Andrew Jackson "Jackie" Buchanan
To go to the ancestor chart on which this person is listed,
Andrew was a Farmer born about 1789 at Locust Cove in Wythe County (now Smyth County), Virginia. He was married in Washington Couny March 29, 1810 by Rev. Edward Crawford.
There has been much confusion for many years that he has been listed as "John Buchanan". It is apparent that this misunderstanding was due to the fact that Andrew had nicknames, (because of "Jackson")"Jackie" also "Black Jack". Evidently, then as today, "Jack" equates to "John". To quote from BUCHANAN A GENEALOGICAL HISTORY by John A. Blakemore, "Called "Jackie". Sometimes listed as John." Presumably, some researchers saw him listed as "Jack" and assumed "John".
As of 1954 the stone chimney of his home in Thompson Valley was still standing. It is reported that at some point he moved to Logan County, West Virginia, however, he died 1863 in Tazwell County, Virginia and is buried in the family cemetery south of his home.
