Birth: 1852
Augusta County
Virginia, USA
Death: 1886
Los Angeles County
California, USA


Son of James Buchanan and Mary Jane McCutcheon Buchanan of Walkers Creek, Augusta County, Virginia;

Grandson of James Buchanan and Margaret Hanna Buchanan of Walkers Creek, Augusta County, Virginia, and of Robert Wardlaw McCutcheon and Rachel McCrory Armstrong McCutcheon of Little Calf Pasture, Augusta County, Virginia;

Brother of Rachel Armstrong Buchanan (Mrs. James LaPradda S. McCutcheon), William Montgomery Buchanan (Wife, Mattie H. Buchanan), Arutha Ann Buchanan, Robert H. Buchanan, Bolivar Baxter Buchanan (Wife, Frances Belle Moffett Buchanan) and John Buchanan.

In the early 1800's, James moved across the country to settle in Wilmington, Los Angeles County, California, to be near many of his Aunts, Uncles and Cousins, who had moved out from Virginia years earlier. By this time, James was already a Physician, as were some of his McCrory and Armstrong family members.

Dr. James Sylvester Buchanan died in 1886, at the age of 34. He is buried with his Aunt, Margaret Armstrong Wallace, her daughter (his cousin) Leila Wallace McCutcheon and Leila's husband (another of James' cousins), Frank McCutcheon.

He is fondly remembered by all of the families who loved him and the friends whose lives he touched.
