Biography*   (Excerpted from the Biography of John W. Buchanon, George's son)

George Ramsey Buchanan, the father of John W., was born in Wayne Township, in 1823, and is now living in Chester, on a farm adjoining the one where his parents died. He was brought up to farming, teaching school winters until the breaking out of the California gold fever, when he sailed for the New Eldorado, leaving February 4, 1850, going by way of New York and the Isthmus of Panama. He stayed in the Golden State about three years, and then returned, bringing with him several thousand dollars as the reward of his labors. On his arrival in Ohio he engaged in mercantile business at Jeromeville, Ashland County, which, however, he carried on but a short time, returning to his native county, where he took charge of the home farm for his parents ; he has ever since lived there, and now owns the home farm, to which he has added by purchase. He is a man of strict Christian principles, a prominent member of the Presbyterian Church, of which he has long been an elder, and has always been a liberal supporter of " Chester Church." Throughout the county he is known as a thoroughly honest and upright man. He has been twice married, his first wife being Miss Mary Dunham, who died in Jeromeville, leaving no issue, her only child having died at birth. His second wife was Miss Lydia Firestone, daughter of David and Elizabeth Firestone, natives of Pennsylvania, and residents of Chester Township, where both died. Their daughter was born in Wayne County, in 1834. She is a member of the Lutheran Church, a sincere Christian, and noted especially for her generosity and hospitality. Mr. and Mrs. Buchanan are the parents of seven children, of whom three—Franklin, Sidney and Ira—are deceased; those living are. John W. ; Cynthia Alice, wife of Harvey L. Piper, of Chester Township; Mary E. and Edward F., living with their parents.2
