Mrs Jane "Jennie" Trindle Buchanan
Birth: 1740
Lancaster County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: 1792
Davidson County
Tennessee, USA

Jane "Jennie" Trindle Buchanan was the daughter of Lt. William Trindle and Margaret Trindle. She maried John Buchanan, Sr. prior to 1758 in Pennsylvania. She and her family were early settlers of Nashville having arrived 14 December 1778. She was the mother of five children, John (Major), Jane "Jennie" who married James Todd, Alexander, Samuel, Nancy who married James Mulherin. Alexander was mortally wounded by Indians during the attack known as "The Battle of the Bluffs" on the French Lick Station on April 2, 1781, and died shortly thereafter. Samuel was killed about 1783 a mile below the fort (Buchanan Station) on Mill Creek.

Her grandson Henry was elected to the legislature of Tennessee in 1875 and her great grandson John Price Buchanan was elected to the legislature in 1886 and 1888 and elected Governor of Tennessee in 1890.

John Sr. was killed by the Indians in his cabin near the fort (Buchanan Station), in April 1787. Jane is believed to have died after 1792 at Buchanan Station on Mill Creek.

Both Jane and her husband John are believed to buried in the Buchanan Station Cemetery on Mill Creek along with sons,Samuel, Alexander, and Major John and probably her daughter, Jane Buchanan Todd. One report says that "the center of the cemetery where there is a bushy area with broken stones is the last resting place of Jane and John."
