John Buchanan family

Great grandma Emmer had two children when her husband, John Henry Buchanan left her. It seems he did not accept the second child. A woman once said to her, "I will make a dress for the baby if you name her Pansy."

John Buchanan had many children with his second wife. Daugher Ethel went to live with her paternal grandparents.
