Looking for ancestors and descendants of ggrandfather George Washington Buckhannon born about 1870 ?.
Married Cannie Long probably MO about 1890.
my grandfather Addie Buckhannan born Hollywood, Dunklin cty, MO 1893.
Family later moved to Mississippi Cty, ARK.
remained there until 1930's then moved to Greene Cty, ARK near Bono outside of Jonesboro, ARK.
Cannie Long died early 1900's leaving 5 children.
George Washington Buckhannan's 2nd wife was Ellie Guinn mother of next 14 children.
George fathered total of 19 children.
Sometime in 1930's family changed spelling of their name to Buchannan due teacher at school telling children Buckhannan was wrong way to their last spell name.
Given most of this info by my mother born in 1923. Mother also says that George Washington Buckhannan's father murdered a man and ran away leaving his wife and children behind.
