Preach the Word
II Timothy 4:2

The following information was given to me by a descendant of Rev. Buchanan.
The information that I have here was taken out of what was believed to be the family Bible of Arthur and Mary (Boswell) Buchanan. The Bible was owned by Naomi Sparks of Mitchell Co and given to a David Stamey who copied the information. Leonard was born October 24, 1809 and he died June 15, 1881. He was born in Rutherford Co., N. C. and married Elizabeth (Tate) Buchanan on January 18, 1829. She was born *1809-1810 and died September 12, 1886 in Mitchell Co., N.C.. They we married in Burke Co., N.C.

He was a 2nd Lieutenant Chaplain in the Civil War, founded Big Rock Creek Church, and was the first preacher at Yellow Mountain Baptist Church.
