Kerr's Creek Massacres

According to multiple sources, James Buchanan was killed by Shawnee Indians in the "2nd Kerr's Creek Massacre" on 17 July, 1763, which is confirmed in the deposition of William Patton (listed below). Additional information is listed in the following article:

The Kerr's Creek Massacres 1759-1763

  • Vol 2: Page 269. - 1806 November 7 Page 145--Wm. Patton, aged 64, deposes, in Rockbridge, 7th November, 1806, he has lived in Rockbridge 56 years since last May. After the Revolution there was a rapid increase of immigration from the North. James Wardlaw and deponent's father were intimate. James had a son Hugh and a son Robert. There were Indian troubles for about 10 years. Fifty years ago there was a fort at McClung; the last incursion was 43 years ago, when 16 or 17 people were killed. Deponent helped bury them and they were attacked at the burial. These were very early settlers, viz: James, Alexr. Saml. Walker, James Moore, Saml. Coalter, Jno. Wallace, Archd. Rhea, James Rutherford, James Buchanan, Andrew and Charles Hays. Deponent was born September, 1742. McDowell was killed Christmas or New Year's, after his birth. (Note: this deposition names James Buchanan as one of the victims in the 2nd Kerr's Creek Massacre, which according to Patton "occurred 43 years ago" when his deposition was taken in 1806, which would be in 1763).
