Information on George Buchanan
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~fairbanks/buchanan/history.htm GEORGE BUCHANAN, son of James and Mary (Reside) Buchanan, was born about 1746 in Augusta County, Virginia. He married Margaret McAfee about 1767, daughter of James and Jane (McMichael) McAfee. She was born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania about 1746. (For further information on the McAfee family, see the History on the McAfee's). On June 10, 1770, he bought 163 acres on Catawba Creek in Botetourt County, Virginia from his father-in-law, James McAfee. George sold the land back to James McAfee on May 15, 1772. He later moved to what is now Washington County, Virginia. In his father's will, which was proved in 1765, he had received 107 acres of a parcel of land on Walker's Creek in Augusta. In November of 1782, while living in Washington County, he and his brothers, who had also received parcels of the same property on Walker's Creek, deeded that land to their brother David, which amounted to 415 acres. About 1782 George and Margaret moved their family to Salt River in Mercer County, Kentucky. On July 11, 1794, he gave a power of attorney to Arthur Campbell to receive a deed from James Wood for 200 acres on Cedar Creek in Washington County, Virginia, receiving the deed from Mary Wood on November 10, 1794. George died in May 5, 1813 in Mercer County, Kentucky. We don't have a death date for his wife, Margaret.
