Dugald Buchanan was born in Greenock, Scotland around 1896, married Annie Mackenzie from the Isle of Skye, Annie died in 1911. They had two daughters , Eliza and Mary. Dugald went to work on the railroad in Canada and left the two girls with Annie's sister on the Isle of Skye. Dugald married a Marjorie Gibson and lived in Saskatchewan. They had three children. Dugald died in 1935. I am trying to find out anything I can about Marjorie, their children and Dugald in Canada. Eliza migrated to Australia and Mary to Canada.
Eliza was my mother-in-law but I have no details about Mary. If anybody could help me I would be very grateful.
Looking for descendance of Winfield S. Buchanan b. 1861, daughter Jennie A. Buchanan-Edgar b. 1896, son William Allen Buchanan b.1899, grandfarther also named William Allen Buchanan who married Sarah Harriet Setzer in Caldwell county, NC August 1855. Wm and Sarah moved to Hawkins county, TN abt. 1859. Other childern of Winfield were Iaasc H., Drucilla, Mollie B. and Iva M.Buchanan. 1900 US Census shows the family living in White Horn, Hawkins county, TN.
My husband David, is the son of grandson of Jennie A. Buchanan-Edgar and Andrew "Judge" Edgar, they were married abt. 1913 in TN, then moved to Leona Mines, Va. and the son of Linnie Oral and Wilma Lewis-Edgar.
Jennie had four childern, Eugene, Clarence, Linnie and Clyde Edgar. She died shortly after Clyde was born, abt 1926-27 and is burried someplace in Hawkins county, TN. Jennie's mother Sarah B. ( maiden name unknown ) raised Clyde.
David's father was only 3 or 3 1/2 years old when Jennie died. Friends and family of Jennie recounted to Linnie's wife Wilma how the little boy looked into the grave and told his Aunt Mollie " That's my mommy down there..."
Linnie passed Jan. 2002 and although he didn't know much about his mother, what he did know is now gone. We have been searching for 13 years starting out with next to nothing. We are very close, but we still need help pulling the last few threads together. We would appreciate very much hearing from anyone who may have information.

My grandfather's name is Lewis Buchanan his Father's name was John Buchanan from Tennessee and his mother's name was Hattie from Virginina. During the 1920 census he was listed as 2 years old and had several brother's and sisters and they lived in Texas. If this family is familiar to your family please send me a message. I'm trying to locate ancestors in Tennessee and Virginia.
