Notes on Murdoch Buchanan:

1. Murcock's obituary: As the twilight shadows were gathering on the evening of March 6, 1931, the angel of death crossed the threshold of the home of Murdock Buchanan, at Fredericton, PEI, and claimed all that was mortal of the father and head of that family.
Murdock Buchanan was born at Clyde, PEI, March 8, 1852, thus he was within two days of his 79th birthday at his death. He had lived all his married life in the home in which he died, having resided there for 53 years. He was an ideal father, a kindly neighbor, a most lovable man and a successful farmer. The deceased did not enjoy very robust health during the last few years of his life, suffering from a malingering disease which precluded his attendance at public gatherings. But his home was always open to visitors whom he delighted to welcome.
He is survived by his sorrowing widow, four sons and four daughters, William, at Albany, PEI, Stanley, at Concord, New Hampshire, USA, Herbert at home and Peter at Fredericton, PEI, the daughters are Mrs.
James Stewart, at Concord, New Hampshire, USA, Mrs. John Cutcliffe, at Fredericton, PEI, Mrs. Phoebe Stewart, of Fredericton, PEI, and Mrs. John Rodd, of Concord, New Hampshire, USA. There is one surviving brother, Duncan Buchanan of New Dominion, PEI besides 22 grandchildren to all to
whom the sympathies of the community is extended.
The funeral service was held at the home of the deceased on Sunday afternoon March 8, at 2:00 and was conducted by the Rev. Thos. Palethorpe, when practically the whole community were present. Interment was made in the cemetery near by where we tenderly laid to rest all that was moral of
the deceased. "Until the day breaks, and the shadows flee away."
The floral offerings were a pillow from the family, pillow from Concord, and a spray from Fredericton Institute. [DH]

2. Murdock's son Elmer was killed in a car accident in New Brunswick traveling back to see his father when he was sick. [DH]
