Marion Buchanan - 58th NCT

Yesterday, I had a chance to visit the grave of Marion Buchanan, a private in Companies B and E, 58th North Carolina Troops. He is buried in a cemetery way up on top of a mountain in western Avery County. I think the cemetery was called the Will Buchanan Cemetery. It was four-wheel drive access only trip. Thanks to Walt and Pat for the ride.

Hi, my name is Casey Young and I am researching my family history. Marion Buchanan is my 3rd great-grandfather. Could you tell me where I could find this grave yard? Thanks.

Thanks for the note. Marion Buchanan is buried in the Buchanan Cemetery in western Avery County. I have been there once. The trip required a guide, and a four wheel drive ride over a couple of different logging roads.
