Emily Jane "Emma" English Buchan
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Feb. 15, 1856
Pulaski County
Georgia, USA
Death: Apr. 15, 1924
Orange County
Florida, USA

Emma and Peter Buchan were married on Christmas Eve December 1876. R.E. Mills MG performed the ceremony in Pulaski GA.

They had at least 8 children:

Joseph Arthur Buchan 1878 1950
Ann E. Buchan 1880
Thomas Jefferson Buchan 1886 1974
Lee Ola Buchan 1889 1957
Lela Buchan 1893
David Buchan 1894 1911
Clarence Cornelius Buchan 1896 1977
Daniel Otis Buchan 1898 1963

Family lore is that Emma and Peter had come to Florida from Georgia to work on a farm. While in Florida, Emma died. The family could not afford to transport the body back to Georgia. The owner of the farm (Mather-Smith) they were working for paid for the funeral in exchange for a music concert by the Buchan Quartet (Thomas, Daniel, Clarence, Emma Bernice).

The writing on the stone is homemade - I wonder if Peter, her husband, or Thomas her son, wrote her name on the stone.

Emily Jane was 68 years old when she passed. Emily died from uremia.
