Dr. Buchanan had been a resident of the county for about 30 years, [Note he was born in the County, 13 Dec 1819] living at Lowell until his health failed, where he accumulated a considerable property, and established a good reputation. He was a kind man, unassuming and charitably disposed towards all. During his suffering he was called on to part with his companion whose death occurred from the same disease."
