Arrived in Nashville from Danville, Kentucky on December 14, 1778. At first the family lived at Fort Nashborough with others of the first settlers of Nashville, and bilding the third home there. In 1785, he moved his family about 6 miles east of the fort, and built his own fort, named Buchanan Station, on Mill Creek. They eventually built the first mill in the county here. The fort was repeatedly attacked by Indians, most notably on September 30, 1792, when a force of around 900 Indians attacked. The men of this fort fought back all night, killing one Indian chief and many others, but only having one settler slightly wounded.
He was the oldest son of John and Jane Trindle Buchanan. His second marriage was to Sarah Ridley, who is buried beside him. A grandson of the son of his first wife was John Price Buchanan, a Governer of Tennessee.
