Samuel Greeley Buchanan was the first son of Robert Grant Buchanan 1866 1954 and Mary Dorthula Short 1868 1950.

Tennessee State Marriages confirms that Greeley was the groom of Mary Virginia Moore on Jan 20, 1911. They became parents of: Joe Harvey Buchanan 1913 1980; Ola Pearl Buchanan 1915 2009 and James Robert Buchanan 1918 1991.

The 1920 census found Greeley had purchased a farm in rural Bulls Gap, Tennessee, where and he was farming his land. Their oldest son was 6 years old and going to school. The other two were 4 1/2 and 1 1/2.

In the 1930 census Greeley living in the house that he and Mary owned, and their three children 3 were teen agers and still attending school. Greeley has found employment as a laborer for the Railroad. The census doesn't indicate if he was also farming his land.

The 1940 census revealed that Greeley owned his home valued at $800.00 in rural Bulls Gap Tennessee on Walker Church Rd. He was working 32 hours a week for $620.00 a month, for the Steam Railway as an Engine Washer. He had completed 1 year of high school. Living with them was a grand son, 5 year old William H. Buchanan and Greeley's 73 year old father, Robert Buchanan

Dec. 29, 1966 was a sad day for his wife and children, because Samuel Greeley Buchanan's spirit had returned to God, his Maker. The Mary, her familyand their friends gathered at the Gulley Cemetery to bid their beloved Greeley a fond farewell. (bio by Audrey DeCamp Hoffman)
