marriage registration in 1870 lists his place of birth as Brighton and his age as 23 years. His death registration in 1887 lists his age as 41 years. If he was born in Brighton it appears that his parents moved to Ameliasburgh soon after. They live in Ameliasburgh in the 1851 census. His tombstone is not very clear. John's inscription supposedly says he was 39 years 2 months and 25 days. It seems more likely that he was 41 years 2 months and 25 days.3,4,5
  • Marriage*: 29 October 1870; Anglican Church Rectory, Murray Twp., Carrying Place, Northumberland Co., Ontario; Marriage Reg'n.#011427: Groom: John Buchannon; Age: 23; Res.: Carrying Place; Born: Brighton; Status: bachelor; Occ.: labourer; Parents: Robert Buchannon & Mary A. buchannon; Bride: Elizabeth Stuart; Age: 22; Res.: Carrying Place, Amelisburgh; Born: Ireland; Status: spinster; Parents: William Stuart & Mary Stuart; Witnesses: Wm. J. Stuart & Benjamin Stuart, Carrying Place, Ameliasburgh; Date: Oct 29 1870; Place: at the Rectory, Carrying Place; Religion: Church of England; Married by: E. M. M. Baker; By License (MS932, Reel 12, #011427, Ontario Archives)
    Note: (per Bill Buchanan) John's name is spelled Buchannon, his parents are listed as Robert and Mary A. and his age is 23 years. The witnesses are Wm J Stuart and Benjamin Stuart. The official was E.H.M. Baker. The marriage was registered along with other marriages performed by Rev. Baker in 1873, 72, 71, and 70 in 1873. (M.S.932, Reel 12, Prince Edward Cty, Liber E, Folio 622. The marriage was not registered until 1873 and the number is 011427.); Principal=Elizabeth Stuart6
  • Death*: 28 November 1887; Conc 4 Lot 31, Brighton Twp., Hilton, Northumberland Co., Ontario; Death Reg'n: John Buchanan; Died: Nov 28, 1887; Age, 41; Occupation: farmer; Born: Prince Edward Co.; Cause: consumption, 1 year; Dr: Dr. Dean; Informant: Mrs. John Buchanan, Brighton Twp.; Reg'd: Dec 27, 1887; C. of E.; Reg'r: A. A. Becker
    At the time of his death John had been working on the Murray Canal. He died at home of consumption, which was the term used to describe tuberculosis. His death is registered as Nov 28 1887. It is registered twice -once in Murray Tsp; Reg # 011731-87 and once in Brighton Tsp; reg # 011969-87. The tombstone appears to say Nov 10 18__. His age on the death certificate is listed as 41 years. His place of birth on the Murray Twp. record is listed as Ireland but the Brighton Twp. record shows Prince Edward Co., which seems more correct.7,8
  • Burial*: 29 November 1887; Carrying Place Cemetery, Murray Twp, Carrying Place, Northumberland Co., Ontario; Memorial: (See Exhibit) BUCHANAN; John; 1846 - 1887; His wife; Elizabeth Stuart; 1847 - 1928; Their Son; David Lougheed; 1884 - 1886 (Carrying Place Cemetery, Carrying Place, Dec. 27, 2005, new stone erected by Rev. Charles Buchanan)
    Cemetery Transcription: John Buchanan; Died Nov 28, 1887; Age 39y 2m 25d; David L.; Died Sept 12 1886; Age 1y 8m 25d (Carrying Place Cemetery, Ontario Archives)
    Note: John and his infant son David Lougheed Buchanan are on an old white stone that stands a few feet east of the two obelisk stones of the Carrying Place Buchanan's. It is very worn and hard to make out but the CEMSearch data shown below is discernable if you try hard. It is plainly the right stone in spite of this. Another similar stone to the east shows an Elizabeth but the rest is hard to make out but is not John's wife Elizabeth. (The above was confirmed by Dan Buchanan in July 2000.)
    CEMSearch: Name: John Buchanan; Born: - ; Died: 1887-11-28; Age: 39y 2m 25d; Notes: H/O (not shown) & F/O David L. Buchanan ( - 1886); Buried: The Carrying Place Cemetery, located in the county of Northumberland in Murray Twonship on Conc C Lot 9; There is 1 other name on the same stone or plot: David L. Buchanan ( - 1925)
    Note from Bill Buchanan: John is buried in the front section of the old Carrying Place Cemetery. There is a ganite obelisk-shaped tombstone marking the grave. The tombstone is identical to the marker for Thomas, Henry,James T and another John Buchanan, which is right beside John's marker.
    Note: The identical nature of the stones as well as their close proximity suggest that these two Buchanan families - Thomas of Carrying Place and Robert who once lived in Consecon - are closely related. It is thought that Robert and Thomas could have been brothers and that there may have been several other brothers who came to the Prince Edward Co. area around the same time. This needs to be pursued.
    Note: The two obelisk stones are odd in that they contain redundant information. The newer stone to the west shows Thomas Buchanan and his wife Mary Rutledge on one side and their two young sons Henry and James on another side. The older stone to the east is covered with moss and is very hard to read. With the right light, however, the names of Thomas Buchanan on one side and his wife Ruth Rutledge on another can be made out. This information is the same as that found on one side of the other stone. John Buchanan of Brighton Twp. is not on these stones.9,10,11

  • Note: 29 October 1870; Ameliasburgh Twp., Prince Edward Co., Ontario; After his marriage in 1870 they moved to Asphodel Twp. where they were close to Johns parents and Elizabeth's sister (Emily who had married Thomas Wragg). Sometime after 1874 they moved to the Pickle farm (or Valentine Place per Charles Buchanan), a farm near Hilton (north of the Hwy 401 on the Brighton to Campbellford road, Hwy 30) that was owned by his brother-in- law Thomas Wragg of Belleville. He also owned lots in Codrington (Lot 1 and 2, Conc. IX, the King/Ames/Buchanan farm) and Mount Olivet (Lot 33, conc. VIII which William Valleau later bought).
    The 1880 Survey shows that Thomas Wragg owned Lot 31 and 32 in Brighton Township Concession IV. This is east and a bit south of Newcomb's Mills (present day Orland) and almost to the eastern border of the township.
    There are also three lots owned by the Valentine family just east of the Wragg lot.
    The family stayed on this farm until about 1901 when they moved to a 135 acre farm (the Dingman farm) near Warkworth. This is Lot 10, Conc. 10 of Brighton Township, the far north west corner lot just south of Norham.

When the father John died in November 1887 he was buried in Carrying Place. Elizabeth wanted the baby John to rest near his father so the baby's body had to be moved from the cemetery near Hilton to Carrying Place.
    In the spring of 1888, when they tried to dig up the casket, the ground was still very wet and several men had a very difficult time slipping and sliding and splashing in a very grotesque schene before they were finally able to extracted the casket from the mud. This was witnessed by the 17-year-old William who must have been horrified. William often commented on his aversion to wet cemeteries and digging up caskets.

    The farm consisted of 135 acres and they supposedly paid $1700 for the farm. Tom had left home and moved to Winnipeg and Will and Ben worked the farm for 3 or 4 years until Will bought the mill at Norham. He then left leaving Ben to run the farm.11
  • Occupation: 12 December 1896; Conc 10 Lot 10, Brighton Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario; Farmer: William Buchanan and his family started farming their own farm in 1896 south of Norham at Lot 10 Concession 10 Brighton Twp.
    Bill Buchanan: About 1901 the family bought the Dingman farm outside of Norham.The farm consisted of 135 acres and they supposedly paid $1700 for the farm. Tom had left home and moved to Winnipeg and Will and Ben worked the farm for 3 or 4 years until Will bought the mill at Norham. He then left leaving Ben to run the farm.2

  • Occupation: 1905; The Mill, Percy Twp., Norham, Northumberland Co., Ontario; William operated the mill in Norham until 1921 when he sold the mill and moved the family to Colborne.
    Charles Buchanan tells the story of a poor man of the community coming to the front of the mill to ask William for some work. William knew that the man had children to feed and no money. There was no work for him but William silently went into the mill and brought some food and gave it to the man. William Buchanan was known as a decent, successful man in the community.
  • Residence: 1905; The Mill, Percy Twp., Norham, Northumberland Co., Ontario; William bought and moved to the mill in Norham. The mill was located on the south side of the village where the dam held back the waters of Salt Creek.
  • Residence: 12 January 1905; Lot 10 Conc 10, Brighton Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario; Lot 10 Conc 10: Land Registry Records show that the mortgage on this property was discharged.11
  • Residence: 23 October 1910; Lot 10 Conc 10, Brighton Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario; Lot 10 Conc 10: Land Registry Records show that William B. Buchanan and Elizabeth Buchanan (widow) sold their share in the property to Benjamin Buchanan for $2700.11
  • Census: 12 June 1911; Brighton Twp., Codrington, Northumberland Co., Ontario; Age 38 at 1911 Census: see Benjamin Buchanan (brother)3
  • Note: 12 January 1912; Murray Twp., Carrying Place, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "Carrying Place: W. J. Buchanan and sister were the guests of their Aunt, Mrs. Hayes and cousin Jno Buchanan last week." from The Brighton Ensign, Jan 12, 1924, see at The Ontario Archives, Jan 3, 2001
    Analysis: W. J. Buchanan must mean William Busby Buchanan, who has a sister and is the only W. Buchanan alive in this group in 1912. Their Aunt would be the sister of their mother (Elizabeth Stuart), Mary Ann Stuart who was the wife of Henry Hayes and lived in Carrying Place. John Buchanan would be John E. Buchanan, son of Thomas Buchanan, who lived in Carry Place as well. This confirms from another source (besdies Bernice and Charles Buchanan) that Thomas Buchanan and Robert Buchanan likely were brothers - although it does not say whether William Busby Buchanan was FIRST cousin to John Buchanan or not.7

  • Residence*: 22 November 1912; Conc 1 Lot 17, Percy Twp., Norham, Northumberland Co., Ontario; Land Records show that Robert A. Landford & wife sold 45 acres called the Cowie Mill Property for $4,800 to William, Elizabeth and Benjamin Buchanan. It was sold "... with all machinery acc. to deed & all lands overflowed as per deed." There was a mortgage of $1,600 held by John Service. (Instrument 7893) This property appears to have included a mill as early as 1874 when Erastus Blair sold it to George B. Boyce. The name of Robert Cowie is included along the way to give the place it's familiar name, although others owned it at times inlcuding James Pierson, William Burley, John Douglas and, as above, Robert Langford (in 1908). Salt Creek was dammed just south of the Village of Norham and a sizeable pond - Called Cowie's Pond - was formed. There is very little remaining on the site today.11
  • Note: 10 January 1913; Cowie's Mill, Percy Twp., Norham, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "Morganston: John Buchanan has purchased the Norham Mill and is now running it." from The Brighton Ensign, Jan. 10, 1913, seen on microfilm at The Ontario Archives, Nov. 28, 2001
    Note: The name here is wrong since John Buchanan had died long before this. It was his sons Benjamin and William and his widow Elizabeth who purchased Norham Mill or the Cowie Mill as it was also called.7
  • Residence: 23 October 1915; Lot 17 Conc 1, Percy Twp., Norham, Northumberland Co., Ontario; Land Records show that Benjamin Buchanan & Elizabeth Buchanan sold their shares of the Cowie Mill Property to William Buchanan for $5,000.11
  • Residence: 9 January 1921; Conc 1 Lot 17, Percy Twp., Norham, Northumberland Co., Ontario; Land Records show that William Buchanan sold the Cowie Mill Property to Marshall Wilson for $6,000. (Instrument 7364)11
  • Residence: 10 January 1921; Conc 2 Lot 32, Cramahe Twp., Colborne, Northumberland Co., Ontario; William purchased a lot on the west side of Colborne, on the highway going to Cobourg called Toronto Street inside town. The lot was on the west side of the street and inlcuded a house, a barn and ?? acres for market gardening. Lot 32 Concession 2, Cramahe Twp.
  • Note: 10 January 1921; Toronto Road, Cramahe Twp., Colborne, Northumberland Co., Ontario; Bernice Brown told Dan Buchanan that she recalls moving from the mill in Norham to the home in Colborne in 1921. William went ahead with the wagon containing their belongings while Bertha and Bernice rode the regular mail stage through stormy winter weather along the Colborne Gravel. She remembers it being a frightening experience for a 4-year-old girl.
  • Note*: 1929; Sidney Twp., Hastings Co., Ontario; William's mother, Elizabeth (Stuart) Buchanan died in Sidney Twp. at the home of her daughter Stella Adams and was buried in Carrying Place Cemetery near her husband John Buchanan who had died in 1887. (Per Death Reg'n.)12
  • Residence: 1948; Cramahe Twp., Colborne, Northumberland Co., Ontario; William sold the house and moved himself, Bertha and Bertha's mother Martha Goodfellow into the house of a friend, Mrs. ??.
  • Residence: 1950; Brighton Twp., Codrington, Northumberland Co., Ontario; After Bertha and Martha died William moved to Codrington to live with Charles and his family on the farm.

Richmond (Ontario Birth Registration, #024374-1885, ancestry.com) (Even though this Birth Reg'n shows the name as John, he is shown as Lochead in his Death Registration and David L. on the memorial.)2,4,5
  • Death*: 17 September 1886; Conc 4 Lot 31, Brighton Twp., Hilton, Northumberland Co., Ontario; Death Registration #012382 1886: Name: Lochead Buchanan; Died: Sep 17 1886; Place: Brighton Twp.; Age: 1y 8m 25d; Rank: farmer's son; Born: Brighton Twp.; Cause: diarrhea, 1 week; Phys.: Dr. Sanford; Inf: Rev. S. A. Dupreau, Hilton; Reg'd.: Dec 22 1886; Rel: Episc.; Reg'r.: A. A. Becker (MS935, Reel 44, Reg'n. #012382, Ontario Archives)
    Note: David Loughheed was originally buried in the Hilton cemetery. Charles Buchanan thought that he died in the winter of early 1888 and was buried at Hilton because the family could not get to Carrying Place to bury him with his father. He was dug up in the spring of 1888 and intered with his father at Carrying Place.
    2,6,7
  • Burial: 19 September 1886; Brighton Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario; The child David Lougheed Buchanan was buried originally near their home east of Hilton but, after his father, John, died a year later, his mother Elizabeth wanted the child to be buried with the father in the Carrying Place Cemetery. As a result, the child's body was removed to the Carrying Place Cemetery. per Charles Buchanan

    Note: Stone is very unclear; date likely wrong here??
    Note: Infant son David L. Buchanan was buried first near the family home in Brighton Twp., then, after John died Nov 29 1887, he was moved from there to be buried with his father in Carrying Place. This was probably done the next spring since Charles Buchanan recalls his father saying that it was very wet and the move was very unpleasant. (Per Charles Buchanan)6
  • Namesake*: 23 December 1884; Brighton Twp., Hilton, Northumberland Co., Ontario; The name Lougheed apparently comes from Mr. Robert Lougheed who was a prominent doctor in Trenton. Mrs. Lougheed was Mrs. Stuart's sister and was very involved in church and school in the Trenton area. See "Stuart Immigration".
    "They continued their journey to Trenton, as Mrs. Stuart had a sister, Mrs. Robert Lougheed, living there." From "The Stuart Line".
    Note: Mrs. Stuart here is Elizabeth's mother, William Stuart's wife.

Robert Buchanan1,2

M, #245, b. 1817, d. 3 May 1871

  • Birth*: 1817; Monaghan Co., Ireland; "In May and June, 1969, my husband, Doug Anderson, and I were in the Old Country. We rented a car in Dublin and set out for Counties Monaghan and Leitrim, hoping to find some trace of our ancestors. My grandmother, Elizabeth Stuart-Buchanan, migrated from County Leitrim, and his ancestors from Monaghan. We were unsuccessful -- all records had been destroyed when these what-were-once Northern Ireland Counties were taken over by Southern Ireland." from minutes of Buchanan-Stuart Picnic, August 19693,4
  • Marriage*: before December 1845; Brighton, Northumberland Co., Canada West; Ann's surname is found in only two places (so far) but it is different in each case. In James's Death Registration, it is Bowles. In George's Marriage Registration it is Butler. This needs to be researched.
    Note: St. Paul's Anglican Church in Brighton was destroyed by fire in 1914 which may have destroyed the record of Robert and Anne's marriage. They were Church of England.
    "St. Paul's Anglican Church, 48 Sanford Street: St. Paul's Anglican Church was established in 1862 but traces of the Anglican Community date back to 1836. ... Prior to the erection of St. Paul's, services were held in the Old Presbyterian Church on Young Street. Following a fire in 1914, which destroyed early records of the church, electricity was installed and a Choir Vestry was added." (from "A History of Brighton - Churches" on the web page of The Independent, East Northumberland's Weekly Newspaper); Principal=Mary "Ann" Bowles5,2
  • Death*: 3 May 1871; Asphodel Twp., Peterborough Co., Ontario; Date must be May 3 1871. Robert Buchanan signed his will on April 24, 1871 and is on 1871 Census. Date Apr 3 1871 per Burial???.
  • Burial*: 6 May 1871; Norwood Cemetery, Norwood, Peterborough Co., Ontario; Memorial: See Exhibit: In Memory of Robert Buchanan who died April 3 1871; also his son Thomas Henry died October 1 1875 Aged 26 years (also a poem).
    CEMSearch: Robert Buchanan, Born: Died: 1871-04-03, Norwood-Asphodel Cemetery, Peterborough County, Conc 8 Lot 18 "in Norwood". Other name: Thomas Henry Buchanan ( - 1875)
    Note: Bill Buchanan uncovered the stone June 2000 after visiting the Norwood-Asphodel Cemetery and not finding the stone once before. It was almost completely covered by a layer of grass and dirt with only a corner showing. Bill took an educated guess and started digging. Great work!
    In September 2000 the grave stone was repaired, cleaned and set up on a solid base. Rev. Charles Buchanan performed a rededication ceremony which was attended by several ancestors of Robert Buchanan.
  • Immigration*: before 1844; Canada West; Date of immigration is not known. First child was born in 1846 in Ontario (called Canada West then) and it is likely he was married here after immigrating.
  • Residence*: 1847; Ameliasburg Twp., Prince Edward, Canada West; After the birth of their first child, John, in Brighton, Robert moved to Ameliasburg Township where all the rest of their children were born.
  • Residence: 1852; Conc 2, Ameliasburg Twp., Prince Edward Co., Canada West; Robert Buchanan is not included in the Agricultural Census part of the 1851-2 Census for Ameliasburg, probably because he did not own any land. However, we can locate him in an area based on the position of his record in the 1851-2 Personal Census. He is on page 2 of Part 1 (Part 2 is missing) on the 4th line. Just above him is a large family of Hunt's - George and Harvey are the men shown as heads of families. Harvey Hunt is shown in the Agricultural Census on Conc 2, Lot 104. Just above the Hunt's is Charles Chase who is shown at Conc 2, Lot 105. Right after Robert Buchanan we see Robert Jackson, who is at Conc 3, Lot 89 and then J. A. Bonter, who is at Conc 2, Lot 111 and 112. This does not pinpoint Robert Buchanan on a specific lot but shows us that he was in the area south of Carrying Place and likely near or to the east of the Chase homestead which is occupied today by a Chase descendant. We can recognise this area by driving south on Hwy 33 from Carrying Place and noticing the large farm of communications towers on the east side of the road. If you go east down the sideroad to the just north of there, you will be in the area where Robert Buchanan lived in 1852, likely renting a house from one of the men mentioned above. We can confirm the locations of these other men in the County Atlas Map for Ameliasuburg Township which shows who lived there in 1878.6,7
  • Occupation: 1852; Ameliasburg Twp, Prince Edward Co., Canada West; Occupation: Mason per 1851-2 Census6
  • Note: 1852; Ameliasburg Twp, Prince Edward Co., Canada West; Mary Buchanan, 25, is living with Robert Buchanan in Ameliasburg Twp. in 1852. She was born in Canada and is single.6
  • Census*: 1852; Ameliasburg Twp, Prince Edward Co., Canada West; Age 35 at 1851-2 Census: Buchanan, Robert, 35, b. Ireland, Irish, E. Church, Mason, married; John, 5, b.

Church, single (Ontario Archives, 1851-2 Census, Ameliasburg Twp., Prince Edward Co., Part 1, Page 2, line 4)
    Note: The family is living in a 1 storey frame house.
    Note: Both Ann and Mary are shown born in Canada. This would appear to be a mistake, at least as far as Ann is concerned since later census records confirm she was born in Ireland. We can be less certain about Mary although, if she is a sister of Robert, she would have been born in Ireland too.8

    Note: The above transcription of the original Last Will and Testament of Robert Buchanan was produced by me, Dan Buchanan, November 9, 2002, from a copy of the Will which was provided to me this day by Bill Buchanan of Toronto who found it in the Ontario Archives.

Family: Mary "Ann" Bowles b. 1817, d. 28 Jul 1887

  • Marriage*: before December 1845; Brighton, Northumberland Co., Canada West; Ann's surname is found in only two places (so far) but it is different in each case. In James's Death Registration, it is Bowles. In George's Marriage Registration it is Butler. This needs to be researched.
    Note: St. Paul's Anglican Church in Brighton was destroyed by fire in 1914 which may have destroyed the record of Robert and Anne's marriage. They were Church of England.
    "St. Paul's Anglican Church, 48 Sanford Street: St. Paul's Anglican Church was established in 1862 but traces of the Anglican Community date back to 1836. ... Prior to the erection of St. Paul's, services were held in the Old Presbyterian Church on Young Street. Following a fire in 1914, which destroyed early records of the church, electricity was installed and a Choir Vestry was added." (from "A History of Brighton - Churches" on the web page of The Independent, East Northumberland's Weekly Newspaper); Principal=Mary "Ann" Bowles5,2

William Stuart1

M, #246, b. 1815, d. 1864
  • Birth*: 1815; Gurteen, Leitrim, Ireland; The location is listed as Enniskillin in some documents.2,1
  • Marriage*: before 1838; Ireland; Date of birth for William John Stuart is Nov 17 1838 per his Death Reg'n.; Principal=Mary Anne Hart1,3
  • Death*: 1864; Murray Twp., Northumberland Co., Canada West; Died of Typhoid fever1
  • Burial*: 1864; St. George's Churchyard Cemetery, Trenton, Hastings Co., Canada West; " ... William Stuart and Mary Hartt Stuart may be buried in St. George's Churchyard, Trenton ... " per Jean Anderson's Papers, Stuart Dates in Cemeteries
  • Note: circa May 1860; Liverpool, England; "While in Liverpool, they saw The Great Eastern, a famous vessell of its day." per Stuart immigration story from Jean Anderson's papers.4
  • Note: circa June 1860; New York, New York, U.S.A.; "They landed in New York, going that round-about way to visit a cousin, Stuart by name, who was one of the early merchant princes of New York. While in New York, they heard Jenny Lind sing." per Jean Anderson's papers.
    Note: Exact dates not known; guessing they sailed spring or early summer.4
  • Note*: circa August 1860; Murray Twp., Trenton, Northumberland Co., Canada West; "In the year 1860, William Stuart and his wife, Mary Hart, with their family of 9 children ranging in age from 19 to 2, left their home in Gurteen. Leitrim County, Ireland for Canada. They came in a sailing vessel and made the voyage in six weeks. While in Liverpool, they saw The Great Eastern, a famous vessell of its day. They landed in New York, going that round-about way to visit a cousin, Stuart by name, who was one of the early merchant princes of New York. While in New York, they heard Jenny Lind sing. They continued their journey to Trenton, as Mrs. Stuart had a sister, Mrs. Robt. Lougheed, living there. They bought a farm on the York Road and lived there in a log house. When only four years in the new country, the husband died of typhoid fever. This loss was followed in a very few years by the tragic death by drowning of the second son, Isaac. A relative in New York State left a sum of money to the late Wm. Stuart and it seemed necessary that Mrs. Stuart go there to get the legacy. Another well-to-do relative who lived there adked her to move there with her family and he would do everything possible to help them. She refused because she wished to be buried beside her husband. Heart, rather than head seems to have ruled their lives, as that wealthy relative in New York City had made them the same offer in their arrival in America but it was refused because they could only live under the British flag. Mrs. Stuart made that trip to New York State in the year Abraham Lincoln was shot. Then she gave up the farm and moved to Carrying Place where she had a little store. She died there in 1876 and was buried beside her husband in St. George's Churchyard Cemetery, Trenton. From what I have heard of her, she was an intelligent, strong-minded, deeply religious woman, while her husband was a gay, warm-hearted, irresponsible Irishman." from the first three pages of Jean Anderson's writings about the Stuart family which includes reports on several Stuart-Buchanan Picnics, for which she acted as "Historical Secretary". These documents are in the files of Dan Buchanan, Nov 18 2010.4
  • Emigration*: circa August 1860; Trenton, Hastings Co., Canada West; In the year 1860, William Stuart and his wife, Mary Hart, with their family of nine children, ranging in age from 19 to 2, left their home in Gurteen, County Leitrim, Ireland, for Canada. They came in a sailing vessel and made the voyage in six weeks. While in Liverpool, they saw the 'Great Eastern', a famous vessel of its day. They landed in New York, going that roundabout way to visit a cousin, Stuart by name, who was one of the early merchant princes of New York. While in New York they heard Jenny Lind sing. They continued their journey to Trenton, as Mrs Stuart had a sister, Mrs Robert Loughheed, living there.
    Attached to one of the pages in Amelia Hayes' black book is a letter from her dated August 21,1966, which states in part: Dear Jean: Your great Aunt Loughheed started the first Sunday School in Trenton in her house. Carrying Place, St John's Church was in use before St. George's Church, Trenton, was built, and the clergyman from Carrying Place held afternoon services in Trenton, so Trenton was called a mission. Here is the inscription: ''St.John's Mission Sunday School. Presented to Mrs R. Lougheed by the teachers and scholars of St.John's Mission Sunday School on the anniversary festival celebrating the 12th year of existance of the school as a testimony or token of their respect for her as a Pioneer Teacher and Foundress and a memento of that event. Trenton, Ontario, December 4,1871''
    William and Mary Stuart bought a farm on the York Road and lived in a log house, which is still standing (in the 1940's). When only four years in their new country, William Stuart died of typhoid fever. This loss was followed in a very few years by the tragic death by drowning of the second son, Isaac. A relative in New York State left a sum of money to the late William Stuart and it seemed necessary that Mrs Stuart go there to get the legacy. Another well-to-do relative who lived there asked her to move to New York State with her family and he would do everything possible to help them. She refused, because she wished to be burried beside her husband. Heart, rather than head , seems to have ruled their lives, as that wealthy relative in New York City had made them the same offer on their arrival in America, but it was refused because they could only live under the British flag. Mrs Stuart made the trip to New York State the year Abraham Lincoln was shot (1865). Then she gave up the farm and moved to Carrying Place, where she had a little store. She died there in 1876 and was burried beside her husband in St. George's Churchyard in Trenton. From what I have heard of her,she was an intelligent, strong-minded, deeply religious woman, while her husband was a gay warm-hearted, irresponsible Irishman. Their good qualities can be seen in greater or lesser degree in their descendants, but of course none of their less desirable characteristics has been passed on. Jean Anderson, July 20,1972.5
  • Residence*: circa August 1860; Trenton, Hastings Co., Canada West; They bought a house on the York Road (#2 highway) right beside the school in Trenton. The house was one story and made of logs.
