Death of Alexander Buchanan
Saturday evening occurred the death of Alexander Buchanan, aged 76 years. He had been suffering for several weeks from a stroke of paralysis which finally caused his death.
Mr. Buchanan was one of the oldest citizens of Monroe County. He came to this county in 1823. He lived at Lewisville until a few years ago when he bought property here and became a resident of this place. He was widely and favorably known as an honest upright citizen, having established his character early in life and maintaining it to the end. He was a member of the Presbyterian church at the Buchanan charge and a member of the Masonic order at Woodsfield.
The funeral service took place Monday; Rev. C. C. B. Duncan, his pastor, assisted by Rev. Alfred Walls and Rev. W. Brucker, conducted the services at his late residence. The remains were placed then in charge of the Masonic brethren, who tenderly bore them to the Buchanan cemetery, where they were buried by the beautiful and impressive ceremony of that order. A wife and several children are left.
