BUCHANAN, STARK posted by Terry Rumore on Thursday, December 5, 1996

I am trying to find the names of the parents of Riley Amber BUCHANAN, Henry BUCHANAN, Charley BUCHANAN and Marion BUCHANAN. Riley would have been born in 1872, and I know that Henry was born on October 10, 1878. I found a William Ambrose BUCHANAN and a Francis STARK who had two children born to them. One child was named Marion S. BUCHANAN, born 1/27/1877 in San Saba, Texas. The second son was named Charles Buchanan, born 1/31/1882 in San Saba, Texas. These two names match the names of at least two of the brothers I have on my list. But being that I don't know the parent's names, I have no way of knowing for sure. I am hoping that someone can tell me more about William Ambrose BUCHANAN and his Wife Francis STARK. Could they possibly be the parents of the four BUCHANAN's that I'm researching? If anyone in San Saba know or can find out more on this family of William and Francis BUCHANAN, please do not hesitate in e-mailing me.
