The Oak Tree by Thomas Bewick

The Buchanan family begins in Hunterdon County with the Scottish immigrants, Samuel and Jane or Janet Buchanan, whose name was frequently spelled “Bohannon.” It is not known whether they had any more than one child. But one was enough–their son John left a family with a long history.

John Buchanan became a well-known figure in 18th century Amwell Township, especially because of his popular tavern located at the intersection of today’s Route 523 and 579. I have written at some length about this tavern. To see these articles, click on “taverns” under Topics in the right-hand column, and scroll down to the second page, or search on ‘Buchanan’s Tavern.’

Hiram Deats interviewed Joseph C. Buchanan about 1910, who said that before 1776, a Samuel Buchanan of Glasgow, Scotland eloped with his wife Janet and emigrated to America. She sold her jewellery in New York, and he bought a farm on “Bohonnan’s Hill” between Ringoes and Croton. They probably had several children, but only one of his was heard of, son John. Joseph C. Buchanan knew nothing of this John Buchanan except that he had kept a tavern at the foot of Buchanan’s Hill (where Adam Robbins lives).

My original tree, published back in 2019, began with John’s parents. But since they only had one known child, it made sense to start with their son John. As a result, I am including an extra generation.

As is my practice, I include the children of daughters, but not their grandchildren. Additions and corrections are welcome; use the comments section below or email me directly
