Pearl Webster Buchanan
Birth: Jun. 14, 1882
Jackson Center
Mercer County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Jan. 24, 1977
Sewickley
Allegheny County
Pennsylvania, USA

Pearl Webster Buchanan was the seventh of nine children born in Jackson Center, PA to Sarah M. (Hawke) and Sylvester Murphy Webster. She died at the age of 94 in Sewickley, PA from arterioscleritic heart disease.

Her profession was that of a seamstress and pattern maker, and she made clothes for many people in the Butler, PA area throughout her lifetime. She was a good cook and baker, and her claim to fame was her lemon/date cookies.

She was a hard worker and devoted her life to her family and the Butler Methodist church. She never lived very far away from her eight brothers and sisters and managed to outlive them all. She stood about 5'6" and had dark brown hair as a girl.

She married John Francis Buchanan in 1899, and they had one daughter, Ruth. When Pearl reached the age of 89 she moved with her daughter who lived in Sewickley, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.

She saw many facinating changes in her lifetime from growing up on a farm where the only means of transportaion in the day was a horse and buggy to flying in an airplane to San Diego, California in the late 1960s to visit her grandson and great grandsons.

Some of her beliefs were: no working on Sunday, no movies on Sunday, no playing cards allowed in the house, no singing at the table, and never saying the words 'heck' or 'darn' because they were the same as swearing.
