After following the pursuit of farming successfully, Mr and Mrs Buchanan moved to West Alexander in 1882. Mr Buchanan's death occurred in 1900. Mrs Buchanan remained here until nearly 6 years ago when she went to Wheeling Island and made her home about a year with her daughter, Mrs Chester Abercrombie. From there she went to Okmulgee about 5 years ago, enjoying good health in the home of her son until last December.
