Also added information from Chancery case involving land James Buchanan bought from Ephraim Johnston in 1815. Added will entries for Catherine Ryburn, Janie D. Carmack, Ellen Gilmer Clark and Melitia Ann (Williams) Ryburn. Added 2 children to the family of John Buchanan Edmondson. This and other information was added from a 1962 newspaper notice alerting readers to a pending lawsuit surrounding the estate of Jean Keys Buchanan. The suit appears to have been filed in an attempt to clarify the heirs, of which there were many (thanks to Martha Keys for these last items).
7 Nov 2005Added several deeds involving land belonging to James Buchanan and/or his children (courtesy Carolyn Ryburn) - also a different version of his possible parentage. In addition added 1860 agricultural schedule information for William McNeal Ryburn, Col. William S. Ryburn, Col. Robert Buchanan Edmondson, Robert Stuart Clark Hutton, Dr. Arthur Dixon Hutton, James Clark Porterfield and Claiborne Lewis Shugart (again, thanks to Carolyn).

(Buchanan) Zimmerman, Rev. John Houston Wallace and Mahlon S. Susong. Note: I did not abstract the slave information for every person of interest. The slave schedules do not provide any information on the owner other than his or her name, making it difficult to distinguish between 2 similiar names.
