    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.3,4

  • Census: April 1891; Murray Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario; Age 20 at 1891 Census: see Mary Jane Buchanan (mother)9
  • Note: circa 1900; Murray Twp., Carrying Place, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "There was a boardwalk between the store and the Buchanan farm whcih was west of St. John's Anglican Church. The store burned in 1911." from 7th Town/Ameliasburgh Township; Past and Present - pg 73
    Note: Page 73 shows a picture of the store with the Buchanan farm buildings and St. John's Anglican Church in the background.10
  • Note: circa 1900; Murray Twp., Carrying Place, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "Then below them was John Buchanan's farm. He lived alone after his mother died until he married Arwilda MacDougall and moved to Picton. John Hendricks had a strip of land next. He used to grow beans for the factory. I have picked for him. Then east to the Anglican Church." from Gunshots & Gleanings of Historic Carrying Place - pg. 42
  • Census: April 1901; Murray Twp., Northumberland Co., Ontario; Age 28 at 1901 Census: Buchanan, John, 28, Jan 1 1873, farmer; Jane, 59, b. May 15 1842, mother11
  • 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 (besides 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.12
  • Residence*: 4 February 1918; Lot 6 Conc C, Murray Twp., Carrying Place, Northumberland Co., Ontario; Land Registry Records show that John Buchanan sold a small part of his land to the Hydro Electric Power Commission for $10.0013

  • Note: circa 1930; Murray Twp., Carrying Place, Northumberland Co., Ontario; "There were always lots of heated debates and fireworks - like the time John Buchanan was chairman and claimed Harry McCruder's barn was on school property" from Gunshots & Gleanings of Historic Carrying Place - pg. 46
  • Note: circa 1930; Murray Twp., Carrying Place, Northumberland Co., Ontario; Bernice Brown and Charles Buchanan recall going with their parents to Carrying Place to visit "Johnny". They recall the farm beside the Anglican Church as well as Johnny Jr. who was close to their age and a willing playmate. It was understood that the Buchanan's in Carrying Place were cousins but it is not clear exaclty how - probably because Robert Buchanan and Thomas Buchanan were brothers.
  • Residence: 8 September 1942; Lot 6 Conc C, Murray Twp., Carrying Place, Northumberland Co., Ontario; Land Registry Records show John E. Buchanan & wife as Grantor and John E. Buchanan & Arwilda Buchanan as Grantee - and afterward to John Harold Buchanan, appointee in remainder - the south west half on the north west side of Carrying Place road.13
