Timeline of the James Buchanan Log House

Compiled from Davidson County Land Records by Lu M. Whitworth, October 23, 2004.

Date Name(s)
1784 Thomas Gillispie (land from North Carolina)
1807 James Buchanan (purchased 310 acres from Thomas Gillispie)
1807-08 James Buchanan built log house on land purchsed from Thomas Gillispie.
1810 James Buchanan & Lucinda East Buchanan married & Lived in Log House (James Buchanan died in 1841.  Lucinda continued to live in the house until her death in 1865).
1841 James Buchanan Estate Settled.  (from James Buchanan)
1865 Lucinda East died April 1865.
  Daughter, Harriett Buchanan, continued to live in the Log House until it was sold in 1867.
1867 Thomas Frazier & wife Margaret McReynolds Frazier (from James Buchanan Heirs)
  (Judge Frazier died in 1887;  Margaret McReynolds Frazier died in 1910)
  NOTE:  The Frazier family resided in the Log House until 1927 - 60 years.  The Buchanan resided in the Log House for 60 years until it sold to the Fraziers.   Judge Frazier's son, James B. Frazier, lived in the Log Home during his teen years & was TN Governor 1903-05
  NOTE:  Son Samuel J. Frazier & wife, Fannie Whitworth Frazier;  and daughter, Sallie Frazier Harris & Husband John Harris lived with their Mother, Margaret M. Frazier until their deaths; except that Samuel's wife, when the land sold, moved to Murfreesboro & lived with her son, Neal J. Frazier, until her death. Neal J. Frazier was born in this Log Home, and later became Dean of MTSU, Murfreesboro, TN.
  NOTE:  Fannie Whitworth Frazier was a granddaughter of Lucinda & James Buchanan; so, once again, 'Buchanan' descendants of ole James & Lucinda were living in the Buchanan Log House and remained there until 1927. So, perhaps one could say that Buchanans actually lived in the Log House for 105 years!
1927 L  L. Payne & wife Camille Dodson Payne (from Neal D. Frazier)
1946 Joseph E. Stark & wife Sarah Frances Stark  (from L. L. Payne)
