Mrs. Anne (McKean) Buchanan

Born February 25, 1773. She was married April 6, 1797, to Andrew Buchanan, Jr., son of General Andrew Buchanan, and younger brother to Dr. George Buchanan. Another brother writing soon after the wedding, remarks that "Andrew has brought home an handsome, accomplished, and I trust amiable woman." Andrew was born in Baltimore, July 29, 1766, and was a merchant in that city. Mrs. Anne Buchanan died May 26, 1804, and was buried on the 28th (St Paul's Ch. Register), in the Buchanan graveyard at Druid Hill. (The date June 3, 1804, Pa. Mag., iii, 235, is wrong.)

(After her death Mr. Buchanan married a second time, Miss Carolina Virginia Marylanda Johnson, daughter of Joshua Johnson, Esq., and sister of Mrs. President John Quincy Adams, by whom he had one child, the late Brevet Maj. General Robert C. Buchanan, US Army, a veteran officer of the Mexican and late war, and the recipient of five brevets for gallantry and bravery in action.)

Andrew Buchanan died in Baltimore, October 2, 1811, and was also buried on the 4th (St. Paul's Ch. Reg.), at Druid Hill. A portrait of him by Savage, 1795. and also one of his second wife by Savage in 1796, are in possession of Mrs. General R. C. Buchanan. They are now in the Corcoran Art Gallery at Washington, where they were placed with others, December 12, 1878.
