    Note from Dan Buchanan: I received a call Tuesday afternoon from Dixie telling me that Aunt Bernice had passed away on Monday. She also asked me to be a pall bearer which I accepted gladly. I took Thursday off and went to Trenton in the afternoon, attending at the Walas Funeral Home in Brighton at 6:00 pm with the family and then for the Eastern Star Service. Visitation commenced at 7 pm and was busy until around 8:30 when we had time to visit. The funeral service on Friday was touching and comforting. Dad provided his normal inspiring and thoughtful message and our work as pall bearers was short, cold and satisfying. Good family visiting followed in the Church Hall and I was able to speak to several persons of interest. Later I went to Dad's in Belleville where we had supper, worked a bit with this new digital camera and digital picture frame and had a good visit. All in all, not a bad few days under the circumstances. Aunt Bernice would have been happy to see the family get together for whatever reason. (Dan Buchanan, Feb 17, 2008)7

  • Death*: 16 June 2012; Belleville General Hospital, Sills Wing, Belleville, Hastings Co., Ontario; Dad passed away around noon on Saturday, June 16, 2012, peacefully, in the Sills Wing, Belleville General Hospital. He had been moved to the Sills Wing the day before and they were just about to move him to a private room. I was on the Don Valley Parkway, coming back from a morning at the DWW office when Tom called to tell me the news. (Dan Buchanan)4

  • Residence: 11 September 1925; Toronto Street, Colborne, Northumberland Co., Ontario; Charles was born in the house on Toronto Street in Colborne.
  • Residence: 1940; Goodfellow Farm, Brighton Twp., Mount Olivet, Northumberland Co., Ontario; Phill Goodfellow told me after Dad died (June 16 2012) that Charles had come to the Goodfellow farm in 1940 at age 15 because his father believed that at age 15 there had been enough schooling and a young man should start working. At that time, that was the age you could leave school. This means that Charles had been at the Goodfellow farm for two years when his uncle Bill was elected as an MPP. Phil explains that both Bill Goodfellow and Charles Buchanan regretted later in life their limited education. Charles felt it when he started to deal with other ministers who had university educations and Bill experienced it during his time in Cabinet. In each case, common sense and "people skills" were much better assets than a diploma. It also adds extra meaning to the time Bill Goodfellow saw Rev. Charles Buchanan after he was ordained and told him how proud he was that there was a minister in the family. Dad told me that story many times, with an extra edge to his voice. (Dan Buchanan)4

Buchanan, a former resident, who died in Trenton Memorial Hospital, in his 81st year, on Wednesday evening, June 25, after a serious illness of two and one half weeks. He was born near Hastings, Ontario, the oldest son of a family of nine, of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Buchanan (nee Elizabeth Stuart). His father died when he was still a boy and he ably assisted his mother with the many family responsibilities, receiving his Public School education at the Fourth Concession School, Brighton Township. He operated a grist mill for some years at Norham. In 1922 he moved to Colborne where he engaged in farming until his retirement. After the death of his wife, in September, 1950, he went to reside with his son Charles at Codrington. His chief interests were his home and Church, being a faithful member of the United Church. He was a generous person, always had a smile and a cheery word for everyone. For many years he had been handicapped by complete deafness, an infirmity he bore with great patience and perseverance. Surviving are his daughter, Mrs. William Brown (Bernice), Salem; his son, Charles, Codrington; four grandchildren Dixie and Jimmie Brown, Salem; Mary Lou and Danny Buchanan, Codrington; also two brothers, Benjamin, Warkworth; Tom, Kelona, B.C.; and four sisters, Mrs. Edwin Adams (Stella), Colborne; Mrs. Clayton Smith (Abbie), Mrs. Edward Mitchell (Gertrude), both of Toronto; Mrs. Benjamin Fralick (Amelia), Cloverdale, B.C.

  • Note: circa 1955; Buchanan Home, Codrington, Northumberland Co., Ontario; In the early 1920s Linnie (King) Ames was increasingly agitated by the memorial of William Henry King standing up at the south east corner of the Ames farm house. It had been there since it was erected by George King in the 1860s and was a constant reminder of the shame that the notorious murderer had imposed on his family. Linnie King was a niece of Dr. King, being the daughter of David Nelson King, a younger brother of William Henry King, who was the oldest of the King children. At some point, the presence of the stone became unbearable for Linnie so she asked her two younger sons, Lloyd and Kenneth, to get rid of it. The boys did the expedient thing. They pulled the stone out of the ground, dug a shallow trench, lay the stone down in it and covered it with sod. Out of sight, out of mind, might be the intent of this exercize. In any case, that is how the memorial of William Henry King ended up in the ground at the south east corner of the Buchanan house in the mid-1950s when septic work motivated Lloyd Ames to move it. In the process, Charles Buchanan took two pictures of it and they reburied the stone in the garden just a few feet away, where it was pulled up by the plough about a decade later. (Dan Buchanan)4

  • Note*: April 1962; Buchanan Farm House, Codrington, Northumberland Co., Ontario; The Tweedsmuir Histories of Codrington include a picture of a scrap of newspaper found in an upstairs bedroom in the Buchanan house. The caption reads: "In doing some repair work this paper was taken from the wall of an upstairs room of Mary & Charles Buchanan's house. This house was the first one built in Codrington."
    Note: This contradicts the story of a Mr. Burnham who was supposed to have named the village and built the first brick house. Most likely, both of those things were done by George King, the first settler in the immediate village area in 1846.3
  • Note: July 1962; Buchanan Farm, Codrington, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "Two-Headed Calf Born at Codrington; May Be Shipped to Guelph For Study; Campbellford (ENS) – A deformed calf, with two heads, has been born on the farm of Charles Buchanan at Codrington, 10 miles south of here. The calf, the progeny of a Herford bull and a Holstein heifer, was born Friday, and although it is weak, it appears normal in other respects. The Two heads protrude from a single neck. The heads each have two eyes, although the two centre eyes are blind and are deter??..ing?. The animal breathes through one nostril on each head, apparently the outer two. Although both mouths open slightly at the corners, the lower jaw does not function. Both tongues operate in unison, as though joined at the base. The calf is fed mother’s milk mixed with corn syrup by means of a veterinarian’s syringe, but the milk sometimes will run out of the other mouth. Campbellford Veterinarian Dr. J. E. Trimble said that while such a birth is not as rare as many may think, it was the first time he had known a calf with two heads lived more than a short time after birth.
    Is it believed the calf will be shipped to the Ontario Agricultural College at Guelph for examination. Veterinary officials do not feel it will lie more than a few days.
    Meanwhile, the Buchanan farm at Codrington is a busy place, with visitors arriving throughout the day and evening to see the freak of nature. Mr. Buchanan said the cow which bore the deformed calf had not been given the drug Thalidomide during her pregnancy." (There is a picture with this article, showing the calf with Dan holding up its head.

  • Birth*: 14 February 1921; Wales; Date Feb 14 1921 & location Wales per Obit.
  • Marriage*: 5 December 1942; London, England; "Born Nan Griffiths in Wales, Nan was the youngest of four. Her father, the local school master, had high standards for his children, instilling in them a lifelong thirst for knowledge and a desire to excel. Orphaned at the age of 14, Nan chose to seek her fortune in London, England where she rose quickly through the ranks of Freeman's, England's first mail order company. When WWII triggered the arrival of Canadian troops, Nan met and married a young officer, Kent (Buck) Buchanan." per Obit of Nan (Griffiths) Buchanan.; Principal=Major William Kent "Buck" Buchanan
  • Death*: 21 August 2019; Manitock, Ontario; "Nan Buchanan; FEBRUARY 14, 1921 ~ AUGUST 21, 2019; Buchanan - Nan; Passed peacefully on Wednesday, August 21, 2019, age 98 years. Beloved wife of the late Kent (Buck) Buchanan. Treasured mother of Alan (Mary), Betty-Ann Gilliland (Dan), Bob (Helen), Sue Pierce (Rusty) and Sheila Buchanan (Joe Agueci). Predeceased by her son Jim. Loving Nana of Stephanie, Trevor, Devin, Jesse, Dan, Nick, and Jeanne. Great grandmother to 6. Born Nan Griffiths in Wales, Nan was the youngest of four. Her father, the local school master, had high standards for his children, instilling in them a lifelong thirst for knowledge and a desire to excel. Orphaned at the age of 14, Nan chose to seek her fortune in London, England where she rose quickly through the ranks of Freeman's, England's first mail order company. When WWII triggered the arrival of Canadian troops, Nan met and married a young officer, Kent (Buck) Buchanan. He survived Italy and she survived the bombings in London, and at war's end they, along with their firstborn Alan, crossed the Atlantic on the Queen Mary to start a new life in Canada. For the next thirty years Nan supervised the frequent postings of her ever-expanding family until Buck retired from his military career in Ottawa. Settled at last and with children leaving home, Nan was able to use her skills to work with the Children's Aid Society promoting the infant stimulation program focussing on mothers at risk. Nan was extroverted and civic-minded, always involved with her local church. Her interests were wide-ranging and she enjoyed bridge, book groups and her Margaret Morris Movement. In retirement she and Buck split their time between the cottage, where she loved to be in the water especially for her 7am swim, and their house on the river in Manotick. But above all she treasured her family and would follow them to the ends of the earth, which she did quite regularly, visiting her family in Australia, BC, Michigan and the U.K.
    The 2 great tragedies in her life were the death of her son, Jim age 21, and the loss of her beloved Buck age 92, from which she never fully recovered. But she pressed on regardless, fueled by her energy and her sense of adventure. This motivated her to make her last two big voyages at the age of 88 and 89 to Australia and England chaperoned by her son Alan. She celebrated her 90th birthday in Victoria, among friends and family before having her many opinions quieted by a stroke. She spent her final years at Orchard Walk Retirement Home in Greely. Heartfelt thanks go to the staff there for their kindness and their respect of Nan's fierce desire to maintain her independence. Friends may attend a visitation at St. James Anglican, 1138 Bridge St., Manotick on Tuesday, August 27 th from 10 a.m. until of funeral service at 11 a.m. Those wishing may make memorial donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Dementia Society.
